Natural Wonders of Asia

 

Visit the 194 natural wonders of Asia, from Yangtze Gorges in China, to Mount Ugi in Japan, and the Annapurna in Western Nepal. The dual power of nature is demonstrated through the elements at play in Asia. Fire-spewing volcanoes raise new lands from their summits.Ocean-worlds house water-kingdoms. Finally earth-bound and sky-stretching mountains--figures of inspiration, claimants of lives--rimind us of both the compatibility and fragility of the human condition against such potentially terrifying forces
Yangtze Gorge-China
 
Annapurna, Nepal
Annapurna is a massif of the Himalayas in north-central Nepal, forming a ridge 30 miles (48 km) long between the basins of the Kali Gandak and Marsyandi rivers. It contains four main summits, two of which, Annapurna I (26,545 feet [8,091 m]) and II (26,040 feet [7,937 m]), stand at the western and eastern ends of the range, respectively; III (24,786 feet [7,555 m]) and IV (24,688 feet [7,525 m]) lie between them.[3]
