Whenever our eyes behold a place that is undeniably magnificent, the human mind is boggled for a moment. We wonder how it would be like to be there in person and witness the spectacle ourselves. Many places in the world are renowned for their captivating landscapes or shimmering water tops. Indulging ourselves in wanting to see these places, we present to you in no particular order the top 10 most beautiful places in the world!
List of 10 World Most Beautiful Places:
10 – Shangrila, Pakistan
Mountain peaks as high as the eye can see carve into the sky as a “mystical” lake is visible in between it all. A grand sight all together, Shangrila is known for the orchards and greenery that surround this lake, complimenting to its beauty. In some opinions it is said that Shangrila itself is a being that exists!
9 – Mount Everest, Nepal
The Highest Peak of the world and the heaven for mountain climbers and every climber have a dream to visit once in their lifetime. It is 8800 meters above the sea level and more than 3000 people have climbed to the Mount Everest Summit.
8 – The Great Barrier Reef, Australia
Crisp blue waters, shimmering against the water in majestic beauty are home to a coral reef that covers 300,000 square kilometers. The Great Barrier Reef is sprawling with life, whales and dolphins are a common spectacle as well as being home to around four thousand different types of mollusks, and fifteen hundred different types of fish. The Great Barrier Reef is also one of the wonders of the world and it is visible from very high altitudes.
7 – The Grand Canyon
The Grand Canyon is one of nature’s most beautiful creations. No man has interfered with the conception of this great gorge. The Colorado River cut out The Grand Canyon through water erosion over a period of six million years! The Grand Canyon is around 277 miles in complete length and its width differs between four to eighteen miles! The Grand Canyon was justly named in my opinion.
6 – Canadian Rockies, Canada
The Canadian Rockies are home to many different types of animals, as well as people. The Canadian Rockies are truly a sight to behold from a distance, but as you get closer, a daunting, bone-chilling effect ensues within. The sheer size of these mountains goes to prove the magnificence and grandness of nature!
5 – The Egyptian Pyramids, Egypt
The Egyptian Pyramids are known and proven to be manmade. The gargantuan size of these monumental tombs is utterly baffling. The Sphinx in particular is one of man’s greatest achievements. Being created over decades and decades of labor and toil, these monuments prove that man itself is one of nature’s greatest creations.
4 – Taj Mahal, India
The Taj Mahal is another manmade spectacle which is at the epitome of human architecture. Created by Shah Jahan in memory for the Queen Mumtaz Mahal, The Taj Mahal has been listed as one of the wonders of the world!
3 – Cape Town, South Africa
Natural beauty is illuminating vibrantly from the over head shots of Cape Town. Home to some of the greatest architectural advancements, Cape Town not only is known for its buildings, but also for the great landscapes and beaches that makes it whole! Tourism is a flourishing trade in Cape Town and very justly as well. Put this one on your list of vacation spots, you do not want to miss out on it.
2 – Cancun, Mexico
One of the world’s most popular vacation resorts, Cancun is on the coast of Mexico. Home to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, which is laden with sparkly white sand, Cancun is one place that everyone marvels at!

Lake Saiful-Mulk is the most beautiful place of the world and it is highly regarded as one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. Saiful-Mulk lies in the heart of mountain peaks near the Kaghan Valley. Saiful-Mulk even has its own fairy tale, which was about fairies being seen hovering above the lake in comparison to how moonlight dances on top of water!
