Posted in: TRAVEL
Humans are genetically made to travel and wander so it is no surprise that the first inhabitants of this planet are called traveling nomads. One shouldn’t feel guilty when he has a strong desire for or impulse to travel and explore the world because darling, this is called wanderlust. There’s always a reason why we go out, travel abroad and see more than we can because this world is filled with natural and archaeological wonders worth taking a look. Here’s a list of some World UNESCO Heritage Sites which are in danger of being wiped out from the face of the earth so might as well take that suitcase and book your next flight. Check out part two here.
1. Archaeological Remains of the Bamiyan Valley, Afghanistan. The remains of the Bamiyan Valley are nestled in the towering mountains of the Hindu Kush and is situated 264 km west of Kabul. The ruins are a phenomenal archetype of the Gandhara school of Buddhist art, an art form that existed from the 1st to the 13th centuries. However due to the continuing rift with the Taliban, the world became a witness to the destruction of its two prominent standing Buddha statues in 2001.
2. Belize Barrier Reef. Belize is no stranger to travelers as it is considered to be the second largest reef system in the world and is well-acclaimed for its “Great Blue Hole.” This tropical paradise is in danger of being destroyed due to large-scale mangrove cutting to encourage urban development in the said area.Subscribe to UpdatesRelated Articles
