There are an estimated 10 billion tons of salt in total, and during the rainy season, the world's largest salt desert becomes the world's largest mirror.
7 Turquoise ice, Lake Baikal – Russia

. 4 Glowworm Caves, Waitomo – New Zealand
The Waitomo Glowworm Caves are located on the North Island of New Zealand. Little larvae called Glowworm took this cave as their home. These larvae, living in the dark cave, shine light on them to find food. These small landlords are actually called Arachnocampa larvae. These larvae are attached to the small stalactites hanging from the ceiling. The reason for the light scattering of the Arachnocampa larvae are chemical reactions that produce the enzyme luciferin.
. 3 The Great Blue Hole, Ambergris Caye – Belize
The Great Blue Hole is a large underwater hole off the coast of Belize. The hole is circular, over 300 meters wide and 125 meters deep. The sinkhole was originally created as a limestone cave during the last ice age, when the sea level was much lower. When the ocean began to rise, the cave system flooded and eventually collapsed, creating a vertical cave in the ocean.
. 2 Underwater Waterfall – Mauritius Island
Mauritius is one of the younger islands on this planet that was created about 8 million years ago by volcanic activity under the ocean. The island is now on a so-called submarine plateau or ocean self. This ego is no more than 150 meters below sea level and is the largest of its kind in the world.
