世界上最美丽的十个地方
The Grand Canyon, United States
美国 大峡谷

Native Americans built settlements in the caves within the canyon before the emigration of Europeans. It was also considered to be a site of pilgrimage by the Pueblo people. The first recorded visit to the Grand Canyon by the Europeans was in 1869. Although, it is not the deepest canyon in the world, it is known for its extremely huge size and beautifully intricate landscape. The Grand Canyon National Park is said to be one of the first National Parks in the United States and attracts more than five million visitors a year. Weather conditions in the Grand Canyon vary a great deal between seasons as well as elevation. While winter snow is experienced by the higher elevated forested rims, the inner gorge has a desert temperature because of the low elevation.

在欧洲移民到美洲之前,美国原住民已在峡谷的洞穴里居住。该峡谷被普韦布洛民族奉为一处朝圣之地。根据记录,欧洲人首次来到这个地方时间是在1869年。尽管这不是世界上最深的峡谷,但因其极为恢弘的规模及错综复杂色而享有盛誉。大峡谷国家公园据说是美国第一个的国家公园,每年吸引了超过五百万的游客。尽管,在地势较高被森林覆盖的边缘,冬天白雪皑皑。而峡谷内部因为地势较低则是一片荒漠。

Canadian Rockies, Canada

The majestic Canadian Rockies are the Canadian segment of the North American Rocky mountains. They are a visitor’s wonderland and the playground for western Canada. They are older than the American Rockies and are formed from over thrusting.

加拿大 落基山脉

雄伟壮丽的落基山脉是北美落基山的加拿大部分。这里是旅游者的仙境并成为加拿大西部的游乐场。这里的山脉形成比美国那边的落基山脉时间更早,其原因是由于板块的冲撞。



The Canadian Rockies house five national parks, out of which four of them along with other provincial parks form a combination of a single UNESCO World Heritage Site that consists of beautiful mountain landscapes, lakes, canyons, waterfalls, glaciers, peaks, limestone caves as well as fossils. Mount Robson is the highest peak of the Canadian Rockies and climbing it is considered a challenge. These beautiful mountains are a haven for hikers and walkers alike.

加拿大的落基山脉包括五个国家公园,其中四个与其他的省级公园联合成为了一个联合国教科文组织的世界文化遗产地。这个文化遗产地由美丽的山川景色、湖泊、峡谷、瀑布、冰川、峰顶、石灰石岩洞及化石组成。罗布森山是加拿大国境内的落基山脉的顶峰,攀登其顶峰也是一个不小的挑战。这些美丽的山对于喜欢远足者及步行者来说简直就个天堂!

Petra, Jordan

Described by the UNESCO as “one of the most precious cultural properties of man’s cultural heritage, Petra is an archeological site on the slope of Mount Hor. It is one of the new wonders of the world and is famous for its rock cut architecture.

约旦 佩特拉

被联合国教科文组织称为“人类文化遗产中最珍贵的文化财产”。佩特拉是在何珥山的斜坡上被考古学家发现的。这是世界上新的一个奇迹,并以其岩石掘进的建筑而称著。

This site was kept hidden till 1812 when it was discovered by a Swiss explorer. It was said to have been prepared by God for the Jewish people. Petra once flourished under the Roman empire but a rapid decline began with the Arabian trade being taken elsewhere. Then an earthquake caused a lot of destruction. Tourists throng the place to get a glimpse of the ruins of this beautiful city.

该遗址一直被掩埋,一直到1812年才被一名瑞士的探险者发现。据说,这座建筑是上帝为犹太人建造的。佩特拉在罗马帝国时代盛极一时,但由于阿拉伯的贸易中心的转移到别处而迅速衰落。然后地震又带来了巨大的破坏。旅游者蜂拥而至以一睹这座美丽城市的废墟。

世界上最美丽的十个地方

世界上最美的十个地方

The Iguazu Waterfalls, Argentina-Brazil Border

Heralded as the most beautiful waterfalls in the world, the Iguazu Waterfalls are a true wonder of nature. They are located at the border of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay. While the Argentinean side allows visitors to walk right around the water or explore the National Park; the Brazilian side is known for its panoramic views and splendor.

阿根廷--巴西边境的伊瓜苏瀑布

被公认为世界上最美丽的瀑布,伊瓜苏瀑布的确是自然的奇迹。瀑布位于阿根廷、巴西、巴拉圭三国的边境。瀑布位于阿根廷的那边允许游客绕着水流走或者去探索国家公园。而巴西的那边则以其全景式的视野及其壮观闻名于世。

First Lady, Eleanor Roosevelt, upon seeing these falls is claimed to have exclaimed “poor Niagara.” The area of the falls provides ample opportunities for rock climbing as well as water sports. Iguazu has the distinction of having the greatest annual flow when compared to any other falls in the world.

美国的前第一夫人埃莉诺·罗斯福在见到这一瀑布之后,惊呼道:“尼亚加拉大瀑布太渺小了!”瀑布周围的地区给攀岩及水上运动留下了足够的空间。与世界上其他瀑布相比,伊瓜苏瀑布还有一卓尔不群的优势,那就是它的年径流是最大的。

With all these and many more beautiful places that exist in our world, we are lost for choice and the only way to decide on the places to visit is to follow the heart. While some may love the tranquility of water, others may bury themselves deep in the architectural miracles or the serenity of a small town.

我们的世界有太多美丽的地方了,在这些地方面前,我们常常茫然无措,而决定去哪里就随心吧。有些人比较喜欢水流潺潺的宁静,而另外一些人则喜欢流连于建筑的奇迹或享受小城的静谧。
