Flaming Crater, Derweze - Turkmenistan

Derweze is an isolated village in Turkmenistan with a very sparse population of just 350 inhabitants located in the middle of the Karakum Desert. The Derweze Area is rich in natural gas. Whilst drilling in 1971, geologists tapped into a cavern filled with this gas, and the ground beneath the drilling rig collapsed, leaving a huge gaping wound in the Earth's very crust about 70m (230ft) in diameter.

Petra - Jordan

Petra in Jordan is one of those places that have to be seen to be believed. The giant red mountains and vast mausoleums are one of the true wonders of the world carved over centuries out of nature by man. It is a truly unique city built by the industrious Nabataeans more than 2000 years ago, where it was used as a trade junction for silk and spice, and linked the trade routes of China, India with Egypt, Greece and Rome, all of whose influences can still be seen in the remains.

A Garden Lady in India's Cold Mountain Desert.

By Shivya, 10/23/2011 - 03:53

I sit by a Stupa on an elevation above the shore of the Spiti River, shielding myself from the sun. It'll be a good fifteen minutes before the ball of fire sinks behind the mountain range and relieves human skins. Such penetrating sunrays would make a great premise for a sunscreen advert, I muse.
