Discoverer Chilean National Park Torres del Paine The famous Scottish writer Lady Florence Dixie is considered to be one of the first travelers to visit this amazing nature reserve. Snow-capped mountain peaks, rivers and waterfalls, glaciers and lakes - such a natural diversity did not leave her indifferent, under the impression of the trip she wrote the book "Through Patagonia" in 1880. Much has changed since then: Torres del Paine acquired the status of a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, tourists from all over the world come here, but the enchanting beauty of the mountain landscapes still remains an unsolved mystery.
The name Torres del Paine is translated from the language of the Araucanian Indians as “Blue Towers” for a reason: the park's trademark is three stone spiers soaring into the sky. Florence called them Cleopatra's needles because they reminded her of the ancient Egyptian obelisks removed from Egypt in the 19th century and installed in Paris, London and New York.
Chilean National Park is a favorite place for travelers, because there are not only clearly marked mountain trails, but also small houses in which tourists can spend the night. The park has not only scenic walking paths, but also well-equipped routes for avid climbers. In addition, extreme sports enthusiasts in Torres del Paine can go rafting and kayaking. Particular attention is paid to environmental protection in the reserve: camping is allowed only in clearly designated areas, making fires is strictly prohibited. Hunting was prohibited in the park more than 50 years ago, so you can meet a large number of animals here. The most common are guanacos, cougars, foxes, as well as Chilean deer, which are under threat of complete extermination. A Chilean deer, comparable in size to a hare, is depicted on the country's coat of arms.

However, there are also such monumental buildings that had a completely practical purpose, necessary for the struggle and survival of a people or tribe. And it may not necessarily be some kind of castles surrounded by thick walls and deep moats. On the slopes of the North Caucasus, stone watchtowers are scattered, which are like lighthouses against the backdrop of the sea
A-Shi-Sle-Pa (in another version, Ah-Shi-Sle-Pah) is a huge wasteland, where there are no animals, no water, no plants, no cellular communications, and certainly there are no human settlements for many kilometers around. But there are absolutely stunning landscapes of conical and mushroom-shaped rock formations, cairns, fossils of various mollusks and insects, as well as dinosaur bones

As you know, the sun, air and water are traditionally ranked among our best friends! And if there is more than enough sunlight in summer, and it is enough to get out of the house for a walk in the fresh air, then finding water resources is always somewhat problematic. A real discovery for those wishing to splash in the azure water can be the world's largest swimming pool San Alfonso del Mar in the Algarrobo resort in Chile
Svalbard is an amazing place on earth, where the arctic cold has formed a unique flora and fauna, and huge glaciers and crystal waterfalls fascinate anyone who manages to visit here.
