The world is full of beautiful places. There are some, however, that are so breathtaking it is almost impossible to believe they are real.
- Mount Roraima, Venezuela/Brazil/Guyana
This surreal mountain seems to float on the clouds, and its unique aesthetics inspired Pixar’s Oscar winning movie “Up.”

Bamboo is a unique plant, and this forest is a wonderland unlike anything else in the world. Paths open between infinite rows of green bamboo, where monkeys play, and visitors stand in awe.

In this ancient city, clay color domes stand out from the lush green of the forest for an incredible view. One of the most popular ways to see the city is from a hot air balloon.
