Also known as Weheka until the 1940s, Fox Glacier is a village found on the South Island of New Zealand. This magical place is distinct for its mirror-like reflections during a clear day of Aoraki/Mount Cook and Mount Tasman/Rarakiroa, two of New Zealand’s highest peaks. A magnificent bush track walk also follows the lake’s edge.
Petra, Ma’An, Jordan
Al-Khazneh (Arabic for “The Treasury”) is considered one of the most elaborate temples found in Petra, a city of the Nabatean Kingdom, which the Arabs inhabited during ancient times. Like most other infrastructure in the ancient town, this structure was carved from a sandstone rock face. This is one of Jordan’s most famous tourist attractions and the entire region. It became known as The Treasury in the early 19th century by the Bedouins as they believed it to contain treasures.
Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park
Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park is where you find some of the highest mountains and the longest glaciers. This is alpine in the purest sense imaginable- with glaciers, skyscraping peaks, and permanent snow fields, all of which can be enjoyed under a star-studded night sky. The national park is located on the western side of New Zealand’s South Island.
