2. Mount Agung, Bali
Sure, the trek up Mount Agung, in Bali, is an arduous one. However, the pay out for your effort is well worth every drop of sweat and blister. The sweeping view across the lake to Mount Batur (another well known peak in Bali) is downright awe-inspiring.
3. Uluru, Australia
Dubbed the “devil’s marbles”, Central Australia offers hikers a view that’s one of the most heavenly on earth. Take in the sights as the sun bursts into red flame over the rocks and gradually turns to orange, blue, green, purple, and it dips and disappears in an inky black yawn behind this natural wonder.
4. Inle Lake, Burma
Take the time to close the day at Myanmar/Burma’s, Inle Lake, and you’ll be treated to a sunset over the spectacular mountainous backdrop, with fishing boats gently bobbing to and fro on the lush floating lake gardens. You can even stay in one of the many stilt houses on the lake and watch the scene every night during your stay. A standard, single, stilt bungalow starts at $90 USD per night.
5. Largo di Varano, Puglia, Italy
If you venture to the Mediterranean, on the boot of Italy, it’s worth a meander to Puglia’s unspoiled beaches and rocky shores where you’ll find Largo di Varano (or Varano Lake), located on the quaint Gargano Peninsula. Stay in one of the small nearby towns and take a walk at dusk for one of the most unique and memorable sunsets.
