Ice Cave, Mutnovsky Volcano, Russia

Incredible ice caves like this one are formed in glaciers surrounding volcanoes. Vents release heat and gases into the ice, creating openings, tunnels and caves from inside the iceberg.

Antelope Canyon, Arizona, USA


It took thousands of years for the persistent wind and water to carve this canyon, which made its walls smooth and fluid-looking. During monsoon season, this canyon can fill up quickly with rain water, and many unwary travellers have lost their life to this sudden outpouring.
