These famous bamboo groves just west of Kyoto are easily accessible from the main street of Arashimaya, just north of the Tenryu-ji Temple. It’ll be hard to get lost here, as only one path cuts through the thick troves of bamboo. ⁠

It’s a short-but-magical walk that’ll make you feel completely transported just a few minutes from the city’s bustling streets. ⁠

Drop a ❤️ below if you're adding this to your bucket list!⁠

    Mount Rainier stands so dominant over Washington state’s landscape that we simply refer to it as “The Mountain.” It is one of the most massive volcanoes in the entire world, dominating the Cascade Range. ⁠

    This 14,410-foot active stratovolcano is the most glaciated peak in the contiguous United States, and Mount Rainier National Park has 25 major glaciers within it. ⁠

    The park’s old-growth forests, flowery subalpine meadows, and icy alpine heights make it one of the most memorable national parks in the United States. ⁠

    Slovenia’s Lake Bled is the most photographed lake in a country filled with beautiful lakes — and for good reason. ⁠

    The spires of the Pilgrimage Church of the Assumption of Maria tower over Lake Bled in Transylvania, creating a stark contrast to the cold waters below and the Slovenian Alps in the background. ⁠

    The scene is at once natural and historic, conjuring the beauty of both Gothic-era architecture and the Eastern European high country.⁠

    The concept of rice terraces in Bali began when farmers were struggling to grow rice on steep mountains and deep gorges. Such un-ideal locations made it difficult for rice farming. ⁠

    Balinese farmers then developed an irrigation system for paddy fields called ‘sunbak’ which allows for farmers to grow across and also up the slopes of hills and mountains, thus creating these picturesque rice fields. ⁠

    You haven’t really seen the New Mexico desert until you’ve seen White Sands, a remarkable place that looks like the Sahara Desert collided with Aruba! That’s because its sand is made of gypsum, a mineral salt left by a long-lost lake tens of millions of years ago.⁠

    Western Australia is the largest state in Australia, a vast area of over 976,000 square miles facing the Indian Ocean to the west and north and the Southern Ocean along its southern border. ⁠

    The state’s population is about 2.6 million, with 92 percent living in the southwestern corner where the capital of Perth sits. North of Perth, the state is sparsely populated, isolated, and perfect for those with an adventurous spirit who are looking for an epic road trip. Here, you can swim with whale sharks and visit Australia’s Coral Coast. ⁠

    Switzerland’s true appeal lies in the more remote reaches of this small, mountainous country. There are dozens of adorable villages throughout Switzerland, many of them set against the towering Alps or alongside tranquil lakes.⁠

    To pile on the charm even further, some of the villages are so isolated that the only way to reach them is by mountain train, cable car, or on foot — but the sceneries awaiting you are well worth putting in the effort to get there! 😍⁠
