Planet Earth is a world of wonders; but even among so many of them, there isn’t anything quite like a sunrise or a sunset. The sky is brushed with shades of sprightly colour strokes like in celebration of the beginning of a day and an end to it.
There is no calm more soothing than that of a daybreak. Succumb to the silence at the world’s favourite sunrise spots, as there’s nothing more to do than gape at this seraphic shift at this heavenly hour.
Angkor Wat, Cambodia
Angkor Wat has a pristine and poignant presence at all hours, but during dawning, it is a surreal spectacle to savour. Here’s a picture to support that fact!
Mt. Fuji, Japan
If you dare to attempt the Mt. Fuji climb, there comes with it a one-in-a-lifetime chance to see one of the world’s most extraordinary sunrises. If not, go along the popular Yoshida trail to see the sun come up in the sky.
There are other things to do than take a hot balloon ride in Cappadocia. Like, watching a scintillating sunrise up from a hot balloon.
Grand Canyon, Arizona, USA
Soothing shades of purple melt into sparkling tints of bronze, crimson and orange against the awe-inspiring scenery of the rocky Grand Canyon to make up for one of the best sunrise views ever.
There are two ways to watch the sunrise in Uluru: by staying in the car park to view its majestic form as a silhouette or from the top of the dune to enjoy a vivid view, all the way to the horizon.
Masai Mara, Kenya
The open plains of the reserve are filled with dramatic light and colours during the sunrise hour. The exotic fauna – giraffes, zebras and elephants – seem stunning in the fiery crimson silhouette.
Taj Mahal, Agra, India
Catching a glimpse of the famous white, marble dome is a privilege not many are privy to. Put it on your bucket list and remember to thank us the day you cross it off that list.
The Great Wall of China, China
The golden hour of sunrise offers nothing short of ‘golden’ views at The Great Wall of China. Stroked in a reddish-orange tinge, the landscape is so vivacious, so vibrant that all you can do is to gape in awe.
Which ones have you ticked off your list and which ones are at the top of that list?
