Adam Bridge

Adam Bridge alias Rama Bridge is a narrow ridge of sands and rocks , mostly dry, which connects Mannar Island Sri Langka) with Pamban Island (India), about 18 miles (3000 km). It is said that the existency of Adam Bridge to be around one to two million years.
This statement is confirmed by The Srilangkan Archeology Department also.
It's quite easy to observe Adam bridge above sea level, while it's only stagnate around 1,2 metres inside water(when tides periode).

Now let's see to another version of Adam Bridge. Folklore said that Adam Brige has relation with Ramayana story, which is built by ape army under Rama supervition, as the connection way to Alengka country, where Shinta kidnapped by Rahwana, to rescue her.
Adam Bridge is also named Ram Sethu (India language), which is seen as one of Hinduism's holliest sites. but it is being destroyed by the Sethu Samudram Shipping Canal Project (SCCP) for creating a navigable waterway in the narrowsea dividing two countries.
Ram Sethu for Hinduism follower is considered as a proof of ancient activity, which is supported by Teri formations, a pool of mesolithic and microlithic tools, indicating there was once lived strong humans habitation.

Here is the way the "Srimad Bhagavatam" describes the event:

Text 22 nara-devatvam apannah sura-karya-cikirsaya samudra-nigrahadini cakre viryany atah param
"In the eighteenth incarnation (of Lord Krishna), the Lord appeared as King Rama. In order to perform some pleasing work for the demigods, He exhibited superhuman powers by controlling the Indian Ocean and then killing the atheist King Ravana, who was on the other side of the sea" - Srimad Bhagavatam

Angel Falls
Angel Falls is one the greatest natural wonders in our earth. This huge tower of water has 979 meters height (3,212 ft) of Auyantepui. In venezuela, Angel Falls mostly known as "El Salto Angel", which is has 19 times the height of Niagara Falls. It is located in the Canaima National Park, in the Gran Sabana region of Bolivar Stat n and activity around 8000 to 9000 years B.P and as recent as 4000 years. On Sri Langka, there are indications of human habitant extending to late Pleistocene (about 13.000 B.P) based on findings of bone and fossil of animal.
e, at the isolated jungle region of Venezuela. While local Indians named it "Kerekupai-Meru", means "falls of the water in to the deepest site", in Pemon language. But considered this, the falls can not be seen on cloudy days. Yet between May and November, Angel Falls will have more spectacular view.

The heights of Kerepakupai Meru causing the water before fall down the ground turned into midst, which is taken effect by wind. This midst can be felt a mile away. The base of the falls feeds into the Kerep River (also known as Rio Guava), which flows to the Churun River. Angel Falls is also isolated area where the nearest road ends 110 to the north miles. Indian tribe believes that Angel Falls is a mystic land of the thereafter. The finding of this massive water falls actually is an incident and not really cool (on my opinion ^.^)-- While Jimmy Angel and his wife, along with another two companions, tried to find gold and got struck at
the top of Auyantepui in 1937. They had to track for 11 days before finally found human beings.

Giant Crystal Cave
Discovered by two miners excavating a new tunnel for industrias Penoles, the famous Crystal Cave is located at an underground in Amish country, near Kutztown Pennsylvania, translucent beams of gypsum as long as 36 feet (11 meters).
According to the journal Geology, Garcia-Ruiz, crystal cave created by a stable natural environment, consistent temperature around steamy 136 degrees Fahrenheit (58 degrees Celcius), and the cave was filled by mineral rich water that gave supplement for the growth of crystal we saw today.

"There is no other place on the planet," García-Ruiz said, "where the mineral world reveals itself in such beauty."

Volcano activity that began 26 million years ago created Naica mountain and causing high temperature anhydrite, which is the anhydrous—lacking water—form of gypsum.
When magma underneath the mountain cooled, anhydrite began to dissolve (when the temperature below 50 degrees Celcius). The liquid of anhydrite will enriched the water with
sulfate and calcium molecules, which for million years have been filled the caves in the form of huge selenite gypsum crystals.

"There is no limit to the size a crystal can reach," García-Ruiz said.

The only reason now we can see this cave because the mining company keep pump out the water, and if the pumping is stopped, the cave will again immerse with water and the crystal will grow again, as it is said that there is no limitation for the crystal to keep growing.
So now, we have a chance, to keep it dry so the generations may admire the crystal, or give it back to nature, and regrow.

Singing Dunes
Singing sand or barking sand is sand that produces sound in low or high frequency. However, there are some terms and conditions to create sound:
1. The sand grains have to be round and between 0.1 and 0.5 mm in diameter
2. The sand contains silica
3. The sand needs to be a certain humidity

Singing sand dunes is the natural sound phenomenon of up to 150 decibels, for several minutes occurs in 35 dessert location all over the world. The sound mostly loud, low pitch, rumble. Examples of singing sand dunes include California's Kelso Dunes and Eureka Dunes, sugar sand beaches and Warren Dunes in southwestern Michigan, Sand Mountain in Nevada, the Booming Dunes in the Namib Desert, Africa, Porth Oer (also known as Whistling Sands) near Aberdaron in Wales, Indiana Dunes in Indiana, Barking Sands in Hawaii, and Singing Beach in Manchester-by-the-Sea, Massachusetts.

Dean's Blue Hole

Dean's Blue Hole is the world's deepest blue hole (underwater sinkhole), this plunges 202 metres (663 ft) to the ocean floor, in a bay west of Clarence Town on Long Island, Bahamas.
This hole created by rainwater that submerged through limestone bedrock into watertable of glacial sea level during Pleistocene epoch (ice age), about 15,000 years ago. The caves is shaped while sea surface is lower 100-120 meters. When the end of ice age, the ice melted down and in a moment, the water covered the cave.
Dean's Hole has a round or circular shape at the surface, but it will ended to a cavern while it goes to 20 meters (66 ft) down, with diameter of 100 meters (330 ft).
