3 South Amerika Must Visit Wonder,  South America is known for many things.

3 South Amerika Must Visit Wonder: South America is known for many things – incredible culture, gorgeous beaches, amazing food. But most striking might be the continent’s sheer geographical scale and diversity. South America is home to the world’s longest mountain range, largest rainforest, and (depending on who you ask) largest river. There are glaciers in the extreme south, active volcanoes tracing the line of the Andes, hot and cold climate deserts, massive waterfalls, canyons, and salt flats. Here we present some of South America’s most awe-inspiring wonders.

MACHU PICCHU PERU 

The sprawling hilltop city of Machu Picchu is the most famous remnant of Inca civilization and one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. No trip to Peru would be complete without an ascent up the mountainside to this ancient citadel, 2,430m above sea level. Machu Picchu was long thought to be legendary; it wasn’t until 1911 when the American historian Hiram Bingham stumbled upon it and brought it to international attention.

Although it’s possible to take a train to the top, you’ll see more if you go on foot. The Inca Trail, located in the Andes mountain range, is perhaps the most popular route for reaching Machu Picchu

The mysterious splendor of one of the world’s most famous manmade wonders.

 EASTER ISLAND (MOAI SCULPTURES) CHILE 

Located in the South Pacific more than 2,000 miles off the Chilean coast, Easter Island’s not the easiest place to reach. (If you’re interested, the easiest access is by air from Santiago or Tahiti.) But isolation has helped preserve the 1,500-year-old mysterious congregation of volcanic rock sculptures (MAOI) that’s the island’s biggest claim to fame. After exploring the unique landscape, relax on an uncrowded beach and ponder one of the most mysterious places on Earth.

 LAS LAJAS SANCTUARY  (Santuario de Las Lajas) COLOMBIA 

is arguably considered the most beautiful church in Colombia. It’s also considered by many to be one of the most beautiful churches in the world.

Las Lajas Sanctuary is a minor basilica church located in Ipiales, which is located in the southern Colombian Department of Nariño. The church sits on a 130 feet tall bridge over the Guáitara river. In addition, it’s located less than seven miles from the Ecuadorian border.

Las Lajas Sanctuary is a Gothic Revival style church built inside a canyon of the Guáitara river. 

So, it’s often been called a jewel of engineering. This Roman Catholic church is dedicated to the veneration of Our Lady of Las Lajas Ipiales.

Surprisingly, Las Lajas continues to remain off the foreign tourists’ radar, partially because of its location. However, it would be ideal to spend a day or two in Ipiales to marvel at the alluring beauty of the cathedral.
