Antelope Canyon, Arizona, USA

Northern Lake Baikal, Russia
The largest freshwater lake on the planet that contains approximately 20 percent of the Earth’s freshwater, Lake Baikal is also the deepest and oldest lake in the world. Famous for its crystal clear waters and unique wildlife, lake Baikal is also home to over two thousand varieties of flora and fauna, of which almost 1,600 are endemic to the lake.

If you wish to see something truly spectacular then Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone National Park should be on the list.
