Natural wonders of Iceland

This island country is located in north part of Europe. Most of us knows that. But do you know what this small country hides? It hides big nature contrast, it is a land of fire and ice. Land of earthquakes, volcanoes, black sand beaches, hot springs and what not. Let’s check it out together!

Geysir and Strokkur
This is earliest geyser known. Well at least when someone noticed it and decided that this natural phenomena needs a name. So all the geysers got the name from this one. This one can hurl the water 70 meters above ground, but in past few years it was silent, eruptions stopped. But only 50 meters south is another geyser named Strokkur which is still active and you can see boiling water erupting every few minutes. It reaches up to 50 meters in the sky, but usually about 20 or so.

Underwater pyramids in Japan

A structure thought to be the world's oldest building, nearly twice the age of the great pyramids of Egypt, has been discovered. The rectangular stone ziggurat under the sea off the coast of Japan could be the first evidence of a previously unknown Stone Age civilization, say archeologists.
The monument is 600ft wide and 90ft high and has been dated to at least 8000BC. The oldest pyramid in Egypt, the Step Pyramid at Saqqara, was constructed more than 5,000 years later..

Yonaguni Island is located in western Japan. Yonaguni became famous in the mid 80-x, when divers discovered the mysterious underwater rock terraces and pyramids with sharp corners. Until now, there is debate, but nobody knows what secrets are fraught with the island. Scientists are inclined to believe that these pyramids were created artificially many years ago an unknown civilization that vanished from the face of the earth.
