Capertee Valley

The Capertee Valley is a large valley in New South Wales, Australia, and (135 km (84 mi) north-west of Sydney. It is longer and about 1 kilometre (0.6 mi) wider than the Grand Canyon of Arizona. Despite this, and being only a two and a half hour drive from Australia's largest city, Sydney (135 km (84 mi) NW), the Capertee Valley is little known, in or outside of Australia, except by bird watchers.

Valley of Flowers National Park

Nestled high in West Himalaya, India’s Valley of Flowers National Park is renowned for its meadows of endemic alpine flowers and outstanding natural beauty. This richly diverse area is also home to rare and endangered animals, including the Asiatic black bear, snow leopard, brown bear and blue sheep. The gentle landscape of the Valley of Flowers National Park complements the rugged mountain wilderness of Nanda Devi National Park. Together they encompass a unique transition zone between the mountain ranges of the Zanskar and Great Himalaya, praised by mountaineers and botanists for over a century and in Hindu mythology for much longer.
