This breathtaking scenery of gorgeous flowers can be found at the Kawachi Fuji Garden in Kitakyushu, Japan. The best time to walk through the tunnel is late April to mid-May. If a stroll through here doesn’t make you feel like you’re in a Disney movie, nothing will.

Located 980 feet below the Chihuahua Desert, this giant cave of crystals is home to the largest crystals discovered on Earth, the biggest being 39 feet long and 55 tons in weight.
