Las Salinas del Bebedero, Argentina (photo)

Las Salinas del Bebedero

Las Salinas del Bebedero is a salt marsh located in the Lagunas de Guanacache marshes (marshland in western Argentina in the San Juan provinces), stretching for almost 200 km on the lands of the three western provinces of Argentina.

Salinas del Bebedero is located 42 km southwest of San Luis and 15 km south of the city of Balde, in a tectonic depression formed during the Cenozoic era.

Its area reaches 6,500 hectares!

Salt has been mined here on an industrial scale since 1900, when the water in Laguna del Bebedero began to evaporate rapidly. Extracted salt is used not only as an additive to food, but also used to purify water and create chemical compounds.

This place attracts tourists from all over the world – the photos against the backdrop of the endless salt desert, shining under the sun’s rays, are simply incredible!

Hawaiian Islands

E komo mai (e komo mai) – translated from colloquial Hawaiian means “Welcome”!

As you might have guessed, the photographs show the Hawaiian Islands – an archipelago of volcanic origin from islands and atolls located in the North Pacific Ocean.

The islands got their name from the largest island – Hawaii, and it in turn comes from the proto-Polynesian word “Hawaiki”, which translates as “place of the Gods” or “Homeland”.

“Place of the Gods” is unique in nature, as you can see for yourself by reading some facts about the archipelago.

  • Of all coral reefs in the United States, about 80% are in the Hawaiian Islands;
  • Kilauea Iki on the Big Island – the most active volcano in the world, Haleakala Crater on Maui – the world’s largest dormant volcano;
  • The average rainfall per year is 1210 cm, and Mount Waialeale is among the world leaders in precipitation;
  • Oahu has the best surfing beaches that attract a huge number of tourists;
  • On the island of Molokai there are the highest sea cliffs in the world, with a height of 1100 to 1200 meters above sea level;
  • The official Hawaiian gem, black coral, which is used in jewelry, takes fifty years to mature;
  • The height of the peak of Mauna Kea, a dormant volcano, is 4,205 m above sea level, and its underwater base is over 10,000 m, which surpasses Everest!

Hawaii is definitely a real paradise that has been associated with warmth and relaxation among people all over the world for many years.
