Out of This World: The 25 Most Surreal Landscapes on the Planet

Fodor's Logo By Wibke Carter of Fodor's | Slide 1 of 26: The terraced ride paddies of Yuanyang in Yunnan Province are breathtaking, with curving lines and vivacious colors. Orange, purple, yellow, and blue hues of natural light cascade down the terraces which sit at elevations as high as 6,500 feet. The Yuanyang Rice Terraces were built by the Hani over thousands of years of history. In some places, nearly 3,000 terraces form a network of ditches and canals that move rainfall and spring water from one place to another. When the sun rises, the terraces become reflective mirrors of the clouds and sky, making the scenery look like a stairway to heaven.

These 25 surreal landscapes should be on your bucket list.
