What’s even more remote than visiting the sparsely populated nation of Greenland? Try visiting East Greenland. When the largest town has 2,000 people, you can expect having plenty of space to enjoy the scenery. The scenery is remarkable, too, with giant icebergs, glaciers, and ice floes moving through the sea. The outdoor activities are many, with dog-sledding being one of the best. And despite the slim population, there are people to meet. Here’s a glimpse of what the region has to offer.
A massive stone rising over 650 feet out of the flat ground of Guatape, Colombia, the Piedra de Penol or El Peñon de Guatape, was once worshiped by the Tahamies Indians.
By the 1900s, the massive 10-million-ton rock was seen by local farmers as a nuisance, a giant version of the rocks that the farmers regularly dug out of their fields. In 1954 a group of friends — supposedly at the urging of a local priest — climbed the rock using a series of boards wedged into a crack. These were the first people known to have climbed El Peñon de Guatape.
Climbing the huge stone took five days, but the top of the rock revealed beautiful views and a new species of plant, Pitcairma heterophila. The rock soon became a modest tourist attraction.

Stalbitsa Cave is unique for the spookily radiant light inside it. It’s one of the most beautiful caves in the Devetashko Plateau. It’s situated 2 km to the south-west of the village of Karpachevo. It’s arguable whether Stalbitsa Cave (from the Bulgarian for Stairs) acquired this name because of its terraced profile or the metal stairs at its vertical entrance. There are also several rock steps on the way to the entrance hall.
