The East Cliff of Jebel al-Madhbah in Jordon offer breathtaking views for a couple of reasons. The natural beauty of the cliffs are enhanced by the fact that they hold the Royal Tombs of Petra.

The cliffs of Dingli are located on the Western coast of Malta and at about 253 meters above sea level they are the highest point of the Maltese Islands. The views from the top are amazing, but the cliffs look just as awe inspiring when viewed from a boat. Buskett Gardens and Verdala Palace are both visible from the cliffs.


16. Pictured Rocks, Michigan (Photo source: Manuel Secher)

With a name like Pictured Rocks it is unsurprising that these colorful sandstone cliffs make for beautiful photos. The minerals in the rocks provide the cliff with its colorful appearance and it also features shallow caves along with other natural formations.

Smile at whatever happens.

The steep cliff of Preikestolen, or Pulpit Rock as it is known in English, rises 1982 feet above Lysefjorden in Norway. The angular shape of the cliff was formed during the ice age and the green valleys of the Ryfylke region are visible from the top.

The stunning cliffs of Angels Landing make for great views and one of the most thrilling hikes in the area. A trail leads to the top where hikers can take in the spectacular views of Zion Canyon, but the sheer cliffs are not recommended for anyone who suffers from vertigo.
