Everest."  PHOTOGRAPH BY KIWISOUL, GETTY IMAGES.

"The Longest Beaches In The World.

While some beaches are unique in their temperature and sand color, others stand 

out for their long reaches along coasts. Cox's Bazar (pictured) is the third longest 

beach in the world, and one of Bangladesh's most popular tourist hotspots."



"The Longest Coral Reefs In The World.

The 1,553 mile long Great Barrier Reef in Australia is the longest coral reef in the 

world. A Hawksbill turtle swims among colorful fish in Great Barrier Reef, the 

largest coral reef on earth."

*"Europe in pictures.




"The Trans-Siberian railway, which passes through Russia, is the longest railway 

line in the world."



"The Mediterranean Sea dominates the climate of Southern Europe. The 

Mediterranean is one of the most commercial and well-explored marine regions 

in the world, but still has pristine protected zones. Here, a moray eel peeks out 

from a Mediterranean reef in Benidorm, Spain."

Songs of Europe: 



*"North America in pictures.


"Cameron Pass, part of the Rocky Mountains in the U.S. state of Colorado, is part 

of the Great Divide. The Great Divide separates water that flows west into the 

Pacific Ocean and water that flows north, east, and south into the Arctic and 

Atlantic Oceans and the Gulf of Mexico. Although there are other continental 

divides on the North American continent, the Great Divide is the most prominent. 

It follows the high peaks of the American and Canadian Rocky Mountains, then 


follows the Sierra Madre Occidental mountains through Mexico."

"A herd of barren-ground caribou runs past a snow-covered forest in the 

Northwest Territories, Canada. Many kinds of animals have adapted to live in the 

cold, subarctic climate of the taiga."

Song of North America: 



*"South America in pictures.

 
"Major divides and continental divides can be major obstacles to navigation, 

communication, and travel. Before the Industrial Revolution, explorers and 

engineers had to portage across major divides, like the ones dividing the Amazon 

River, above, from the Pacific Oceanin South America. To portage is to carry 

boats or other vessels across dry land. For large ships, portaging can be a long, 

difficult, and expensive journey."

"A guanaco, relative of the llama and the alpaca, bounds a fence between zones 

in Torres del Paine National Park, Chile. The wild guanaco range from the snow 

line down to sea level and from Peru south through Chile. While they were once 

overhunted for their wool, they now enjoy the safety of protected areas like the 

national parks of Chile."
