10 Most Beautiful National Parks Of The World - Part 2

Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

The Serengeti National Park is a large national park in Serengeti area, Tanzania. It is most famous for its annual migration of over one and a half million white bearded (or brindled) wildebeest and 250,000 zebra. Serengeti National Park is widely regarded as the best wildlife reserve in Africa due to its density of predators and prey. The park covers 14,763 km2 (5,700 sq mi) of grassland plains and savanna as well as riverine forest and woodlands. The park lies in the north of the country, bordered to the north by the national Tanzania and Kenyan border, where it is continuous with the Maasai Mara National Reserve.

Parque Nacional Torres del Paine, Chile

Torres del Paine National Park  is a national park encompassing mountains, a glacier, a lake, and river-rich areas in southern Chilean Patagonia. The Cordillera del Paine is the centerpiece of the park. It lies in a transition area between the Magellanic subpolar forests and the Patagonian Steppes. The park is located 112 km (70 mi) north of Puerto Natales and 312 km (194 mi) north of Punta Arenas. Bernardo O’Higgins National Park is its neighbour to the west, while Los Glaciares National Park is located to the north in Argentine territory.

Swiss National Park, Switzerland

The Swiss National Park is located in the canton of Graubünden in the east of Switzerland. It is part of the worldwide UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. As of 2009, it is the only National Park in Switzerland, though there are plans to create more. It has an area of 174.2 km² and is the largest protected area of the country. It was founded on 1 August 1914, the national holiday of Switzerland. It was one of the earliest national parks in Europe. In the park, one is not allowed to leave the road, make fire or sleep outside the Chamanna Cluozza; the mountain hut located in the park. It is also forbidden to disturb the animals or the plants, or to take home anything found in the park. Dogs are not allowed, not even on a leash.

Lake District National Park, England

 The Lake District National Park is located in Cumbria in the north-west of England and is the largest of the English National Parks and the second largest in the United Kingdom. It includes nearly all of the Lake District. The National Park was formed in 1951 to protect the landscape by restricting unwelcome change by industry or commerce. Almost all of the land in the Park is in private ownership. 3.9% of the land belongs to the Lake District National Park Authority. The National Trust owns some land of significant landscape value. In common with all other National Parks in England, there is no restriction on entry to or movement within the park along public routes, but access to cultivated land is usually restricted to public footpaths. The Lake District has so far failed to be approved as a World Heritage Site, partly because of activities, such as commercial forestry, which have an impact on its landscapes. It is still hoped that it can qualify for this designation in the category of cultural landscape.

Fiordland National Park, New Zealand

Fiordland National Park occupies the southwest corner of the South Island of New Zealand. It is the largest of the 14 national parks in New Zealand, with an area of 12,500 km², and a major part of the Te Wahipounamu World Heritage site. The park is administered by the Department of Conservation. During the cooler past, glaciers carved many deep fiords, the most famous (and most visited) of which is Milford Sound. Other notable fiords include Doubtful Sound and Dusky Sound. From one of the peaks within Fiordland National Park, a view of Mount Aspiring/Tititea to the far north can be observed.
