The Valley of the Kings, Egypt
Also known as ‘the Valley of the Gates of the Kings’, the Valley of Kings is located in the Theban Hills in west region of the Nile, in Egypt. This place is a major achievement in the history of the archeological excavations including ‘the Tomb of Tutankhamen’ and many of other. Thus, this place attracts a large number of history lovers and archeologists. However, it is in extreme danger due to the tourists ignoring rules, using flash photography, touching fragile surfaces as well as a damaging fungus, which may led to cause strict damage or might completely vanish the valley in next fifty years.
The Dead Sea
Bounded by Israel and the West Bank (W) and Jordan (E), the Dead Sea is the next in the list of attraction that may disappear in the upcoming years. Famous as one of the saltiest water bodies in the world and lowest dry points on earth, it is facing a high evaporation that is leading to level fluctuation since many years. According to scientific calculations, Dead Sea has been thinning around three feet every year. With this rate of evaporation and erosion, this scenic and iconic therapeutic natural wonder will be vanished in next few decades.
