10. Kuranda Scenic

During the 3 hours journey from Jakarta to Bandung you will
pass the greenish mountain delicacy, through the valley of the
river, and the most amazing you will pass Cikurutug high bridge
overlooking the expanse of green fields that seemed to calm.
In 2002 there were accident thatthe train tracks out of it,
fortunately there’s no victim on that accident.
8. Outeniqua Choo-Tjoe Train, South Africa

Although this train route connecting Salta (north-central Argentina)
to La Polvorilla (on the border of Chile) had been approved
for construction since 1921, but eventually completed in 1948,
long years to be completed. You should try to feel the track:
through 21 tunnels, 13 bridges crossing over the road, and many
past spiral and zigzag lines.
5. Lynton & Lynmouth Cliff, United Kingdom
