I think it's a silly list. So many much more impressive natural wonders left out.

Sipadan Island, MALAYSIA

The only oceanic island in Malaysia which rises 600 meters from the seabed, Sipadan Island is a world wonder in its own right. It is formed by living corals engulfing an extinct volcano cone which took centuries to develop. Located at the centre of the Indo-Pacific basin, Sipadan Island has one of the world’s richest marine biodiversity in its ecosystem.

Wonder who chose The Kaziranga National Park from India. My country has at least a dozen much more impressive natural wonders... Anyway here is a snapshot of the park.

NEW ZEALAND in World Wonders final

New Zealand's Milford Sound has been nominated to compete for a spot on a list of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Over 260 natural landmarks were nominated from people around the world. Experts chose the final 26 from the 77 landmarks with the most votes. The list will be reduced to a final seven in 2011. Other finalists included the Grand Canyon in the United States, Australia's Great Barrier Reef, the Amazon Rain Forest and Africa's Mount Kilimanjaro. Organiser Bernard Weber said over one billion people were expected to vote on the final seven. "This campaign should contribute to the appreciation - to the knowledge - of our environment and not just the one in our country but worldwide. "If we or our children want to save anything, we should first appreciate it." The competition is similar to that for the seven Man-Made Wonders of the world chosen in 2007. The winners then were the Colosseum, Italy; the Great Wall of China; the Taj Mahal, India; Petra, Jordan; the Christ the Redeemer Statue, Brazil; Machu Picchu, Peru; and the Pyramid at Chichen Itza, Mexico.

Certainly not surprised to see Milford Sound represented there. It is an amazing breathtaking place.

I am surprised that theres no Norwegian representation. The fjords of New Zealand are right up there with the Norwegian ones.

A list like this is great. Makes us realise there are more amazing natural wonders out there than the 'famous ones'- Grand Canyon, Table Mountain, Cliffs of Moher.
