The Victoria Falls in Zambia are also known as Mosi-oa-Tunya or the “smoke that thunders,” as it is translated, are possibly the largest waterfalls in the world. The falls plunge into a gorge and when the flow is high, the mist from the falls rises high and then eventually falls to the ground creating non-stop rain and the appearance of fog. The mist often creates incredible rainbows that span the gorge and the views from the lookout points are spectacular.

The misty hills of the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall of China are often covered with a late frosting of fog, which thickens as the last rays of sun disappear and the soft light fades and darkness appears. The final hours of sunset are a sight to see and from this vantage point you can see the wall like a spine meandering through the hills.
Smile at whatever happens.

Stonehenge has a history surrounded by mystery. It’s a place that has attracted visitors from all over the world who come to connect with the stones and marvel at the significance of them during the summer and winter solstice celebrations. The fog creates further intrigue and an incredible atmosphere obscuring the modern day roads and buildings and leaving the stones standing in all their glory, you can almost feel the ambience and mystical qualities of the past come to life.

The Taj Mahal sits majestic in the early morning mist. Between December and February you can expect to see fog and mist which may at times obscure the view because it can be so thick like a blanket but as you can see from the picture above a gentle fog creates a soft light effect surrounding this magnificent building as the morning sun rises. If you’re visiting Delhi during these winter months try to visit early in the morning to see the Taj Mahal in all its glory.
Smile at whatever happens.

15. Pyramids of Giza (Photo Credit: fossilmike)

The low-lying clouds over the Cairo landscape with the pyramids at Giza piercing through the fog, like ancient skyscrapers.  The fog causes visibility issues if you are hoping to visit, as you won’t be able to see the tops of the pyramids from the ground. Fog is more likely when the temperatures change from hot to cold and can cause visibility and transport issues. However, the view of the pyramids from above the clouds is stunning and surreal.


16. Loch Ness (Photo Credit: Gwen MacKenzie)

Loch Ness, surrounded in mystery and intrigue, looks even more enchanting with a blanket of fog skimming the surface of the water. Home to legends of a monster it’s easy to imagine how the stories began as the ambience and atmosphere are so raw and eerie which create a perfect setting for trickery of the eyes and mind.
Smile at whatever happens.

17. Mount Kilimanjaro (Photo Credit: KiliForKids)

Majestic Mount Kilimanjaro rises high above the fog, which surrounds it. The snowy peek glows in the sunlight and the low cloud makes it look like it’s a mountain in the sky. The time of year you’re most likely to experience fog is from August to October, which is around the peak climbing season. The clouds will blanket the forest and moorland areas so make sure you’re well prepared for various weather conditions including rain, snow and bitter cold nights where temperatures can drop well below zero.


18. Bokeo Rainforest (Photo Credit: Alyssa)

The misty foggy rainforest in Bokeo is a nature reserve and part of a conservation project where you can go and stay in the world’s highest tree houses and wake up in the morning surrounded by Black-cheeked Gibbons, which are protected creatures in this area. There are also other animals, which migrate through this rainforest including elephants, wild water buffalo, bears and even tigers.
Smile at whatever happens.

The Serengeti National Park is located in Tanzania and the image above looks surreal with the fog subduing the light and creating beautiful silhouettes of the Acacia Trees while the sun tries desperately to break through the clouds. The Serengeti National Park is a world heritage site and famous for the annual migration of zebra, gazelle and wildebeest as well as elephants, giraffes, eland, topi, kongoni, impala as they search for new areas to graze. You can also see the predators like lions, leopards, cheetahs, jackals, hyenas and many other animals such as lizards, insects and over 500 species of birds that make the Serengeti their home.

Fog envelopes Table Mountain in Cape Town like a magical tablecloth as it billows over the surface. This regular phenomenon occurs due to the proximity of the mountain to the sea and under ideal conditions supported by this microclimate a surreal and mystical scene is created which makes the surrounding landscape stunningly beautiful and mesmerizing.

Many people are put off visiting places in foggy weather and no doubt you may need to be very careful and take precautions if you are going to venture out, following local advice, guidelines and all safety regulations. Some places can be very dangerous in low visibility but for some, fog is an added bonus, which adds to the beauty or atmosphere and is a truly unique phenomenon in certain beauty spots.
Smile at whatever happens.
