TOURIST ATTRACTIONS THAT NO LONGER EXIST BECAUSE WE'VE DESTROYED THEMDate: 2019-01-17
Mother nature has several masterpieces that leave us in awe but, because of humankind, many of them have been destroyed – Here is a list of 10 of the most amazing tourist attractions that we've carelessly destroyed.
One of these tourist attractions was called 'The Tree of Ténéré', this was the only tree for 250 miles in Niger, Sahara Desert, the sole reminder of a greener Sahara, serving as a landmark for Nomads for centuries. The miracle of this tree surviving in that inhospitable environment became a tragedy not because of nature, but because of bottles of liquor. In 1973 an intoxicated Libyan driver ploughed into the loneliest tree on earth, snapping its trunk in half. I mean what are the chances that a car would drive into a tree in the middle of nowhere? Now a metal structure has been erected where the tree once stood and the remainder of the tree is now on display at the Niger national museum.
