There is nothing like staring at a sky full of stars. Here are some places that give a complete view of a star-filled sky.

Visitors can better understand the cosmos and re-establish relationships with the extraordinary world we share. Here are the world’s top stargazing locations.

NamibRand National Park

The NamibRand Nature Reserve is located in one of the darkest areas on Earth because the nearest populated towns are at least 60 miles away from it. The Namib Desert Environmental Education Trust Center protects a nearly 500,000-acre tract of land in southern Namibia via environmental educational activities.

Islands Of Tenerife And La Palma, Canary Islands

The Starlight Foundation has declared three UNESCO-recognized “Starlight Reserves” on the Canary Islands. Professional and amateur astronomers flock to La Palma and Tenerife because of the developing Astro-tourism business, although the night sky can be seen clearly from all archipelago’s islands.

Mauna Kea, Hawaii

Dormant volcano Mauna Kea, located on Hawaii’s Big Island, is the state’s highest point and one of the most incredible places to see the night sky. The Onizuka Center for International Astronomy Visitor Information Station is located halfway up Mauna Kea, reaching about 14,000 feet above sea level.

Sagarmatha, Nepal

In Nepal, UNESCO World Heritage Site Sagarmatha National Park is also home to the world’s tallest peak, Mount Everest, making it a popular destination for stargazers. If you don’t have the time or the will to scale this mighty behemoth, you may still have a remarkable experience in the region. Mountain peaks that are easier to access are included in the national park, as are lower-altitude forests where visitors can glimpse Mount Everest against a vast night sky and an abundance of twinkling stars.

Ireland’s National Dark-Sky Preserve, Dublin

The Iveragh Peninsula and the Wild Atlantic Way make up the Kerry International Dark Sky Reserve in Ireland’s southwest. There are nine inhabited towns in this territory between the Kerry Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean, yet the night sky here is breathtakingly black and beautiful.

Denali National Park, Alaska

Grizzly bears, caribou, and Denali, North America’s tallest mountain, are all found in this 6-million-acre Alaskan wilderness park. Visitors to Denali National Park are urged to look up at the night sky, where stars, planets, and even the Aurora Borealis may be seen throughout the year.

Deserts Of Chile

Chile’s broader in Atacama-Elqui area, with its little rainfall, high altitude, and lack of light pollution, is the “North Star” of astronomical tourism. First-ever International Dark Sky Sanctuary was established in the Elqui Valley.

Uluru, Australian

After the sun has set behind Uluru and Kata Tjuta, the Ayers Rock Resort’s Sounds of Silence excursion begins. Participant tables are set up outside for an Aussie-inspired meal after a short stroll across the dunes.
