With its pristine white sands and crystal clear waters, it’s pretty understandable why anyone would include Maldives on their bucket list. If you’re one of those people who has written Maldives as one of the places to visit in your life, you might want to book that trip sooner.

Majority of islands in Maldives sit only less than a meter to two meters above sea level. This is the very reason why soon enough, it could disappear from the Earth. Due to global warming, the sea level is gradually rising, which could affect not only the stunning Maldives but also the Arctic and other popular tourist destinations like Venice.

Maldives was affected during the December 2004 tsunami.

The Earth continues to suffer from the effects of climate change, with sea levels rising more noticeably than before as a result of the glaciers and icebergs melting. If this trend continues, Maldives is predicted to be completely submerged in thirty years’ time.
