A good entry to your bucket list is the chance to learn history and explore the world's lost cities--indeed, an adventure of a lifetime with its breathtaking views and unforgettable activities. Here are five ancient lost cities to visit before you die.

Vilcabamba, Peru. One of the historical Inca sites that is truly a must visit is Vilcabamba. It is located in the south of Peru and along the Chontabamba River, and is held in high regard, as it was the leading society that fought the last of the Spanish invasion.

Copan, Honduras. Copan is perfect for travel explorers with its multiple activities. According to Honduras.com, you can have a tour in their internationally acclaimed museums and see authentic Mayan sculptures. In addition, one can appreciate the wide variety of birds including parrots, toucans, and macaws in famed Copan Valley bird watching.

Caracol, Belize. If you're tired of the mainstream attractions, Caracol is the destination for you with its glorious ceiba trees, stones wrapped in roots and howler monkeys moving freely. It's also the largest Mayan site in Belize with a 136-foot temple. And the best part is that it has only few tourists.

Persepolis, Iran. According to Telegraph, this is a highly recommended attraction when you visit Iran. It would be a good remembrance to have a picture in the capital of the First Persian Empire. Be amazed at the ancient ruins and sculptures that have remained after the being burnt during the time of Alexander the Great.

Shisr, Oman. If you have the read the Quran, you would be familiar with this place since is described as the "Atlantis of the Sands." This is said to be a trading spot with the vast variety of artifacts originating from Persia, Greece and Rome. Though a trip here requires permission from Salalah City, it is a rare opportunity to see the Frankincense City of Ubar.

These ancient lost cities not only hold great knowledge but history as well. They are equipped with remains that give a glimpse of the culture and arts of different civilizations.
