But there are places in Equador and Colombia ( and ofcourse Srilanka) which look comparable.

A continent? lol.. well in that case North America as a continent would be more diverse than Europe, as would Asia, as would South America..

Poor comparison.

If you include Hawaii and Alaska, for sure....virtually every climate on earth, a wide array of scenery, geology, etc. China may be second though.

India and China both have jungle, and more of it than the US, but again, they lack tundra.
China actually has pretty large expanses that are in the same sort of "family" of koppen climate classification as tundra due to the large size and extreme height of the Tibetan plateau.

India's almost got that. India is a much smaller country than either the US or China, but it measures up pretty well. If it were an India like the British Raj with Pakistan and Bangladesh included, India would be a front-runner with the other two.

The problem with India is his territorial disputes with China, Pakistán and Cachemira. Actually is difficult to establish the Indian borders and total area properly.

China beats USA when it comes to unique scenery, there isnt much like the Li River or [LEFT]Zhangjiajie national park in the USA[/LEFT]
