Save List

Blood Falls, Antarctica

As known to be the coldest and direst place on earth, Antarctica has the mysterious waterfall called Blood Falls. It pours down five stories along an icy white glacier. There's nothing to fear because researchers have found out that this red color is mainly due to the iron-rich water. The ice inside the glacier is oxidized and rusted once it's exposed to oxygen, which turns it into blood-like color.

 

Crooked Forest, Poland

This unique forest in Poland is just like its name. It has hundreds of peculiar pine trees. They all were planted back in the 1930s and amazingly grew with an almost 90-degree bend at their base. There are two stories about these trees. Some say a human tool was used to bend them all, while others say that a winter snowstorm or some other damage could have given this fascinating forest its interesting shape.

 

Transylvania, Romania

Right at the very heart of Romania, Transylvania is located. Within the Sylvan hills and mist-topped mountains, you can see the mighty Bran Castle. It gives a spooky outlook, bringing the chills and giving your spine a mild tingling. This huge building soars from the forests on the edge of Wallachia in a medley of Gothic towers. In the past, this place was associated with many uber-mysterious facts. You'll experience a different yet ghostly feeling when visiting the place.

 

Marble Caves at General Carrera Lake, Chile

Caves are not only dark and deep; sometimes, they are bright and shiny too. Marble Caves are one of the fascinating places on earth. They are beautiful yet mysterious and hidden. These swirling marble walls in the cave are formed by 6,000 years of crashing waves eroding the stone. They look as vibrant and lovely as the azure water that surrounds them.

 

The Great Blue Hole, Belize

If you go 60 miles off the Belize coast, you'll see the Lighthouse Reef boasting beautiful coral and shallow turquoise waters. The Great Blue Hole has a vertical drop that's more than 400 feet deep and 1,000-foot-wide. It is a perfectly circular sinkhole right in the middle of an island. Also, this place is known to be one of the best diving sites on the planet. Amazingly, this place was 15,000 years ago.

 

Mendenhall Ice Caves: Juneau, Alaska

The ice caves inside Juneau's Mendenhall Glacier are genuinely hidden, and not everyone can access them. To witness them in person, you have to kayak to the glacier first and then ice-climb to reach it. But once you get there, you'll have the best experience of your life. Adventurers stand under the glowing blue ceilings of ice and admire the beauty around them. It's absolutely worth the trek.

 

The Gates of Hell, Turkmenistan

The Gates of Hell is a deep gas hole that is located in the land far away in Turkmenistan. It's one of those strangely curious places that have been off the radar for a long time. They got discovered when pictures started floating over social media. The picture of the gas crater became viral, and tourists started visiting the place. However, it's still a secret location that many people don't know about and haven't visited yet.

 

Lake of Blood, Borax Island

The first thing that comes to our minds knowing about the Lake of Blood is like it must be something deadly. Well, it is one of the most amazing places to travel if you love adventure. But, there's nothing to worry about. In reality, it's a shallow saltwater lake located in Bolivia. The original name of the lake is Laguna Colorada. It is surrounded by an island called Borax. The reddish color of the lake is due to the red pigmentations produced by the red algae growing around the lake. It's a sight to see.

 

Spotted Lake Khiluk, British Columbia

Spotted Lake Khiluk is also one of the curious places to visit in the world. It is another secret of nature that has been hidden for a long time. Amazingly, the lake is spotted with 365 separate pools arranged in a strange mosaic-like pattern. Each of these spots is filled with a unique and highly concentrated chemical. It is also heard that these chemicals cure different diseases.
