Mother nature is the best creature. There are so many places in this world that look like they have descended straight from a fairy tale. Here, we have created the ultimate list of top 15 places you would not believe exist on the Earth:
1. Kuang Si Falls, Luang Prabang
Situated in Luang Prabang, Laos, Kuang Si Falls is a three-tier splash of water so clear and blue that it looks like an elixir. It is already a top tourist destination, but you can make your experience unique by hiking on the trails and discovering its beauty yourself.
2. Grand Prismatic Spring, USA
The Grand Prismatic Spring situated in Wyoming in the USA is famous for its Rainbow Coloured Water. It is the third largest hot spring in the world and is precisely in Yellow stone natural park. Its beauty is so maddening that one has to tear their eyes away from it forcefully.
3. The Door to Hell
This flaming pool of lava situated in Turkmenistan gets its name from its bowl-shaped appearance, generating an illusion of a doorway. Because it is filled with lava, it looks like a gateway to the underworld. The Door to Hell has some serious potential of being the actual door to hell and surely must be among places you would not believe exist on the Earth.
4. Marble Caves, Patagonia
In Patagonia, at the center of Lake Buenos Aires, you will find perhaps the most surreal site known to man- Marble Caves. They are only accessible by boats. This site is closed off to most of the world. The marble caves have domed ceilings and a serene atmosphere that produces the kind of calm and peace in one’s heart that only nature can.
5. Lake Hiller, Australia
Lake Hiller of Australia is a saline lake spread over 37 acres separated by the Southern Ocean by a thin shore. This beautiful lake has Pink water instead of Blue! Scientists think it is because of some microalgae that make the salt appear pink, but whatever the reason, it doesn’t change the fact that Lake Hiller is one of the most beautiful places you would not believe exist on the Earth.
6. Vinicunca Rainbow mountains
In the Ausangate ranges of the Andes in Peru stand mountains the color of Rainbows. These Mountains require at least six days of hiking to reach, but honestly, it is worth it to have a closer look at the colorful mountains that look like they belong to an entirely different world.
7. Antelope Canyon, Arizona
The wave of Antelope Canyon is a sandstone rock formation located in Arizona. Its beautiful wave-like forms are a thrill for hikers, and needless to say, the photographers love it. It gives the feeling of standing inside a rock tsunami, and although it might not make sense, it is just how it is!
8. Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia
The world’s largest salt flat, situated in Bolivia, transforms into a giant mirror reflecting the sky during rainy seasons. A shimmering illusion of a horizon is created by this frozen flat, which gives the mirage of standing on the clouds as it reflects the skies.
9. Northern Lake Baikal, Russia
This lake is in Southern Siberia and is the world’s largest freshwater lake. The water freezes into blue-green ice sheets, giving it the appearance of precious stones being buried there. This place is so wonderful that if one were to forget to breathe while looking at it, it would still be considered an understatement.
10. Chocolate Hills, Bohol, Philippines
The Chocolate Hills of the Philippines are 1,268 cone-shaped mounds jutting up like giant chocolate heaps. The hills look like chocolate when the grass turns brown in the summer season, but the rest of the year, the sight of these mountains is still a unique and surreal one.
11. The Dark Hedges, Northern Ireland
The Dark Hedges of Northern Ireland are actually trees that line the road on the coast of Antrim. They are so dense that when one drives through the road, it communicates a feeling of eeriness and surrealism all at once.
12. Fly Geyser, Nevada
Scientists accidentally created this Geothermal geyser while they were exploring sources of geothermal energy. It is situated in Nevada, USA, and is covered with thermophilic algae, which gives it an otherworldly look smeared with shades of green and red.
13. Wisteria Flower Tunnel, Japan
Situated in Kitakyushu, Japan, the Wisteria flower tunnel is a part of Fuji Garden. This bewitching tunnel is covered in beautiful lavender, pink, white and red flowers that allow you to walk through it and feel like you have stepped into the hidden land of the Faes.
14. Black Forest, Germany
The black forest located in Germany is dense, evergreen, and enchantingly beautiful. The forest is called so because of its density and undergrowth, such that only a little of the sun penetrates its cover, giving it an aura of mystical and gloomy twilight.
15. Gulf of Alaska
The Gulf of Alaska is a place where two oceans meet but do not mix. A grey-green water body meets a deep blue one, but they retain their original color even though they should mix. Because of their densities, temperature, and salinity, it feels like a magic trick performed by nature.
