10 Most Bizarre Places in the World
We all want to travel and explore the world because it is so big and there are so many wonderful sights to see. However, you should also know that the world is not only a wonderful but also bizarre place. There are many places and sights that have made scientists and researchers scratch their heads in confusion because there is no explanation to their existence. Here are ten of the most bizarre places of the world that you may not have known about:
1. Spotted Lake, British Columbia, Canada
In the summer the water of the lake evaporates and small mineral pools are left behind, each one different in colour to the next. The unique lake is considered sacred by the native Okanagan (Syilx) people.
2. Thor’s Well, Oregon, USA
In rough conditions at Thor’s Well, also known as Spouting Horn, the surf rushes into the gaping sinkhole and then shoots upwards with great force.
3. Lake Hillier, Western Australia
The lake keeps its deep pink color year-round, which some scientists say is down to high salinity combined with the presence of a salt-loving algae species known as Dunaliella salina and pink bacteria known as halobacteria.
4. The Nazca Lines, Peru
The animal figures and geometric shapes etched by the ancient Nazca are one of South America’s great mysteries. Visible only from the air or from a metal viewing tower beside the highway, some of the unexplained shapes are up to 200m in length and each one is executed in a single continuous line.
5. The Bermuda Triangle, North Atlantic Ocean
Long shrouded in myth and mystery, the infamous 500,000 square miles also dubbed the Devil’s Triangle is roughly the area between Bermuda, Florida and Puerto Rico. Conspiracy theories thrive on stories about unusual magnetic readings and ships, planes and people who have disappeared here without a trace.
6. The Catacombs, Paris, France
The deeply creepy catacombs are a network of old quarry tunnels beneath Paris and the final resting place of around six million Parisians. The skulls and bones are anonymous that were arranged in to macabre displays after authorities realized it could become a tourist attraction.
7. Fly Geyser, Nevada, USA
Created accidentally in 1964, a scalding fountain erupts up to five feet high from this otherworldly geyser. The brilliant hues of red and green are down to thermophilic algae.
8. Socotra Island, Yemen
Socotra’s incredible and unique biodiversity means that there are plants and trees here not found anywhere else in the world – particularly bizarre are the ancient and twisted dragon’s blood tree and the bulbous bottle tree.
9. Red Beach, Panjin, China
This beach is covered in a type of seaweed called Sueda, which turns bright red in autumn. Thirty kilometers southwest of Panjin, these tidal wetlands are an important nature reserve for migrating birds.
10. Whale Bone Alley, Siberia
A stretch of the northern shore on remote Yttygran Island has become a macabre tourist destination. Massive whale jawbones, ribs and vertebrae stand horizontal in the ground forming an eerie alleyway. Whether it was a sacred spot for native tribes to meet or simply a gathering place for mass slaughter, no one knows.Disclaimer:We do not allow users to post content which is copyright and We take strict actions against the users who post infringement content on our website.Although we do not host any content, users post embed videos from youtube, facebook, Dailymotion and Vimeo and are moderated before posting but we still take strict action against the copyright videos posted.If you are an official representative of any company whose videos are posted illegally on our website or you think some video infringe the copyright then you can simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
