10 Weird Places Around The World That Does Exist

Please share




1. 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.

Although the US Coastguard disputes any such area exists, conspiracy theories thrive on stories about unusual magnetic readings and ships, planes and people who have disappeared here without a trace.

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. It can be viewed by taking the Captain Cook Trail from the Cape Perpetua Scenic Area visitor centre.

3. Pamukkale, Turkey

Avisit to Pamukkale (Cotton Palace) takes in the ancient ruins of Hierapolis, the once great city that was built around it. Water cascades from natural springs and down the white travertine terraces and forms stunning thermal pools perfect for a quick dip.

4. Lake Hillier, Western Australia

The lake keeps its deep pink colour 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.

5. Spotted Lake, British Columbia, Canada

The Lake has long been revered by the native Okanagan (Syilx) people and it’s easy to see why they think of it as sacred. 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 can be viewed on Highway 3, northwest of the small town of Osoyoos, although visitors are asked not to trespass on tribal land. If you’re looking to explore more waters, read our selection of 20 breathtaking lakes around the world.

6. Red Beach, Panjin, China

Very cool and very weird, this beach is covered in a type of seaweed called Sueda, which turns bright red in autumn. Thirty kilometres southwest of Panjin in China, these tidal wetlands are an important nature reserve for migrating birds.

Only a small section of the beach is open to the public, but it can be explored via a wooden walkway that stretches out to sea. Red Beach may just be one of China’s best secret beaches.

7. Goblin Valley State Park, Utah, USA

No, this is not Mars but an uninhabited valley 216 miles southeast of Salt Lake City in Utah in the USA. Soft sandstone has, for many years, been eroded by wind and water to form strange pinnacles or hoodoos that some think resemble goblins.

The eerie landscape is only about a mile across and two miles long and it’s well worth exploring the marked trails to get up close to the bizarre formations.

8. 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. Most are anonymous skulls and bones taken from the city’s overcrowded graveyards during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. It wasn’t until the authorities realised its potential as a tourist attraction that the bones were arranged in the macabre displays seen today.

9. Fly Geyser, Nevada, USA

It was created accidentally in 1964 after an energy company drilled down into geothermal waters, today a scalding fountain erupts up to five feet high and the resulting mineral build up means the cone is growing by several inches each year.

10. Cat Island, Japan

One of the weirdest places on earth has to be the Japanese Cat Island. A short ferry ride from Japan’s east coast, Tashirojima has a population of one hundred humans who are vastly outnumbered by their furry friends.

Originally the cats were encouraged since the island produced silk, and mice are a natural predator of silkworms. Local fishermen regarded them as good luck. The island even has a cat shrine, along with newly built cat shaped cabins for tourists to stay in.
