The world is full of unique places that keep us captivating and make us wonder about their mysteries. If you have always dreamed of visiting some off beat destinations, these places will undoubtedly fulfil your dreams. No matter what hides behind these natural phenomena, they indeed look magnificent and astonishing. So, let’s explore some of the unique natural phenomena today:
Bizarre Natural Phenomena:
1. Hidden Beach, Mexico
Playa del Amor, commonly known as the Hidden Beach, is the gaping hole in the surface of the lush green island opens onto a secret beach. The island was entirely uninhabited until in 2005 the Mexican govt declared it a national park where only swimming, kayaking, and sunbathing, are allowed. The Mexican Government also strictly prohibited hunting and fishing around the islands.
2. Sailing Stones, US
Also known as Death Valley National Park, it is famously known for being the hottest place on earth. It is, however, a strange place by any standard. In this island, rocks move across the flat desert landscape, apparently driven by no power other than their own.
And what is even more unusual, some of them weigh around 300 kg. Besides, some trails were nicely curved, while the others were straight, making the whole story even more strange.
3. Blood Falls, Antarctica
Found in East Antarctica’s McMurdo Dry Valleys, it seems that somebody poured a bucket of blood across the snow white Taylor glacier. However, it is not blood at all, but the iron oxide-tainted plume of saltwater, flowing from the tongue of Taylor Glacier onto the ice-covered surface of West Lake Bonney. Indeed, this natural phenomenon is a site for a lifetime.
4. Frozen methane bubbles, Canada
Another unique natural phenomenon is frozen methane bubbles that one can find in Canada. Stunning frozen bubbles under lake Abraham are nothing else but pockets of gas, which got trapped underwater and got frozen. Though the natural phenomenon is fascinating, the site is also dangerous as it is highly flammable.
5. Fairy Circles, Namibia
Found in the arid grasslands of the Namibia desert, Fairy circles are circular patches of land barren of plants in western parts of Southern Africa. These natural circles are between 2 to 15 m in diameter which spread over 2500 km of land.
6. Kawah Ijen Lake, Indonesia
Kawah Ijen is an Indonesian volcano that has the world’s largest acidic lake. The place is famous as it has a spectacular view of not only the lake but also the golden citrine coloured stones that cover an area of one kilometre around the lake.
7. Pink Lake Hillier, Australia
Another natural phenomenon that is so soothing to the eyes is Australia’s famous pink Lake Hillier. It is indeed a sight to behold. These bright pink lakes spread 600 meters long on the edge of Middle Island. Researchers believe that the pink colour is due to algae that collect high levels of beta-carotene, or maybe a high concentration of pink brine prawn.
