"The world is an enormous book; if you do not travel, you read only one page."
Mother Earth is a massive planet which has so many beautiful corners that conceal surprising secrets and mysteries. This weird world also comes with all kinds of astounding explanations about the numerous challenging sites present all around the globe; few of those places are destinations that do not call out to many tourists.
These incredible tourist destinations have mysteries and secrets around them, though the explanations behind them date back to the time when ancestors used to consider them as myths. Now with emerging times, the following places have grabbed the undivided attention of scientists from all around the world, and still, nobody knows the science behind why random things take place.
So without further delay, let's begin with the list of whackiest tourist places across the globe.
This place is little odd in a way. The vehicles, without any power roll uphill due to the magnetic force, applied to it. Since the 1930s, researchers have been trying to figure out the mystery of the supernatural miracle, but the results are still awaited. Something similar is seen in the Magnetic Hill of Ladakh, India.
These are the large spherical boulders scattered on Koekohe Beach on the east coast of New Zealand's South Island. These huge spherical stones were formed millions of years ago on the ancient sea floor. What is their origin and what is the cause of cracks in them - are still being studied by the scientists.
Again a highly anticipated mystery, which has not been revealed for so many years.
Svalbard is a Norwegian archipelago that lies north of Greenland in Arctic Sea. The unbelievable phenomenon about the place is, from April 20 to August 23; the sun never sets here. It is the toughest task for astronomers to let on the cause behind this unusual phenomenon.
People have been researching about this fascinating place since 1915, but their scientific knowledge failed. An ordinary stone sails over the surface of Racetrack Playa in Death Valley National Park. The unknown force behind this is not known yet, despite the scientific research.
Apparently, rolling stones really never gather moss, not in a place this dry.
There is a flickering golden flame hiding behind a waterfall in New York. After thorough research, the scientists have come up with the cause of it that the fire is real and fueled by the macro-seep of natural gas from the earth below. The water occasionally extinguishes the flame and the fuel automatically reignites it.
The southwestern corner of Lake Maracaibo in Venezuela has the world's highest frequency of lightning activity. The National Weather Service still has no reason behind the excessive strikes in this place.
It is hard to believe the existence of such incredible place on the earth. But this blood-red waterfall is staining the Taylor Glacier in Antarctica for a very long time. Most of the glaciologists and microbiologists studied to determine the cause of the mysterious red flow.
The researchers came to the confused conclusions; some concluded that the source of the lake is rich in the iron that gives it a red color. The other research revealed that the iron and sulphur reactions beneath the ice results in this red-fall. The world is still waiting to find out the firm cause behind this phenomenon.
The "Eye of Africa" lies within the large east-African country of Mauritania. Researchers have no clue about how this incredible structure arose out of the ground.
Every year, when the snow melts, hundreds of scattered skulls can be clearly seen here. It was first found by a British forest guard in 1942. People have thoughts that these skeletons are of the Japanese soldiers who died during World War II. Though there is no evidence to prove this, emerging skeletons do make for the creepy urban legend.
Shiprock is a monadnock rising above the high-desert plain on the Navajo Nation in San Juan Country, New Mexico, USA. The scientists have already studied this weird behavior of earth, but they have no reason for the cause.
Before 1963, there was nothing at this place of Surtsey, but an underwater volcano in the Westman Islands erupted. When the activity settled down in 1967, it left this island at this bare spot.
Pamukkale means "cotton castle" in Turkish. The geologists have a belief that Pamukkale's terraces are made of travertine, a sedimentary rock deposited by water from the hot springs. But they are not sure about the correctness of their conclusion.
Old Faithful is the highest concentration geyser located in the Yellowstone National Park. Its eruptions can shoot 3,700 to 8,400 US gallons of boiling water to a height of 106 to 185 feet lasting from 1 to 5 minutes. This Mysterious geyser attracts millions of tourists from across the world. This impossible activity of nature kept the great geologists of the world fascinated.
I am totally mesmerised with these incredible form of nature and all these places are on my bucket list.
