Unimaginable Places Created by Nature

Updated on February 27, 2019

1. Danakil Depression, Ethiopia

Danakil lies about 410 ft. below sea level in the northern part of the Afar Depression and is one of the hottest and most uninhabitable sites on Earth. temperatures average 94 °F (but have been recorded above 122 °F). The dusty browns and grays of the desert gave way to oranges, yellows, and greens so vivid they seemed unnatural. Volcanic activity heats spring water, bringing sulfur and iron to the surface, leaving behind yellow, green, and orange deposits.

But come programmed because with tremendous rising temperatures and appalling ‘roads’, visiting this region is more an excursion than a tour.

2. Yuanyang Rice Terraces, China

The Yunnan terraces are positioned at an altitude of about 200-2,000 m above the sea level. They occupy a territory of over 20,000 sq. km. but however, the rice is what makes this place special and brings exceptional world fame to the province. The only things visible above the rolling fog and cloud banks is an artist’s palette of colors at both sunrise and sunset, spirit-recharging treks through rice covered hills and some beautiful mist magic.

Despite its stunning beauty, Yunnan province doesn’t suffer from bulk tourism due to the absence of sustainable roads, nearby airports and etcetera.

BONUS

As shared by Chile and Argentina, the stunning Blue Marble Caves and the Marble Cathedral of General Carrera Lake is stuffed with minerals like calcium carbonate which gave the water an intense, milky blue color.

Do you know that General Carrera Lake is the largest lake in Chile and the fourth largest in Argentina? If you could anyhow cleave out the enormous marble hunk in one piece it would weigh whooping 5 billion tons.

3. Grand Prismatic Spring, US

At 370 ft. wide and 121 ft. deep, The Grand Prismatic Spring is the park’s largest and deepest hot spring. It is also the third largest hot spring in the world available to watch at the Yellowstone National Park, US. This park contains half of all the world’s known geothermal characteristics and more than 300 concentration of geysers. According to T. Scott Bryan’s The Geysers of Yellowstone, that’s enough to fill 300,000 automobile gas tanks every day.

The iconic Colorization of Yellowstone is an expansive spring with rainbow-like colors radiating from its center, dominated by a fiery orange hue at its edges. Their colors come from very real microscopic creatures. The spring discharges an estimated 560 US gallons of 160 °F.

5. Glowworm Caves, New Zealand

World-renowned and a magnet for both local and overseas visitors, these Glowworm caves hold a high placing in the country’s vacation wishlist. The supernatural beauty of these worms can a be found in other places throughout the country as well.

Because of over-population of Arachnocampa luminosa, a glowworm species which radiate their distinct luminescent light, as you enter the cave you'll immediately experience a delightful and fascinating view of tiny glowworms that light your way. Do you know that the name of the caves translates to "water passing through a hole" in Māori, and in that language, the glowworms are called "titiwai."

In Naica, Chihuahua, Mexico, dozens of giant crystals have been lying for over a century. Since some of the heaviest crystals weight over 55 tons, they possess a record for the largest selenite crystals in the world!

Inside the cave, temperatures can touch up to 136°F, with a bang 90-99% humidity. If you want to visit this site, you’ll have to wear a special cooling suit and limit your time to 45 min due to the presence of acidic atmosphere.

6. Pink Lake Hillier, Australia

Mother nature likes to mess with us and creates abnormalities just like Lake Hillier in Western Australia. This lake is truly stunning with its peculiar strawberry milkshake color. The vigorous pink color is permanent. The pink color is due to the presence of the Dunaliella salina.

Despite the significant tone, the lake manifests no adverse effects upon humans. As expected its salt content is very high. This lake is completely unimaginable.

7. Vatnajokull, Iceland

The Vatnajökull is the largest glacier by covering over 8100 km2 and has around 30 terminal glaciers. The glacier’s average thickness is about 1640 ft which crawl from the glacier’s core chiefly out onto the south shore.

Under the ice cap, due to several volcanic eruptions; the development of large pockets of water beneath the ice was formed. These ice caves are always melting and forming, so in a few years, it might be settled somewhere else!
