Uncover 8 Unbelievable Places You Have to See to Believe
No matter how far science advances, there are many places on Earth where we do not have a clear understanding of how they were formed. Extraordinary images, unexplained mysterious formations and much more allow us to witness the secrets of the universe. Let's take a look at a few of the unexplained and unique supernatural beauties!
1. The sea that split in two after the Kerala Flood.
Residents of Ponnani in Kerala's Malappuram District were in for a pleasant surprise after the recent floods receded. A new island-like structure has emerged along the coast. The narrow strip of sand, more than half a kilometer long, literally cut the sea in half. Although the exact reason for the formation of the extraordinary structure is unclear, many believe that sand swept from Bharathappuzha and deposited in Ponnani could have caused the island-like appearance. The strip of sand attracts many tourists to Ponnani Beach, who wade into the sea and walk along the entire strip. It is worth paying attention though: there is a warning that in case of high tide the sand strip can be washed away.
2. Underwater waterfall.
Next up is a fascinating destination that will surprise travel enthusiasts: The tropical island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean. If you have never come across the island before, it was originally known as the home of the extinct Dodo bird. Today, it makes a name for itself with its mesmerizing underwater waterfall. Actually, the structure is not a waterfall as we know it. It is an illusion that appears due to the sand drawn by ocean currents from the Mauritian coast. You can see the island, swim and even surf safely all year round.
3. The boiling river.
Deep in the Amazon, a 6.5 km long river starts with a cold current and can reach temperatures of up to 91 degrees Celsius. There are different theories about the cause of the strange temperature difference. According to explorer and geophysicist Andres Ruzo, the river is fed by a volcano. But the nearest volcano is 750 kilometers away. The other theory is that it could be hot water seeping through fault lines. Thus, the river becomes a geothermal system unique in the world. Two different communities of Shamans live in the area and they believe that the river has mystical power. Only strong Shamans can make it to the river.
The average annual temperature in the huge region, which covers a fifth of Russia's territory, is -55°C. One of the worst things that can happen to you in this region, which has one of the most extreme climates in the world, is that your car breaks down on the road. Until help arrives, you run the risk of dying from the cold! Despite the bitter cold, some parents put their children in freezing water to boost their immune systems. What do you think, would you go to Yakutia to feel the pretentious cold?
5. The well that turns to stone.
Anything you drop into the water flowing down the Petrifying well in North Yorkshire turns into stone within 3-5 months. According to one of the ancient beliefs, the cliff was cursed by a witch. Today, of course, scientists have a different explanation: the water here contains high amounts of minerals, so the drops that form in the caves harden everything like stone over time. Nowadays, many tourists come and leave their belongings here as a souvenir. Which item would you leave downwards?
6. Nabimya's circles.
Naked circles of regular size and spacing, surrounded by Stipagrostis grasses that occur over thousands of square kilometers in Namibia, attract attention. The circles can range from 3 to 80 meters in diameter. Their origin, shape, persistence and regularity are still under debate. One hypothesis for the formation of the vegetation rings is based on clonal growth in the center and centrifugal expansion of a single grass plant through reversion. No crops grow inside the circles, which remind one of the movie Signs.
7. Devil's Kettle Waterfall
The Devil's Kettle waterfall in Minnesota is another phenomenon that science can't explain. Along the Brule River, the water splits into two different paths. While one of the branches continues to flow into the river, no one has any idea where the other branch goes. Scientists poured paint into the pitcher and tried to find the path through the colored areas, but the result was unsuccessful. They then wrote small notes on ping-pong balls and left them, which disappeared without a trace. Seeing this mystical place will definitely be one of the most interesting experiences for you!
8. Sea of Stars
Vaadhoo Island is one of the favorite islands of the Maldives. The most interesting part for tourists is the bead-shaped blue colored waves seen in the sea when it gets dark. With each wave movement, fire-colored algae reacts with the oxygen under the water and the neon-colored visual feast is revealed. As the sea seems to be made of stars, visitors feel like they are in a fairy tale. We are sure that the mesmerizing star sea will take its visitors to a different land!
