Spotted Lake , Canada:-Spotted
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.
The Gaint causeway , Northern Ireland:-Sixty
million years ago a huge volcanic eruption spewed out a mass of molten
basalt, which then solidified and contracted as it cooled, creating the
cracks that can be seen today. A World Heritage Site, there are an
estimated 37,000 polygon columns so geometrically perfect that local
legend has it they were created by a giant.
Thor's well , Oregon , USA:-
Also known as Spouting Horn, in rough conditions the surf rushes into
the gaping sink hole 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, but for your own safety stay well back, especially
at high tide or during winter storms.
Pamukkale , Turkey:-A
remarkable UNESCO World Heritage Site in southwest Turkey, a visit to
Pamukkale (Cotton Palace) also 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.
Lake Hillier , Australia:-This
remarkable lake was discovered in 1802 on the largest of the islands in
Western Australia’s Recherche Archipelago. The lake keeps its deep pink
colour year-round, which some scientists say it’s down to high salinity
combined with the presence of a salt-loving algae species known as
Dunaliella salina and pink bacteria known as halobacteria.
Badab e surt , Iran
:-These beautiful travertine terraces in Northern Iran are an
incredible natural phenomenon that developed over thousands of years.
Travertine is a type of limestone formed from the calcium deposit in
flowing water, and in this case it's two hot springs with different
mineral properties. The unusual reddish colour of the terraces is down
to the high content of iron oxide in one of the springs.
The tianzi mountain , China:-
Found in the northwest of the Hunan Province in China, these staggering
limestone pinnacles are covered in lush greenery and often shrouded in
mist. A cable car goes as far as Huangshi village and from here there
are plenty of trails to take in the breathtaking views of Tianzi ('son
of heaven'); unsurprisingly the inspiration for the floating mountains
in the blockbuster movie Avatar.
Nazca lines , Peru :-The animal figures and geometric shapes etched by
the ancient Nazca into Peru’s barren Pampa de San José are one of South
America’s great mysteries. Visible only from the air or from a metal
viewing tower beside the highway, some of the unexplained shapes are up
to 200m in length and each one is executed in a single continuous line.
The hand in the desert , Chile:-
Chilean sculptor Mario Irarrázabal is responsible for this very weird
work of art rising out of the sand in the middle of Chile’s Atacama
desert, 46 miles south of the city of Antofagasta. Irarrázabal is known
for his works associated with human suffering and this huge unnerving
sculpture captures a feeling of loneliness, exacerbated by its desolate
and secluded location.
Chocolate Hills of Bohol Island , The Philippines:-
Bohol’s 1700-odd conical hills dot the middle of the island; they range
in height but are so regular in shape that they could be mistaken for
being man-made. However, according to UNESCO they are the uplift of
coral deposits and a result of rainwater erosion. The hills only earn
their 'chocolate' nickname in the dry season when the foliage goes from
lush green to brown.
Beach , California , USA :- his glittering sea glass is a remarkable
side effect of years of rubbish being dumped on the beach; it wasn’t
until the 1960s that this was stopped and by then the sea was full of
everything from electrical appliances to bottles and cans. Over time,
the waves broke everything down into colourful pebbles and the beach
became a major tourist attraction – now ironically under threat because
visitors are taking home the glass.
cat Island , Japan :- 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
as the island produced silk and mice are a natural predator of
silkworms. Local fishermen regarded them as good luck and the island
even has a cat shrine, along with newly built cat shaped cabins for
tourists to stay in. It goes without saying that there are no dogs
The Mütter Museum ,Pennsylvania , USA:-
The Mütter Museum is an institution dedicated to medical anomalies. It
houses organs, bones, fetuses and statues that’ll leave you with chills.
Its medical oddities, anatomical and pathological specimens, wax
models, and antique medical equipment are world-famous.
North Sentinel Island near India:- Sentenelese
are noted for resisting attempts at contact by outsiders. The
Sentinelese maintain an essentially hunter-gatherer society subsisting
through hunting, fishing, and collecting wild plants. There is no
evidence of either agricultural practices or methods of producing
fire.Their language remains unclassified and is not mutually
intelligible with the Jarawa language of their nearest neighbors.
