From a real-life cave of wonders to an ocean of blue flowers, there are unbelievable – unreal places in this world that actually exist. We may think these places are just like others creating some illusions in the camera lens but trust me they are so unreal and you can feel it when you witness by yourself.
You can call it as “The Secret Truth”… and that being said let’s find out,
Top 15 unreal places in the world
15. Marble Caves Of Chile Chico
These stunningly beautiful set of marble Caves are located on Lake General Carrera, a remote glacial lake that spans the Chile-Argentina border. The only way to reach these breathtaking caves is to take a ferry since there is no land surrounding them.
This location is also called Patagonia and features some of the most whimsical rock structures in the world. The formation protrudes from the water and its layered structure exhibits varying blue hues that swirl together.
The cave’s sleek walls are contrasted by jagged rocks that jut down from the ceiling. All of the details of the marble caves reflect in the glassy blue waters that fill the floor of the cave. If that isn’t impressive enough! let me tell you the watercolor changes with seasons. Isn’t that something which not happens in our normal day scenery?
14. Lake Hillier
This unusual body of water is off the coast of Western Australia. This isn’t the easiest place to visit but can be reached by flying or taking a cruise. The reason that makes this place stand out from other regions is the “Bright Pink Shade“, and of course, it is one of the best unreal places in the world.
This place is greatly contrasted by the surrounding green forest so there’s no way someone misses it while flying over. Actually, it’s unique rosy color comes from the microscopic organisms that inhabit it including Dunaliella Salina and other halophiles, or salt-loving bacterias.
Info: There’s a lake of other life in this lake due to its salty contents. However, as long as people don’t drink its liquid they can go for a swim without any problem.
13. Salar De Uyuni
This breathtaking spectacle is in southwest Bolivia. Salar De Uyuni is the world’s most sizable salt flat. It formed over thousands of years throughout the evolution of many lakes in the Altiplano. This vast salt desert covers over four thousands square miles.
During the rainy season when the surrounding lakes flow over its smooth surface the flat turns into an enormous mirror. It literally reflects everything above it which gives the appearance of an infinite sky, makes it one of the most popular unreal places in the world.
When someone walks over these flats during the rainy season it looks as if they are stepping on clouds. If you have a childhood dream of walking on the clouds Salar de Uyuni is the perfect place to experience it, but remember in the only rainy season.
12. The Black Forest
This immense wooded area is in south-west Germany. This is one of the world’s most visited tourist destination and that is for a good reason. Of course, there is something that makes this forest unique. The black forest is home to several remarkable towns, stunning lakes, and Germany’s renowned Triberg Waterfall.
Perhaps the most alluring aspect of this mysterious place is its dark atmosphere. The tall trees let in a minimal amount of lights, which illuminate the forest’s moss-covered floor.
The creepy feeling the visitors get while trekking through these moss-covered woods is no surprise at all. In fact, this black forest was where numerous Grim brothers’ fairy tale took place.
11. Bergpark Wilhelmshohe
This is another magnificent park in Germany. This park is built into the side of a hill and the building process took one hundred and fifty (150) years to complete. This is the biggest mountain park in Europe.
The parks’ most notable characteristics are the various falls and channels of descending waters which actually begins at a top of a hill where a Hercules statue sits upon an architecturally striking octagonal structure.
From this structure, the cascades make there down to the grand fountain, which farces the Wilhelmshohe Palace, why not! it’s another unreal place in the world.
Where is the world’s largest underwater cave?
The world’s largest underwater cave has been found near the city of Tulum, on Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. It connects two previously known caves which create the 215 miles long largest cave in the world.
10. Mendenhall Ice Caves
This astounding place is in Juneau, Alaska. To reach this destination one must journey over fridge water and glacial cliffs, however, their magnificence makes the trek well worth it.
Smooth, weathered stones lined the floor, while a canopy of ice creates the cavern’s remarkable ceiling, which is pattern like rippling water and sparkles like waves in the moonlight.
Everything within the cave is drenched in bright blue light, courtesy of the glacier’s iconic color. However, the Mendenhall glaciers and ice caves retreat quickly and won’t be available to visit much longer. The dissimilarity of these caves with the others let us mention it in the list of unreal places in the world.
9. Fingal’s cave
This grand cavern is in Scotland. It is a part of Staffa, a desolate island. This cave got its name from a piece of work by James McPherson, a poet who lived in the 1700s.
Fringal’s cave is consist of volcanic rocks which formed in an uncommon geometric pattern. It is approximately 70 feet and surprisingly, 270 feet deep.
The Celtic people also refer to this cavern as “The Cave of Melody” due to its acoustic properties. People can only visit Fringal’s cave by boat. If the water is tranquil ships may dock on the island and tourists can enter and explore part of the cave on foot.
The inner walls of this cave are made of the same basalt as the outside which is stacked in rectangular columns and almost looks man-made. There have been musical pieces inspired by this wonder as well as novels and poems, which let us list it as one of the unreal places in the world.
8. Son Doong Cave
This gargantuan Cave is located in Vietnam and is the largest cavern in the world. It was discovered in 1991 but wasn’t explored up till 2009. This is because the locals were afraid of traversing the surging water at the cave entrance and the arduous plunge further down.
Later, the British cave research association passed through this grand cave after a couple of setbacks, and from 2013 public are allowed to enter Son Doong Cave.
Professional tour guides are needed to go through this grand cavern and can be costly as well. The amazing fact is that from start to finish the cave is a total of 5 miles long, six hundred feet high and almost five hundred feet wide.
Part of a ceiling has crumbled over time allowing sunlight to pass through in some certain areas which also caused to grow plants in those regions.
7. The Tunnel Of Love
This astonishing place is in Ukraine. Actually, it is a railway which is approximately four miles long, three of which are wrapped in the forest. The threes have grown tall and their clasped branches form a canopy of green leaves.
During the winter, snowfalls over the woods, creating a whimsical white pathway. Of course, the tunnel of love is a great destination for tourists. However, trains still run and transport plywood to Klevan. The operators of the train have to watch out for people since it has become a popular photographic spot.
Is it hard to get to tunnel of love ?
The tunnel of love actually located in an urban-type settlement makes it hard to get to the Tunnel as the infrastructure is not very good in that area.
It was said that the trees were initially planted around the railway to hide military equipment transportation through the train. However, nowadays, opposed to its original reason this path covered by the trees has become a place where couples can go for romantic strolls and enjoy the gentle sunlight. Something, we do not find in every corner of the globe.
6. Eternal Flame Falls
This wonder fall is in Chestnut Ridge Park in New York. Though the fall is not a massive one like the others, it has an interesting element, fire. You might be thinking about how water and fire can be lining up at the same place.
The fact is that near the bottom of the waterfall there is a tiny cavern from where natural gas flew out regularly. The gas that produces the flame can be seen for several years long. However, sometimes the fire goes out and it has to be re-ignite.
This is not one of the most popular destinations for travelers, but due to the behavior of its flame in an unrealistic environment full of water, Ethernal Flame Fall has to be listed among the most unreal places in the world. Unlike the visitors, this spot is a favorite for geologists in recent years.
5. Naica Mine
This wonder location is in Chihuahua, Mexico. It has gained lots of recognition because of the colossal selenite crystals. In fact, within the mine, there is a cavern called “the cave of crystals”. This cave contains the giant crystal and the biggest one found is 12 meters long by 4 meters in diameter and weighing 55 tons.
The cave is about 1000 feet under the surface and encompasses some of the most substantial crystals ever discovered. These sparkling cylindrical crystals are form by magma heated, mineral-rich water that comes into contact with chilled water. The cool water oxidise the sulfide and turn them into sulfates.
Over the course of five hundred thousand years, they crystallized and create the breathtaking cylindrical formation that seen today inside the cave, makes Naica Mine the 5th most unreal places in the world.
4. The floating forest
If you visit Homebush bay in Sidney you will find the surreal floating forest inside a ship called SS airfield. In Homebush, many chips in the 20th century were just left when they were no longer needed in service.
This ship is over one hundred years old and used to deliver supply to the American troops when it served as a colier. After leaving it to decay for many years plants started growing in the ship’s rusted hull. The fully-grown mangrove trees earned this 102-year-old ship which weigh around 1,140-tonne and now being called as the Floating Forest name among the locals.
many people are drawn to the bay only because of this Floating Forest alone. What a sight, should not be missed in the list of unreal places in the world.
3. Seas of stars
As night falls on certain beaches around the world the waves glow with an eerie blue light. Tiny neon dots that make it look as though stars are washing up on the shore. The phosphorescence only occurs when the microorganisms are agitated such as when the water crashes on the shore or someone steps on the wet sands.
These unreal arrises not from magic but from plankton that have evolved to glow in order to distract fish and other oceanic predators. These type of microorganisms are mostly found in the Maldives which is a typical nation of the Indian ocean.
The sea of stars is dependent on climate and the plankton growth thought the entire year. These unreal sceneries are mostly found between July to February of a year. The natural chemical reaction that helps in the occurrence of this amazing scenery is called “Bioluminescence“. The glowing water is one of the main reasons why millions of people around the world visit these unreal places in the world every single year.
2. Devil’s Kettle Fall
As far as natural mysteries go the Devils Kettle in Minnesota is one of the most intriguing once at a particular point along the Brule River. At that spot, the river water splits into two, one split continues onto the Lake Superior but the other split seems goes into nowhere.
We all know that the other split which endpoint is not visible has to end somewhere on the lake or other nearby regions, but no real destination has been found. Scientists are performing dye and ping pong balls test to identify where the water meets in the lake but surprisingly unable to discover the kettle’s water.
The kettle’s water vanished without any trace. In a normal view, we see it as the water passing through two kettles however the main reason for the attraction is the vanished water. That’s why this is one of the mysterious and unreal places in the world.
1. Blood Falls
This bizarre wonder is in Victoria land in East Antarctica. It is named as it’s sinister appearance is enough to send chills up anybody’s spine. This waterfall seeps out of the Taylor Glacier. This fall is named because of the bright red hue of the water.
The saltwater is filled with iron oxide which causes its disturbing shade. The dark red color against the pure white glacier makes it appear even more striking. Due to the eye-catching look scientist have studied the blood fall on several occasions to determine the origin.
What they found is an extraordinary bacterial ecosystem exists beneath the glacier which produces ferric and sulfate ions. Also, blood fall holds fifteen several verities of microorganisms which are also a part of the red hue visual. This is the only fall of this kind ever discovered on the earth until now.
These are the 15 unreal places in the world we have covered in this article though there are a lot more to be witnessed. In the upcoming posts, I will add more locations that attract the interest of many people by their mysterious nature.
