Ever imagined a forest with bendy trees? I mean actual trees that are crooked? Well, deep in the heart of south Poland, a city called Szczecin opens to the forest of a handful of hundreds of pine trees. This location has long attracted travellers from all corners of the earth. The entire forest seems to be twisted around at the stem, nearly ninety degrees bent, before climbing vertically into the Slavic sky and twisting back straight again. The bending of these trees makes them look like fish hooks. Fascinating isn’t it?

2. The Bermuda Triangle

The Great Blue Hole is a natural wonder located off the coast of Belize, Central America. It is a large underwater sinkhole that stretches over 300 meters (984 feet) in diameter and reaches a depth of about 124 meters (407 feet). The hole is circular and is renowned for its deep blue color, which gives it its name.

Despite the simple name, the Great Blue Hole is tremendous in size and beauty. This enormous, isolated marine sinkhole is 400 feet deep and more than 1,000 feet broad off the coast of Belize. The most frequent tourists here are scuba divers who swarm the oceans to explore the coral reefs, marine life, and mesmerizingly pure seas.

Ever heard of that lady who turned into stone? Cleopatra? Similar to that event, Tanzania’s Lake Natron is sometimes referred to as Petrifying Lake due to its knack for transforming birds into “stone.” The water’s pH is 10.5—nearly as high as ammonia—and it can reach temperatures of over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Interestingly, flamingos are happy inhabitants of these dangerous yet scary places. Who knows? Maybe flamingos are “immune.”

5. The Pyramids of Egypt

Although it’s safe to assume that aliens didn’t come to Earth to teach humans how to build enormous triangle mounds out of stones, the precise techniques used in building the pyramids of Egypt are still somewhat of a mystery Despite the fact that many of the riddles surrounding the pyramids have been solved, there are still numerous competing hypotheses regarding their construction. Wait, were they mathematicians then?

6. Door to Hell, Turkmenistan

Turkmenistan’s Door to Hell would have to be brought up in any discussion on the world’s most mysterious locations. What if this is an actual gateway to hell? This blazing abyss, also called the Darvaza Gas Crater, began to burn fifty years ago and hasn’t stopped since. Isn’t that amazing? It’s like an eternal pool of fire!

7. Highgate Cemetery, England

There are many ghost stories associated with cemeteries, yet even the most seasoned paranormal investigator finds Highgate Cemetery to be unsettling. Actually, a few witnesses to ghost sightings claim to have witnessed odd apparitions and glowing lights darting between the old, moss-covered stones. Despite the constant reports of paranormal activity, many daring people are lured to Highgate Cemetery. Talk about a popular graveyard!

8. Easter Island, Chile

<yoastmark class=

Without a question, Easter Island in Chile is one of the world’s mysterious locations. It all started long ago when a group of Polynesians paddled over vast waters to seek out and settle in a new country after leaving their home island. After years of sailing, they found this land. After setting up camp on Easter Island, they started carving massive sculptures out of the volcanic rock.  Archaeologists continue to assume that the heads represent the spirits of notable men from each of the island’s clans. Amazing craftsmanship, if we may say so. I wonder why they left their houses.

9. Uluru, Australia

As one of the most popular national monuments in Australia, the Uluru is claimed to have arisen following a particularly fierce fight between two ferocious tribes, inspiring both admiration and respect. Indigenous myths state that Uluru emerged from the battleground as a symbol of Earth’s sorrow. The indigenous Anangu people still think that ancestor spirits independently shaped each area of Uluru. Astonishing!

10. Eternal Flame Falls, New York

There’s a tiny cave beneath the tumbling water at the Western New York waterfall that has caught the eye of many. Eternal Flame Falls is home to a flame that burns always. In actuality, the existence of natural gas in the cave is thought to be this puzzling phenomenon, as it keeps the fire going. Even though the fire burns continuously for the majority of the year, occasionally it goes out and is restarted by the next tourist. Well, that’s a relief!

11. Aokigahara Forest, Japan

This forest has been infamous for suicide for a number of years, which is why it is known as The Suicide Forest. Approximately, one hundred bodies are thought to be recovered from this forest each year, and many people are still puzzled as to why individuals select this verdant forest for their last resting place. But why would someone want to die in a forest? Spooky stuff!

12. Death Valley, USA

Imagine the “valley of death” in real life! Just kidding! Death Valley is actually a huge desert with a distinctive kind of stones called the sailing stones. Just as the title implies, these stones are moving over the bleak desert terrain on their own, driven by an unseen force. Mind you, these are huge pounds of stones! But then again, no one has actually seen them move but they did leave lots of marks and trails.

13. Mesa Verde, USA

The American Southwest, especially the Four Corners region, is full in historic cliff homes. The Ancestral Pueblo, who lived in the area hundreds of years ago, constructed the majority of these. However, they appear to have abandoned the locations for unclear reasons. Researchers continue to disagree on why these locations were abandoned.

14. Bhangarh Fort, India

Aside from being the second world’s most populous nation, India is home to many historic wonders, but there’s something eerily disquieting about this once-grand fort. The history of Bhangarh Fort begins in the second half of the sixteenth century. An aura of mystery is created by the strange stillness that permeates the area around the fort and the austere, moss-covered surroundings. It’s so still you could meditate all day here!

15. Lake Hillier, Australia

If pink is your favourite colour, then you might want to visit this pretty lake. Australia’s Lake Hillier boasts the most unusual and beautiful waters in the world, due to its bubble-gum pink waters. Given its proximity to the Pacific Ocean, its natural colour stands out strikingly. Sadly, the exact explanation of Lake Hillier’s colour is unknown, however, some scientists claim that chemical reactions, bacteria, or algae are most likely to blame. Too bad we can’t go for a “pink” swim.
