Unbelievable Places That Actually Exist

Unbelievable Places That Actually Exist


From a real-life cave of wonders to an ocean
of blue flowers, here are unbelievable places that actually exist: Number 15. Marble Caves of Chile Chico –
The only way to reach these breathtaking caves is to take a ferry since there is no land
surrounding them. They are located in Patagonia and feature
some of the most whimsical rock structures in the world. The formation protrudes from the water, and
its smooth, layered structure exhibits varying blue hues that swirl together. The cavern’s sleek walls are contrasted by
jagged rocks that jut down from the ceiling. All of the detail of the Marble Caves reflects
in the glassy blue water that fills the floor. If that isn’t impressive enough, the water’s
colors change with the seasons. Number 14. Lake Hillier –
This unusual body of water is off the coast of Western Australia. It isn’t the easiest place to visit but can
be reached by flying or taking a cruise. What makes Lake Hillier stand out is it’s
bright pink shade. It is greatly contrasted by the surrounding
green forest, so there’s no way to miss it when one is overhead. Its unique rosy color comes from the microscopic
organisms that inhabit it, including Dunaliella salina and other halophiles, or salt-loving,
bacterias. The lack of other life in this lake is due
to its salt content. However, as long as people don’t drink the
briny liquid, they can go for a swim without worry. Number 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 thousand
square miles. During the rainy season when surrounding lakes
flow over its smooth surface, the flat turns into an enormous mirror; it reflects everything
above it, which gives the appearance of an infinite sky. When someone walks through Salar de Uyuni
during this time of year, it looks as if they’re stepping on clouds. Number 12. The Black Forest –
This immense wooded area is in southwest Germany. It is one of the most visited tourist destinations
and for a good reason. But, what makes this forest so unique? The Black Forest is home to several remarkable
towns, stunning lakes, and Germany’s renowned Triberg Waterfalls. Perhaps the most alluring aspect of this mysterious
place is its dark, eerie atmosphere. The tall trees let in minimal amounts of light,
which illuminate the forest’s moss-covered floor. The creepy feeling visitors get while trekking
through these woods is no surprise at all. In fact, the Black Forest was where numerous
Grimm Brothers’ fairy tales took place. Number 11. Bergpark Wilhelmshöhe –
This is a magnificent park in Germany. It is built into the side of a hill and took
one-hundred-fifty years to complete. It is the biggest mountain park in Europe. Its most notable characteristics are the various
falls and channels of descending water, which begin at the top of the hill where a Hercules
statue sits upon an architecturally striking octogonal structure. From there, the cascades make their way down
to the Grand Fountain, which faces the Wilhelmshöhe Palace. Number 10. Mendenhall Ice Caves –
This astounding place is in Juneau, Alaska. One must journey over frigid water and glacial
cliffs to reach the Mendenhall Ice Caves, but their magnificence makes the trek well
worth it. Smooth, weathered stones line the floor, while
a canopy of ice creates the cavern’s remarkable ceiling, which is patterned like rippling
water and sparkles like waves in the moonlight. Everything within the caves is drenched in
bright blue light, courtesy of the glacier’s iconic color. However, the Mendenhall Glacier and Ice Caves
are retreating quickly and won’t be available to visit much longer. Number 9. Fingal’s Cave –
This grand cavern is in Scotland. It is part of Staffa, a desolate island. It got its name from a piece of work by James
Macpherson, a poet who lived in the 1700s. Fingal’s Cave is made of volcanic rock, which
formed in an uncommon geometric pattern. It is approximately seventy feet tall and
two hundred seventy feet deep. The Celtic people also refer to the cavern
as “The Cave of Melody” due to its acoustic properties. People can only visit Fingal’s Cave by boat. If the water is tranquil, ships may dock on
the island so tourists can enter and explore part of the grotto on foot. The inner walls of Fingal’s 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. Number 8. Son Doong Cave –
This gargantuan cavern is located in Vietnam and is the largest in the world. It was found in 1991 but wasn’t explored until
2009. This is because the locals were afraid to
traverse the surging water at the cave’s entrance and the arduous plunge further down. However, the British Cave Research Association
passed through Son Doong Cave after a couple of setbacks, and as of 2013, the public has
been welcome to enter it. Of course, professional tour guides are needed
and can be a bit costly. The cave is a total of over five miles from
start to finish, well over six hundred feet high, and almost five hundred feet wide. Parts of its ceiling have crumbled over time,
allowing sunlight to flow into certain areas, which has caused some vegetation to grow. The contrast of the trees and the stalagmites,
which reach upwards of two hundred feet, make Son Doong Cave a fascinating place to behold. Number 7. Tunnel of Love –
This astonishing place is in Ukraine. It is a railway that is approximately four
miles long, three of which are wrapped in a forest. The trees have grown tall, and their clasped
branches form a canopy of green leaves. During the winter, snow falls over the woods,
creating a whimsical white pathway. The Tunnel of Love is a renowned tourist destination. However, the train still runs, transporting
plywood to Klevan. The train’s operators have to watch out for
people on the tracks since it has become such a popular spot for photographs. It is said that the trees were initially planted
around the railway to hide the transportation of military equipment. However, opposed to its original, more serious,
purpose, this path through the trees has become a place where couples can go on romantic strolls
and enjoy the gentle sunlight that cascades through its dense leaves. Number 6. Eternal Flame Falls –
This waterfall is in Chestnut Ridge Park in New York. Although Eternal Flame Falls isn’t massive,
it has an interesting element, fire. Near the bottom of the waterfall, there is
a tiny cavern that natural gas flows out of. When lit, the gas produces a flame that can
be seen yearlong. Although, sometimes the fire goes out and
has to be ignited again. Eternal Flame Falls wasn’t originally a popular
tourist destination, but as it gained more recognition from the media, people started
visiting it more often. It has also been studied by several geologists,
who discovered that it emits more propane and ethane than other natural gas-secreting
places. Number 5. Zhangye Danxia Landform –
This stunning landscape is found in Linze County, China. These rocks are like Ogres; they have layers. They’re much more stunning than Shrek’s relatives,
however. They appear velvety, but form pointed, jagged
peaks. The striped, multicolored stone is due to
the different types of minerals that were deposited throughout the landform’s sandstone
base millions of years ago. The bright hues give Zhangye Danxia Landform
the appearance of a rainbow. This whimsical place could be right out of
a Dr. Seuss story and has often been named one of China’s most brilliant landforms. Number 4. Naica Mine –
This world wonder is in Chihuahua, Mexico. It has gained a lot of recognition due to
its colossal selenite crystals. In fact, within the mine, there is a cavern
called The Cave of Crystals. It is about one thousand feet under the surface
and encompasses some of the most substantial crystals ever discovered, the largest of which
is nearly forty feet long, thirteen feet across, and weighs over fifty tons. These sparkling cylinders were formed by magma-heated,
mineral-rich water that came into contact with chilled water. The cool water oxidized the sulfides, turning
them into sulfates. Over the course of about five hundred thousand
years, they crystallized, creating the breathtaking formations seen in the cave today. Number 3. The Blue Forest –
This striking forest is in Belgium. It is also known as “Hallerbos” in Dutch since
it is located mostly in Halle. This wooded area exhibits tall, spaced apart
trees, making it easy to traverse. Its floor is blanketed with vegetation, which
doesn’t get it much attention on a regular basis. However, during the springtime, bright bluebells
begin to bloom, covering the entire forest in a magnificent shade of blue. During this season, the Blue Forest is a popular
tourist destination. It is simple to reach, and people can take
public or private transportation to get there. Number 2. Fly Geyser –
This one-of-a-kind formation can be found in northwestern Nevada. The geyser is only about five feet tall and
twelve feet wide. It was formed in 1964, partly by nature and
partly by man. An energy company drilled a well into the
Hualapai Geothermal Flats, stuck the two-hundred-degree-water, and left it alone because they couldn’t use
it. Although they reportedly tried to seal the
hole, the water broke through and surged into the air. Over time, mineral deposits built up and formed
the geyser we see today. There are other waterspouts in the area, but
Fly Geyser is the most unusual looking one. It is blanketed in thermophilic algae, which
lives in hot and humid environments. This organism is what causes the otherworldly
red and green colors that cover the formation. Since the Fly Geyser continues spewing water
into the air, the mineral deposits cause it to grow ceaselessly. Number 1. Blood Falls –
This bizarre wonder is in Victoria Land in East Antarctica. Its name, as well as its sinister appearance,
is enough to send chills up anybody’s spine. The waterfall seeps out of Taylor Glacier. Blood Falls gets its name from the water’s
bright red hue. The saltwater is filled with iron oxide, which
causes its disturbing shade, and its stark contrast against the pure white glacier makes
it appear even more striking. Due to its eye-catching look, scientists have
studied Blood Falls on several occasions to determine its origin. They found that an extraordinary bacterial
ecosystem exists beneath the glacier that produces ferric and sulfate ions. In fact, Blood Falls encompasses over fifteen
varieties of microorganisms. This watery marvel was the first of its kind
to be discovered.

  1. Was I the only one who thought of dark Link with the salt mirror lake you can walk on 🤣 A lot of these reminded me of Zelda, actually 🤔

  2. why was there creepy dark music playing in the background the whole time? these are beautiful places not creepy ones…except the black forest one that was kinda creepy but also really pretty.

  3. I really hate the voiceover…. your downward pitch drawal at the end of almost every sentence, gets very old very quickly. It's amateurish, at best. Sorry but… seriously. Stop it.

  4. 97% people- You should change the narrator and blah blah
    2% people – the earth is really beautiful stop destroying it
    1% people- Random stuff
    No one – the video was good

  5. slip in the all seeing eye and some outer space images 1st as a psyop to perpetuate the "outer space" myth. Nice try, but that is NOT a place that "actually exists"

  6. Salar De Uyuni is over 4 thousand sqare miles of FLAT dry land. Earth is 70% FLAT water. No one has EVER seen any curvature of the horizon that is always eye level from any altitude. Earth is shaped like a ball? WAKE UP.

  7. the narrator seems to try to sound dramatic but it just sound silly like when reading to children, why not just talk normally?

  8. Wow lol I live next to "the blue forest". I go running there every week :). Sadly the amount of flowers is declining every year

  9. You talk about the Son Doong Cave and show pictures from other caves.
    There is only one company witch offer to visit the Son Doong Cave for only 500 persons in a year and it cost you 3000$. The cave you shown which you can enter with the boat is the Phong Nah Cave and the other one with the beautiful stalactites witch you can enter and explore with on a well build wooden path is the Paradise Cave.

  10. Voice-over guy sounds like he's used to doing annoying cartoon character voice acting 😀 Can't watch/listen lol
