4 Places That Are Too Weird To Exist

Mother nature has an occult sense of humor! There is an even more enchanting, crazed-looking creature living in its wild habitat for each beautiful, majestic animal or flower in the world.

From jagged chasms perched on the surface of the moon to a cactus that eats flies, here are four unusual places that you’ll likely never see unless you happen to find yourself in these remote, isolated regions.

1. The Pink Lake in Australia

Lake Hillier is a pink lake located on Middle Island in the Recherche Archipelago, a subgrouping of islands within the Recherche Bay, a bay off Edgell Inlet. The cause of this strange color is not yet known – however, it is speculated that unique bacteria living in the water could be the reason behind the coloring. The coloration has been observed to change from pink to red over time, and even from blue to purple, so if you find yourself traveling through Australia, you should try to catch a glimpse of this strange wonder of nature!

2. The Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland

Most of the world’s natural wonders are located in tropical rain forests. Still, one of the most impressive natural wonders is located just a few miles from the southern coast of Northern Ireland: The Giant’s Causeway. This unusual formation of ancient lava flows and columns was created by a volcanic eruption more than 10,000 years ago. A trip to this mysterious formation will be more than enough to keep even the most adventurous travelers entertained and amazed!

3. Thor’s Well, Oregon, USA

Thor’s Well is a strange well-like structure off the coast of the Oregon coast. An underwater landslide caused this incredible hole in the ground after a period of heavy storms. Waves crashing into the rocks beneath a cliff create a violent whirlpool that can plunge as deep as 164 feet into a dark, terrifying tunnel. This hole is certainly something you won’t want to stumble across during a walk on the beach!

4. Pamukkale in Turkey

Pamukkale is a strange limestone mountain that sits near the city of Denizli in southern Turkey. The area surrounding Pamukkale is known as the White Palace due to the amount of white travertine marble found on its surface. Travertine is a type of calcium carbonate which forms in water by being dissolved by other minerals or chemicals present in the water. This kind of limestone crystallizes over time under ocean waves, forming different kinds of terraces over time!
