10 Unique Places Around the World

The Earth is a miraculous place and with the advent of technology, places that were remote and hidden have been finding their way into the eyes of the world. Traveling isn’t always a possibility for everyone; the internet gives a picture view into the places we can’t physically visit, and opens up the wonders of our planet. This list looks at some of the most unique areas around the world. The list includes natural areas and those created by humans. They are listed in the order I found and researched them, and are by no means diminished by their order on the list.

10

Pamukkale
Turkey

2772409446 84A58Ffed5 O

Pamukkale means cotton castle, and has also been called the white castle because of the vast whiteness caused by the high concentration of calcite in the water. Travertine sedimentary deposits have created the white terraces, petrified waterfalls and mineral forests that make up the landscape. The 17 hot springs are heated by an underground volcano. The beautiful area of Pamukkale, Turkey, has been used as a healing spa for thousands of years. The healing properties of the area drew people from all over, and the Romans built the ancient city of Hieropolis there. To help preserve the area, hotels and access roads were taken down and man-made pools were created to help in keeping the natural beauty of Pamukkale.

Nine Hells of Beppu
Japan

1267815667482

Beppu is home to over 2,800 hot springs and is found on the island of Kyushu. The Nine hells of Beppu are some of the more unique springs in the area. Hell 1 is Umi Jigoku meaning “sea hell”. The pool is a turquoise blue and is hot enough to boil eggs. Hell 2 is Oniishibou, meaning “shaven head hell” and gets its name from the boiling gray mud. The mud bubbles to the surface and resembles the shaved head of Buddhist monks. Hell 3 is Shiraike Jigoku meaning “white pond hell” and is filled with boiling white water caused by the high calcium concentrations. Hell 4 is Yama Jigoku meaning “mountain hell. Yama Jigoku was made by a mud volcano that spewed so much that it created a small mountain surrounded by small pools. Hell 5 is Kamada Jigoku “cooking pot hell”. This is a collection of boiling hot springs that are flanked by a red devil statue featured as the cook. Hell 6 is Oniyama Jigoku, meaning “devil’s mountain hell”. Oniyama is a very strong stream that can pull 1 ½ train cars, and is also home to about 100 hellish crocodiles. Hell 7 is Kinryu Jigoku “golden dragon hell”. This spring is featured with a steaming dragon. The steam is supplied by the steam of the spring and is directed out of the dragon’s nostrils. The dragon gives the illusion of flying when water spouts out at sunrise. Hell 8 is Chinoike Jigoku, meaning “blood pond hell”. Chinoike gets its name from the bright reddish colored water caused by ferrous (containing iron) minerals in the pond. Hell 9 is Tatsumaki Jigoku, meaning “spout hell”. Tatsumaki is a geyser that spouts every 30 minutes and has a temperature of about 105 degrees Celsius.

Sanqingshan
China

Sanqingshan-Www.Dalje

Sanqingshan has been considered a sacred place. Used by Taoists for meditation, and believed to lead to immortality it’s easy to see why. Sanqingshan is shrouded in mists for 200 days of the year. The mist gives an otherworldly quality to the mountain, along with thousands of streams that pour into pools, granite formations that resemble silhouettes of humans and animals, and strangely shaped pine trees. The pools and vegetation create unique environments that lure many exotic and rare birds and animals to make their home there. Sanqingshan is home to about 2,500 plant species. This is one of the only places to find the plants that are used in making traditional Chinese medicines.

The Plain of Jars
Lao

Laos Plain Of Jars 3

The Plain of Jars is one of the oldest archeological mysteries in Southeast Asia. Located on the plateau of Xieng Khouang, in the mountains of Indochina, there are about 90 different jars sites. Each site contains from 1 to 400 jars. It has been estimated that they were created 3,000 years ago, and are made of sandstone, limestone, granite, breccias and conglomerate, with the majority being made of sandstone. The tallest jar is about 9 ft. tall and all are made from their own individual slab of stone. At first glance they appear to be haphazardly placed, with some standing upright and others on their sides, pointing in different directions. Further studies have revealed that the jars are placed in positions that form the constellation patterns of the stars. There has been lots of speculation about the purpose of the jars – drinking glasses for a giant race, being used to collect rainwater, or as burial urns. Most of the jars are empty, but a few have been found with bodies or tools inside, or filled with miniature Buddha statues. Exploration is hard as the area is littered with unexploded bombs from the Secret War.

Spotted Lake of Osoyoos
British Columbia Canada

Spotted Lake (Kliluk), Situated In Osoyoos, Canada, Contains One Of The Highest Concentrations Of Mi

Spotted Lake of Osoyoos was sacred to the First Nations of Okanagan Valley Indians. Osoyoos means narrowing waters in the Okanagan language, and is used to describe what happens to the lake. The lake is a saline endorheic lake, which means it is a closed body of water with no outflow or inflow from other bodies of water. The lake has high concentrates of many different minerals, and contains some of the highest quantities of magnesium sulfate, calcium and sodium sulfates in the world. There are also eight other lesser minerals in the water, including small amounts of silver and titanium. The minerals in the lake are very beneficial, and were mined during WWI to use in the making of ammunition for the war. The minerals are what give the lake its uniqueness. During the summer, as the water evaporates, spots are formed which have different colors depending on which mineral is most present. The spots crystallize and form walkways of different colors. The colors can be white, yellow, blue or green. The lake is on private property and they allow very little public access.

Chamarel Falls and the Colored Earth
Mauritius

-Chamarel Falls And Colore-20000000001577289-500X375

The Republic of Mauritius is an island nation located off the southeast coast of Africa. It is part of an archipelago formed from a now dormant undersea volcano. Mauritius is home to two natural wonders. The first is Chamarel Falls, which are three thin waterfalls that fall about 300 ft. down a plateau. They are the tallest waterfalls in Mauritius. Mauritius was once known only for its waterfalls, then in the 1960s, the colored dunes were discovered. The colored sand was created from clay made of lava cooling off at different times. The effect caused the 7 different colors of sand to form; they include red, brown, violet, green, blue, purple and yellow. The most unique aspect of the sands is the fact that if you take all the colors and mix them together, they will naturally separate and rejoin the correct color grouping that they belong to. How this happens is a mystery to scientists who have tried to solve the strange properties of the sand. Another mystery of the sand is that there is no visible erosion. The area has a heavy rainy season so erosion should be a definite effect of nature.

Rio Tinto
Spain

Rio Tinto

The Rio Tinto runs from the Sierra Moreno Mountains down to the Gulf of Cádiz in Huelva, Spain. Rio Tinto translates into red river and this is exactly how the river appears. High levels of iron in the water cause the red coloring of the river. The river has been mined for copper, gold and silver from ancient times, and continues as of today. The Rio Tinto has the oldest mines in the world, which are believed to be the fabled King Solomon’s mines. Due to all the mining, the river has a high acidic content and is home to organisms that survive in extreme conditions. This has led to scientific study of the river, used in the study of the underground lakes of Mars and Jupiter. The link to outer space seems appropriate, as the Rio Tinto area has an alien lunar like landscape. The mining has created walls of terraced rock that has formed a natural amphitheater.

Fly Geyser Reno
Nevada

Geyserday1

Fly Geyser was accidentally created in 1916 while drilling a well for water, though they didn’t start forming until 1960. The spot picked had an unknown geothermal area. The heated water eventually found a weak spot in the well and pushed itself to the surface. The minerals started building up to create a mini volcano of about 5 ft. tall, with layers of terraces. The terraces have different colors from the minerals in the water and the geothermal water has found more weak spots to create two more geysers nearby. The water spouts continuously and fills holes and hollows in the terraces, to give the area a surreal look. Water where there isn’t much water to begin with has attracted swans, ducks, and other animals to the area. Fish also swim through the ponds, introduced by an unknown human dropping the eggs in the water.


2

Vale Da Lua
Brazil

Foto-Ion-David Vale-Da-Lua 008

Vale Da Lua is a stone basin that has been carved out by the San Miguel River. The name translates to valley of the moon and was given that name because the erosion of the rocks by the river has left them smooth, and in shades of gray similar to the look of the moon. The valley has some of the oldest rock formations in the world, with an estimated age of 1.8 billion years old. The river has created caves, grottoes, waterfalls and bizarre rock formations, to form a labyrinth in the narrow canyon walls. Seen from space, the area is the most luminous on earth. Quartz and the smoothness of the rocks cause the glow. The surrounding forest is abundant with wildlife and lays claim to many varieties of orchids. The river has made the area a work in progress, as it continues to erode and change the landscape.

Caño Cristales
Colombia

Cano-Cristales1

Caño Cristales is a river located in the Serrania de la Macarena Mountains. The area where the river is found is so remote that you can only get there by horse, donkey, or on foot. Caño Cristales is filled with waterfalls, rapids, wells and hollows, with water so clear you can see all the way to the bottom. During most of the year the river seems like any other, with the water coursing over green algae rocks. Then during the period of time between the wet season and the dry season – which happens between September–November – the river transforms, becoming a river of color. The algae in the water produce a riot of color; red, blue, green, black and yellow line the river. This river has no fish because of the complexity of the channels. Caño Cristales has been called “The River of Five Colors”, “The Liquid Rainbow” and “The River That Ran Away From Paradise” and it’s honestly easy to see why.



  • BlueFox94

    It’s been awhile since i’ve been first!! Love the list :D

  • vermilionskin

    First?? I hope :D

    • BlueFox94

      :( so close

      • vermilionskin

        Haha! I know! maybe next time ;)

        I hope you enjoyed the list, very refreshing and beautiful.

  • Danny Medina

    This is an cool list… I enjoyed reading about each placed.

    • GrammerNazi

      Place*

    • Grammer Nazi

      *place.

      • Tim

        Grammer Nazi needs a life.

      • Eumesmopo

        It’s Grammar! You illiterate dumbshit :P

        • Tim

          He spells his name GrammerNazi. Think before you insult someone.

          • Marianne

            Better yet, ignore peoples’ typos and get on with your lives : )

        • hehe

          That’s up for English English and American English debate :P

          • Jésus the Magician

            No grammar is the same in English and American. No such word as “grammer” which sounds like a measuring device for grams???

        • GrammerNazi

          Thank you for helping me correct this illiterate dumb*****.

        • sebede

          It’s called irony

          • lucille ball

            ^this

  • Most of these places are already on my bucket list but now I must Caño Cristales because it seems so beautiful and the fact that it is so remote makes it seem even more so.

    For people who like this list, Plitvice national-park in Croatia is a must-see! :)

    • Grammer Nazi

      “Most of these places are already on my bucket list but now I must Cano Cristales” but now I must Cano Cristales….?

      That is incorrect. You need to add “see” or “say you will add cano cristales to your bucket list”.

      • tim

        Grammer Nazi needs an enema.

        • Jimbo

          Grammer Nazi can’t even correct people correctly. That’s epic fail at it’s best.

        • GrammerNazi

          Its GrammerNazi. Not Grammer Nazi.

          Remove the space between “Grammer” and “Nazi”.

          • Tim

            There is above.

          • Jimbo

            Ha ha! What a silly little troll.

          • Bob

            Actually it’s GrammAr Nazi. Not GrammEr Nazi.

          • Jésus

            Bob doesnt understand irony

    • Alejojo

      Hi man, I’m from Colombia, I can help you to visit Caño Cristales so I can see it too.

      • GrammerNazi

        It’s a trap.

        • eduardo

          lol

    • Pablo

      Sep03 Yeah, I don’t know why but it really pretuacs my imagination, too! I’m just liking H&M more all the time. It seems every time I like something on a friend, they smile & say H&M. My cheapest investments this summer a really comfortable pair of short shorts in beige chino and a white bikini have been my uniform.When are you coming to London Toni? We miss you!! ; ) x

  • Seymour Butts

    I was hoping for an item to be near me. I need to go visit Fly Geyser, then head to Reno for the gambling.

    • Jésus the magician

      Good luck, Fly geyser is on private property and apparently the guy is an a**hole

  • Mike Giggler

    “The area where the river is found is so remote that you can only get there by horse, donkey, or on foot.”

    So it’s less remote than my local Tesco’s, then.

  • Jhoyce07

    this is a very informative list.. and nice pics too! never knew the earth has places such as these.. God is good.. :)

    • Grammer Nazi

      This is not correct. “never knew the earth has places such as these..”
      This is correct. “I did not know that places such as these exist on earth.”

      • Tim

        Grammer Nazi needs a pill.

      • Sarah_29292

        GrammerNazi, the only issue was perhaps the confusion of tenses with “knew”, and “has”, the sentence “never knew the earth had places such as these” is perfectly acceptable. :)

      • Murat

        depeen03 on April 11, 2010 man this receiver is slick… i have the 722 and i’m so tired of that old GUI.. this is the best dish receiver ever. if its only 200 bucks to upgrade. i’m gonna get this soon. a slingbox alone is 160, so not bad for 200 bucks.

  • Simplifried

    Great list, thanks. I’ve only been to one of the places on the list and knew nothing of the others so it was a pleasure to read about them.

  • Jono

    Awesome. :D

    It’s nice to learn about some places I had not heard of.

  • Bit obvious to say, maybe, but I’d love to visit any one of these places. Gorgeous.

  • Loved the list, #10 Pamukkale is amazing.

  • ArjayM

    Wow! How fascinating and beautiful the world is. =)

    • Eddie Tonn

      Luvly.. would really luv to visit #1…. “the river that ran away from paradise”. Nice nd informative.

      • Grammer Nazi

        Did you mean to say “lovely” instead of “luvly”? I understand that when you want to say something it doesnt always come out right. Next time you will know that “lovely” should not come out as “luvly”.

        Also “nd” is not a word. If you simply add an “A” it becomes “And”.

        I hope this short lesson helps you communicate with other humans in a way we can all understand you.

        • Chineapplepunk

          I thought the word ‘and’ shouldn’t start with a capital letter.

          • Jimbo

            Ha ha ha! Grammer Nazi epic fails again.

          • Tim

            I think that languages should evolve and words should be spelt the way they sound. This would make the notoriously hard to learn English language easier to understand and learn. My apologies to The Holy Church of Grammerism.

          • GrammerNazi

            I cannot express how much I deeply appreciate you helping me correct peoples grammar, as well as my own grammar mistakes. You and I are alot alike. If any part of the sentence is spelled incorrectly please correct it.

        • Bill McNeal

          The word “doesn’t” should have an apostrophe you div.

          • Bergan

            Also, “alot” is not a word. Instead, it is two words: “a” and “lot.” You should add in a space, then it is proper.

          • GrammerNazi

            Thank you so much for the correction. I am happy to see people in the world just like me. We are alike you and I.

  • Trinity enigma

    Good list but I have to say I got a bit irritated reading more unique and most unique- it’s either unique or it’s not but it can’t be more unique than another unique thing.

    Other than that, really interesting read.

    • Grammer Nazi

      Thank you for this helpful lesson.

      If you make a grammer mistake people will find it.

      • Tim

        And people will not care.

      • Clo

        And if you make a grammar mistake, I will find it. (Note grammar, not grammer.)

  • Will Trame

    Speaking of Turkey, there are a few other areas of note….Cennet y Cehennem (Heaven and Hell), two deep chasms in Mersin and the Castle in the Sea (aka the Maiden’s Castle). I viewed them whilst stationed there in 1986. Quite formidable.

    Good list; an excellent example of nature’s artwork.

  • wishflip

    wow was the word i said when i opened the list.. wow indeed.. great list.. sends good vibes.. thanks! i hope i can visit any of these places before i die…

    • Grammer Nazi

      “i” should be capitalized.

      • Tim

        Grammer Nazi should get capitalized punishment.

  • chela

    these places are magnificent. :D

      Contributions to a Roth IRA are limited to 100% of enared income (wages, net self-employment, etc.) or $5,000 ($6,000 if you’re age 50 or older), whichever is less.A SEP-IRA is an employER funded plan. So if you’re a salaried employee, your company would make the contribution, if any.You can also fund a SEP if you’re self-employed. Contributions for 2008 max out roughly at about 20% of net self-employment income (after a 1/2 of self-employment tax adjustment) or about 49k, whichever is less. Hope that helps. Disclaimer.

    AwSome list, i So wanna see them all in person.

  • Julius

    I was lucky enough to visit the Chamarel Falls and the coloured dunes, when I was in Mauritius a couple of years back and they are incredible. The dunes are a bit eerie, because nobody is allowed to walk on them (thankfully) and so they maintain their smooth nature and the waterfall is simply stunning.

    A unique place I would really love to visit is Socrota, off of the coast of the Yemen (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socotra), it just looks so alien.

  • keyshock

    BEAUTIFUL. Hopefully I’ll be able to visit these place before I die. :) It’s truly an amazing world we live in!

  • Nice list!!!!!!!!!!

    Would love to go to Sanqingshan(#8). The place sounds divine.

  • Nikica

    Nice list!

    Check this, too: Devil’s town http://www.djavoljavaros.com/index.php?cmbJezik=2

  • Ni99a

    The fact that most of them are unique because they are hot springs with weird colour makes them not unique.

    • Julius

      Only 3/10 are hot springs -.-‘

  • poppypower

    Interesting list, I went to Pamukkale when I was a kid, had the best day splashing around in the pools – it does get REALLY busy in the summer months though.

    I think that the fly geyser would be the one I’d most like to visit – that photo is awesome!

    Thanks Amy :)

  • natarlie

    Amazing! Loved the list and I hope to see a follow up list. Even though I can’t visit these places right now, just reading about them makes life just that more bearable! :)

    I live a couple hours away by car from Reno, but have never been to Fly Geyser. Though I’ve had it on my to-do list for some time. It’s actually another two hour drive north of Reno though, near the site of the annual Burning Man Festival on the Black Rock Desert playa, and it is also on private property, so for now the only way to see it is from the highway passing nearby. Also, there’s a bit of a discrepancy in the entry – the Fly Geyser well wasn’t drilled in 1916, it was drilled in 1964. There is another similar formation nearby that was caused by the earlier drilling, but that one has gone dry, possibly due to the pressure release being diverted to the newer site.

  • Andy

    Wow, really cool list, only ones I had heard of were numbers three and seven… The one about the different colored sands and how they seperate was really wild… Hope to visit all of these.

  • matt

    Wow! So many amazing looking places. I only wish i had the money and the time to be able to visit at least some of them….

  • carlos

    i thought the pink color in number 1 was from flowers

  • Evan

    Wow, I’m in such awe. Such beautiful places! Fantastic list, one of my favorites in a long time!

  • dmcal

    Why are all the pictures of the same location (whichever one it might be).

    • Lifeschool

      I don’t understand this. Do you mean because they all come from the same picture server or because they are all photos of Planet Earth?? Whichever way, I’m sure you’ll eventually get over it.

      • Lifeschool

        Oh, right – it was a wordpress error – my bad.

  • Setharian

    I thought maybe it was only me. Seems that somehow WordPress is duplicating the same image for all 10 entries in this post. I’ve seen it happening on other sites, too (on CuteOverload, for example). Glitch.

    • Setharian

      And fixed. As you were.

  • rafsanakib

    great list. i only knew one of these facts which was the mancreated penis-like rock in reno. make more of these lists plz

  • Danilo

    Surprised to see that Vale da Lua is No. 2 on the list. I’ve been there about 6 months ago. Pretty awesome place. The access is difficult, though.

  • SandraB

    Great list! I was born and raised in Reno and have never heard of Fly Geyser. I guess I learned something new. Maybe I will go check it out one day, along with all the other magnificent places on this list!

    If you are the Grammer Nazi how on earth did you manage to misspell your name?

  • Bob Tickle

    I didn’t see a store in any of these shots what the hell is wrong with people they aren’t interested in making a buck anymore? I mean seriously you’d think somebody might want a snack or a tasty beverage while seeing the sites. At least the Grand Canyon had a KFC there.

  • Amazing list!! Some of those would be sweet to see in person.
