Top 10 Strangest Places in the World

Here are some of the most puzzling yet enthralling places around the world.
The Top Ten
1 Blood Falls (Antarctica)

In scientific terms, this waterfall is salt water that's gotten mixed up with a bit too much iron oxide. But it appears as if the falls is pouring blood due to its red color, hence, the name.

Can you imagine seeing warm colors and blood in antarctica?

This looks like pure fiction but is reality.

This is gonna give me nightmares...

2 Lake Hillier (Australia)

This lake is notable for its pink color. It isn't a trick of the light, it's the algae living in it that gives this lake its glossy pink sheen. Despite the unusual hue, it is still safe to swim in.

I took a swim there once, tastes like strawberry ice cream!

So beautiful and colorful. This was like an amazing dream.

Looks like a lake full of pink frosting.

3 Sea of Stars (Vaadhoo Island, Maldives)

The sea of stars of Vaadhoo Island attracts annually millions of tourists, and it isn't surprising why. The beach got its name from the fact that the sand and the waves appear blue at night, giving an impression of the sky and its stars sitting on the beach. A certain kind of phytoplankton known as dinoflagellates are responsible for the glow.

It looks like the universe in an Earthly cell, yet flowing free nonetheless.

Just random shiny planktons like me.

That looks really cool.

4 Island of Dolls (Mexico)

Throughout the island, broken and different kinds of dolls are found hanging eerily from the trees. These were all hanged by Julián Santana Barrera, the former owner of the island, because she believed that the dolls help chase away the spirit of a girl who had drowned years ago.

Why don't they record a horror movie there?

I've been there and it was weird.

I hate creepy little dolls.

5 Skeleton Lake (India)

Officially known as Roopkund, this lake isn't much different from any other lake, except for the fact that hundreds of human remains from the 9th-century are visible at its bottom when the snow melts.

The bones are there because of a hailstorm. The hailstones were the sizes of tennisballs.

There are skulls here. Cool.

Must have been a war there.

6 Sentinels of the Arctic (Finland)

These magnificent ice sculptures are actually trees covered in ice and snow during winter in a -40-degree climate. It looks like a scenery straight from a sci-fi film, doesn't it?

7 Salar de Uyuni (Bolivia)

Some call this place the world's largest salt flat; others might refer to it as the world's largest mirror. This weird place is exceptionally rich in lithium, containing 50 to 70 percent of the world's lithium reserves.

8 Screaming Tunnel (Ontario, Canada)

Legend has it that this tunnel is haunted by a girl who burned to death. Those who enter this tunnel claim that her death throes could still be heard.

9 Magnetic Hill (India)

Optical illusions make the downward sloping roads appear to slope upwards in defiance of gravity when they are, in fact, rolling downhill.

10 Chocolate Hills (Philippines)

The Chocolate Hills are a geological formation in the Bohol province. They are a bunch of brown hills covered in green grass that turns brown in the dry seasons, giving them their name. 3 stories of how the hills came to be are:
-A giant carabao that kept eating the townspeople's crops, so the people got angry and fed all their spoiled food to the carabao. It left dung mounds that dried and became the hills
-A giant named Arogo who was powerful and youthful. He fell in love with a woman named Aloya, a simple mortal. Her death left him so heartbroken, he couldn't stop crying. When his tears dried, the chocolate hills were formed.
-Two fighting giants were hurling rocks, boulders, and sand at one another. This lasted for many days, and tired out the 2 giants. They forgot about the feud and befriended each other, but didn't clean up the mess they made, creating the hills.

Never been there, but I always thought this place was cool!

Looks like a fictional place.

The Contenders
11 Bhangarh Fort (India)

India's Bhangarh Fort is thought to be the most haunted place in all of India because of all the legends surrounding it. An example is that nobody is allowed to spend the night in this castle because of some alleged black magic by a wizard from the 17th-century.

12 Stonehenge (Wiltshire, England)
13 Bermuda Triangle (Atlantic Ocean)
14 Hill of Crosses (Lithuania)

I've been here and I must confess it was a really magical and strange experience. There are crosses, big and small everywhere and the entire experience walking around here was surreal.

15 Lake Natron (Tanzania)

In lake natron, you could literally turn to stone.

16 Badlands (South Dakota)
17 Mohenjo Daro (Pakistan)
18 Great Barrier Reef (Australia)
19 Gunnison Bay (Utah, United States)

When they built a causeway across the Great Salt Lake, it blocked off this part. A ton of algae started growing due to the higher salt content.

20 Snake Island (Brazil)
21 Loch Ness (Scotland)
22 Devil's Kettle Falls (United States)

At this waterfall in Grand Marais, MN, it almost looks like water is disappearing into a hole. Look it up, it is an astounding sight.
