There’s all sorts of weird stuff on this planet, natural or man made. And that kind of stuff seem to always mesmerize and fascinate us; I don’t know why. It’s like in the horror movies, when characters hear strange noises and, instead of running away, they go towards the noise to investigate. That’s weird, but let’s just focus on 10 weird places around the world, in no particular order.
1. Mystery Spot | Weird Places on Earth
Mystery Sport is a tourist attraction near Santa Cruz, California, famous because the laws of physics and gravity are completey ignored here. The odd cabin makes those who enter inside swinging all the time. The illusion experienced by visitors is a result of misperceptions of height and object orientation.
2. The Bermuda Triangle | Weird Place
The question about the triangle that swallows ships, planes and so on still waits for some logical answer. Many ships and planes have disappeared and so many disasters have happened in the area between Bermuda, Puerto Rico and Miami; oddly, this is still one of the most traveled routes in the world.
3. Socotra | Weird Place on Earth
Socotra is archipelago the Horn of Africa and Arabic Peninsula, but the main island of Socotra is 95% of the whole landmass. This place is the most alien-looking on Earth, mostly due to the umbrella-shaped “blood tree,” the cucumber tree, giant succulent tree, different kinds of birds, spiders, bats and cats.
4. Mount Roraima | Weird Places on Earth
Mount Roraima is located on the triple border point between Brazil, Guyana and Venezuela. The wird shape is part of the appeal, as well as the clouds that are always near the peak and the endemic fauna. The tabletop of the mountain is considered as one of the world’s oldest geological formations.
5. Rio Tinto
Rio Tinto is located in south-western Spain and originates from Sierra Morena mountains of Andalusia. The area around the river has been mined since ancient times, which is why minerals can be found in the water, especially iron. Bacteria live here as well, but what’s weird about this river is its high acidity, which made some scientists say that it is very similar to the underground waters of Mars. As if..
6. Fly Geyser
The Fly Geyser can be found near Gerlach, Nevada, and it’s constantly growing. It is three meters high at the moment, and since the geyser is located on a private area, nobody can enjoy it. The owner is Bill Spoo, a man who rejects the opportunity to make a fortune and keeps the beautiful view just for himself.
7. McMurdo Dry Valleys
McMurdo Dry Valleys are located on Antarctica but, believe it or not, they lack snow. This makes the area the coldes desert in the world, but what’s trange is that the valleys are “bleeding” from the many geysers, because of the high concentration of iron.
8. Easter Island
The well known statues on the Easter Island, the moai, still remain a mystery to the researchers. The statues are over 50 feet tall, but no one has a clue who built them, why or how they were brought there. Some say a civilization has lived here long time ago, but the people ate everything on the island and moved or were exterminated. Who knows?
9. Lake Vostok
Lake Vostok is the most recent mystery coming from Antarctica, and the whole world probably. Scientists believe that at the bottom of the lake some species that have survived 15 billions years still exist. However, these species would be something that the world has never seen before, as they would have developed under complete darkness.
10. Racetrack Playa
Racetrack Playa in California is well known due to its sailing stones. The stones there somehow manage to move from their original position, leaving a track behind them. The reasons are still unknown, but supposedly the winds are “responsible” for this.
