33 Unbelievable Places To Visit Before You Die. I Can't Believe These Actually Exist On Earth...

mvirus:

Salar De Uyuni, Bolivia

image
During the rainy season, the world’s largest salt flat becomes the world’s largest mirror. The Salar was born when several prehistoric lakes joined into one. The salt flat is so reflective, it’s used to calibrate satellites.

Tianzi Mountains, China

image

image
These uniquely tall and thin mountains are so alien that they were used in James Cameron’s “Avatar.” Formed underwater 380 million years ago, the flow destroyed surrounding sandstone, leaving only resilient stone pillars. Some of the columns have reached over 4,000 feet above sea level.

Sentinels of the Arctic, Finland

image
These sentinels are actually giant trees covered in snow and ice. This strange sight occurs in winter, when temperatures range from -40 to -15 degrees centigrade.

Reed Flute Caves, China

image
This 240-meter-long cave system has been one of Guilin, China’s most popular attractions for over 1200 years. The beautiful stalactites, stalagmites and pillars were all created through water erosion. In the present day, they are highlighted by multi colored lights which create a truly surreal environment.

Skaftafell Ice Cave, Iceland

image
Ice caves are temporary structures that form at the edge of glaciers when flowing water melts a hole into glaciers. The tightly packed ice has very few air bubbles and absorbs all light except for blue, giving the ice its unique color.

Antelope Canyon, Arizona, United States

image

image
This canyon was formed by millions of years of flowing water that carved out a deep, yet narrow crevice. Since significantly less light makes it down to the deeper depths, the walls often appear to be different colors.

Sea of Stars, Vaadhoo Island, Maldives

image

image
It may look normal during daylight, but at night, this beach comes to life. The sparkle in the water comes from marine microbes called phytoplankton. The galaxy they paint across the shore is nothing short of breath-taking.

Turquoise Ice, Lake Baikal, Russia

image
Lake Baikal is the oldest freshwater lake in the world. In the winter, the lake freezes, but the water is so clear that you can see 130 feet below the ice. In March, frost and sun cause cracks in the ice crust, which results in the turquoise ice shards we see at the surface.

Zhangye Danxia Landform, Gansu, China

image

These colourful rock formations are the result of red sandstone and mineral deposits laid down over 24 million years. Wind and rain then carved amazing shapes into the rock, forming natural pillars, towers, ravines, valleys and waterfalls.

Glowworm Caves, Waitomo, New Zealand

image
Thousands of tiny glowworms hang to the ceiling of this grotto and radiate a luminescent light, creating a scene straight out of a sci-fi movie.

Pamukkale Hot Springs, Turkey

image
Over millions of years, the hotsprings in Pamukkale have transformed the landscape. Although it may look like these terraces are made of ice and snow, Turkey has bikini weather all year round. The ground is just coated in white limestone.

Caño Cristales River, Colombia

image
Due to its extensive habitat of fauna and flora, this flowing river appears in yellow, green, blue, black and red as you travel along it. The rocks here are around 1.2 billion years old, and those who visit call it the most beautiful river in the world.

Patagonia Marble Caves, Chile

image
Formed by thousands of years of waves crashing against calcium carbonate, these caves have smooth, swirling walls, which reflect the lake’s azure waters.

Underwater Waterfall, Mauritius Island

image
Strong ocean currents continually drive sand from the shores of Mauritius into the abyss below, creating this one-of-a-kind underwater waterfall.

Highlands, Iceland

image

image
The isolated highlands of Iceland have some of the most superb natural sights in the Northern Hemisphere. The mind-blowing glaciers, craters, lakes and geysers are breath-taking by day, but when night falls, the area becomes one of the best places to witness the aurora borealis.

Plitvice Lakes, Croatia

image

image
Plitvice National Park is the largest of its kind in Croatia and the oldest in Southeast Europe. Over thousands of years, water flowing over limestone and chalk created natural dams and eventually, beautiful lakes, caves and waterfalls.

Ban Gioc-Detian Falls, Vietnam/China Border

I would have posted the entire thing, but I didn’t want anyone to get annoyed over infinite scrolling, so I picked out my favourites to post. Really, I just wanted this on my blog as this is where I keep all the amazing things I find for easy access. As well, I added the Ban Gioc-Detian Falls.

i had a fucking epiphany today

Magical pond that changes color with the weather 

Kent Shiraishi took these photos of the Blue Pond, a beautiful body of water in Hokkaido, Japan. Blue Pond receives so much attention because of its shimmering blue hue, which changes into a lovely green in certain light. This pond owes its colors to aluminium hydroxide, a mineral which reflects blue light.
