Top 22 most mysterious places on Earth

Although many of the mysteries of these places have logical and scientific explanations, some still remain unsolved. We invite you to remember and learn about the science, stories, theories, and myths that surround the strangest places on Earth.

1 – The Bermuda Triangle

Bermuda Triangle

In the Bermuda Triangle, which covers a vast area of 1,290,000 square kilometers between Bermuda and the cities of Miami and San Juan, more than 20 planes and 50 ships have crashed with no obvious explanation, and some have disappeared altogether. Theories range from suggestions of supernatural activity to more logical hypotheses that it is due to a change in the magnetic compass or anomalous waves 30 meters high.

2 – Rishat, Mauritania

Astronauts have been observing the Richat Structure, also known as the Eye of the Sahara, in Ouadane since humans were first able to enter outer space. When viewed from the height of the International Space Station, the whirlpool, 48.2 kilometers wide, resembles a bullseye or a snail’s shell. Previously, it was thought that the “whirlpool” was the result of a meteorite fall, but now experts suggest that it is a former geological dome, which over time collapsed.

3 – Stonehenge, UK

Stonehenge, United Kingdom

The ring of stones has long been one of Britain’s most famous and mysterious sites, and historians and scientists have been baffled by how its creators managed to move monoliths here 5,000 years ago. In 2019, students at Newcastle University, found a possible solution to the mystery when they discovered that humans (not aliens) could haul the rocks using narts (special sleds) greased with pig fat.

4 – Falls of Eternal Fire, USA

Eternal Flame Falls

The enchanting orange-red glow of Eternal Flame Falls, glimmering behind a stepped waterfall in Chestnut Ridge Park, New York, is sustained by natural methane gas that seeps through cracks in the rock. It’s sometimes extinguished by the spray, but park visitors can “bring it back to life” with an ordinary lighter.

5 – Uluru, Australia

Uluru, Australia.

Uluru Rock, also known as Uluru, Ayers Rock, is located in Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park in Australia’s Northern Territory. For centuries, the sandstone monolith has not only amazed travelers with its unique color, but it is also a sacred place for the Anangu Aboriginal people, who believe that Uluru was erected directly by their ancestors, the creators of the world. Scientists speculate that the monolith began to form about 550 million years ago, and centuries of erosion and folding have shaped its characteristic oval shape. The red color of the surface is caused by oxidation, while the “fresh” rock beneath the oxidized layer is gray.

6 – Blood Falls, Antarctica

Blood Falls.

On the coldest and perhaps the most mysterious continent in the world is a blood-red waterfall that breaks through the ice. Geologists originally thought that algae gave the water its red color, but it’s actually much more interesting than that. The story of Blood Falls began about two million years ago, when a pool of salt water became “trapped” inside the Taylor Glacier. The high iron and salt content of the enclosed lake with no access to air caused the water in it to turn a rusty red color, which eventually seeped out from a crack in the ice.

7 – Winchester House, California, USA

Sarah Winchester, whose late husband invented the Winchester rifle, bought this San Jose mansion in 1886 and spent three decades turning it into a maze of 160 rooms, two basements, 10,000 windows and 2,000 doors. Many of the doors in the Winchester House extend from the upper floors directly into the street, with staircases resting on ceilings and dead ends. A popular theory is that, haunted by her late husband’s murderous invention, she created a labyrinth to confuse evil spirits.

8 – Nazca Geoglyphs, Peru

The sands of the southern Peruvian desert have some 300 figures and drawings, from spider to hummingbird, and some lines are more than 3.2 kilometers long. The origin of the pre-Columbian geoglyphs, covering an area of about 322 km, has long been associated with extraterrestrial civilizations, and or seen as a giant calendar. Now the most popular theory is that this is how ancient peoples marked the sites of rituals related to water and crops. But no one will know the exact truth anymore.

9 – The Big Blue Hole, Belize

Many divers and underwater explorers, including French writer and explorer Jacques Cousteau, have been trying to unravel the secrets of the world’s largest sinkhole, which is about 304 meters in diameter and 122 meters deep. They remained a mystery until late 2018, when an expedition team that included Jacques’ grandson, Fabien Cousteau, and Sir Richard Branson, took video from a submarine and discovered stalactites and “unidentified footprints” on the walls.

10 – Roswell, New Mexico, USA

Roswell, New Mexico.

The town of Roswell in the southwestern United States is probably the best place to start alien conspiracy theories. The small New Mexico town hit the headlines when in 1947 a ranch hand claimed he had stumbled upon the wreckage of a flying saucer crash. It was quickly explained as a meteosonde rather than a UFO crash, but the rumors never went away.

11 – Racetrack Playa, California, USA

Racetrack Playa

Could it be some inexplicable magnetic force that makes rocks slide across the cracked, dried lake bed in California’s Death Valley? Or the invisible hands of some higher power?

Racetrack Playa, Calif.

It seems that in 2013, scientists debunked that mystery as well, discovering that Racetrack Playa’s boulders are moved by the wind when the ground is covered in ice. But this desolate place is still mesmerizing and doesn’t lose its sense of mysticism.

12 – Bran Castle, Romania

Bran Castle, Romania

Mysteries shroud this castle like an eerie mist at dawn. Legend has it that the bloodthirsty 15th century ruler Vlad Tepes, known to be the prototype for Count Dracula in Bram Stoker’s work of the same name, was once imprisoned within its medieval walls. Although there is no evidence that he visited the place at all, the castle remains a magnet for fans of the Gothic atmosphere.

13 – Hoya-Bachu Forest, Romania

Almost any forest can seem eerie when no one is around and the trees are shrouded in fog. But the forest of Hoya-Bachu emphasizes the strangeness with its crooked trees that wiggle as if frozen in a dance. Legends tell of encounters with aliens and disappearances of people in the forest (because of this, it has been dubbed the “Bermuda Triangle of Romania”). The biggest mystery is the clearing, the central zone where nothing grows, and no one still knows why.

14 – Area 51, Nevada, USA

A top-secret military airfield northwest of Las Vegas is a treasure trove of conspiracy theories. This active Edwards Air Force Base facility, known as Area 51, attracted attention during Cold War-era aircraft tests, sparking rumors of sinister experiments, a staged moon landing and a laboratory run by aliens. It is strictly forbidden to enter the base, and on Google maps the base is a big white spot.

15 – Lalibela Rock Temples, Ethiopia

Lalibela’s pink churches carved into the rocks are stunningly beautiful, but the 11 monolithic structures are even more striking for their history than their view. King Lalibela, who ruled in the 12th and 13th centuries, is said to have carved each temple himself (but rumor has it that angels helped him). Although it is more likely that thousands of slaves helped him.

16 – Ijen Volcano, Indonesia

This milky turquoise lake looks very tempting to swim, but the water must never be touched. The basin formed in the crater of Ijen volcano is the largest acidic lake in the world. Tongues of flame the color of electric blue flashing in the air are both frightening and fascinating, and there is a scientific explanation. High levels of sulfuric acid, which give the water its striking hue, ignite on contact with the air.

17 – Pyramid of Cheops, Egypt

The pyramid trio at Giza is one of the most recognizable landmarks on the entire globe. The largest of the three, the Pyramid of Cheops or Great Pyramid of Giza, is the oldest of the seven wonders of the ancient world and the only one still standing. Nevertheless, its origin is still shrouded in mystery, and scientists are constantly theorizing about how such a huge and complex structure could have been created without modern tools.

18 – The Curved Forest, Poland

Located in the Polish town of Gryfino, the Curved Forest is formed by about 400 pine trees, all of which have an almost identical curvature at the base of the trunk. Their curved appearance has spawned many theories about the origin of this anomaly, including that a snowstorm or strong gravitational pull may have changed the shape of the trees. Some speculate that the bends were created artificially with tools. However, the assumptions remain unproven.

19 – Teotihuacan, Mexico

No one knows who built and originally lived in this huge and complex pyramid city, which is believed to have been abandoned about 1,400 years ago. The area, covering about 20 square kilometers, later became a pilgrimage site for the Aztecs, who gave the city its name Teotihuacan de Artista. The remains of the apartment buildings suggest that about 100,000 people lived here and worshipped the gods in temples connected by a wide “Alley of the Dead.”

20 – Moeraki Boulders, New Zealand

An ancient Maori legend says that these boulders represent gourds or food containers thrown ashore with the wreckage of the canoe wreck in which their ancestors sailed to the South Island of New Zealand. Another theory suggests that they are eggs of alien origin. Geologists, on the other hand, claim that the boulders formed from sediments on the seafloor about 65 million years ago, and eventually “settled” on Coecohe Beach.

21 – Devil’s Bridge, Germany

The Devil’s Bridge, or Devil’s Bridge, in the German Azalea and Rhododendron Park Kromlau is so beautiful that it is perhaps more correctly called a fairy tale bridge. But its real name has to do with supernatural associations. The enclosed structure, along with the reflection in the water, forms a perfect circle – a clever engineering trick that many consider something otherworldly.

22 – Gates of Hell, Turkmenistan

This view is like an episode from a nightmare – a gaping chasm of fire tearing a hole in the Earth. The Darwaz gas crater, or “Door to Hell” or “Gates of Hell,” was discovered in 1971. Engineers were drilling for natural gas in the northern desert of Turkmenistan when part of it collapsed into an underground cave. To prevent the gas from spreading further, the crater was set on fire, and it is still burning decades later. Now Darwaza is a calling card of Turkmenistan and one of its most popular attractions.
