Sometimes it is almost unbelievable that there are so many weird places around the world. Dream away and be amazed and surprised by these 10 weird places around the world that Travellerlines has listed for you.
Weird Places Around The World
1- Stonehenge, Amesbury, England:
Stonehenge is still one of the weird places around the world that you should visit at least once in your life. Nobody has an idea for which the stone circle once served, but we know it was built during the Young Stone Age. This special boulder spectacle can be found in Amesbury, 134 kilometers from London.
2- Glastonbury Abbey, England:
Now that we are in England: the Glastonbury Abbey is also such a special monument. The origin of this magical miracle is also unknown but may go back to 63 AD.
The abbey was destroyed several times and since 1908 the ruins have been owned by the Anglican Church.
3- Moeraki Boulders, New Zealand:
They look like petrified dragon eggs, the Moeraki Boulders. The large, perfectly round, gray boulders have a circumference of up to four meters and are spread over approximately fifty meters of beach between Moeraki and Hampden on the South Island of New Zealand.
In the past, it was thought that this was the work of the gods, but research has shown that the pebbles originated some sixty million years ago on the seabed.
4- Old Bagan, Myanmar:
Bagan was once the capital of the historically important kingdom of Pagan and, between the 11th and 13th centuries, home to more than 10,000 Buddhist temples, pagodas and monasteries, many of which remain. Surrounded by a beautiful landscape, it looks like you have landed in a different world.
5- Delphi, Greece:
The Delphi archaeological excavation is at an altitude of 500 meters on the southern slope of the Parnassus in Central Greece.
It consists of limestone and marble ruins of temples and oracles that were dedicated to the gods Apollo, Dionysos, and Pythia. From 590 BC the Pythian Games were held here, consisting of competitions in music, poetry, and sport. Since 1987, Delphi has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
6- Lake Hillier, The pink lake:
During your Australia visit, The pink lake should not be missed. You will see a series of beautiful colors. On both sides of the pink water lies white sand surrounded by a deep green forest. And beyond is a blue sea.
In all likelihood, the substance comes from certain organisms that live in the water. There is no optical deception: if you fill a bottle with water from this lake, then that is really pink in color.
7- Ringing rocks: The buzzing rocks:
In the American Pennsylvania, you will find an area with some very special rocks. The moment you hit or hammer on these rocks, they make a sound like a bell. You can ask yourself how, for God’s sake, someone comes up to hammer on a rock, but that aside. Much more interesting is of course how this phenomenon originates. Scientists haven’t decided yet.
One theory is that all rocks produce a sound frequency when you hit it, but you can’t hear it as a person. But the moment the rocks are connected, they all start to produce sound, so you can hear it. In the form of a sounding bell. Boing!
8- Salem, Massachussets , United States:
Salem is known for its witch trials from 1692, a phenomenon that is still used to lure tourists. Although the trials were conducted in Salem, most of the suspects came from the then Salem Village, later Danvers.
9- The pyramids of Giza, Egypt:
On to distant Egypt, where the pyramids of Giza are part of the Seven Wonders of the World.
The pyramids are an example of the enormous human skill in mathematics and building techniques and are among the oldest works of humanity. They are located about eight kilometers southwest of the city of Giza.
10- Kawah Ijen “The blue volcano”:
Perhaps the most bizarre place on Earth is the blue volcano on the Indonesian island of Java.
There are more volcanoes there, but apart from the Kawah Ijen, there is no one that spits out blue neon lava. The word “lava” is not really applicable to this phenomenon. This is because of pure sulfur. This is heated and rises in gas form from the volcano. When it cools, it is converted into liquid sulfur, which then flows from the volcano.
The neon blue phenomenon is best seen in the dark. It also gives light. No doubt a proud number 1 on this list of strange places on Earth.
