We are blessed with some incredibly magnificent natural treasures by Mother Nature. These sights are not only among the oddest and most bizarre on the world, but they are also breathtaking in their majesty and beauty. It seems that the more unusual, the better.
Valley of the Moon, Argentina
Situated in the Ischigualasto Provincial Park, the Valley of the Moon is frequently referred to as the most surreal location in Argentina. It’s an isolated, parched terrain made up of millions of years’ worth of wind-eroded rock formations. From the now-extinct Cacán language, the name Ischigualasto means “place where the moon alights.”
Vermilion Cliffs, USA
The Vermilion Cliffs, towering sandstone escarpments in Arizona, are the source of the name of the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument. Over millions of years, erosion has exposed hundreds of layers of brilliantly colored rock strata. The White Pocket structure, which resembles a massive, melting chocolate sundae, is depicted.
Trollkirka Caves, Norway
The word “troll church” is trollkirka. Ascending to this striking natural wonder, hikers are rewarded with a striking network of limestone and marble caverns fed by crystal-clear waterfalls.
Grand Prismatic Spring, USA
The biggest hot spring in the country is the Grand Prismatic Spring in Wyoming’s Yellowstone National Park. With colors that closely resemble the majority of those seen in a rainbow, it’s also one of the most striking.
The Haukadalur Valley in Iceland is a vast geothermal field full with bubbling geysers and other geothermal attractions. The largest geysers are Strokkur and the actual Geysir, which is where the word “geyser” originated.
Devil's Kettle, USA
The Devil’s Kettle is a unique waterfall and rock structure located in Minnesota’s Judge C. R. Magney State Park. It is where half of the Brule River falls into a pothole. Where does the water go, though? According to hydrologists, water that seeps into the rock returns to the river from below.
