You may have travelled the world, but there may still be some unexplored territories for you that are even difficult to believe exist. Every day we get to hear the news or read in newspapers about some new and unbelievable places being explored by the photographers or avid travelers. It’s the geographical diversity, different climatic conditions and varied seasons that contribute towards creating natural wonders, such as the bewitching tulip or lavender fields, pink lakes, jaw-dropping mountains, and canyons, etc. and you probably cannot imagine these places in your dreams.
You may be wondering whether these places actually exist or not. But let me tell you that these places are not figments of imagination and exist in real. So, let’s find out about such places and I am sure after reading about them you will not resist yourself from imagining the beauty of those places and try exploring them:
1. Salar De Uyuni, Bolivia
Salar De Uyuni, situated in southwest Bolivia, is not only the largest salt flat in the world spanning about 10,580 kilometers but also the largest mirror on this earth. Yes, that’s true!! Here, you’d find that the surface is covered with the salt crust which exhibits remarkable flatness as per the variations involved in the average altitude within a one-meter area of the Salar. Besides, the great expanse of the area, clear skies and extraordinary flatness of the surface make the Salar a great object for attuning with the satellite-altimeter systems meant for earth observation.
When this place is covered with water, the view becomes so panoramic that it becomes one of the earth’s largest mirrors.
2. Tunnel Of Love, Ukraine
If you feel that love is in the air, then this is a must visit place for you. As the name suggests, the tunnel of love, situated in Klevan, Ukraine is a mesmerizing spot for the lovers. Earlier, it used to be just any other train rail section connected to the fibreboard factory, but it eventually got transformed into one of the world’s most romantic spots.
Do you know what belief people hold with this place? Well, it’s that if lovers who are sincerely in love with each other cross the tunnel together, their wishes will come true. Isn’t that amazing!
3. Mendenhall Ice Caves, Alaska
Are you adventurous and love to explore places for new experiences? Then, Mendenhall Ice Caves in Alaska is meant for you! The trip begins from the Mendenhall Valley where you’d find the West Glacier Trailhead. From there, you will embark on a journey at the trailhead with all your essential glacier and rain gear, including food and water. Let me tell you that this journey will not be easy as the trail is strenuous replete with slippery bedrock, mud, gravel, scrambling rocks and various downhill and uphill areas.
But after reaching the top, you will certainly feel that your efforts have paid off as from there you will find yourself surrounded by peaks and sceneries around the open bedrock slope and the ice edge.
4. Street In Bonn, Germany
I am sure, many of us know about the flower budding festival which is organized every year in Washington D.C. But did you ever think of taking a stroll across the pond in Germany amidst the cherry blossoms? No, then believe me that it’s not a street, but a magical tunnel in itself in the city of Bonn where the cherry blossoms like bonkers for about two to three special weeks every year.
5. Hitachi Seaside Park, Japan
If you happen to miss the season of cherry blossom in Japan, then here’s another one for you! The Hitachi Seaside Park located in Japan displays a stunning floral arrangement of about 4.5 million flowers which blossom every year during the spring season. This park is located in the northeast of Tokyo where the hills of this coastal park get blanketed sometimes with vivid magenta-coloured plants known as Kochia (termed as Bassia in English or Blue Nemopholia Flowers) and the sight is nothing less than miraculous.
