Imagine taking a walk between mountains which are not only majestic in size but are literally multi-colored like a painter’s canvas! How mind-blowing would that be? While Paris and Santorini are exceptionally beautiful, there are a few stunning places on Earth that you have probably never heard of before.
1. Infinity Pools
We all have seen infinity pools at the top of posh hotels. However, in the Turkish city of Pamukkale, you will find a gorgeous group of natural infinity pools. The water in the pools are 34 degrees Celsius, making it perfect for a bath under the Aegean sky. The white limestone, coupled with the pristine blue water of the pools, make it one of the most beautiful and rarest spectacles on Earth.
2. Rainbow Mountains
These magnificent rainbow mountains can be found in China’s Zhangye Danxia Geological Park. The multi-colored stripes are the result of different minerals building up on the mountains over the last 20 million years. The different shades of yellow, red and orange make it look like a real-life Instagram filter!
3. The Blue Lagoon
Situated in Reykjavik, Iceland, the renowned Blue Lagoon is probably one of the most picturesque water bodies you will ever come across. Despite being located in a cold country, the water is quite warm due to geothermal activity at the bottom of the lagoon. The Blue Lagoon gets its perfect shade of blue from the silica that is mixed with the water.
4. Island of Northern Lights
Although the Lofoten Islands are located within the Arctic Circle, it is quite warm because of its anomalous height above sea level. This Norwegian Island can present you with one of the most hypnotic experiences as you can see the famous Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights. You can see them in the night sky during the winter. Its natural beauty, along with the magical Northern Lights, can make the Lofoten Islands the most calming getaway for you.
5. Grand Prismatic Spring
The most unique and beautiful contender on our list is surely the Grand Prismatic Spring. Located in Yellowstone National Park of USA, this giant hot spring has a layer of colors all around it, similar to those of a prism. The coloration is the result of bacteria and other microbes on the edge of the water. However, because the center of the spring is very hot and sterile, the water is perfectly blue. From a distant view, it looks a lot like a gigantic, burning eye!
Whether it is a rainbow-hued mountain or a prismatic spring, the world has more beauty to offer than we can ever get to know of. While planning your next trip, definitely consider making one of these places your destination!
