Some Weird and Mysterious Places on Earth

Our world is full of mysteries. There are many places in the earth which are very peculiar and weird. Science and modern technology have not yet found the facts about their mysterious behaviors. Some places have such natural diversities that some of them become tourist spot and others become death zone for people. Such types of mysterious places are

The Bermuda Triangle

Bermuda Triangle
The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil’s Triangle. This triangle is made up with three region named Bermuda, Puerto Rico and Miami. It is a region in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean in which a number of aircraft and surface vessels are alleged to have mysteriously disappeared in a manner that cannot be explained by human error, piracy, equipment failure, or natural disasters. Popular culture has attributed these disappearances to the paranormal, a suspension of the laws of physics, or activity by extraterrestrial beings. Apparently it doesn’t seem alien but it is really scary! However, it’s still one of the most traveled routes in the world.

Easter Island Statues

Easter Island is a Polynesian island in the southeastern Pacific Ocean. Easter Island is one of the most remote inhabited islands in the world. The well known statues on the Easter Island, remain mystery for the researchers. The statues are over 50 feet tall, but no one has a clue who built them, why they built them, how they were brought there, and so on.

Racetrack Playa

Sailing stone
Racetrack Playa in California is well known due to its sailing stones. The stones slowly move across the surface of the playa, leaving a track as they go, without human or animal intervention. No one knows how, but the stones there somehow manage to move from their original position, leaving a track behind them. The reasons are still unknown and are subject of research. It is supposed that the winds in the valley are “responsible” for this.

Aurora Borealis

An aurora is a natural light display in the sky at night, particularly in the high latitude (Arctic and Antarctic) regions. In northern latitudes, the effect is known as the aurora borealis (or the northern lights), named after the Roman goddess of dawn.  The Cree people call this phenomenon the “Dance of the Spirits.

Mount Roraima

Mount Roraima is located on the triple border point between Brazil, Guyana and Venezuela. It is weird because of its shape, but is also mysterious because of the clouds that are always near the peak and the endemic fauna. The tabletop of the mountain, which is the peak actually, is considered as one of the world’s oldest geological formations.
