Few people realize that there are places on Earth where humans beings have yet to set foot and which are, most likely, still entirely the preserve of wild animals. Many of them are so remote and inaccessible that it would take an enormous amount of time, effort, and skill to reach them.
And yet those we know, seen only from the air, are generally impressive in their beauty. Perhaps, despite all our achievements, it is precise because these places have not yet seen human intervention that they remain so captivating, places that have remained the same since the beginning of time, with an intact beauty.
What Are The Most Mysterious Places In The World?
Here are 10 of the most impressive and intriguing places on earth around the world untouched by mankind. Would you like to go there?
10. Forest Lake, Russia
The exact location of this mysterious lake is unknown. According to some, it can be found in the Tyumen region of Russia. How did it come to sit deep inside the forest? No one knows…
9. Tepui, Venezuela
The word ‘Tepui’ means ‘home of the gods’ in the language of the indigenous peoples of Gran Sabana, where these incredible and threatening natural structures are found.
8. Honokohau Falls, Maui
This remote place is drenched in greenery. The naked eye gives you an idea of the exquisite beauty, majesty, and mystery of the natural world. Imagine what it would be like to travel there.
7. The Amazon Rainforest
This immense and incredible forest spans nine different countries in South America: Brazil, Peru, Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia, Guyana, Suriname, and French Guiana.
It is so big that humanity can never hope to explore everything or know everything that is hidden there.
6. Gangkhar Puensum, Bhutan
This is the highest mountain in the world that has not been conquered by humanity. It is located in disputed territory between Bhutan and China and flies 7,570 meters in the sky.
5. Tsingy de Bemaraha, the ’stone forest’ of Madagascar
These rocky projections and canyons were formed over a period of a million years, predominantly underground in the form of huge caves.
Over the years, monsoon rains have been washed away meter by a meter of limestone and thick layers of limestone sediment, creating this unique and mysterious system of bridges, pinnacles, and natural gorges, which can reach up to 120 meters deep.
4. Kerguelen Islands
Hidden in the southern part of the vast Indian Ocean, these islands are extremely distant from France’s home country. There are no planes or tourists going there, and the only way to get there is by boat from Reunion, near Madagascar.
They can also be part of Atlantis since all of humanity knows these terrifyingly beautiful islands.
3. Rock Islands, Palau
For modern human civilization, the Rock Islands are a remote area of the world we no virtually nothing about. However, at some point in the last few thousand years, we can be sure that people have stepped on them.
We know this because archaeologists have found evidence of so-called “little people,” a branch of humanity that apparently had severely stunted growth, which used to live there.
2. Dallol, Ethiopia
Today, the extraction of salt takes place near the Dallol volcano, so strictly speaking, this is not a virgin area. But the immediate area of the volcano is, of course, uninhabitable.
Fascinatingly, scientists believe that the alien landscape of the volcano bears a striking resemblance to the surface of Io, the violently volcanic moon of the planet Jupiter.
1. Palmyra Atoll
Located in the equatorial Pacific Ocean, south of the Hawaiian Islands, this virgin island harbors a magical and mysterious force.
