It is no secret that the world is full of beautiful places, and many of them were hidden for a long time. There are cases of landscapes where nothing makes sense, and they seem taken from a movie or video game.
We bring you a top 5 of the places that do not seem to be on planet Earth, so that you can immerse yourself in the most incredible holes in the world we inhabit.
Mount Tianzi, China
We find the mountain where James Cameron was inspired to create Pandora, the land of his film Avatar. It has more than 300 vertical columns 300 meters high, and is located in the Zhangjiajie Forest National Park. It is one of the great tourist attractions in the country.
For your view, a cable car has been created that runs through the mountain at more than 1,000 meters high, with a landscape full of fauna, flora and incredible views.
White Waterfall Pamukkale, Turkey
Composed of limestone that gives it a cotton-like appearance, from which it derives its name (“Cotton Mountain”), it has been forming the terraces of thermal waters that it possesses, to which curative properties are attributed.
For its preservation, they have decided to protect the area, but they built replicas next to it, where you can bathe without problem.
Pozo de Darvaza, Turkey
The gates of hell have an image, and this is it. The 60-meter-diameter crater has been burning for more than 45 years.
It is literally full of gas, and according to the stories that are told about it, the original idea was to set it on fire and wait a week for it to go out, to be able to enter its interior … but we already know how the story continues.
Salar Uyuni, Bolivia
The largest salt desert on earth is 10,500 square kilometers, and it looks like it came from another planet. Its route is not short, to visit it completely you will need 3 or 4 days, since in addition to desert you will find lagoons of different colors, its own fauna, and rock formations worthy of admiration.
Melissani Cave, Kefalonia (Greece)
Legend has it that this cave with a large hole where you can see the sky was the home of the ancient nymphs. Inside you can see a turquoise and crystalline lake, which together with the light that filters through the hole and the contrast of the darkness of the grotto, creates a truly sensational color atmosphere.
To visit it, you must travel to the Greek island of Kefalonia, in the Greek archipelago of the Ionian Islands. The transfer to the grotto is done in small rowing boats, with a duration of about 20 minutes.
