Mysterious places around the world

 


Landmannalaugar, the Highlands, Iceland

Deep in the Highlands of Iceland lies Landmannalaugar, a unique, undulating landscape made up of rhyolite crags, lava fields and natural hot springs. The region is favored by hikers who come in summer to admire the colorful mountains (made bright by geological deposits over centuries), and to keep watch for the trolls and elves that purportedly lurk amid the bluffs.

Mysterious Places around the world


Waitomo Glowworm Caves, Waitomo, New Zealand

The Waitomo caves are beautiful in their own right, with their airy chambers and winding underground river. But it’s the caves’ glittering residents that make them so otherworldly. Arachnocampa Luminosa glow worms – a bioluminescent species native to New Zealand – collected here in their thousands, illuminating the caverns and putting on a twinkling show for the tourists who typically take guided boat rides here.

Dark Hedges, Ballymoney, Northern Ireland

This haunting avenue of trees is best known for its appearance in fantasy series Game of Thrones. It doubled as the Kingsroad in the cult TV show, though it was originally planted in the 1700s by the Stuart family, who wanted an imposing entryway to their mansion, Gracehill House. Today the bowing beech trees are purported haunted by a specter named the Grey Lady. These are the most mysterious places in the world

Beautiful places around the world

 


The Pinnacles, Western Australia, Australia

Hundreds of “pinnacles” – natural limestone crags formed from seashells – dot the yellow desert of Nambung National Park, making the Aussie preserve look like another planet. Carved out more than 25,000 years ago, some of the forms top out at more than 11 feet (3.5m). It’s not uncommon to see kangaroos hopping or emus strutting between the rocks, either.

Beautiful Places around the world

 

Castell y Gwynt, Snowdonia, Wales

A saw-toothed crown of Snowdonia’s Glyderau range, Castell y Gwynt – meaning "Castle of the Wind" – soars to more than 3,000 feet (914m). Its jagged spires look a little like a brooding fairy-tale fortress, so it’s no surprise that the peak featured in Disney’s Dragonslayer, a 1980s movie with wizards, dragons and plenty of glimpses of the dramatic North Wales landscape. Discover more places you won't believe are in the UK.

Beautiful places around the world


 

Haleakalā National Park, Hawaii, USA

This is about as close to the stars as you’re likely to get. Haleakalā, the name of the dormant volcano within the park's limits, means “House of the Sun” in Hawaiian, and the location is famed for its epic views of the sunrise. Nosing right up to the clouds, the Summit Area is the most otherworldly swathe of all: it’s all rich cinder desert scattered with native shrubs, plus brighter than bright stars winking by night.
