As you go on living, there comes certain times when you tend to forget about the strangest places you have heard of. A place where people suicide, the lake where you don’t know the depth or that one place from people don’t return. There are so many strange places yet to explore. Places where we were unable to derive a scientific explanation. An unexplored corner of wonder and fear.

10. Varosha, Cyprus

11. Akodessewa Fetish Market, Togo

12. Goblin Valley State Park, Utah, USA

13. Socotra Island, Yemen

The island of Socotra is blessed with an incredible biodiversity system. It is home to plants and trees that aren't found anywhere else in the world.


14.The Giant’s Causeway, Northern Ireland

These incredible rock formations were formed from a volcanic eruption that happened 60 million years ago. Due to its perfect formations, local legends say that it was built by Giants.


15. Plain of Jars, Laos

Mysterious giant stone jars are scattered over hundred of kilometers. Their origin is unknown but local legend says that these were used to brew wine for Giants and others say that these huge cylindrical jars were used in ancient funeral ceremonies. 



Some of the most bizarre places on earth aren't necessarily haunted, instead most places are haunted by the memories of the terrors and that were once committed there. The absence of life in a place is in fact an ancient link to the past.
