Pamukkale, Turkey 

Pamukkale is a small town and UNESCO World Heritage Site in the southwestern part of Turkey. Pamukkale boasts seventeen of the most incredible water terraces in the world. For thousands of years, people have travelled to bathe in these hot springs, which usually range in temperature from 35 degrees to 100 degrees Celsius. Equally captivating in the striking contrast between the glistening pools and the travertine, it is a type of limestone deposited by thermal waters that make the surrounding mountains ever so beautiful. However, today, visitors are no longer allowed to take a dip in the turquoise pools.

Eternal Flames Falls, Orchard Park, New York 

The Eternal Flames Falls is a small waterfall located in the Shale Creek Preserve, a section of Chestnut Ridge Park in Western New York. One can see a flickering flame burning inside a teeny tiny waterfall. At first, you might not see it, but once you stare a little deeper, you will find the flame burning bright. Every day a lot of methane gas escapes from this place, making it highly flammable. Witness the magic unfold before your eyes as you visit this park and see the fighting flames of fire inside the waterfall. Most of the time, the water extinguishes the flames, but it lights up again almost immediately.

Blood Falls Antarctica

Imagine a snowy white mountain having a bloodbath in between, sounds bizarre, right? Well, in Antarctica, there is a blood red waterfall staining the white Taylor Glacier! However, the eerily gory waterfall is not, in fact made of blood. The blood falls of Antarctica may have been a mystery for quite some time now, but it is not anymore, thanks to the researchers and glaciologists who have concluded that this occurrence was due to iron oxide, basically rust, which is present in the water. The water that flows from the lake creates this blood red hue and eventually makes it look like blood is flowing out of an unseen wound.
