Unbelievable Places That Actually Exist

 
Welcome to Informative World. In this Article we talk about Unbelievable Places That Actually Exist (Part 3). Because I have already Published (Part 2) There Link Is Here Unbelievable Places That Actually Exist (Part 2)

Number 1, Pamukkale, Turkey.



In the Denizli Province in southwest Turkey there lies a remarkable geological site known as Pamukkale. It's been a popular tourist destination for thousands of years thanks to the bright white terraces that resemble a giant's water-flooded staircase. Indeed, Pamukkale means Cotton Castle in Turkish, spanning from an ancient legend claiming the formations are made of solidified cotton that giants left out to dry. In reality, these unusual steps are formed by the gradual accumulation of calcium carbonate materials from the flowing water of geothermal springs. 
While there are other similar sites around the world, 
Pamukkale has a unique feature of historical significance. The ancient Greco-Roman city of Hierapolis was built at the top of the structure, and expands out beyond it, containing some of the best-preserved Roman architecture in the world. This means you can do as the Romans did and bathe in the mineral-rich, warm, milky pools before a trip to the amphitheater. The picturesque site has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site and is Turkey's most popular attraction, just don't forget to bring a towel.




Number 2, Fingal's Cave, Scotland.



Often dubbed as one of the most spectacular sea caves 
in the world, Fingal's Cave can be found on the uninhabited island of Staffa in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. Staffa is located in an area that once experienced high volcanic activity, and Fingal's Cave was created as lava flows cooled. But what's with those strange pillars? Occasionally, when lava cools to form basalt, it cracks into hexagonal, geometric columns that look perplexingly man-made. Even more fascinating is that age-old myths told of a hero building a bridge from Fingal's cave to the similarly-structured Northern-Irish site known as the Giant's Causeway. Intriguingly, geologists have since confirmed that the two sites were both formed over 50 million years ago by the very same lava flow. It's an impressive connection to make so far in the past, and quite unusual. After all, science usually debunks myths rather than confirming them.



Number 3, Marble Cathedral, Chile.



This natural wonder in Patagonia 
was created by the deformation of marble by flowing waters over thousands of years, making this cave look like an immaculate cathedral. The caves' patterns are reflected in the waters, and vice versa, creating a mesmerizing spectacle. Depending on the time of year, the color of the water can vary from turquoise to deep blue. This is due to the varying levels of silt in the glaciers feeding the body of water as they melt over the course of the year. In winter, some parts of the cave that are usually below the surface are revealed, meaning the experience can be totally different depending on when you visit. That said, it's an arduous journey to reach this remote area. You have to fly 800 miles from Santiago to Coyhaique, drive over 200 miles of dirt roads and then take a small boat to get to the Marble Cathedral. But if you ask me, this marvel of marble is definitely worth it.



Number 4, Zhangye National Geopark.



The Rainbow Mountains within 
the Zhangye Landform Geological Park, China are such an incredible sight to behold, it's genuinely hard to believe they exist here on our planet. Covering 124 square miles, the sand and silt that make up the mountains include varying levels of iron and other trace minerals. Weathering and erosion over the course of millions of years revealed the underlying formations with different compositions. Today the mountains are a huge attraction for visitors and stand proud as one of China's most mind-blowing landforms.



Number 5, Tianzi Mountain, China.



With pillars of stone that seem to defy the laws of nature, 
Tianzi Mountain is found in Zhangjiajie, China. With a peak almost 4,000 feet above sea level, the mountain covers an area of 21 square miles. Rather than being a single, hulking mass, this mountain is composed of a series of bizarrely-narrow towers. These were formed by rising and falling layers of the earth's crust, as well as the erosive forces of a sea that once covered the area. Over time, water wore the pillars into the impossibly thin marvels we see today. The range is often topped by a sea of clouds, providing an endless series of awe-inspiring sights. In fact, the location was a direct inspiration for the sublime landscape 
of Pandora in James Cameron's "Avatar". 
But who needs movies when you've got a real place like this?
