Check out the 8 most inaccessible yet stunning places in the world
Super-Kamiokande: Hida, Japan
The Super-Kamiokande is a neutrino detector, located 3000 ft under Mount Kamiokako in Hida, Japan. It was built for the sole purpose of detecting neutrinos, which are the among the most mysterious particles in existence. The Super-Kamiokande is an impressive structure, built to hold 50,000 tons of water. It is also covered in the glow of 11,146 photo-multiplier tubes which light up the place turning it into one of the most stunning places on Earth.
Devil’s Bridge: Ardino, Bulgaria
This picturesque bridge in Bulgaria comes with its fair share of strange legends and tales. Some say that the bridge is haunted by the spirits of the dead who killed themselves jumping off the structure, while others say that the devils footprints can be found hidden in the rocks. Chilling stuff, we say!
Drowned Church of Potosi: Uribante, Venezuela
Up until 2008, the Drowned Church of Potosi was a haunting visage of a time long gone. Only the cross at the top of the building was visible. It truly was a sight to behold. But then droughts and a water shortage caused the lake to dry up and slowly, piece by piece the magnificent church was slowly revealed. By 2010, all the water had receded leaving behind the wasted husk of a generation past.
Starkenberger Beer Pools: Tarrenz, Austria
These ‘beer pools’ in Austria are truly a sight to behold. Visitors (the very few that make it there) can take a dip in the beer while sipping on a cold one. Beerception, anyone? Apparently the beer in these pools also have a few medicinal properties as well. The high vitamin and calcium content is good for the skin and helps cure open wounds as well. There doesn’t seem to be too many people venturing out to these pools. We really don’t know why!
Margalef: Margalef, Spain
This little village in Spain is famed for its climbing surfaces but if you look a little closer there is a tiny village built into the mountainside. This place is so unique that you are never a few feet away from the mountain as soon as you step out a door. Mountain climbers will love the challenge these cliffs present.
The Milky Seas, Arabian Seas
This beautiful sight is caused by fluorescent plankton that rise to the surface of the water to feed. It’s such a rare event that marine biologists go ga-ga when it ever happens. If you ever get a chance to experience the magnificence of nature, consider yourselves incredibly lucky!
Buried Remnants of Little Compton Street: London, England
A little bit of history remains half buried under the modern world in London. Little Compton Street was paved over to make way for the streets of the next generation but under Charing Cross Road in London, there lies the remains of a long lost road. Back in the day the streets were much lower and were just layered over for newer roads.
Red Seabeach: Panjin, China
You might think that we’ve photo-shopped a picture of a normal grassland but it’s all real. This place is just unique that way. There’s no chemical or such causing this strange scene. It’s all just the local flora gone wild, in the best way possible.
Time to explore the unexplored, people!
