10 Lake Kaindy Kazakhstan This has to be one of

first_img10. Lake Kaindy, KazakhstanThis has to be one of the world’s weirdest places. The underwater forest of Lake Kaindy in Kazakhstan’s Tien-Shan Mountains formed after an earthquake caused a landslide – leaving this strange-as site, where the trees are covered by water up to 30 metres deep. Scuba diving not for the faint-hearted. 8. Ngorongoro, TanzaniaOn our block all of the guys call her flamingo / Cause her hair glows like the sun / And her eyes can light the sky / When she moves she walks so fine like a flamingo. Manfred Mann obviously hadn’t actually seen a flamingo, because they walk in an ungainly fashion, and up close they’re pretty ugly, but hey, there are literally millions of them at Ngorongoro in East Africa’s Rift Valley. And zebras. Safari in South Africa? Honeymoon suite in the Seychelles? Or somewhere just a little bit more crazy? Where’s on your bucket list? We’ve picked 10 out-of-this-world places that you’ve just got to go someday. Maybe next year?1. Adršpach-Teplicei, Czech RepublicPlanning a trip to Prague? Take a day trip to the oddly beautiful Adršpach-Teplice Rocks National Park. The crazy sandstone formations are a playground for rock jumpers, but you can still appreciate them with the ground at your feet. 3. Salar de Uyuni, BoliviaDid you know that Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia is the largest salt desert in the world? Ok, another question, name a salt desert. Pretty weird. huh? 2. Meteora Monasteries, GreeceThere are UNESCO’s World Heritage sites, and there are… the Meteora monastries. These incredible eagle’s nest constructions in the Thassaly region of Greece, really, really deserve the honour. Fancy abseiling down one of these babies? No? Very sensible. 9. Whitehaven Beach, AustraliaWow! Often voted Australia’s best beach, Whitehaven is a little quieter than Bondi when the surf’s up. It is just one of many turqouise-and-white beaches on the rainforest-clad Whitsunday Islands off the coast of Queensland..

Halong Bay, VietnamSome 1600 islands and islets dot Halong Bay in a spectacle of surreal shapes and forms. No one lives on any of these weird and wonderful lumps of limestone in Vietnam’s Gulf of Tonkin because they are too dangerous. Basically, they are falling apart. The limestone is constantly being eroded, which makes for an outrageous land-and-seascape of arches, towers and caves.More: New 7 Natural Wonders of the World 7. Aït-Ben-Haddou, MoroccoYou may recognise this place. The fortified city of Aït-Ben-Haddou, between the Sahara and Marrakech has been a star location in a fair few films, inlcuding: The Man Who Would Be King, Gladiator, The Mummy and The Jewel of the Nile. 5. Seljalandsfoss, IcelandOn a slightly smaller scale than Niagara, but most impressive in its own way, Seljalandsfoss waterfall in Iceland. For a view you don’t often see on the screensaveers, take a trail behind this 200-foot high beauty, but make sure you wear a waterproof. Have you been to any of these amazing places?
