These Weird Places On The Earth Are More Popular Than The “New 7 Wonders Of The World”- DO YOU KNOW WHY?


Some of the most beautiful and/or bizarre places in the world are not the most famous. You will hardly hear about them on national television, nor see them in magazines. Their beauty and history are simply too beautiful to be explained; it has to be experienced.

These are some of the most unusual places in the world.

1. The Skeleton Lake of Roopkund, Uttarakhand, India

There is no place on Earth with a stranger story this perennially frozen lake in Roopkund, India. A group of what was assumed to be Japanese soldiers was found dead by a British guard in 1942, but upon closer observation, it was decided that the deceased were not Japanese and certainly not soldiers.

A 2004 thorough expedition revealed that the group of over 200 would have been visitors seeking pilgrimage in the sacred area, led by locals who knew the area well. An old Himalayan folklore insinuates that there was this goddess infuriated by visitors tainting her sacred mountains, and so she likely sent a hailstorm hard as iron to rain on them. The trek to this bizarre skeleton-filled lake, which is frozen for most of the year, takes 3-4 days.
