The world is such a vast place that a lot of beautiful wonders are yet to be discovered. And even if a few handful have already come across these places, some haven’t reached the popularity and admiration it deserve.
In here, we list the top 14 beautifully eccentric places all around the world.
#14. The Morning glory pool of Yellowstone National Park.
Morning glory pool is considered the most beautiful pool and a must-see of Yellowstone National Park. Its colors are because of the existence of heat-thriving bacteria, making a stunning display of hues. The delicate blue water is created by thermophilic bacteria, which thrive in the pool’s searing heat.
Over the years people threw coins, bottles and trash in the pool, reducing its flow and causing the red and orange bacteria to creep in from its edge, replacing the blue bacteria that thrive in the hotter water at the center of the pool.
The trash has slowly built up and blocked some of the thermal vents and reduced the heat of the pool, allowing other bacteria to begin working their way in at the edges, creating a red and yellow ring around the pure blue center. While this rainbow hue is indeed beautiful, it is a fragile beauty, as the invasive yellow bacteria continues to close in.
#13. The Great Blue Hole in Belize
The Great Blue Hole is a large submarine sinkhole off the coast of Belize. The hole is circular in shape, over 300 m (984 ft) across and 124 m (407 ft) deep.
It was formed during several episodes of quaternary glaciation when sea levels were much lower. Analysis of stalactites found in Great Blue Hole shows that formation took place 153,000; 66,000; 60,000; and 15,000 years ago. As the ocean began to rise again, the cave was flooded.
The Great blue hole is believed to be the largest of its kind in the entire world. This spot has become more than a sink hole, as it is home to different species of fish and other water life forms.
#12. The Puente del Inca natural rock bridge in Argentina
Puente del Inca in Argentina is one of the most remarkable natural wonders. It is a natural stone bridge over the River Caves, situated 2,720 m above the sea level in Mendoza. Researchers suppose that in ancient times ice covered the river, and the ice sheet formed a support for snow, dust and rocks that fell from the nearby mountains in avalanches.. This stone bridge over the Rio Mendoza has rock walls and the remnants of an old yellow-colored spa underneath.
There are large quantities of mineral deposits that have collected underneath the bridge. There are provisions for hot bath at an ocher calcareous structure over Las Cuevas River. It is one of the most visited thermal centers. The geological formation of the bridge of Inca Argentina is strange and is an interesting place for history lovers.
It is recommended that you do not miss this natural wonder of Argentina if you are traveling to the province of Mendoza in Argentina.
These rock walls are covered with bright orange and yellow bacteria mats produced by natural sulfur springs.
