The world we are living of often found with many amazing things, we all heard about the 7 wonders of the world, but there are some bizarre places on earth which really amaze us a lot. In this blog we are going to see the world’s 3 most bizarre places, so let’s dig in.
The Blood falls of Antarctica
The falls was first discovered in 1911 by Griffith tailor an Antarctic scientist. At the earlier stage the scientists speculated red algae was coloring the water, but now new researches shows the cause is even more surprising and creepy.
Blood falls is fed by a million-year-old pool of water Beneath the Taylor glazier, they are rich in iron which gives oxygenated blood its red color. When the water reaches the surface oxygen turns it the same color rate as human blood, and there is an additional discovery that there are 17 different kinds of microbes are present in the water.
Scientists believe microbial life flourishes in this isolated pool without oxygen or sunlight, so it would be a new kind of life the kind astronomers think that exist on frozen moons, because no life on earth can survive without oxygen and sunlight. But these falls with numerous microbes does that and live in extreme conditions and make look more bizarre.
Skeleton Lake, India
Skeleton lake is situated at an altitude of 5,029 meters in the Himalayas. In 1942 a British forest guard in roopkund, India made a shocking discovery that some 16,000 feet above sea level at the bottom of a small valley was a frozen Lake with full of skeletons.
Although there are reports about these bones found in the lake are from the late 19th century because it’s being war time, at first British authorities terrified of Japanese land invasion and the skeletons where the remains of the Japanese invasion force.
They send a team of investigators to determine if this was true, but it was found that the skeletons were far too old to be Japanese soldiers.
Shallow Lake having a depth of about 2 meters roopkund has attracted attention because of the human skeletal remains that are visible at its bottom when the snow melts.
The skeletons found align with bits of nails and hair which is preserved as well as in addition wooden artifacts and leather slippers and jewelry where are also found, it is believed that the skeletons numbers around 300.
Many theories were put forth including an epidemic land side or a ritual suicide for decades, till date no one was able to shed light on the mystery of skeleton Lake, all the bodies date to around 850 AD and DNA evidence indicates that there were two distinct groups of peoples.
Mount Roraima (The Lost World of Earth)
Mount Roraima at 2800 meters, is the tallest table mountain in South America, the name Roraima came from the Pemon word roroi- ma meaning big blue green.

In 1884 sir Everardim became the first person recorded to climb the Roraima, the mountains of this range including roraima are considered to be some of the oldest geological formation known some dating back to 2 billion years ago its near daily rains have also created a unique ecosystem which includes several endemic species switches unique carnivorous pitcher plant and some of the highest waterfalls in the world.
The ecosystem, the insects and few of the animals that are found in this mountain range are only seen in this mountain and none where in the rest of the world. This evolution found this place has never seen in any other places of the world.
