1. Blood Falls, Antarctica

They call them Blood Falls, bloody waterfalls, and some are very impressive, as only a few know how that it is a natural phenomenon. What is the strange in all this? Phenomenon is caused by saline water rich in iron, which gushes out sporadically, by a lake that lies beneath the glacier, ending in another lake (Lake Bonney).

2. Pink Lake Hillier, Australia

From above, the lake appears a solid bubble gum pink, but from the shoreline it appears more of a clear pink hue. The source of the pink colour has not been definitively proven in the case of Lake Hillier. Althought the pink colour of other salt lakes (e.g., Pink Lake) in the region arises from a dye is created by the organisms Dunaliella salina and Halobacteria. Another hypothesis is that the pink colour is due to red halophilic bacteria in the salt crusts. The colour is permanent, and does not alter when the water is taken in a container.Use search form to book flights & hotels.

The Door to Hell is noted for its natural gas fire which has been burning continuously since it was lit by Soviet petrochemical scientists in 1971. It is fed by the rich natural gas deposits in the area. At that time, expectations were that the gas would burn out within days. But it is still burning, more than four decades after it was set on fire…
