Many people believed that this was the result of a witchcraft but modern science has discovered the actual reason behind the petrifaction of objects in the water of the well. Objects turn into stone just because of the natural process of evaporation and the presence of unusually high amount of mineral content in the water.

  1. Grüner See: It’s a beautiful lake located in Austria. The lake is surrounded by snow clad mountains and forests. The valley underneath take the shape of a park which acts as a resting place of hikers. Therefore it consist of benches and bridges etc. During the summer the snow starts to melt and the depth of the lake starts to increase. Eventually the park goes under the water ad it becomes a spectacular site.

3.Shanay-Timpishka: In the Amazon forest there is a boiling river. The river is 4 km long, 82 feet wide, and 20 feet deep. The river temperature ranges from 120F to 196F. The water is so hot that it actually boils. The river is well and truly magical since it located far away from any active volcano.

4.The Beacon of Marcaibo: This is the place with the highest concentration of lightning on Earth. The lightning takes place relentlessly in the region over the years and months. The phenomenon takes place in the region where the Catatumbo river joins with the lake. It occurs because of high amount of storm cloud concentration in the region. There is an average of 260 storm days per year.

5.The Blue Pond of Hokkaido: In order to prevent the destruction caused by the volcanic eruption in the town of Biei in Japan a dam was built on Biei River. As a result a number of small ponds were borne and the blue pond is one of them. The colour of the water in the pond has turned blue because of the presence of high amount of sulfur and components of lime in the water. The pond is not only significant for its blue colour but also for the presence of high amount of trees in the water. That makes the pond even more beautiful.

6.The Ringing Rocks: The Ringing Rock Park is a park covering an area of seven acres filled with rocks and boulders. The rocks that are present on this park is completely different from any other rock because when struck with any hammer like object it creates a peculiar sound just like a ringing bell. However it is still unclear why these rocks makes such a metallic sound when hit with an object. It is assumed that since the rocks contains a very high amount of iron component they make such metallic sound.

7.Kawah Ijen-Volcano with Blue Lava: The Kawah Ijen Volcano in Indonesia is regarded as one of the most unusual volcanoes on Earth. Instead of producing red lava and blck flame it produces lava that is blue in colour. The reason behind this variation in colour is the presence of high amount of sulfuric gases in the lava that takes the blue colour when it comes into contact with air temperature above 360°. The blue flames are visible only at night and the sight is well and truly a spectacular one.
