Even if you’re not into traveling and seeing the world, from colorful springs to secluded plateaus these are the 25 most surreal places on Earth.


Fly Geyser, Nevada


Not an entirely natural phenomenon, it was accidentally created by well drilling. The well wasn’t capped correctly and the minerals started bubbling out.


Derweze, Turkmenistan


In 1971 Soviets were drilling around the small village of Derweze. They tapped into a cavern filled with natural gas and when the ground collapsed they figured they would burn the gas off to avoid poisoning the local atmosphere. It was thought that the gas would burn off in a couple days but it is still burning today.


Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia


The world’s largest salt flat at 10, 582 square km this place holds 43% of the world’s lithium reserves.


Sossusvlei, Namibia


Located in the southern part of the Namib Desert in Namibia the name roughly means “dead-end marsh” because while it is a drainage basin, it has no outflows.


Mount Roraima, South America


It serves as a triple border between Venezuela, Brazil, and Guyana. Because of its remoteness the plateau has its own flora and fauna.
