No artist in the world can measure up to the creative genius of Mother Nature. Some of nature’s works are on display, others have not yet been discovered. These places are so unusual that if you didn’t photograph them, you wouldn’t believe they exist. A dark forest straight from the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm, a field of tulips striving for perfection, caves that no one has seen from the inside for centuries and a salt reservoir that acts as the world’s largest mirror. So take your cameras with you when we’re in some of the most unique and exciting places in the world.

He is known for his characteristic curved Krzywy Las trees and is the owner of these strange J-shaped pines. This forest of about 400 trees has attracted the attention of conspirators and scientists. The reason for the unusual shape remains a mystery, but it is certainly a must for all adventurers.
Salar de Uyuni – Potosi, Bolivia
With a surface area of more than 10,000 square kilometers, it is the largest salt plain in the world. The salar was formed as a result of various transformations in prehistoric lakes. The Salar de Uyuni is now covered with a few meters of salt crust and during the dry season it looks like a huge white desert, which makes it a spectacle, but during the rainy season the apartment becomes a huge mirror that reflects everything from the starry sky to the bright blue days.
Black Forest – Baden-Württemberg, Germany
The Black Forest is the ideal place to let your imagination run wild. The Black Forest consists of 6000 square kilometers of high mountains, rivers and an enchanting forest. The forest is also home to many abandoned mining factories and houses with ancient world architecture. Whether it’s a troublemaker who wants to do a trick with his friends, or an old ghost crying and screaming to avenge his death, it could be the perfect place for all your supernatural needs.
Quang Xi Waterfall – Laos
If there ever would be a paradise on earth, it would be the act of the Quang Xi Falls, about 29 kilometers south of Luang Prabang. In a waterfall with three levels, the water is so deliciously turquoise and blue that you can only dive into it. The shallow pools have become a popular destination for hikers, and a walk there is definitely worthwhile to witness this beautiful nature.
Ice caves – Mutnovsky volcano, Russia and Mendenhallovskie ice caves, Juno, Alaska
The caves around the Mutnovsky volcano are known for their different colours, which can even be seen from the cave; the lights are the result of sunlight penetrating through the ice under the cave. The cave itself was formed by an underground river flowing out of the volcano.
The Mendenhall ice caves are one of the few places where you can discover all stages of the water cycle at the same time. The glistening blue walls are visible from the inside of the sacred glacier. A glacier about 20 kilometers long near the center of Juneau in southeastern Alaska. However, these caves are difficult to access without a guide as some areas are known to collapse or melt.
Tulip fields – The Netherlands
Another absolute miracle that deserves attention are the many, many tulip farms in the Netherlands. These farms are so rich in beauty and colour that you can only imagine their splendour when you see them with your own eyes. The immense width of the fields makes it even more dreamy. It seems that nature just puts her colours on the palette before she writes the next masterpiece.
Tunnel of Love – Life, Ukraine
You can almost take a picture of the rival elves meeting each other or of the lottery around the tunnel of love in Ukraine. The railway tunnel between Kleven and Orziv is covered with bright green plants that form a canopy around the tracks. The tunnel is about 3 kilometers long and is a fairly common place where couples go together.
Wisteria Tunnel– Japan
The incredible Kawachi Fuji Garden is located in Kitakyushu, Japan. There are 150 wisteria flowering plants, including 20 different species. The flower tunnel, which is the main attraction of the garden, is so beautiful that it can only belong to the world of anime. Visitors can walk under a canopy created by flowers and express their immortal love.

The cave was first discovered in 1986, when the workers tested its suitability for a power plant. In doing so, they discovered areas of the cave that had not been touched by man or light for 5.5 million years and were based entirely on chemosynthesis rather than photosynthesis. The Movielet Cave is not the most hospitable place, but the atmosphere is poisonous and many scary slides flourish in this area. The cave is home to about 69 species, 33 of which are endemic. Given the state of the cave this year, we may have to leave it untouched for several million years.

Located on the border between the Banyuwangi and Bondowaso regions of East Java, the volcano emits blue smoke instead of lava. The flame closes close to the surface and creates a fascinating spectacle. The blue flame is the result of burning sulphur gas. The gases are then cooled down to liquid sulphur and then go further down. According to National Geographic, the Kava-Ijen crater lake at the top of the volcano is the largest reservoir in the world filled with hydrochloric acid. Actually, it’s the acid that makes the water green. As strange and dangerous as it sounds, it should be our best choice for the most incredible places on the planet.
