Have you seen a glittery beach or a rainbow coloured tree? Nature plays weird tricks. Here are some examples of strange natural wonders.
RAINBOW TREES, HAWAII
Eucalyptus Delta are rare trees. You can see them in Ceram, New Britain, New Guinea, Mindanao. The trees shed the old bark. When the new bark emerges, it is a beauty to watch it. The barks become the colour of the rainbow. It becomes colourful. The blue, red, purple, orange tones give an unnatural beauty.

The shores of Vaadhoo beach in Maldives are magical. The phytoplankton in their water emits light. The blue waters glow at night due to bioluminescence. One of the nature’s anomaly – a strange natural wonder.
BLOOD FALLS, ANTARCTICA
The name itself makes you wonder what is it? The East Antarctica is a pristine piece of land. Many strange things are going on here. But the Taylor glacier is something out of a vampire movie. The red colored water flowing through the snowy landscape is haunting. The color of the water is due to the presence of iron oxide in it.
DOOR TO HELL, TURKMENISTAN
Sounds chilling. The door to hell is a gas crater in Derweze. It is the creepiest place on the earth and its name is so for a reason. Located in Turkmenistan, Derweze was a place rich in natural gas. The cavern where natural gas buried was exactly the place where geologists tapped. Because of which a whole rig collapsed to the ground.
The geologists to prevent methane from spreading in atmosphere decided to burn it. Since then a crater the size of the rig is here (230ft wide,66ft deep). It might have occurred due to man’s activity. But the structure is a natural one. Hence you can call it one of the strange natural wonders.
LIGHT PILLARS, RUSSIA
You can witness this magnificent sight in Moscow. During the evening it seems like the doors of heaven open up. The sky shoots up with pillars of light. You will not see this anywhere else in the world. The reason behind one of this strange natural wonders is ice crystals. The minute ice crystals hang in the air. The light from sun, moon or terrestrial source hits them. The angle of crystals is planar or parallel. It leads to the sky lighting up.

The dreamer in you will get excited to know what is an underwater forest? Where is it located? The Kaindy Lake in Kazakhstan has an underwater forest. The lake is a part of Tian Shan mountain. During a massive limestone landslide in 1911, the forest got dislocated. The result is sunken wood inside the lake Kaindy. The trees have not rotted because of the scientific conditions in Kaindy.
