Top 10 Most Bizarre and Mysterious, Strangest Places on Earth

There are a number of mysterious places as well that bring us to another world or may prove to be terrifying for many of us.

You could even visit, yourself, and find the places relatively free of tourists and packed to the brim with mysteries. However, you may agree that some of these creepy mysteries are just better left alone…

1. Bermuda Triangle

The Bermuda Triangle is one of world’s most mysterious places. It is also known as the Devil’s triangle. It is present in west of Atlantic Ocean between Miami, Bermuda and San Juan. It captivates the attention of many researchers and scientists, and is said to be a place where a number of aircrafts and ships were disappeared.

2. Overtoun Bridge, Scotland

50 dogs in the last 50 years have jumped off the Overtoun Bridge in Dumbarton, Scotland. They met their death on jagged rocks 40ft below the historic location. The most recorded was five dogs in just a six month period. All of the tragic incidents took place at the same spot; on the right-hand side between the last two parapets. The Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals labelled the phenomenon a “heartbreaking mystery”.

3. Stonehenge

Stonehenge in Wiltshire, England was built between 3000 BC and 2000 BC and modified throughout several stages the last 5,000 years. Theories abound from the transport and placing of the rocks to the significance of this central meeting point. Still, many gather around this mystic site for the summer and winter solstice every year.


4. Bigelow Ranch


The Bigelow Ranch, also called Skinwalker Ranch and Sherman Ranch, is another mysterious place. This is situated in the southeast of Ballard, Utah. Reports reveal that it is the site of UFOs, and paranormal activities. One of the tales depicts that here an entire family was killed and their spirits now wander in the area.


5. Hotel del Salto, Columbia


Tequendama Falls is a 515ft tall waterfall that attracts thousands of tourists a year. Many flock to the locations to admire the stunning natural surroundings just 30km southwest of Bogatá, the capital city of Columbia. With so many heading to the area it is no wonder Hotel del Salto, positioned overlooking the entire valley, was such a success. Since 1928 they welcomed many travellers who were blown away by the breathtaking view.


Then the hotel abruptly closed it’s doors in the early 1990’s and the location became something of a local legend. There had been a rise in suicides surrounding it’s closure and some claim that the area is cursed which forced the hotel owners to abandon their business and run for safety.

6. Easter Island


Not only were the people, or the Rapa Nui, living in this remote island, they built these 887 giant Moai rock statues, the lightest weighing 86 tons, and were able to move them around from platform to platform around the island. How the Rapa Nui accomplished this feat? We can only begin to guess.


7. Michigan Triangle


The Michigan Triangle is located in the middle of Lake Michigan. It is said to be the place where sea and land crafts were disappeared strangely. A lot of stories are associated with this area. One of them is the disappearance of Captain Donner in 1937 from his cabin, followed by many others.


8. Area 51


Secret Military Base, famously known as Area 51. It is said to be the home to a captured fleet of alien flying saucers and alien bodies - after the infamous Roswell UFO crashed in 1947.

There have been theories that aliens and their wrecked craft were taken to Area 51 for examination and that scientists have managed to set up future meetings in the desert with other alien life-forms.
Although none of the theories have been proved to be true.


People also speculate that weather control, secret weapons, time travel and teleportation have also being developed in this area.

For years, US govt denied the existence of Area 51, until December 8, 2013 when President Obama made an off hand comment about Area 51, becoming the first President to publicly acknowledge its existence. 

9. The Devil Sea


Also known as Dragon's Triangle because of ancient legends suggesting dragons living off the coast of Japan.

There has been a lot of suspicious activity along this region like numerous disappearances of ships and planes.

In 1952, the Japanese Government sent an investigation team of 31 members. Sadly, the whole team including the ship disappeared in the sea, never to be seen again.


Another story tells of Kublai Khan's disastrous attempts to invade Japan by crossing the Devil's Sea, losing at least 40 000 men in the process.

Other speculations range from aliens, to gates to parallel universes, high volcanic activity leading to disappearances and even to Atlantis. 

10. Nazca Lines


These massive ground drawings in the city of Ica, less than 200 miles south of Peru’s capital of Lima, measure up to 660 feet. In its entirety, most of them can only seen on airplanes or from observation towers. The reason these drawings exist remain unknown, but the latest theory suggests a labyrinth for spiritual journeys.
