These eight unbelievable landscapes are so unique that they look like they are from another planet.
#8 “The Wave” is on the slopes of the Coyote Buttes in Arizona
#7 “Pink Lake” Lake Hillier in Western Australia
Lake Hillier (aka Pink Lake) is located on Middle Island, just off the south western coast of Australia. High contents of the organism Dunaliella salina are responsible for its unique and vibrant color, and yet despite the high levels of salt, the lake is currently safe to swim in.

Located in Northern Ireland, the Giant’s Causeway is one of the most scenic road trips you’ll ever take.
#5 Moss-covered rocks in Reykjavík, Iceland
Visiting the Blue Lagoon during your trip to Iceland? (Of course you are.) Be sure to add the moss-covered rocks to your to-do list, which are located just a short distance away from the Blue Lagoon.
#4 Zhangjiajie National Forest Park in China
Zhangjiajie National Forest Park was inspiration for the film “Avatar” and it’s easy to see why. This unique forest is located in Hunan, and is a must-visit during your next trip to China.
#3 Fairy Chimneys in Cappadocia, Turkey
The Fairy Chimneys are located in the breathtaking town of Cappadocia — a personal favorite of ours. Cappadocia was easily one of the highlights of our trip to Turkey!

Pamukkale, which translates to “Cotton Castle,” truly is just that. If you’ll be in Izmir during your Turkey travels, be sure to plan a trip out to Pamukkale.
