Throughout the world, there are attractions that cannot be missed and have become a part of the collective mind: the pyramids in Cairo or South America, the Vatican, the Eiffel Tower in Paris or Westminster in London. These are places where tourists are expected, regardless of the time of the year. But there are many other destinations that are not so well-known and only people who live in the surroundings know of.
In the following you have a list of some of the most beautiful travel destinations, only ten, to begin with, about which you’ve had no idea that existed...
1. Explore Jiuzhaigou Valley, a remote part of the north Chinese province of Sichuan, which covers an area of over 72,000 hectares. The area is known for its Tibetan settlements and waterfalls on several levels, forming lakes with such a clear water that you can see their bottom.
2. Explore the mysterious "crooked forest” in western Poland: there are 400 pine trees, all growing in a strange angle of 90 degrees. The reason why these trees are inclined remains a mystery to this day.
3. Submerge yourself in the clear waters of Hinatuan River in Philippine, on the island of Mindanao, more precisely. The saltwater stream is called "the Enchanted River" because it seems to spring out of nowhere and is an ideal location for divers and snorkeling enthusiasts.
4. Climb the Haiku Stairs of Oahu, Hawaii - known as the "Stairway to Heaven", this location is actually a steep trail, equipped with a wooden ladder, fixed against a rock wall. Technically, this place is not open to the public, but there are many who climb to the top, to admire the magnificent view from above.
5. Travel to Pangong Tso Lake, a salt water pool located in the Himalayas between India and Tibet. Its clear, turquoise waters contrast with the magnificent mountains that guarded it, forming a truly magnificent landscape.
6. Go kayaking in the Apostle Islands, situated near Lake Superior in Wisconsin. The group of 22 islands is full of caves, and in winter, tourists can admire the frozen waterfalls and caves.
7. Take a walk through the Hitachi Park in Ibaraki, Japan, a reserve that covers an area of 190 hectares, with flowers that bloom throughout the year. The place is a paradise of daffodils.
8. Soothe your feet in the hot water springs in Rotorua, a city in New Zealand, known for its geysers, hot springs and mud pools. It is better known under the name of "Sulphur City", and those who come here can enjoy water sports in one of the 17 lakes in the area.
9. Visit the largest coral reef in Lofoten Islands, an archipelago located off the coast of Norway, which stretches from the Arctic Circle. Here live otters, elks and many species of birds.
10. Take part in a festival alongside Kalash, an indigenous tribe that lives in Rumbur Valley in Pakistan. People here live without electricity, telephones and newspapers and they are also known for organizing traditional festivals, which attract locals and tourists alike.
