The World in which we live is full of beautiful and unique destinations. A few are very popular because of their natural beauty, but a few are not commonly known. Exploring the beauty of this World is, I think, my best passion, and exploring new, beautiful and unique spots is a wonderful job. This article is an effort to highlight such amazing spots which are not as commonly known. Here in this article, the top ten amazing places to visit are discussed. And I am sure it will be an amazing thing for all the tourists in the World.
10. The Door to Hell (Turkmenistan):
The first amazing place in the World, which I would like to discuss, is The Door to Hell, and it is enlisted as the tenth most visited place among the top ten places to visit. It is basically a natural gas field and is present near Derweze, Turkmenistan, and in its wideness, it is approximately 70 meters wide. The Door to Hell is been burning continuously for about 35 years. It was first all lit by geologists who were searching for natural gas deposits in 1971. When it was uncovered, it caused destruction by collapsing the ground, and all of the equipment was taken down deep into the earth. And geologists who were working on it dared not to go inside and to bring back their things as it was very risky. And this hole is not yet covered and is burning. In the present time, The Door to Hell has become a tourist’s attention, and people from all over the World visit this place in Turkmenistan.
9. Mount Roraima Venezuela (Brazil and Guyana):
Mount Roraima is enlisted as the ninth most visited place in the World and is a very eye-catching place. It is known by another two names, Tepuy Roraima and Cerro Roraima. It is basically a tabletop mountain, and 400 meters of high cliffs surround it from all sides. This remarkable place was, for the very first time, discussed by Sir Walter Raleigh, who was interested in exploring the World in 1596. An amazing thing about it is that it serves three different locations as a border point: Venezuela, Guyana and Brazil. Every single day, rainfall happens on the peak of the mountain just to wash nutrients for plant growth and also to form a different landscape on the sandstone surface area. Mount Roraima is situated in the Guiana Shield, which is on the southeastern side of Venezuela. The highest point is 2810 meters, and that is Maverick Rock.
8. Meteor Crater (USA):
So next on my list of top ten amazing places to visit is Meteor Crater, and it is enlisted as the eighth most amazing and remarkable place to visit. It is situated about 37 miles east of Flagstaff and 18 miles west of Winslow in the northern Arizona desert, United States. Initially, the site of Meteor Crater was given the name of Canyon Diablo Crater, and fragments are known as Canyon Diablo Meteorite. Scientists refer to it as Barringer Crater in the name of Daniel Barringer, who, for the very first time, suggested that its production is just because of meteorite impact. It is owned by Barringer Crater Company, and they proclaimed it the best-preserved meteorite crater in the entire World. It was credited as a National Natural Landmark in November 1967.
7. The Great Dune of Pyla (France):
The Great Dune of Pyla is next on my list of amazing and beautiful places; it is the seventh most amazing place and worth watching. And when we talk about its highness, its length, its width, then it is 3 km long, its height is 100 m, and it is 500 m wide, and the amazing thing about it is that it is present in the forests of Europe, which is quite strange. It is present 60 km from Bordeaux, Arcachon Bay Area, France and is believed to be the tallest dune in entire Europe. The Great Dune of Pyla gained popularity for being a paragliding site. Since it is higher than all the trees which are surrounding it, it gives a charming and captivating view of the sea of the forest. It is just because of its location, and natural beauty is an eye-catching destination, and thousands of tourists visit it every year.
6. Socotra (Republic of Yemen):
The next amazing place that comes under discussion is Socotra, and it is enlisted as the sixth most amazing and wonderful place to visit. Socotra is an archipelago with four islands and is in the Indian Ocean. It can be spelt as Soqotra as well. It is believed to be the most alien place on the earth because it is in isolation and has a very dry and damn harsh climate, and the result of this is that the life of plants is nowhere in any other place and has in it the famous Dragon’s blood tree and also a very unique and unnatural plant that is in umbrella shape and produces red colour fluid. It is unique and seems alien not only because of such sort of plants, along with plants lots of birds, animals and spiders etc are also part of this island. It has the greatest biodiversity as no other place in the Arabian Sea has and is designated as a World Heritage Site.
5. 83-42 Greenland:

It would not be wrong to say that this place is not as impressive as other places are, but it has curiosity in it. 83-42 Greenland is considered to be the northernmost permanent chunk of land on the earth. The size of it is 35m by 15 m and is not as high; its height is 4m. When we see it from somewhere high place, it seems a small spot of land which is surrounded by shards of ice. It is an ultimate uniqueness when only the North Pole is full of ice and ground not. Its uniqueness was found in year 1998, and it is a record breaker in uniqueness. Yes, the record made by ATOW in 1996 was broken by it in later years.

This amazing city is commonly known for its geothermal activity; it has geysers like Pohutu Geyser at Whakarewarewa boiling mud pools, which are located in Rotorua city. Its “rotten eggs” spell, which is because of the geothermal activities of the city, is also a reason for its popularity. This city is seriously amazing and very unique.
