Scientifically impossible places that actually exist
1. THE BOILING RIVER
The Amazon rainforest is a place where the line between fact and fiction seems to blur into obscurity, although as scientists respectfully probe deeper into this enigmatic jungle, some of its most outrageous myths are turning out to be true.
2. NEVERENDING LIGHTNING STORM
Located at the mouth of the Catatumbo river, there’s a storm that rages continuously, with 250 strikes of lightning an hour. This phenomenon has been going on for centuries and it’s so massive that it’s visible up to 400 kilometres away.
3. THE HUM OF TAOS
Inexplicable sounds are nothing new, but an eerie hum that lingers throughout the small town of Taos has been baffling people for years. The sound was first reported in 1993, when a group of locals complained to Congress about it.
4. CIRCLES OF NAMIBIA
For years, scientists have been trying to figure out where these patches originate from. They’re known as “fairy circles,” ranging from five feet to 130 feet wide and can only really be seen from a bird’s-eye view.
5. THE SLEEPING CITY OF KALACHI

6. THE DOUBLE TREE OF CASORZO
This Italian anomaly is a mulberry tree with a cherry tree growing on top of it. Scientists still are not sure how this came about, but it is likely that a bird dropped a cherry tree seed on top of the mulberry tree.
7. LAKE KARACHAY
It is located in the southern Ural mountains of Russia, and is now the most polluted place on the planet. In 1990, just standing near the lake for one hour would expose you to a radiation dose of 600 roentgen, which can lead to death.
8. MOVILE CAVE

10. THE DEVIL'S KETTLE
