The 5 Trippiest Destinations

Earth is full of mind-blowing natural architectures, landscapes and imagery. Some of them defy even our wildest imagination. If you've been stuck in the concrete jungle, you might have forgotten how mystical of a place we really reside in and forget about all the color amidst the grayscale. Luckily, we've compiled photography of 5 trippy destinations you should check out before you check out.

The Grand Prismatic Hot Spring in Nevada is a sight for sore eyes. It's color is an effect of its mineral rich water and it is the largest hot spring in the US.

The earth's mirror, Salar De Uyuni in Bolivia is a salt flat created when prehistoric lakes joined together. When it rains, it becomes so reflective that we use it to calibrate satellites from outer space.

The Fly Geyser in Nevada is the cross roads between man and nature when a well was left uncapped and minerals and algae started to rise out of the geyser.

Lake Hillier, Australia has a delicious pink hue. It's color is caused by the algae and bacteria in the water, but it's not harmful to humans or wildlife.

Deadvlei in Namibia is exactly what it sounds like... a dead valley. The picture below is real! Dead trees against a backdrop of the highest sand dunes in the world.

Your eyes are not deceiving you, it's a water fall underwater in the Mauritius Island. The ocean current from the peninsula pulls sand from the shore deep into the abyss.
