Most Alien looking landscapes on Earth

Most Alien looking landscapes on Earth

Unreal landscapes on our very much real Earth are like gates to different worlds. These places blow our minds and cross the limits of our imagination. Sometimes Climate changes and volcanic eruptions create places which totally look extra terrestrial.
Here is a collection of 10 most alien looking landscapes on Earth. I hope you will like it.

Steam, bubbles, rocks and ice combine into breathtaking, though, alien-looking landscape. The island has no trees, few people and is the biggest glacier in Europe.

The hole filed with burning gas called by locals “the door to hell” is in Uzbekistan but could be as well quiet spot somewhere on Venus.

Eye of the Sahara called Richat Structure has a diameter of almost 30 miles. Placed in Mauritania, it is so huge it can be visible from the space.
Socotra Island

Dry, hot and harsh climate made Socotra Island looks like a grotesque computer animation. Hyperbolic plants, funky-looking trees and pink flowers can be great inspiration for graphic designers.

An ancient, acidic river in Spain Rio Tinto is a favorite environment for acid- and metal-loving extremophiles. It does not look like human-friendly and, in fact, it is not, but surely it could quench the Terminator’s thirst.

The Antelope Canyon, located on Navajo land near Page, Arizona looks more like an oil painting than a rock formation. Not without reasons it is the most visited canyon in the southwest America.
Yellowstone National Park

The terraces of Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone National Park are created by heat, water, limestone, and rock fracture. The formation is like a living sculpture that is constantly changing by flowing water and erosion.

The icy forms of glaciers are located around the world. That’s how I imagine Pluto and Neptune, the coldest planets in the solar system.

The Mars’ landscapes of Skagen in Denmark do not really fit into the image of the richest and most developed country in the world. The moving dunes and deserted beaches run into the end of Europe where the Baltic Sea clashes with the North Sea.

Salar de Uyuni, the world’s largest salt flat and is located in southwest Bolivia. The salt desert surrounded by cactuses, volcanoes and geysers looks as if it was a remote planet, far from our solar system.
