As fall slowly starts rolling in, people are checking out places to visit that don’t have your everyday sunny vacation vibe.
If you’re the type of person who likes unusual places that send chills up your spine, you should probably put these couple of locations on your “to see” list.
Our planet is a truly magical place and it has numerous absolutely stunning places with different magical energies, however, it’s also home to some places that aren’t really for the weak hearted.
Ireland’s Leap Castle
Known as one of the most haunted castles is all of the world, the Leap Castle is said to be ruled by an unseen force known as “the Elemental.” Located in a very sleepy part of Ireland, the hallways of the castle are reportedly patrolled by the force, which founds home there due to historic slaughters and it being built upon a torture pit. Yikes. Sometimes, location just isn’t “all that.”
Texas’ Jacob’s Well
If you like scuba diving and exploring underwater caves, you might feel the urge to jump in Jacob’s Well, the Texan over 100 feet deep natural spring. You might, but you shouldn’t. Over the years, many novice divers have disappeared in the depths of the well, and a bunch of people got badly injured while jumping into the well due to sharp rocks sticking out from the sides of the well. This is not your everyday dip in a pond.
Lithuania’s Hill Of Crosses
Originally a ceremonial site, Kryziu Kalnas is a hill in Lithuania where over 100,000 crosses stand in memory of the dead lost at war. This eerie place was bulldozed by the Soviet Union not once but twice, however, the locals only rebuilt it to be even bigger. This hill is definitely not the place to check out during nighttime, especially not in the winter when the wooden stairs screech and squeak.
India’s Jatinga Town
If you have a bird phobia, we advise you not to go to Jatiga, a small town in India. Although it’s pretty normal and regular almost for the whole year, in September and/or October the most unusual thing happens. Every year, in the most Biblical fashion, a massive bird “suicide” plagues the otherwise peaceful town. At the end of the monsoon months, the bird populations are attracted to the town’s lights in dark and foggy nights. The villagers then kill the birds, as they present a menace of some sort.
