Unique Places on Earth: Beachy Head in UK


The serene beauty of this typically English landscape stands at odds with its sinister reputation. Rising 162 meters above sea, Beachy Head is the highest chalk cliff on the southern coast of Britain. It is a well known local tourist attraction, and a conveniently placed bus stop allows easy access to the highest point of the cliff. This combination of easy access, great height, and physical beauty has contributed to the spot’s dark side. The average number of suicides per year committed at Beachy Head is 20, by far the highest for any single location in UK.
This suicide rate has prompted the authorities to install a hot-line telephone box with a direct connection to suicide support center. In addition, since 2004 the spot is patrolled several times per day by volunteers of Beachy Head Chaplaincy team (BHCT). read more

 

Unique Places on Earth: The Cavern of Death

The Liyobaa Cave
After the conquest of South America by the Spanish Conquistadores, the Catholic priests who were attempting to convert the heathen Indians discovered a cave entrance to what they called “Hell.” 
This entrance has since been sealed off with tons of rubble, dirt and huge stones and boulders.
“The village of ‘Liyobaa’ or to translate, ‘The Cavern of Death,’ was located in the province of Zapoteca, somewhere near the ancient village of ‘Mictlan’ or the village of the ‘Underworld.
“The Cavern of Death was actually located in the last chamber of an eight chamber building or temple. This temple had four rooms above the ground and four more important chambers built below the surface of the Earth. This building was located in “Theozapotlan,” and the tunnel entrance led one beneath a mountain.

This is also called as the secret entrance to creepiest underground tunnels of the world

So you thought always that Dead Sea is having the saltiest water in the whole world, then perhaps you are wrong. It is not the Dead Sea but Don Juan Pond which is said to be the saltiest water body in the whole world.
It was first discovered by two pilots Lt Don Roe and Lt John Hickey in the year 1961 and has been name after them only.It is a small lake, only 100m by 300m, and on average 0.1m deep, but it is so salty that even in the Antarctic, where the temperature at the pond regularly drops to as low as -30 degrees Celsius, it never freezes. 
You will be quite surprised to know that the water in the pond is around 18 times more saltier than the sea water while the Dead Sea Water is just 8 times saltier than the sea water.
