We challenge you to read on without reaching for your passport to jet off and see them for yourselves!

Another amazing lake, this one is located in southern Siberia and is the world’s largest freshwater bit of blue. Temperatures plummet to -19C in winter months, so don’t forget to pack the onesie.

8. The Door to Hell, Turkmenistan
Ok, so it’s actually a geyser, but ‘Door to Hell’ sounds much catchier doesn’t it? Plus, this burning pool of lava in Turkmenistan’s Karakum Desert, looks just how you’d expect a gateway to the underworld to look, red and hot and steamy.
