Tourist destinations these days have gone above and beyond our expectations, with trips that lead tourists down unbeaten paths and unchartered territories. One such tour that’s offered is a trip to outer space! The catch of course, is that it costs thousands upon thousands of dollars and requires you to be at the pinnacle of health. So really, it’s actually a tour for thrill-seekers who happen to have a truckload of cash to blow off.

But for those who don’t want to do anything so risky, there are places worth seeing right here on earth that look like they belong in another planet. The 15 places on this list are nothing short of ethereal-looking, giving them that aura of being out-of-this-world. Seeing these places is definitely a feather in one’s wanderlust cap and you don’t even have to go beyond the stratosphere. Some are obviously more accessible than others, but they’re definitely easier to get to or even see from afar than flying to outer space and landing on a mysterious planet!

1 Door to Hell, Turkmenistan

via:www.lovethesepics.com

You wouldn’t expect a place with such ominous a name as Door to Hell to look anything but daunting. Located in the Turkmenistan village of Darvaze, this natural gas field has been burning continuously and started doing so quite by accident. Four decades ago, geologists were drilling for gas, accidentally igniting it from a large underground cavern. They expected it to cease, but it kept spewing incessantly and still does up to this day, earning it the name Door to Hell.
