After writing about The Top 9 Unique Lakes In The World, we decided to continue our nature wonders discoveries and to explore the land to see what other wonderful places we can find. During our research we came across some of the most amazing forests in the world and we decided to create a list with these magnificent places that will surely be loved by nature lovers from all over the world.
The Blue Forest, Belgium
The Blue Forest’s actual name is Hallerbos but the nickname is definitely a proper one since, for a few weeks during spring, the forest is carpeted with vibrant Blueball Flowers that add a magical fairy-tale aura to the forest.
Crooked Forest, Poland
From a fairy-tale forest in Belgium to a fairy-tale forest in Poland, we think it’s safe to say that nature loves fairy-tales, especially the ones that involve forests. The mysterious bent trunks of the approximately 400 pine trees attract visitors from all around the world.
Avenue Of The Baobabs, Madagascar
All nature enthusiasts know that Madagascar is a country where they can discover unique species of plants and animals. Madagascar’s forests are as unique and beautiful as the rest of the country. Avenue of the Baobabs is a protected area where baobabs are up to 800 years old and up to 25 meters tall. There are 6 baobab species that can be admired in Madagascar out of the 8 that exist in the entire world.
Quiver Tree Forest, Namibia
Namibia is home to some incredible forests that feature unique species of trees and plants, and Quiver Trees Forest is one of them. In 1995, this forest was proclaimed a national monument because, although quiver trees are common in Southern Africa, there are only a few proper quiver forests on the continent.
Deadvlei Forest, Namibia
As we mentioned, Namibia is a country with very unique forests and, since we mentioned the Quiver Tree Forest, we also have to mention the Deadvlei Forest, also knows ad the Dead Tree Forest. Located in Namib-Naukluft Natural Park the forest is formed out of dead trees that are believed to be 900 years old. The dry climate keep these trees frozen in time, not allowing them to decompose.
Stone Forest, China
Situated in the Yunnan Province, Stone Forest is part of the South China Karst, a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. The forest is not an actual forest but an astounding set of limestone formations that are allegedly more than 270 million years old. The unique rock formations look like petrified trees, this is why this region is referred to as the Stone Forest.
Sagano Bamboo Forest, Japan
Since we mentioned the Stone Forest that is not an actual forest, we also have to talk about Sagano Bamboo Forest in Japan. Not an actual forest because bamboo is grass, not a tree, but the views they create are definitely those of a majestic forest. Sangano Bamboo Forest is not the only bamboo forest in the world but it is definitely the most famous and breathtaking one.
