4. LOCH NESS, SCOTLAND, UK
References to a lake monster in Loch Ness dates back to 565 AD. Some people consider it a living dinosaur or a serpent that swam into the deep freshwater lake before it became landlocked in the Scottish highlands. More than 1,000 people claim to have seen ‘Nessie’, and dozens of inconclusive and ambiguous photos and videos have surfaced over the years, making the area a popular tourist attraction.

5. BERMUDA TRIANGLE, NORTH ATLANTIC OCEAN
The triangular shaped area in the North Atlantic Ocean, from Bermuda Island to Miami, USA to Puerto Rico is infamous for disappearance of hundreds of people, boats, ships and planes that have dared to cross it. Some call it alien activity while some claim to have experienced an electronic fog in the area, which could be a time travel tunnel. The Bermuda Triangle is one of the rare places on the planet where the compass points in the true north direction instead of Earth’s magnetic north.
6. SAN LUIS VALLEY, COLORADO, USA
Southern Colorado’s San Luis Valley is not just a 125-mile (200-kilometer) stretch of the majestic Rockies front range but also has a notorious reputation for being a hotspot for UFO sightings. Paranormal and UFO sightings in the region go as far back as the 1600s. Local dwellers often report spotting silver balls and saucer-shaped objects flying overhead. Several books have been written and documentaries made on the strange occurrences in the valley, and a UFO Watchtower has been created by Judy Messoline for curious observers.
