Mystical places and anomalous zones
Mount Olympus (mount Olympus) is located on the North-East of Thessaly. The height of 2917 meters and almost each of them is shrouded in myths and legends. In Ancient Greece, Olympus was the sacred place where gods live, which folded a lot of legends. In drops of dew can at the moment to see the look of Poseidon, grey stones keep the secrets of Hephaestus, and a light breeze reminiscent of the beautiful Aphrodite.
At the foot of the Northern slope of the mountain was the sanctuary of Macedonia — Dion, considered the city of Zeus. People wanted to be closer to those who worshipped, but didn’t dare go higher without extreme need, for heaven Kara could overtake the ignorant.
Olympus will never leave the spirit of Greek mythology. That is why this place is so popular among historians and adventurers. The opportunity to walk through the ancient abode of the gods is not given to everyone. Sometimes over the sacred mountain occur the unusual natural phenomenon: hovering strange clouds, raining down a beam of lightning or raging abnormally strong winds. They say that in such moments, the gods awaken from centuries of sleep and go to the top, like a mortal.
This mountain range is truly unique, as it is not only mythological and historical symbol, but as a natural monument. National nature reserve of mount Olympus, located within the Prefecture of Pieria and partly within the Prefecture of Larissa-Thessaly, is characterized by a huge biodiversity. Here there are 1700 species of plants, 23 of them are endemic, i.e. grow only in these parts. Sometimes on the slopes of the mountain you can find rare herbs, long-listed in the Red Book, samples of which across not more a couple times per decade. Perhaps it is because of these herbs Colchian Princess and sorceress Medea made a deadly poison for your rival Domes that took her beloved Jason…
Mount Roraima. Venezuela.
Mount Roraima, also known as «heavenly island», is located at the junction of Venezuela, Brazil and Guyana. Of the peak area of 31 sq km is impressive for its size. Roraima is one of the oldest geological formations on Earth, because it consists mainly of quartz Sandstone, which is about 1 billion years!
The Indians believe that this mountain is a fossilized remnant of the trunk of a huge tree that gave birth to all the fruits and vegetables of our planet. According to legend, the tree fell from the axe Macunaima, the villain of Indian legends. This mountain is also called «mother of all rivers», because on top of originate Orinoco, Essequibo and Amazon. Rivers descend from the «sky Islands» down the steep slopes of the dozens of beautiful waterfalls.
It is believed that on the flat top of the gods lived, so the table mountains called «tepui», meaning «house of gods». The Indians believed that there depart the souls of the dead. Therefore, before the arrival of Europeans in the Roraima no one comes up, afraid to anger the sleeping ancestors and potent deities. Even today there are indigenous Indians, believers in the gods of the sacred mountain, awarded to insight more people worship them. By the way, that Roraima inspired Arthur Conan Doyle to write the legendary novel «the Lost world».

It is worth climbing to the top and a storm of emotions engulf you. Seen is impossible to forget, and echoes of blissful euphoria will excite your blood, even after years.

Molebsky triangle. Russia.
Known joannamaria area, located opposite the village Molebka (on the border of Perm and Sverdlovsk regions) on the left Bank of the Sylva river. The discoverer of this zone is Perm geologist Emil Bachurin, who in the winter of 1983, found in the snow round the trail with a diameter of 62 m. in the Autumn of the following year he was also seen in the forest bluish glow in the form of a hemisphere.
Further studies showed the presence in the zone of strong dowsing anomalies. In the area observed a huge black figures, glowing orbs and other bodies, allegedly demonstrating the reasonableness of the conduct: they lined up in the correct geometric shapes, watched by members of the expeditions and flew away at the approach of a stranger.
In September 1999, during the 70th expedition «Kosmopoisk» in this area has been repeatedly observed sound mirages. All present several times clearly heard the sound of an approaching motor «humming machine» even went into the clearing, but… the car so no one saw. Machines, judging by the lack of tracks was not here at all for many months. The location of the zone is well known ufologists and tourists. In the early 1990-ies, when the number of visits to area tourists exceeded allowable limits, conduct any research in this area has become almost impossible. In the press appeared information that the Perm anomalous zone ceased to exist, and in the mid 90-ies of the tourist business in this location has decreased significantly. But in this case it is strange that to this day you can hear more stories about the collision with the mysterious forest areas.
The Reservation Of The Yakima. USA.
The Yakima reservation in southern Washington state, is the area most often visited by unidentified flying objects. The local Indians can tell you about her many mystical legends.
Particularly among them is the story about the mysterious man with the strange eyes. As the legend goes, he was an outsider that was able to cling to the tribe of the Yakima due to its ability to heal the sick. When he grew old, he asked to give him a special place to quietly leave this life. Indians say that after death the body of the healer picked up and took to the skies a mysterious flying object. Since then the abnormal phenomena in these areas have become commonplace.
It was here that in 1947, the first sightings of «flying saucers» marked the beginning of the current debates about UFOs. Locals began to tell stories about red, orange and even white lights that sometimes beheld in the night sky. Lights hang above the ground or Vice versa — to move with a speed unusual technique at the time.
In 1972, renowned astronomer and Explorer George. Allen Hynek, intrigued by the mysteries of the reservation Yakima, obtained financing sufficient to study the phenomenon. Professional equipment allowed us to obtain multiple snapshots of unidentified flying objects.
In 1973, under the guidance of Harley Rutledge, study of the anomalous zone came from the project «Identification». Thanks to a special program of action and improved facilities, they managed to get 12 photos of unexplained celestial lights and register 178 of UFO sightings. But despite the enormous amount of wasted resources, as well as the work of a whole team of scientists and engineers, researchers have not managed much progress in the study of unidentified flying objects.
The lake of death. Russia.
The current review is based on prohibited information, so we have no right to publish a geographical name, coordinates and documentary photography of the place. Otherwise we might be shut down for aiding and biological terrorism. But despite the fact that we are bound hand and foot in our classic format, we venture to make a survey for non-disruptive legislation of the Russian Federation.
The lake of death (code name) got lost in the middle of nowhere in huge mountains of the South of Russia. Unremarkable tiny pond for 1 year claimed the lives of several hundred living beings.
It all started with the fact that grazing animals returning from the lake side, began to guard by his behavior of the local settlers. People were not required of medical education to understand that excessive timidity, excessive salivation and unjustified aggression was not the norm. Moreover, all the animals, after a few days of strange behavior, died. People are frightened of the epidemic of rabies, notify the on-duty-dispatcher service, which in turn passed the information to public health authorities.
The lake had taken the sample, confirming the presence in water of strange living organisms. The infected pond was a real threat and residents of a small village that was located several kilometers away, it was decided to temporarily move away.
But the mystery of the Lake of death lay within itself. Under the rusted barrels of chemicals that were found on the muddy bottom, talked about the illegal release of technical waste. If they were disposed of properly, neither mutation of microorganisms or infected, respectively, would not be at all. Search of possible violators of a soiled environment, the result did not bring – in the district there was not a single plant or enterprise. Have stalled the investigation, there is suspicion of biological terrorism.
Unknown to science virus is very reminiscent of rabies, but that was not the infection through saliva is not happening. Samples of microorganisms were studied in the laboratory, the place itself is repeatedly examined by experts, but the problem required more detailed study. All attempts to decontaminate the reservoir failed and in order to avoid the epidemic, the area around the lake is cordoned off.
At the moment, to the Lake of death do not let anyone within a radius of 5km and it’s not just words. In the popular forum of climbers were already outraged cries that their usual route was disrupted by the military, strongly «asked» them to change direction.
What mysterious contents were in barrels and where they came from? If microorganisms access to residential areas via groundwater? Are viral the danger of wild animals and birds, is able to leave a secure area. The answers to these questions lie behind the seven locks.
