Here are the top bizarre mysteries in India that will leave you in shock!
1. Kodinhi, Kerala
Out of the many mysterious villages in India, this one village in Kerala has an extraordinary fact to its name. On average, 16 out of 1000 successful pregnancies result in twins. However, Kodinhi records 400 pairs of twins among a population of only 2000 families. Scientists have developed various theories about this mystery. The fact that irrespective of religion or heritage, they still conceive twins is more surprising. Is it genetics or just luck?

2. Kuldhara, Rajasthan
Many of the unsolved mysteries in India root in the villages. In 1825, the Paliwal Brahmins of Kuldhara and 83 nearby villages fled in the dark. They left behind nothing but barren lands, empty houses and an old temple. While leaving they cursed that no one would be able to inhabit this village ever again. Anyone who has ever tried to spend a night in this village has experienced paranormal activities.

3. Jatinga, Assam
Another one of the absurd mysteries in India is from Assam’s Jatinga village. Every year between the months of September and November, hundreds of birds crash themselves into buildings and trees and just die. While scientists are unable to solve the mystery, villages think it is the act of evil spirits.
4. Kongka La, Ladakh
Situated in the disputed India-China border region, Kongka La is one of the inaccessible regions. Since this is a no man’s land, there are beliefs that it is an operational base for UFOs. Many people have also reported seeing UFOs and both the Indian and Chinese governments are aware of it. Google Maps has also shown the absence of mysterious military facilities in the region.
The Kongka La Pass may not be accessible but here are other breathtaking places to see in Ladakh with our Ladakh Tour Packages.
5. Lonar Crater Lake, Maharashtra
Another one of the results of a bizarre phenomenon is the Lonar Crater Lake in Maharashtra’s Buldhana district. The lake is said to be a result of an extraterrestrial impact crater that later filled with rainwater and became a lake. The mystery of the lake is the fact that the water here is pink. It is because of the biomass of Haloarchaea microbes, which turns the surface of the water red or pink.
Truly, Maharashtra is a land of such natural wonders. You cannot miss them with our Maharashtra Tour Packages.
6. Unakoti, Tripura
One of the mysteries in India based on mythological beliefs is from Unakoti. It is believed that when Lord Shiva was going to Kashi he made a night halt in this place. There were one less than a crore (unakoti) gods and goddesses with him. The place is carved with an equal number of figures dating back to the 7th century. This tourist destination in India is truly worth a visit.
7. Roopkund, Uttarakhand
Located 16500 feet above sea level and known as the ‘Lake of Skeletons’ is yet another unsolved mystery in India. In 1842 a bunch of skeletons were seen floating around the fringes of the lake. Initially, they were believed to be of Japanese soldiers of the 2004 war but later it was found out that the remains dated back to 850 AD. The remains of Roopkund are still a mystery. To date every summer when the ice melts one can see the remains.
