Sometimes we require more than just a pinch when travelling to new and bizarre places. Certain natural wonders and underdeveloped places can make you feel like you’re on another planet! Here are six surreal places in North Carolina:

You may feel like you’re walking through a fairy tale on this lush trail to see the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Experience the surreal surroundings miners once worked in to collect gold. Built in 1799, the Reed was actually the first documented commercial gold mine in the nation.
Although much of the Outer Banks is well developed and a beloved tourist destination, parts of OBX can make you feel like you’ve stepped foot on a new planet! Especially areas inhibited by wild native ponies.
These glowing specks at seas may appear alien-like but are actually millions of zooplankton and marine algae undergoing a chemical reaction in the salt water.
Masonboro Island is a barrier island found just off the coast of Wrightsville Beach. It is a nature reserve that is only accessible by boat and is entirely undeveloped. You’re sure to feel isolated being on this island alone!
