Originating from James Hilton’s novel called ‘Lost Horizon’, Shangri-La is yet another mythical place which emerged in 1933. This place is about a mystical valley in Tibet, found in the shadow of a huge mountain. This mythical place became increasingly popular as it was a place where modernity was banned, and humans enjoyed only natural beauty. It was also described as the place where all the good things of life were kept hidden. But, as per documentations, the original idea of that place, dated from the 16th century!

And the most mythical civilization of all times is Atlantis! Described in the first place by Plato, Atlantis is seen as a sunken continent which has been submerged by the waters. It is mostly known as a rivalling threat to Athens, in terms of cultures and wisdom. Until now, the exact location of Atlantis has never been discovered, but it was believed to be in Atlantic. The waters have been searched by experts few times, but never did they find that mythical sunken palace. In the last years, one expert claimed to have found Atlantis in the Southern China Sea, but the claim has never been verified. Anyway, even if this place is discovered in the future, it is likely to be an ancient tribe, which was once lost when the water rose. It is less probable to find the wonders like Plato described!
