About 500 miles away from Sin City is a humanmade wonder that should be on everyone's must-see list. This psychedelic geyser in Nevada is a sight for sore eyes and looks like aliens made it. You'll have to see it to believe it. 

Fly Geyser is one of three thermal springs on the Fly Ranch Burning Man Project. The ranch is comprised of 3,800 acres of land in Gerlach and features wetlands, grasslands, and spring water pools. 

One wonder on the land that seriously looks out of this world is a multi-colored geyser "that constantly releases water reaching five feet in the air, depositing minerals and enabling the growth of multi-colored algae on the terraces surrounding it."

Starting April 3, you and your friends can see it for yourself during a nature walk tour. Specific walk dates are still in the works, but you can check their website for 2020 dates when they become available. 

The free three-hour walks are entirely immersive and will teach you the importance of "how people think of and interact with the land."

Since these tours are donation-based, you'll be charged a deposit to reserve your space. From there, you can decide whether your deposit is taken as a donation or if you want it all back. 

You'll have to make a reservation ahead of time here if you want to learn and explore the area, although the option isn't available yet. Walk-ins are not permitted since the geyser is on private property.

Since the tour is all about learning the cool history, guides require you put all cell phones and cameras away until you reach the end of your walk.

Before you begin on your 1.5-mile trek through Fly Ranch, you and others apart of your group will meet at the host's visitor center: Friends of Black Rock-High Rock's Visitor Center.

It's located at 320 Main Street. From there, you will carpool to the estate.  

We recommend wearing long pants and close-toed shoes since these tours occur rain or shine. 

If you're looking for a unique activity to do with your friends, this might be it. There are so many other hidden gems like this pastel pink canyon that's only a short drive from Vegas. 

Whether you're in search of an out-of-the-ordinary experience or want to learn some interesting facts about nature, this spot will give you the best of both worlds.
