Who knows maybe some of these mythical locations are actually real and waiting to be discovered

Easyvoyage Logo By Charlie Campbell of Easyvoyage | Slide 1 of 11: Timbuktu is a real-life location in central Mali, on the African continent. But back in the 12th century, this city earned mythical status as people began to associate it with being a distant land of riches and treasures. By the 15th century, Timbuktu was in fact a key location along the trading route linking the Mediterranean and West Africa. Thus legend spread further about this far-away land of vast deserts, golden sand and uncountable riches. Many believed travelling to the much sought after destination would guarantee gold and other riches.

Myths and legends are as common today as they were thousands of years ago. The stories of hidden kingdoms and long-lost lands still incite a lust for explorations in us. Here are 10 mythical locations to spark your curiosity and maybe send you on an adventure of a lifetime!
