Summer is coming, which means it’s about time to start planning our holidays. Since no one wants to be boring and do the same thing they did last year, you’ll probably need to start gathering some information on great travel locations. While you won’t find any of that here, you’ll at least find a decent handful of places that aren’t the best travel locations at all.
Let’s take a look at some of the most dangerous places on Earth.
Death Valley, USA
It has to get its name somewhere, right? Death Valley, while not dangerous in the typical sense, is so incredibly hot that it can barely sustain life. Temperatures can easily go over 50°C, which isn’t really a temperature in which we’re meant to live.
The Bermuda Triangle
Despite the current rationalizations of the wild stories we’ve all heard about the Bermuda triangle, there still isn’t any reasonable explanation for why so many ships and aircraft have vanished mysteriously in this area.
This area was used for over two decades to mine uranium ore. It’s currently one of the most radioactive sites in the world.
This country is mainly dangerous because it doesn’t have the economic resources to protect itself from things like typhoons and earthquakes. Sadly, most of the cities that are currently at risk for a natural disaster are in the Philippines.
Sure, it might look nice on a picture, but this forest is filled to the brim with things like (deadly) spiders, snakes, sharks and anacondas. They’ve made horror movies about each of those separately, but in this place you can find them all at the same time.
Mount Sinabung, Indonesia
This volcano has been pretty active for the last 200 years, being in pretty much a constant state of eruption or near-eruption. As you can imagine, it’s not the best place to be right now.
Ilha da Queimada Grande, Brazil
If you’re looking for a place with a snake density of one very deadly snake per square meter, do I have the perfect location for you! You’d almost wonder why they call this place “Snake Island”, right? Sadly, you can’t get anywhere near these golden lancehead vipers since the island is off limits to visitors.
This small town in the Midwest has the highest crime rate of the entire US. It’s so bad that statistically speaking, more than 1 inhabitant out of 10 will experience a violent crime.
Skeleton Coast, Namibia
This coastline was known for its insane amount of shipwrecks, but recently it gained a new public. Its waves have a very high appeal to surfers from all around the world, but the coast is still filled with shipwrecks and whale cadavers.
