Travel has become an important part of our lives now. We have slowly started understanding the importance of travel and have started taking it seriously. It has become mandatory for us to take a break. But remember to never book your tickets to these particular destinations as they are super dangerous and scary!
The Danakil Desert, Eritrea
Extremely hot weather where temperatures often top 120 degrees F (50 degrees C), numerous active volcanoes, geysers that spit toxic gases etc make this place super unstable. It's hard to imagine a more brutal landscape than Africa's Danakil Desert to be honest.
Sinabung Volcano, Indonesia
This is an active volcano situated on the Indonesian island of Sumatra. This place often makes it into global news channels for its urgent evacuations of thousands of people very frequently thanks to this volcano. The nearby towns and villages have been completely covered in lava and ash several times already: in 2010, 2013, 2014 and 2015 to be precise!
Madidi National Park, Bolivia
Another super dangerous place to visit is Madidi National Park in Bolivia. This is beautiful, no doubt but having said that, the flora out here is one of the most dangerous! In fact, contact with any of the plants growing in this park can cause severe itching, rash and dizziness. A single cut, or even a small wound, can become infected with tropical parasites.
Death Valley, USA
If the Earth is our home, then Death Valley is its scorching hot oven. It is known for its extremely high temperatures. This stunning desert holds the record for the highest temperature ever recorded on our planet — 134 °F (56.7 °C). This place is known to exhaust humans in no time!
Mount Washington, USA
Let's switch gears and take a complete turn. We spoke about super hot, time to speak about super cold now. The summit of Mount Washington holds the world record for the fastest winds on the surface of the Earth. The highest recorded speed here is 203 miles per hour (327 km/h). Pair this up with temperatures as low as -40 degrees and you get a super dangerous environment!
lha da Queimada Grande (Snake Island), Brazil
This island is famous for having super venomous snakes all over. Researchers estimate that about five snakes per square meter live on the island. There are several stories of people succumbing to the deadly predators in no time at all. So, never ever have this place on your list of must visit places!Also read: 8 Tourist Destinations That Are Not What You Think They Are...
Bikini Atoll, The Marshall Islands
It looks so pretty, right? So what is the problem? So the sad reality is that it was home to numerous nuclear testing programs that turned the picturesque island of Bikini into a radioactive wasteland. Even today, it is super dangerous.
Elephant Kingdom in Chonburi, Thailand
In Elephant Kingdom, Thailand, at a Crocodile farm, the owner leases out a small semi-closed raft space for tourists to come visit, see and FEED crocodiles! Now the dangerous bit here is the raft. It is a thin wooden raft which primarily balances on plastic barrels. Just pray to god that you don't fall in the water while feeding crocodiles!
Afar Depression, Ethiopia
This one right here is one of the most dangerous Volcanoes out there. Small earthquakes are constantly shaking the region, forming numerous deep chasms. This happens because Erta Ale contains two lava lakes in its summit crater. Things can get extremely unstable in no time and it is very dangerous here!
