OUR EARTH have a lot of tourist destinations with beautiful and amazing scenery. However, behind its beauty, it turns out that there are also those that can endanger human safety. In certain places such as the most dangerous tourist attractions in the world, tourists are required to comply with various rules that are applied if they still want to visit them.
In several places in the world, there are also places that were originally used as tourist destinations with beautiful landscapes and are now strictly forbidden to visit. If previously tourists could visit them freely, now they need special access to be able to visit these places.
Here are some of the most dangerous tourist attractions in the world that should not be freely visited by humans, summarized by Rotation Asia, Wednesday (9/2/2022) from various sources:
The island is about 149 kilometers from Sao Paulo, Brazil and is considered the most dangerous tourist spot on earth. This place is called the island of snakes because it is true to its name.
Almost every inch of land on this island there are snakes. So that no human being is allowed to inhabit this island other than the very venomous and deadly snakes in the world.
Although it is very dangerous, there are tourists who are curious and want to keep visiting or want to research this place. If you are still desperate to set foot there, tourists must get special permission from the local government and must bear their own risk.
The main attraction of this island is the golden lancehead snake. This highly venomous and deadly snake crawls all over its land. When arriving at this island, visitors will be greeted by thousands of venomous snakes who are ready to ‘acquaint’ along its coastline.
Mount Sinabung is located in the province of North Sumatra, Indonesia and has become one of the most dangerous tourist attractions in the world since 2010. After 400 years of silence, the Sinabung volcano has re-awakened and spewed various materials such as volcanic ash, rocks, cold lava and hot gases onto the ground.
Previously this place was a favorite destination for nature lovers, especially mountain climbers. However, since its first eruption this mountain has killed more than 15 people and injured hundreds.
Mount Sinabung is the only volcano with a level 4 or longest alert status and is completely off limits to visitors or climbers until 2022. In 2019 its follow-up eruption has caused chaos in the local village.
Video footage circulating shows how the volcanic ash from the vomit shoots 23,000 feet into the air and coats everything around it. Hopefully the eruption of Mount Sinabung will stop soon and can again become the main destination for nature lovers or mountaineers.
Until now the mystery that happened in the Bermuda Triangle is still unsolved. This place is so mysterious that it is even dubbed the Devil’s Triangle. Starting from ships, planes, to humans mysteriously disappeared in this place.
On some planes that disappear at this location often face no signs first and suddenly lose contact with the control tower just like that. While on ships, giant waves often appear that swallow them until they sink.
The height of the ocean waves in the Bermuda Triangle can reach up to a hundred feet destroying everything that crosses it. Until now the cause or reason why so many lives were lost in this place is still a mystery.
Even so, there are still those who dare to visit this place. In addition to researchers, psychics also often visit him to reveal what really happened in the Bermuda Triangle.
Natron Lake in Tanzania is one of the scariest places on earth. Where all living things that dared to approach him were instantly turned into stone or statues. This lake contains super dangerous chemicals and the temperature is very high.
The sparkling water that is shiny like glass often tricks flocks of birds or other living creatures into perching into the water, and then becomes a victim of its ferocity. When the lake water recedes, you will see birds drying up and turning into statues.
Death Valley or the valley of death is located in California. Death Valley is a very apt name for this desert in California because of its drastically changing temperatures. Temperatures in the Valley of Death vary from 56 degrees Celsius at dawn to minus 23 degrees Celsius at night.
The Valley of Death is the lowest point in North America at 282 feet below sea level and has no water. The valley of death became a place that could kill humans easily in a short time.
Even so, this desert has something interesting and steals the attention of curious tourists, namely the rocks that can move across the expanse of the desert.
The Danakil Desert is located in Eritrea, a country in East Africa. This place is dubbed as one of the hells on earth and is the most inhospitable place for humans. This nickname likens how dangerous a place is.
The average temperature in this desert throughout the year is 35 degrees Celsius. This desert is one of the hottest scorching places on earth.
Madidi National Park
Madiadi National Park is located in Bolivia. If you see directly this tourist park is very beautiful like coming from a fairy tale. But this beautiful garden is very dangerous in real life. This national park is home to the most poisonous and venomous fauna in the world.
Wounds caused by the animals in this park can be infectious because they contain tropical parasites that cause dizziness and even death. Although dangerous, this place does not stop the intention of the tourists to visit it. Usually they don’t stay here for long.
Madidi Park is filled with surprises and wonders containing over 1,100 different species of animals and birds. It should always be remembered that this beautiful and green park hosts some of the most poisonous fauna and contains the most deadly parasites in the world. Parasites usually enter the human body through wounds and attack the immune system and cause sudden death.
Ijen Crater is in Indonesia and is the most dangerous tourist spot in the world but with a very beautiful view with a stunning and charming blue lake in its crater. This lake is like a river that emits light, but in reality the water in Ijen Crater is very toxic.
Ijen Crater is located at the top of the volcano. At night, blue flames resembling electrical sparks can be seen rolling down the side of the lake which is absolutely stunning. The crater is filled with hydrochloric acid which is more corrosive than battery acid. Hydrogen chloride gas spewed from the volcano collides with gas containing sulfur and creates a strong chemical that is highly corrosive.
Although these volcanoes and craters are clearly dangerous and deadly to humans, sulfur miners are still risking their lives here. Of course, the local workers here always use extra safety precautions such as nose covers and gagging their mouths with wet cloths to prevent the sulfuric gases from entering and damaging their teeth. Sometimes the sulfur gas will still leak and damage their front teeth.
Washington New Hampshire Mount
It is widely known that Mount Everest is the highest and most dangerous mountain in the world. While Mount Washington is New Hampshire, it is much lower than the height of Everest but becomes a mountain that provides more nightmares for climbers who are desperate to explore it.
This mountain is located in the United States and what makes it so dangerous is not the height, but the weather conditions and wind speed. In April 1934, it was recorded that this mountain had been hit by winds with a speed of 231 miles per hour or about 371 kilometers per hour.
Meanwhile, the average wind speed is 60 miles per hour or 96 kilometers per hour that leads from the foot of the mountain to its peak. It is almost impossible for the explorers here not to be attacked by hypothermia because the freezing temperature on this mountain can reach minus 17 degrees Celsius.
