Traveling around the world, you can see everything you want to see. But there are places on the planet that are not accessible to everyone. Because visiting them is dangerous to your health and you might even lose your freedom.
What places on the planet are forbidden to enter for anyone? Here is a rating of the top 10 most famous.
North Sentinel Island
This island is inhabited by aborigines who are against any contact with civilization. They have spent more than 60,000 years in isolation on this island.
The natives are fiercely protective of their territory and will kill anyone who trespasses on it. Their victims are lost fishermen. The Indian authorities under whose control this island is, urge you to stay away from this place.
In 1963 there was a violent volcanic eruption in Iceland, which lasted for three whole years and led to the formation of an island. The Icelandic government decided to make the island a scientific experiment.
Scientists are watching to see how new life can form without human involvement. Only a certain circle of people can enter this island.
Before each visit, they are carefully checked to make sure that no plant seeds have been brought to the island. The first plant on the island was the moss.
This is probably the kind of island that no one would want to go to. Its size is only two square kilometers. It is one of the seven most dangerous islands on the planet.
And all because it became the center of experiments with biological weapons. They started dropping anthrax bombs on the island. After that, a group of sheep was brought there and divided into several parts. In a few days all the flock died.
The British government concluded that such bombs would contaminate Germany for several decades, but the weapon could not be used. After the war ended, the rightful owners of this island demanded it back, but the island was heavily polluted, so entry was forbidden. This island would have remained the most dangerous if not for the locals.
They demanded that the island be decontaminated. A huge amount of soil was removed, formaldehyde was sprayed, and only in 1990 was the quarantine lifted. But no one would guarantee complete decontamination.
This ghost island is located only two kilometers from Venice. Once there were people here, but after the war with the Genoese, the island was deserted.
After the bubonic plague came to Europe, which killed the population for centuries. All the dead and infected were brought to the island, which turned into a punishment cell.
After the end of the epidemic, they tried to repopulate it, but the notoriety of this place reached every resident of Italy. In 1922, a psychiatric hospital was opened there.
There are legends that the head doctor conducted experiments on the patients, and the patients saw ghosts and suffered from headaches. Nowadays, this island is avoided by everyone and no one will agree to take you there.
This room is located in North Korea. According to some reports, torture often took place in this room, and it was worse than what we are used to seeing in militant films.
It is also where spies are recruited, documents and money are forged, drugs are produced and many other terrible things. The North Korean government is aware of all these things, so entry into this room is strictly forbidden.
This place is located just north of Las Vegas. It is still unknown what is going on there. Many believe that aliens are there, others think that secret weapons are being developed there.
The American government claims that new aircraft are being developed there. Whatever it is, but it is impossible for ordinary people to get there. The area is fenced with several fences and carefully guarded.
Scientists are seriously concerned about the warming of the earth’s climate, the destruction of the ozone layer, the development of weapons of mass destruction and biological weapons. To prevent mankind from becoming extinct on our planet, hundreds of bunkers have already been built, as well as a global seed storage facility. It is located on the island of West Spitsbergen (Norway).
This storage facility stores all kinds of seeds that exist on Earth. It was created in case mankind runs out of food after a catastrophe or war. This facility is restricted and heavily guarded. To be fair: you can get there if you want, but you need a special permit to do so.
Pine Gap Military Base
This military research base is placed practically in the heart of Australia and it belongs to America. What are they researching there? It is not clear. Access there is strictly forbidden for ordinary people, even the airspace is closed.
Keimada Grandi Island
This island is located 35 kilometers off the coast of Brazil. It looks quite picturesque in the photos, but the trip there can cost your life.
That’s because the island is teeming with poisonous snakes. There are more than 4,000 species of snakes, the bites of which can cause instant tissue necrosis. Therefore, the Brazilian authorities have banned visitors to the island.
This place is located in Virginia and serves as a shelter for the American government and all high-ranking officials in case of any threat. This base is also used for federal radio communications. Only the top officials and their entourage have access to territory.
