With today’s transportation, it’s never been more easier to travel around the globe. You would think more places would be free to the public, with locations been more and more easy to get to. From breathtaking beaches, rain forests and hot deserts. There are certain places people are not allowed or where access is limited
10. Lascaux Caves
Setting of a complex of caves near the village of Montignac in southwestern France. Interior walls and ceilings of the cave contains over 600 parietal wall paintings. The drawings are the combined effort of many generations, and with continued debate, the paintings are estimated around 17,000 years. The paintings are primarily of typical local and contemporary fauna that correspond with the fossil record of the Upper Paleolithic time as well as large animals.
9. Surtsey Island
Surtsey is Iceland’s youngest volcanic island. One of the most filmed and researched islands, and also, one of the most restricted. One of the most difficult places to reach in the world. It’s birth took almost four years as eruption followed eruption until 1967, by which time the island stood 150 m (492 ft) above sea level and covered an area of almost 3 square kilometres (2 square miles). Despite the considerable amount of early erosion caused by the pounding seas, the island core quickly solidified as rock and it now holds its own, under close scientific observation.
8. Snake Island
Treacherous island teeming with thousands of deadly vipers. The island is partly covered in rainforest and partly bare rock and grassy cleared areas, a result of deforestation. When rising sea levels covered up the land that connected it to the mainland. This left the snakes to adapt to their environment, increase rapidly in population and render the island dangerous to public visitation. Because there are so many snakes on one island, by some estimates one snake to every square meter of the island, there is competition for resources. Snake Island is closed to the public just to protect its snake population (not to protect the people).
7. North Sentinel Island
Sentinelese – People living there completely cut-off from global civilization. They don’t welcome any kind of contact from the outside world. The Sentinelese are thought to be direct descendants of the first humans who emerged from Africa. They have lived on the tiny island for almost 60,000 years. Their exact population is unknown; it could be as low as 40-50 or as high as 500.
No matter if you come as friend or enemy, or you arrive at the island shores on purpose or by accident, the locals will greet you the same way, as we see on the movies nowadays – with spears and arrows. No need for gifts of food or clothing – those stuff doesn’t have any meaning to them. They were even hostile to rescue missions after the tsunami in 2004. Their language is alien and their habits unknown. Their settlements are hidden in the thick jungle, so we have no clue about how they live. All we know is that the Sentinelese are hunter-gatherers; they do not farm. They live on fish, fruits, wild pigs, tubers, lizards and honey.
There are several horrifying stories of how the Sentinelese have treated their guests. People either return from the island terrified and injured, or not at all.
6. Area 51
Do you bellieve aliens really visited us? What happend with them then? Just leave? Or maybe they stayed somewhere on the Earth. A lot of conspiracy theorists believe that the remains of crashed UFO spacecrafts are actually stored at Area 51, an Air Force base about 150 miles from Las Vegas, where government scientists reverse-engineer the aliens’ highly advanced technology.
The government has developed advanced aircraft and weapons systems at nearby Nellis Air Force Base, including Stealth bombers and reconnaissance planes. Because of the fact that details of Area 51 are classified for purposes of national security, that could be proof that the military is hiding aliens or alien spacecraft.
5. Moscow Metro-2
We are not suprised by the fact that Soviets planned ahead for a possible nuclear catastrophe. Metro-2 in Moscow, Russia, is a secret metro system that parallels the public Moscow Metro, but is larger, exceeding that of the normal metro system. Also, it is located deeply underground at 50 to 200 meters deep with only 4 lines.
The secret metro lines connect key government buildings (such as the Kremlin with the FSB headquarters, the government airport at Vnukovo-2, an underground town at Ramenki), and other locations of national importance, and house ample living space for politicians and their families. So, now all you have to do is find the entrance to the tunnels on your next trip to Moscow.
Built during the halcyon Stalin days, there has been much speculation in the last 2 decades as to the existence of Metro-2, but reports from Russian journalists and many high government officials, as well as metro authorities have essentially lain all doubt to rest, not to mention that the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation (FSB) or the Moscow Metro administration neither confirm nor deny its existence.
4. Mount Weather
This place is United States military underground bunker and missile silo launch facility located in the Blue Ridge Mountains in the eastern United States of America on Earth. Similar to the Metro-2 in Moscow, It was constructed to house senior US officials in the event of a nuclear war.
The Mountain Men are descendants of the original people who took shelter there during the Nuclear Apocalypse. During Season One, it was the intended dropping point for the 100, but they were unable to travel there as the territory belonged to the Woods Clan. Mount Weather is currently inactive due to a self-destruct sequence initiated by Carl Emerson and the Ice Nation.
3. Svalbard Global Seed Vault
It was designed as an impregnable deep-freeze to protect the world’s most precious seeds from any global disaster and ensure humanity’s food supply forever. But the Global Seed Vault, buried in a mountain deep inside the Arctic circle, has been breached after global warming produced extraordinary temperatures over the winter, sending meltwater gushing into the entrance tunnel.
“A lot of water went into the start of the tunnel and then it froze to ice, so it was like a glacier when you went in,” she told the Guardian. Fortunately, the meltwater did not reach the vault itself, the ice has been hacked out, and the precious seeds remain safe for now at the required storage temperature of -18C.
But the breach has questioned the ability of the vault to survive as a lifeline for humanity if catastrophe strikes. “It was supposed to [operate] without the help of humans, but now we are watching the seed vault 24 hours a day,” Aschim said. “We must see what we can do to minimise all the risks and make sure the seed bank can take care of itself.”
2. Heard Island Volcano
Big Ben on the sub-Antarctic Heard Island is the highest mountain on Australian territory. It has erupted at least three times in the past 15 years. The neighbouring McDonald Islands are also home to an active volcano.
1. Veglia, Italy
The last one is so scary, so we couldn’t describe it. You better watch the video below.
Are you maybe going to visit some of those places? What’s the scariest?
Scare a friend. Scaring is caring.
