Some places on earth are deadly and inhabitable but still people lives in there. Here are some of them!
#1 Danakil Desert, Ethiopia
There’s a desert in northeastern Ethiopia and southern Eritrea, that stretches 100,000 square kilometers as far as the human eye can visualize. The fringes of Danakil desert are home to the Afrar people who relies heavily on the forest for their livelihood. The temperature conditions are worst but the afrar people continues to trek the desert terrain on their camel in 145 degree Celsius. It is filled with sand, salt, heat and volcanic activities. The landscape is ruled by hot sulphorous springs, active lava beds, and salt lakes.
Despite this harsh climatic conditions Afrar people stays in their and earns money by mining slabs of salts. This people then again travels miles and reaches the nearest city to offload their precious cargo. If you are a travel freak and want to check out this place ,you will need a security force to get you there and bring you back in one piece. A case of attack was deduced from the place when in 2012 a group of tourists were attacked by the rebels on their visit to Erta Ale Volcano in the Danakil Depression killing five people, wounding seven and abducting four.
#2 Valley of death- Russia
Here we are talking about the valley of death in Russia and not US. This valley is dangerous for it’s own reasons altogether. This is located in Kamchatka Peninsula. Along the Geyser river and standing in the shadow of Kronotsky volcano the valley of geysers is the spectacular sight. The area is essentially Russian version of Yellowstone National Park. It is a very vast valley . For many years it is only a site for scientists and Russian park rangers, no one else was allowed. But recently in 2011 government started allowing tourists excursions to enjoy the rare glimpse of this marvelous sight and also the dangerous region- the valley of death.
It was discovered in 1975 and occupies a smaller area within the valley of geysers. It extends only 2 kilometers and 100-500 meters wide. It has got it’s name because of the toxic gases that’s clinging to the valley floors and that of hundreds of animals that have died there out of those fumes. Due to volcanic eruptions the floor is always flooded with hydrogen sulphide, carbon dioxide, carbon sulphide and even cyanide. The animals died there are well preserved because of the fumes that inhibits the growth of bacteria. Therefore yes if you think u can your this area, then you can until u hold a practice of holding breath or breathing with an air tank. If you start to feel dizzy or weak, come out of that place, else become the latest victim of the valley of death!!
#3 Mount Sinabung, Indonesia
One of the island of Sumatra in Indonesia. The long slept giant had woken up and is not very much happy about it. After lying dormant for about 400 years, suddenly mount sinabung have been active when it erupted in August 2010. A nap break followed but then again in September 2013 it erupted. Still then it has become a kicking on terror for the resident areas.
Ten of thousands people live near the volcano and each eruption has caused evacuation or displacements. Their homes are usually covered with ash and mud when they go back to their homes after eruptions. Because of this constant cycle of evacuation and eruptions the economy of the place is affected adversely. Crops and animal farming everything seems to be impossible in that place.
On 1st February, 2014 sinabung exploded in its most deadliest forms killing 16 people.
Another eruption in September 2016,claimed additional 7 lives.
Therefore without Indonesian governments “clear” announcements no residents should go back to the area.
#4 Iha da Queimada( snake island) , Brazil.
It will never be definitely your first vacation spot to go and visit. It was a part of the Brazilian mainland until rising sea separated it 11,000 years ago. The extremely venomous and critically dangerous golden Lanceheads have flourished on snake island with one snake per square meter. That means each step you take you’ll encounter snakes everywhere. The fer-de-lance ,cousin of the golden lanceheads is responsible for the most deadliest snake bite deaths in central and South America. The hemotoxic venom of this snake family causes your cells and tissues to literally melt and die. Brazil government definitely takes the snake island threat seriously. The lighthouse was erected in 1909 to warn boaters away from the island. After the death of lighthouse keeper and his family Brazilian navy keeps the place off. Wildlife poachers and treasure hunters surf this place for medical purpose.
#5 Gouffre Berger Cave, France.
In France this was once considered as the deepest in the world ,more than 3,000 feet deep. The entrance requires ropes, and rigging to traverse down. Gouffre Berger is susceptible to heavy rainfall which can turn this as a death trap. Anyone in the cave when water levels rising is at risk of death. In last decade or so six people have died in the cave. Unless you are experienced climber and caver it is highly recommended to stay away from the cave.
#6 Cave of the crystals, Mexico.
It is beautiful but potentially dangerous. It was discovered by miners working in chihuahua, Mexico,is always filled with water. The cave chambers are packed with gigantic salenite crystals, as large as 36 feet long and 55 tons weighing. The anomalous temperature inside the cave is enough to kill you. Humans can exists only 10 minutes inside the cave without any special equipment.
#7 Nevada National security site, USA.
This is the most inhabitable places in the US. This stretch of Nevada desert just 65 miles away from Las Vegas is where US has done the most of its nuclear testing. Over the course of 4 decades nearly 900 detonation tests are carried on. If you visit this place and don’t die immediately of the radiation around then definitely you will develop a case of leukemia.
