The 9 most dangerous places on the planet

These places are really dangerous. 

Mount Washington, USA

The top of Mount Washington is the place where the strongest winds blow on the planet. The maximum speed recorded there is 327 km / h. And if you add the temperature to 40 ° C below freezing and the snowy constants, the conditions turn out to be quite harsh. Although the height of this mountain is only 1917 meters, a person at the top of this mountain experiences the same sensations as a mountain climber on the summit of Everest.

Afar Depression, Ethiopia

The Erta Ale volcano, in the Afar region of Ethiopia, is one of the most dangerous volcanoes on the planet. Small earthquakes constantly shake this region forming numerous deep pockets. This happens because there are two lava lakes in the crater of the volcano, where the level of lava constantly changes causing earthquakes.

Death Valley, Kamchatka, Russia

In Russia there is also a Death Valley in Kamchatka. It is located next to the famous Valley of the Geysers. In this territory there is a high concentration of poisonous gases, everything alive in this area is under great danger: plants and animals die, and humans begin to feel ill immediately, give them fever, feel dizzy and shivering

Lake Natron, Tanzania

It may look like a landscape out of this world, but this surreal photo is actually a photo of Lake Natron in Tanzania. The levels of salts and alkali in the lake are so high that any living creature is exposed to great danger only by coming into contact with water. For obvious reasons, it is strictly forbidden to bathe in this lake, but even if you wish to admire it from a safe distance you can do so only for a short time because the strong smell of hydrogen sulfide that emanates from your interior will scare you away.

Death Valley, United States

If Earth is our home, Death Valley is definitely its extremely hot oven. This impressive desert is the warmest place on the planet with the highest recorded temperature of 56.7 ° C. Even the toughest person in the world in these conditions runs out fast. A human being without water alone could live there for 14 hours.

Bikini Atoll, Marshall Islands

At first glance, a paradise island lost in the ocean, right? It used to be Bikini until the United States began to test nuclear weapons in its territory having evacuated all its inhabitants. The tests are over but the island will never be the same again: there is a very high level of radiation in your territory, and it is not recommended to spend much time there, since there is a risk of developing cancer.

Desert of Danakil, Eritrea

Boiling sulfuric acid and gases, scorching heat and lava in action; Is not a brief description of hell, but the Danakil desert in Eritrea. Active volcanoes are everywhere, the thermometer rises to 50 degrees, while toxic gases emit from the depths of the Earth. It is a chilling place but its alien beauty attracts many travelers. If you suddenly decide to see Danakil with your own eyes, do not even think about going there without an experienced guide.

Volcano Sinabung, Indonesia

It is an active volcano on Sumatra Island in Indonesia. The eruptions happen here with a catastrophic frequency leaving thousands of people from nearby towns homeless. Lava filled the surroundings in 2010, 2013, 2014 and 2015. The last eruption was on February 27, 2016: gases, lava and ashes were expelled at a height of 2500 meters. The volcano began to destroy itself of so much activity. We can only guess what awaits this area later.

Isla de la Quemada Grande (Isla de las Cobras), Brazil

This island located near the coasts of Brazil is considered the most dangerous island on the planet. And all because this island is inhabited by the most venomous snakes in the world, bothrops. The density of the “population” of snakes on the island is 5 snakes per square meter. Long ago the watchmen of the bluff used to live here, but they all died after being attacked by vipers. Since then the lantern works automatically and the Brazilian authorities forbade tourists to approach this dangerous place.
