Top 5 Scary Places To Visit in the World
Everyone has a fear or phobia that they think would end their life if they came in contact with. Even if you don’t believe in Halloween and the Hungry host festival, there are some places on the earth where you would never agree to spend a night. These are places that have mind-blowing histories and suspicious coincidences. Places you would never go even with a group of your closest friends. Here is a list of the Top 5 Scary Places on Earth.
Scary Places #5 – Taylor Glacier, Antarctica
Taylor Glacier which is also known as Blood Fall, is one of the most phenomenal natural wonders. About five million years ago, this glacier sealed off a microbe-rich lake beneath it. Since the water is isolated from light and oxygen, it became more and more toxic with high levels of salt and iron content. This glacier is three times saltier than normal salty waters.
The blood falling can look like a cool geological crime scene from a distance but it is scary imagining the damage it can cause if contact was made with the human flesh.
Scary Places #4 – North Yungas Road, Bolivia
North Yungas Road is a 60 km cycle path that links the city of La Paz and the Yungas region of Bolivia. It is considered to be a very dangerous and scary due to its steep slopes, a narrow single track, lack of guardrails, rain, and fog. This road weaves intensely through the Amazon rainforest at a height of more than 15,000 feet.
If you have the fear of heights, this is not your path to take. While this path used to claim 200 to 300 lives annually, it has now become a more adventurous destination for bikers.
Scary Places #3 – The Door to Hell, Turkmenistan
Darvaza Gas Crater also known as Door to Hell, is a 230-foot wide crater that never stops burning. It was formed about 40 years ago when scientists were searching for oil and accidentally hit a methane reserve that made the drilling platform collapse. This formed a crater that released dangerous gasses in the air and to stop this from happening, the scientist decided to light the crater on fire to burn off the methane. This, as a result, created an anomaly that has remained lit for the past 40 plus years.
The Turkmen government hopes that this crater will become a tourist attraction despite its scary nature.
#2 – Hanging Coffins, Philippines
As weird as this may sound, there is a tribe that has for ages practiced the tradition of burying their dead in hanging coffins. Members of the Igorot tribe of Mountain Province in Northern Philippines continue this practice to date but at a much smaller scale than before. Many of these cliffside coffins can be dated back to hundreds of years ago and are completely different from each other since they were specially made by the person who now rests inside them.
#1 – Doll Town, Japan
Nagoro is a creepy village where dolls replace the departed. This village also called Doll Town, was created by a lonely woman by the name Tsukimi Ayano eleven years ago. She decided to populate the town with dolls each representing a former resident. Currently, about 350 dolls reside in the village and fewer than 40 breathing humans.
The first doll she made resembled her father and then she came up with dolls that resembled other family members. She then made replicas of her neighbors and placed them strategically such that when walking down the paths, you will find quite unique monuments.
