Chilling destinations: six of the world's most dangerous places (some inaccessible)

Traveling is one of the most popular activities in the world. We are always looking for adventures, exotic and out-of-the-ordinary destinations.

However, some places are so dangerous that they could endanger the lives of visitors and therefore may be banned from entering. In this article, we will explore six of the most dangerous places in the world that require special care and caution when visiting (should it be allowed). These include active volcanoes that could erupt at any time, places characterized by extreme temperatures, and highly toxic environments.

Each destination presents a unique challenge, but one thing is certain: these are not places to be taken lightly.

Atoll of Bikini
The atoll of Bikini in the Pacific Ocean was used as a nuclear range by the United States, with sixty-seven nuclear tests conducted between 1946 and 1958. The radioactivity on the island is still dangerous to human health today, preventing its permanent settlement. The original inhabitants of the atoll suffered serious health damage and continue to fight for compensation from the damage caused by the nuclear tests.

Island of Queimada Grande
The island of Queimada Grande, Brazil, is the only habitat of the venomous snake Bothrops insularis, with a density of between 2,000 and 4,000 specimens on only 430,000 square meters. The access to the island is restricted to research purposes only because of the risk posed by venomous snakes. The island has been nicknamed "snake island" because of its high danger.

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park
Hawaii is home to Volcanoes National Park, one of the few places in the world where you can get close to active volcanoes such as Mt. Kilauea and Mauna Loa. However, the area has been associated with many casualties and deaths due to lava haze, flying rocks and boiling ocean water. Boat tours through red-hot lava rivers obviously present a high risk to tourists, requiring extreme caution and care.
