5 most dangerous places on earth (see photos)

1. Bermuda triangle

The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil's Triangle or Hurricane Alley , is a loosely defined region in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean where a number of aircraft and ships are said to have disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Most reputable sources dismiss the idea that there is any mystery.

Also known as the Devil’s Triangle or Hurricane Alley, this area of the Atlantic Ocean has been credited for causing a mass disappearances and a number of wrecks over the years. While people love to throw around conspiracy theories about each of these Bermuda Triangle stories, there may be perfectly logical explanations for all of them.

According to Encyclopedia Britannica, there’s no telling how many ships or planes that have “disappeared” in the Bermuda Triangle, but some estimates guess around 50 ships and 20 aircraft have gone missing there.

2. Death valley USA

Death Valley is a desert valley in Eastern California, in the northern Mojave Desert, bordering the Great Basin Desert. It is one of the hottest places on Earth, along with deserts in the Middle East and the Sahara.

Death valley was given its forbidding name by a group of pioneers lost here in the winter of 1849-1850. Even though, as far as we know, only one of the group died here, they all assumed that this valley would be their grave.

3. Snake Island (BRAZIL)

Ilha da Queimada Grande, also known as Snake Island, is an island off the coast of Brazil in the Atlantic Ocean. 

The mysterious island is known as Ilha da Queimada Grande, and it is in fact so dangerous to set foot there that Brazil has made it illegal for anyone to visit. The danger on the island comes in the form of the golden lancehead snakes – a species of pit viper and one of the deadliest serpents in the world.

4. Elephant Kingdom, Thailand

In Elephant Kingdom, Thailand, at a Crocodile farm, the owner leases out a small semi-closed raft space for tourists to come visit, see and FEED crocodiles! The raft is a thin wooden one balanced on plastic barrels and has net enclosure half way around it. 

The Elephant kingdom Park in Chonburi, Thailand was locally famous for one particularly dangerous, but thrilling, attraction: feeding live crocodiles. Tourists would go out on the crocodile-infested waters in a makeshift raft, and dangle bits of meat over the side to get a rise out the hungry creatures.

5. Gate of hell

The gates of hell are various places on the surface of the world that have acquired a legendary reputation for being entrances to the underworld. 

The origin of the fire still remains a mystery but, according to some reports, the flames have been burning since 1971. A group of Soviet geologists accidentally created the crater, searching for oil, according to the Smithsonian Magazine.
