Dangerous places in the world

Continue reading after the advertisement...

  1. Verkhoyansk, Russia: Verkhoyansk is one of the coldest place on earth. it is located at Siberia in Russia. It’s distance from Moscow (The Capital) is 3000 miles in the east. Winter temperatures there typically fall between minus 60 and minus 40 degrees Fahrenheit. The low, recorded in the late 19th century, was minus 90. The city is also calledCold-Pole. It is one of the most dangerous place on the earth to live.
2. lha da Queimada Grande (Snake island), Brazil: This island is widely recognized as the most dangerous place on the planet. This place is full of one of the most venomous snakes in the world, Bothrops. Researchers estimate that about five snakes per square meter live on the island. Braziliangovernment has prohibited any visitors from setting foot there.
3. Mount Merapi, Indonesia: Even during its most tranquil periods, Mount Merapi, on the island of Java, smolders. Smoke ominously floats from its mouth, 10,000 feetin the sky. "Fire Mountain," as its name translates to English, has erupted about 60 times in the past five centuries, most recently in 2006. Before that, a 1994 eruption sent forth a lethal cloud of scalding hot gas, which burned 60 people to death. In 1930, more than 1000 people died when Merapispewed lava over 8 square miles around its base, the high death toll being the result of too many people living too close.
4. Lake Kivu, Congo/Rwanda: Renowned as one of the great lakes of Africa, Lake Kivu is located along the border between Congo andRwanda. But deep below its surface, the lake houses over 2.3 trillion cubic feet of methane gas and 60 cubic miles of carbon dioxide, which, if released, can spark a methane explosion, incite lake tsunamis and kill the two million residents that call the basin home. Trying to think positive? The gas will likely be released only if volcanic activity occurs below the lake.
5. Dallol, Ethiopia: If Verkhoyansk is the coldest city in the world, then Dallol, Ethiopia is the antithesis. Located five hours outside of Ethiopia’s center in the Danakil Desert, Dallol is known by locals as “the Gateway to Hell”. It’s an apt title for thehottest inhabited place on Earth, where temperatures in summer reach up to 148 degrees Fahrenheit. Average temperatures hover around 94 degrees Fahrenheit.
6. Madidi National Park, Bolivia: At first sight, this place looks very picturesque, but it’s actually very dangerous. Why? Because it’s home to the most poisonous and aggressive flora in the world: contact with any of the plants growing in this park can cause severe itching, rash and dizziness. Any cut, or even a small wound, can become infected with tropical parasites.
7. Sinabung Volcano, Indonasia: This is an active volcano situated on the Indonesian island of Sumatra. Eruptions occur here very frequently, often leaving thousands of people without shelter or livelihood. The nearby towns and villages have been completely covered in lava and ash several times already: in 2010, 2013, 2014 and 2015. The latest explosion occurred February 27, 2016. That eruption ejected a deadly cloud of volcanic gas, stones, and ash to a height of 2,500 meters. And no one knows what will happen there tomorrow.
8. Ramree Island, Myanmar: The island is separated from the mainland by a narrow canal-like strait, which is only 150 metres(490 ft) wide in average. There is a bridge over the strait connecting the island with the continental shore. The highest point is Zikha Taung, a 305 metres (1,001 ft) high hill located near the western shore in the southern part of the island.
In the annals of our World Wars, there have been many atrocities committed by our kind against each other. The South Pacific duringWorld War II holds a special distinction for being an especially brutal and savage killing ground the likes of which humankind has never seen before or since. Yet one of the bloodiest and most horrifying massacres in the history of the war came not from the hands human beings, but from the jaws and teeth of the animal kingdom.
