Now surely you won’t fancy a fishing trip to the Bermuda Triangle or go skinny dipping in Amazon’s waters, but there are ample locations where your heart would skip a beat, quite literally. These are places with dangerous lures that should be out of the tourists radar. They carry significant risk to scare every ounce of the traveler in you. I recommend these only for the lion-hearted travelers.
1. The Amazon Rain Forest
You might not see them, but they are always on a watch. From creepy crawlers to big nasty cats, the Amazon jungle is teeming with wildlife that make your trip truly ‘wild’. Nevertheless, an expedition in this great South American basin is something you will relish forever.
Besides ancient mummies that come to life, Egypt is a dangerous tourist destination because of political unrest. The street protest and skirmishes makes the Land of Pharaohs a high risks destination.
3. Colima, Mexico
The beach of Manzanilo has all that you desire. From snorkeling to golf; the location symbolizes the stereotypical Mexican beauty. However, boiling within a deep dark crater is Volcan de Colima. Erupted last in 2008, this volcano is part of the Pacific Ring and holds the potential to be the next Mt. Vesuvius.
The country will welcome you with the most picturesque landscape ever. Places like Panachajel and Antigua have astonishing sights and jaw dropping locations. But reports of flying saucers and mysterious Mayan artifacts add to its mysterious and dangerous allure.
5. Ilha De Queimada Grande (Snake Island)
Along with your sunblock and swimming trunks make sure you get an anti-venom injection. In this mysterious island neighboring Brazil, you will find five snakes in every square meter with a pouch full of venom behind their fangs.
6. National Library, Kolkata
It is believed that Lady Metcalfe, who resided in that building during the British reign in India had a thing for cleanliness. Issue a book, take a seat and dare you make a mess on the table and her ghost might pay you a visit.
7. Mount Everest
There is no staircase to heaven at the world’s highest point in Nepal. Risks like frost bite, fatigue and avalanches are rampant throughout the trek to the top. Basically it’s a NO GO for the amateur.
8. Romania, The home of Dracula.
As Romania emerges from the economic ruins of the 1990s tourism is growing steadily. Hikers who have traversed through Capathian Mountains have spooky experiences. Unsettling reports from Transylvania, the birth place of the blood suckers, have always been floating around this location.
Being a traveler, your solitary desire lies in exploring the world and to trace all its corners. Poisonous snakes and crossfires should not keep you from discovering new things. Most travelers have already taken a chance ever since they decided not to follow the 9 to 5 schedule and suffocate their lives. Don't let anyone stop you in your endeavors, but make sure you take necessary precautions and remain humble.
