You may have money and even in abundance but there are places in the world that are very dangerous to travel to. These places are forbidden and hence one is prohibited from visiting


1. North Sentinel island

Sentinel island is one of the Andaman Islands in the Bay of Bengal and the home of the "Sentinel nelis" tribe, one of the dangerous indigenous tribes as they avoid contact with modern civilization and fiercely resist any interference.

According to scholars, these indigenous people spent up to 60,000 years isolated from all forms of civilization.

These people are defending their lands desperately. An example is, they fired spears at an Indian government helicopter in 2004, when it flew over the island after the tsunami waves to find out if the Islanders needed help.


2. Ilha da Queimada Grande Island

This island is about 35 kilometers from the coast of Brazil and it looks like a real paradise but you may pay your life a price to visit this island.

This is due to overcrowding with poisonous snakes. The island has an area of 0.43 square kilometers and there are an estimated 4000 snakes. For the most dangerous snakes, it is the "stomping snakes" or the "golden venom snake", whose venom is five times the strength of the venom of other snakes as it's bite causes immediate death. This island is also known as the "snake island" and Brazilian authorities prohibit anyone from going there.


3. Ise Shrine, Japan

The Ise Jingu Temple Complex is the most important shrine in Japan as the main temple is surrounded by a high wooden fence and only high priests and members of the ruling family are allowed to enter.

Access to the temple was more difficult until 1945, when the Miyagawa River isolated the shrine from the outside world while it was considered a symbol of the separation between the ordinary lands and the holy Land.

Monks strictly forbade crossing the river as it was believed that people entering the temple was a violation of the sanctity of the shrine which caused problems for all of Japan.


4. Gruinard Island

The British government bought the Scottish island of Gruinard in 1942, for the purpose of testing biological weapons specifically "anthrax". It was found out that during that experiment, anthrax contaminated the area for an extended period of time, causing death.

In 1990, the island was declared safe and despite this, no one inhabited it while experts warned that anthrax spores may persist in the island's soil which means it will not be suitable for life for hundreds of years.


5. Surtsey island

An underwater volcano erupted in Iceland in 1963 and within a short period, an island of 2.7 square kilometers was formed which greatly captured the interest of scientists in various fields from different countries because it is a prominent example of how islands formed and the beginning of new life.

The island of Surti was named after a fairy tale character called "Surtr", who is the leader of fire giants, and since then the island has been ridiculed for scientific purposes.

It has also been banned from tourists.
