Travelling should be a stimulating experience for us. Before planning a trip we all research about the place, history, culture, food and whether it is safe or not.

  1. Safety should be the primary thing in trip planning. Sometimes the weather of a country is not suitable to be a tourist at that place. Few places are very high in crime rates whereas at some places the natural disasters are frequent. In this blog, you will become aware of places you never thought could be so dangerous to travel.

1. Danakil desert, East Africa

The barren land of the Danakil Desert is the most inhospitable and ecologically unsuitable place to live. The frequently erupting volcanoes, sulphur springs and lava lakes makes this place very dangerous. The mixture of sulphur with iron and copper salts make the rocks colourful and beautiful to view but is one of the deadliest places.

2. Alagoas, Brazil

Brazil is one of the most beautiful destinations in the world with picturesque landscapes. The place is equally dangerous and unsafe due to the violent crimes in a few areas of Brazil. Drug dealing and robbery are common in some places. Rocinha is also a very common place where shootouts happen. Holidaying at such places is not a good option.

3. Skeleton Coast, Namibia

Stretching over an area of 500 kilometres from the old German colonial town of Swakopmund and the Angolan border is not a place you should visit. The place has derived its name because the shore is all covered with skeletons of various animals. The predators Hyena and Lion wander and make the animals their prey. It is not at all safe to be here as even sharks are seen along the shore along with elephants that come to bath in the here. Humans are not welcomed in this terrifying territory of skeletons all over.

Guatemala city is unsafe and dangerous in many ways. Being alone in the day time is also not safe as this place has reported many illegal activities such as smuggling, mugging, drug dealing and prostitution. Although some zones are comparatively safer, risks still prevail. Murders also take place and the police force is ineffective here so no kind of external help can be provided. Also, the environmental conditions are not very suitable as the pollution content in the air is very high making it toxic to breathe.

5. Carcass, Venezuela

The capital of Venezuela, Carcass has the top five highest per capita murder rates in the world. Very few crimes result in trail or conviction so you cannot expect justice for any crime done here.

Even famous tourist attractions like Avila National Park are not safe. Picking pockets, carjacking, poisoning, Airport tax scam are few of the majorly reported crimes in Carcass.
