The Most Terrifying Places on Earth You Would Not Want to Visit
#1 Aokigahara Suicide Forest, Japan
The notorious Aokigahara forest is found at the base of Mount Fuji in the country of Japan. The forest is a famous Japanese and international site of mass suicide. Since the 1950s more than 500 people have taken their own lives in Aokigahara. The trend was started by Seicho Matsumoto’s novel Kuroi Kaiju (Black Sea of Trees). To make it even creepier, the area is filled with signs displaying such messages like “Life is a precious thing! Please reconsider!” or “Think of your family!”
#2 Pluckley, England
Pluckley is commonly referred to as the most haunted village in Great Britain. It is said to be haunted by at least a dozen ghosts. The rumor has it that in the nearby Screaming Woods, you can still hear the chilling cries of the dead and many ghost hunters flock the place all year round.
#3 Helltown, USA
This is the entrance to Helltown. The steep Stanford Road drop off is immediately followed by a dead end. This place is frequently called “The End of the World.” Endless rows of inadequate people and creatures are rumored to be wandering the woods.
#4 The Wall, Coast of St. Croix, USA
This famous place off the coast of St. Croix is aptly called: “The Wall.” At a certain point, there is a large drop in the beautiful lush corals— the sea floor drops two miles straight down into the endless jet black abyss. Even the strong and huge blue whales return from these depths with large wounds.
#5 Pripyat, Ukraine
This was formerly a bustling little town with around 49,000 locals living there. It was evacuated after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. Residents fled in extreme fear and left everything they had behind. The city subsequently turned into a freaky ghost town.
