#1 North Sentinel Island, India

North Sentinel Island, India

North Sentinel Island is a home to Sentinelese, which is one of a few tribes in the world that have zero contact with the modern civilization. It is believed that the tribe survives by hunting, fishing, and collecting wild plants, but there were no signs of agriculture or fire.
The first successful expedition was in 1970, lead by T.N. Pandit. Despite that, to this day the tribe refuses to create any contact with the modern world as they violently drove off anyone who tried to enter their premises. In 2006 the tribe killed two fishermen who accidentally entered their territory but no attempt was made by the Indian government to prosecute the murders. Now, it is strictly forbidden to enter this island, and entering it may result in death. Christian Caron

#2 Area 51, USA

Area 51, USA

Area 51 is a U.S. military installation that is located 100 miles north of Las Vegas. It is considered to be one of the most mysterious places in the world since the U.S. government denied its existence until just 2013. Now, it is mostly known for its many UFO conspiracy theories.
The area is mainly used by CIA and the U.S. Air Force as a testing territory because of its remote location. Despite it being a military installation, many people believe that it might be the place where scientists research a crashed alien spacecraft. Many conspiracy theory enthusiasts visit the nearby territory to Area 51, yet entrance is completely prohibited. Doc Searls

#3 Metro-2, Line D6, Russia

Metro-2, Line D6, Russia

During the reign of Stalin, a secret system of underground transport was built known as Metro-2. This mysterious metro system supposedly connects administrative institutions like Kremlin, Vnukovo-2 airport and General Staff Academy.
It is reported that the tunnels also include apartaments and technical rooms. Since the system was not available for outsiders, it is believed to be a secret escape tunnel for high-level officials during war. Moscow metro administration denies the existence of these tunnels, yet back in 1994 an urban exploration group claim to have found the entrance to the underground system.
Now, only one out of four lines is confirmed to exist, and that is the line D6. The access to this place is strictly forbidden for outsiders and it can only be entered with a special pass. Anakin

#4 North Brother Island, Usa

North Brother Island, Usa

North Brother Island is a 13-acre piece of land located in the East River, a couple of miles away from Manhattan, New York. It is a place where over 1.000 people died after a passenger ship sank in the island’s waters. Later it was a Riverside Hostipal where they treated contagious diseases. The most notorious resident was Mary Mallon, better known as Typhoid Mary.
Mary was the first documented person in the USA to be identified as an asymptomatic carrier of the bacteria that causes typhoid fever. It is believed that she infected more than 50 people with, 3 of whom died, and always denied being a carrier. The reason? She rarely washed her hands while making deserts and spread the bacteria to anyone who ate them. The island was later abandoned until the 1950’s when a center opened to treat drug addicts. Now it is a bird sanctuary for herons and other wading shorebirds. The island is currently abandoned and off-limits to the public. Reivax

#5 Svalbard Global Seed Vault, Norway

Svalbard Global Seed Vault, Norway

Deep inside the Arctic circle, on the Norwegian island of Spitsbergen, the Global Seed vault is hidden deep inside a mountain. It is sometimes called ‘The Doomsday Vault”, because even in the worst scenario of a disaster to mankind it would preserve the diversity of the world’s food crops and restore the plant kingdom.
It was built to last around 200 years and withstand earthquakes and explosions. It was placed on the side of a mountain so even if all the ice on earth melts, it will still be above sea level. The vault contains 100 million seeds, a complete ‘backup’ of Earth’s food-crop seed at the present time.

Policy is invalid here – even North Korea has frozen its seeds there. The first withdrawal from the vault was recently made by Syria in order to recreate an International Research Centre in Aleppo which was lost to war. It was used to store the genetic material of crops. Today these lost stores have become of vital importance in war-torn and drought-affected Syria. Frode Ramone
