13 Places No One Is Allowed To EVER Visit - The Comprehensive Minds

13 Places No One Is Allowed To EVER Visit

No One Is Allowed To EVER Visit

How would you like to visit an island full of snakes whose venom is so potent, it dissolves human flesh? Or a government installation so top secret, that if caught inside without proper ID you'll be shot on sight? 

What about Walt Disney's secret club, and the only place in Disneyland where alcohol is served? This world is full of wonderful places to visit, but there are places so dangerous, so secret, and so exclusive, that you will never, ever be allowed to visit. 

#13. Disney Club 33 

If you've ever visited Disneyland, you know it's a wonderful place full of magic, dreams, and a secret super exclusive club for the world's elite. Oh wait, you didn't know about Walt Disney'ssecret club to entertain the most powerful and influential people in the world? Well, that's clearly because you're not elite enough, a matter of fact maybe you should quit reading this article and go back to your potato farm, peasant. 

But, for those elite enough to be on the invite list, Disney Club 33 is a swanky, upscale establishment in the heart of the most magical place on earth, which is also the only place in the park they serve the most magical drink in the world- ayahuasca- err, we mean alcohol. 

That's right if you're a parent and hankering for a beer after 12 hours of wrangling a bunch of screaming toddlers around, then this is the spot for you- if you could get in that is. The club is invitation only, meaning you need to know someone who's already a member in order to get an invite. 

Then there's the simple matter of your initiation fee- a modest $25,000 to $100,000 fee, along with your annual fee of $12,500 to $30,000, depending on your level of membership. That's right, even within the elites there are varying levels of the elite, and you don't want to be the scrub with a trash tier membership paying only $12,500 a year, do you? 

Club 33 is full of all kinds of upscale swank, and though it was once briefly open to the public, it was soon made into the members-only affair. So what's inside this exclusive Disney club? Well, aside from the typical super-rich stuff like paintings, sculptures, and a dining room called 'Le Grand Salon', there's an animatronic bird called Alfred the vulture who sits atop a grandfather clock and paintings where the subjects move around or disappear, only to reappear in different paintings Rumor has it that if you're a part of the super-exclusive diamond tier, you can even have lunch with the cryogenically preserved head of Walt Disney himself. 

Our next place is so deadly, humans are prohibited from visiting. 

#12. Snake Island 

If flesh-dissolving venomous snakes sound like your idea of a good time, then have we got some good news for you. Brazil's Ilha de Queimada Grande is located just 90 miles off the Sao Paulo coast and looks like a tropical paradise as you approach. 

Then you get off your boat to discover that the island isn't nicknamed Snake Island ironically, but rather, quite literally, as the island is home to thousands of one of the deadliest snakes in the world- the golden lancehead viper. 

One love bite from these beautiful snakes will have you dead in an hour, but that'll give you plenty of time to writhe in agony as the venom slowly dissolves your flesh. With toxicity three to five times greater than any mainland snake, it's enough to drop most smaller animals dead in seconds. 

The reason golden lancehead vipers evolved such potent venom is that there is no ground-level prey on the island, and instead, the snakes have to feed off migratory birds who rest on the trees. These snakes have to kill and kill quickly, and with up to four thousand of them packed into one tiny island, competition for food is fierce. 

Visiting the island is illegal, though, with a population density of one snake per square meter, Brazil doesn't have to work very hard to enforce that ban on visitors. 

Our next place no one is allowed to visit is not just deadly, it’s one of the most remote on earth. 

#11. Heard Island 

If exclusive clubs or snakes isn't your thing, maybe visiting one of the world's most remote, and dangerous islands are. Heard Island is an extremely remote territory of Australia located two-thirds of the way between Madagascar and Antarctica. 

While the island isn't technically illegal to visit, unless you have a death wish there's no good reason to. Just getting to the island requires a weeklong journey over some of the stormiest seas on earth, and even if your boat isn't smashed to bits by turbulent Antarctic seas, you might end up missing the island entirely as it is covered by a dense cloud for up to 360 days a year. 

What secrets does this real-life Skull Islandhide? Well, an active volcano for one, and the moment you get off your boat you're going to be hearing the groaning and popping of molten rock beneath your feet, ready to explode at a moment's notice. 

Just walking around the island can be a serious problem, with the average wind speed being 21 mph (33 km/h), and gusts up to an incredible125 mph (200 kph) With its rocky, icy surface being broken up regularly by deep crevasses, one strong gust of wind could see you plummeting to your death hundreds of feet below. 

As one researcher who regularly visits the island put it- if you get in trouble on Heard Island, there's nobody coming to rescue you. And that's if you even survive the boat trip there in the first place. 

The next spot on this list is protected by the Chinese government and is one of the world’s oldest tombs. 

#10. Tomb of Qin Shi Huang China's first emperor

Qin Shi Huang, famously worked very hard to avoid death- even going so far as to drink 'life elixirs' containing mercury and prescribed by his court magicians. While he inevitably died as all men do, he ended up being immortalized in a completely different way. 

Completely forgotten by history, Qin Shi Huang'stomb lay under a large hill until 1974, when a group of farmers started digging wells near Xi'an and dug up a life-sized terracotta soldier. Immediately archaeologists descended on the site and made a startling discovery- a massive tomb containing up to 8,000 terracotta soldiers, each one handcrafted and completely unique from the rest. 

Yet while the main burial chamber is impressive given the army of soldiers, chariots, and equipment for war, the central tomb where Qin Shi Huang himself is buried has yet to be opened. The Chinese government has banned anyone from opening the tomb, with some believing that it's out of fear of the damage that could be done to the relics inside. 

When King Tut's tomb was opened in the 1930s, the relatively primitive archaeological techniques used ended up causing great harm to the tomb itself and wiping out many opportunities to learn even more about the ancient king. It's hoped that future technologies will allow the tomb to be opened and the integrity of the artifacts and remains to be preserved for study. 

For us, after experiencing the year 2020, we say that China can go ahead and keep the ancient tomb of a warmongering emperor hellbent on attaining eternal life locked up forever. 

Our next dangerous destination is home to one of the last uncontacted people on earth. 

#9. North Sentinel Island

Some people just want to be left alone, and that includes the Sentinelese people of India'sNorth Sentinel island. An extremely remote island on the south Indian ocean, North Sentinel Island is home to one of the few remaining isolated tribes in the world- and they want to keep things that way. 

India initially attempted to establish formal contact with the Sentinelese, but that was quickly canceled after it was made clear that these people wanted no part of the outside world. As if the point wasn't clear enough, it was driven home time and again as fishermen ignoring the government ban on setting ashore on the island, have been killed with spears and arrows by the natives. 

Just in 2018, an American missionary was killed, his body dragged to the beach so all watching would get the hint: leave us alone. The Sentinelese are violently protective of their island, to the point of threatening Indian navy warships that wandered too close during a military exercise. 

Regular helicopter overflights undertaken by the Indian navy for the purpose of surveys are frequently attacked by arrows and spears, though the pilots make it a point to fly well over the reach of these primitive weapons. 

Sometimes though the Sentinelese take more proactive measures to defend their island, and have been known to give chase on dugout canoes. Rumors are that they also swim to nearby islands, at times threatening the locals there. 

If you're a world adventurer perhaps sit a trip to this island out, or risk-taking an arrow to the knee and going into early retirement. 

The next place on our list is one of the most secretive on earth and may contain relics from outside our home planet... 

#8. Area 51 

It's the unofficial home of the 'Skunkworks', the world's most advanced aerospace engineering program, and where legendary aircraft such as the B-2, SR-71, and F-117 were born. It might also be holding alien bodies recovered from a crash in the 50s. Officially it's known as Area 51, unofficially it has the moniker 'Dreamland', allegedly for the incredible aerospace projects that were developed there. 

The US government denied all knowledge of the existence of Area 51 until 1992, and to this day much of what goes on there remains highly classified. 

What is known is that the most advanced aircraft to ever fly the earth have all gotten their start here, and research continues to this day as airplanes with blacked-out windows fly employees to this remote site from an unmarked terminal at Las Vega's McCarran airport. 

Approaching Area 51 is all but impossible on foot, as armed guards patrol the perimeter regularly. Road beds and footpaths leading into the valley that hides this secret military base are all monitored with pressure sensors, while powerful infrared cameras continuously sweep the desert. 

Deadly force is authorized for the subdual of trespassers, and to this day Area 51 remains the one place nobody has ever successfully infiltrated- and returned to tell the tale. 

The next place you can’t visit won’t just kill you- it could kill anyone you come in contact with if you should return! 

#7. Chernobyl, Ukraine 

On a cold night on April 26th of 1986, the world suffered the worst nuclear accident to date. A massive explosion at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant would end up spreading 100 radioactive elements over 150,000 square kilometers of Belarus, Russia, and Ukraine. 

In total, up to 200,000 people were evacuated from an area about 1,000 square miles surrounding the power plant, and the region has remained off-limits and completely uninhabited to this day. 

While the most dangerous elements now contaminating the site have only a half of life about 30 years, meaning they should have been dramatically reduced in the three decades since the accident, researchers have discovered that these elements actually take longer than expected to decay. 

This means that the site will be permanently uninhabitable for several thousand years, though if in four thousand year’s time you're looking for a quiet neighborhood with great views of nature, Chernobyl's your ticket. 

The affected cities have been completely retaken by nature, and a surprising amount of wildlife is found to be thriving in the area thanks to the lack of human interference. Some locals living along the edges of the exclusion area however maintain that more than natural wildlife is running free in the fenced-off area, and Chernobyl has inspired many modern horror stories, films, and games. 

The number six spot on this list is off-limits for being a direct link to our most prehistoric past! 

#6. Lascaux Caves, 

France In the summer of 1940 the world had plenty to worry about- especially France- but for a moment the entire world's attention was focused on a single fox's den discovered in the remote French countryside. 

Three young men exploring the deserted they were shocked to discover a small system of caves, adorned with all forms of prehistoric artwork. The walls were adorned with many breathtakingly beautiful paintings of all matter of prehistoric animals, and along with the art, archaeologists discovered all matter of tools and jewelry that shed new light onto our prehistoric ancestors. 

The advanced tools discovered and the sophisticated artwork led many to rethink the truth about our primitive ancestors, though sadly the incredible discovery didn't manage to divert the world's attention away from a new world war for very long. Today the caves are protected by the French government, which considers them one of its most important cultural treasures. 

The next place on our list just might be the single most exclusive place on earth, where less than a dozen people may have tread… 

#5 Ise Grand Shrine 

Japan Ise Grand Shrine is the Mecca or Calgary Hill of the Shinto faith, and the site of many pilgrims even to this day. However, nobody except for one single person is ever allowed to enter the shrine itself- and that's a member of the Japanese imperial family. 

Constructed to worship the sun goddess Amaterasu-omikani, the shrine has been the Shinto religion's most holy place for an estimated over 2,000years. In all this time tradition dictated that the interior of the shrine could only be entered by its priestess and priest, a role that could only be fulfilled by a member of the Japanese Imperial family. 

Even if you had previously served in the role, however, you may not know what the actual interior of the shrine looks like today though, as every 20 years the entire interior is remodeled. Are you a fan of ghost hunting? 

Well, you may want to skip visiting this next spot on our list for your own safety... 

#4. World's Most Haunted Island 

Maybe you’re a modern adventurer, plunging deep into places the authorities don’t allow visitors- but you may want to rethink your trip to what's often called 'the most haunted island on earth'. 

The island's history of misery started early with the Romans who used the island as a quarantine zone for those with the bubonic plague. Eventually, dead bodies were shipped to the island to be burned, resulting in a thick layer of ash that remains mixed with the soil to this day. 

In the 1920s, a mental asylum was established on the island, and unsurprisingly reports of abuse and death were quick to follow. The island has drawn international attention for its notoriously sinister past, and several ghost hunting tv shows have filmed at the location. 

Ghost Adventures stranded its crew on the island for 24 hours and managed to capture many strange and unexplained supernatural phenomenon and electromagnetic activity in a place lacking modern technology. 

Today the Italian government is so desperate to re-develop the island that it's offered a 99-year lease on the island for cheap- though unsurprisingly nobody seems interested in an island full of ghosts. 

The next place on our list is rumored to be the site of many secret US government biological weapon programs… 

#3. North Brother Island 

Many places on our list are islands, and for good reason- islands are the best places to hide things you don't want the public seeing or to keep people away. North Brother Island in the US may just be one such place. 

Home to Riverside Hospital, New York State purchased the island as a place to treat and quarantine individuals with highly contagious diseases. Given the state of medical technology at the time, needless to say, many of these patients- and some of the staff- ended up dying on the island. Eventually, the hospital shut down and was abandoned until it was reopened during World War II to house military vets. A few decades later, the old hospital was once more reopened to treat and house heroin addicts, though today it remains closed and abandoned. 

New York has made visiting the island or trespassing illegal and threatens legal action against any who would make the attempt. What's more, the state routinely denies permission for media to visit the island, turning down many popular ghost hunting shows. 

The question is- why? What is New York state hiding on North BrotherIsland? Evidence of inhumane medical experiments from the past? An unknown highly infectious disease? A secret government research site? 

We may never know, though a few intrepid souls who have secretly visited the island report nothing more spooky than the occasional ghost sighting and the general uneasiness that permeates the island. 

The next place on our list could house some of the world’s greatest secrets… but you’ll never get to find out. 

#2. Vatican Secret Archives 

Deep beneath Vatican city is a vault containing53 miles of shelving containing documents and correspondence that span back incredible1,200 years. This is the Vatican's Secret Archives, and one of the most important places on earth that only a select few are allowed to visit. 

Just to enter the archives you have to be a member of the Catholic Church, serve in the Vatican, and be at least 75 years old. But let's say you spend your life dedicated to God, make the big move to the Vatican and find a job there, and finally hit the ripe old age of three-quarters of a century- what are you going to find in the most secret library on earth? 

Well, turns out we have a pretty good idea of what's actually inside the Vatican's secret archive because they're actually not even supposed to be secret at all. 

The word secret comes from a misunderstanding of the Latin word “secretum”, which means secret. So the archives weren't meant to be secret from the world as they were simply a private collection of books and correspondence owned by the pope himself. 

But they might as well have been secret, as seven Christian scholars were denied access until the pope opened the archives up in 1881. Since then researchers have been meticulously pouring over the documents and discovering a literal treasure trove of history- one of the most impressive pieces is a letter written from Mary Queen of Scots, begging the pope to intervene on her behalf as she faced execution. 

The full contents of the archives won't be known for years still, as the privacy concerns of the Vatican limit the size of the research staff. 

The extremely delicate nature of the documents themselves also further inhibits the already painstakingly slow work. So if the Catholic Church does know about the existence of aliens, we might not know for a century or more yet. 

Our number one spot is not only closed off to the public but maybe mankind’s best hope for surviving the apocalypse. 

#1. The Modern Noah's Ark 

Humanity faces a lot of problems in its immediate future- everything from global warming, a nuclear war, and the secret takeover of aliens from zeti reticuli. Then there's always the chance of a random natural event simply wiping humanity's slate clean, such as an asteroid impact or a supervolcano eruption. 

Losing our technology would be bad enough, but one place in Svalbard, Norway, is there to ensure we never lose the most important thing in our world: our crops. Without food, humanity could not hope to survive, and to that end, it's become increasingly important that humanity prepares for a catastrophic scenario that devastates our food crops. 

The Svalbard Seed Vault is basically a modern-day Noah's Ark and houses seeds from every crop grown around the world. The vault is dug several hundred feet into geologically stable sandstone in the high arctic, so that way in case its mechanical refrigeration units failed, the extreme cold outside would ensure the seeds remained perfectly preserved. Its developers even accounted for warmer ambient air temperatures due to global warming- Norway has planned for every contingency possible in order to ensure humanity can survive. 

The seeds aren't just meant to be used in the case of global disaster though, as the seed vault can also be used to help in the case of smaller disasters such as the loss of specific crops to global pandemics. It also serves an important role as a genetic bank, holding pristine genetic samples of crops that can be regrown in the future when those same crops may have experienced genetic drift due to mutations. 

Security and the protection of these seeds are so serious that even the natural radiation emitted from the rock around the vault has been accounted for so that over thousands of years of storage, seeds won't' suffer much if any damage from long-term radiation exposure. 

The Svalbard Global Seed Vault isn't the only one of its kind, but it is one of the most secure and naturally protected vaults in the world. The real question is why so many vaults though? What do the elites know about our future that we don't?! Now find out who'll survive the apocalypse, with The Most Powerful Families Who Secretly Run The World.
