Our Top 6 Scariest Places on Earth


You can visit the Suicide Forest, but it’s no place for a relaxing stroll. The roots of the trees spread across the surface of the ground, twisting and turning into tripping hazards. The land there is uneven and rocky, but the worst part for many visitors, besides the place’s reputation, is the lack of sound. There isn’t much wildlife there, and the trees grow so densely that the wind doesn’t penetrate the region. One visitor to the Suicide Forest described the sound of their own breath as a “roar.” Volunteers who enter the forest use brightly-colored plastic ribbons and tape to mark their path, so they don’t get lost.
