Off-Limits: The Eeriest Places in the World

By 3 years ago

Thrill-seekers scour the planet in the search for the most remote locations that few humans have been able to visit, but even the savviest adventurer would have trouble getting to these forbidden and downright eerie destinations that normal civilians are barred from entering.

And yet, there are some places, however, where not even the most courageous and hardened people want to venture. Sites of bloody tragedies, supernatural phenomena, or just very creepy occurrences that send chills down even the bravest of spines. If you are one of those people who have an odd fascination with haunted places and eerie locations, this compilation will have you begging for more.

From the haunted Leap Castle in Ireland to the creepy Voodoo market in Togo and the macabre Italian catacombs (with life-like dressed mummies…), all of the places featured in this list may give you nightmares. And beware, they only get scarier as you go… are you ready?

RAF Menwith Hill

This facility in North Yorkshire, England contains intelligence and communications data for the UK and United States. Sorry, you can’t enter. Menwith Hill Station opened on 545 acres of land in 1954 and leased to the United States. The U.S. Army Security Agency established a high-frequency radio monitoring capability which could receive communications from the Soviet Union.

The Dulce Base

The Dulce Base in New Mexico is rumored to be home to extraterrestrials. It is an underground facility underneath the Archuleta Mesa in Dulce, New Mexico. Allegedly, this is a joint human and alien underground facility. Beginning in 1979, Albuquerque businessman Paul Bennewitz was positive he was intercepting electronic communications from alien spacecraft and he let the entire community know. The site was featured on the History Channel show UFO Hunters and an episode of Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura.

Mezhgorye, Russia

The town of Mezhgorye, Russia is allegedly the site of a secret missile launch facility. Reports have indicated that ballistic missiles are housed here which are capable of being launched automatically. This town is technically “closed” which makes this whole thing even more strange. Located in the southern Ural Mountains, it has been reported that there are automatically triggered sensors that can detect a nuclear strike.

 

Area 51

The famous military facility in the Nevada desert has a rich history of secrecy. Missiles, aircraft, and numerous other weapons have been developed and tested there. In the 1950’s it was primarily used for flight testing of the Lockheed U-2 aircraft. While it’s fun to maintain the illusion that aliens are freely roaming the grounds of Area 51, we’re still waiting for photo evidence…
