20 Creepiest Places in the World


• From abandoned towns to underground vaults
of death • These are 20 of the most terrifying and
creepy places in the world that you likely won’t want to visit
20 – Aokigahara Forest, • Located at the base of Mt Fuji, it’s commonly
referred to as the Suicide Forest • Since the 1950s Japanese folk have arrived
here in droves simply to kill themselves, nothing but bones and camp remnants remaining
• Nobody really knows why they do it, but maybe it’s one tradition that should, itself,
die 19 – The Body Farm,
• This is a human-made place of terror • At the University of Tennessee in Knoxville,
an outdoors research facility exists dedicated to piling up dead bodies all over the place
• The reason: murder re-enactments – crime scene investigators plop down a dead body
and murder situations are recreated so as to get as realistic depiction as possible
to help with investigations • A lot of people donate bodies simply to
help out 18 – The Door to Hell,
• In 1971, a team of Soviet geologists were drilling a hole in the ground looking for
gas and oil, when they stumbled upon a dangerous 230 foot chasm filled with methane gas
• Unwittingly, they tried to eliminate the gas with fire, and 40 years later that hole
is still burning • For some reason spiders love cuddling
up next to this hole, likely so they can worship their lord Satan from his hallowed doorway
17 – The Kabayan Mummy Caves, • In the Philippines there are a series
of caves, inside these cave are thousands of pods, inside these pods are dead bodies,
mummies to be more precise • The Kabayan mummies are easily the best
preserved on Earth, and there are so many of these things, inside so many caves that
it’d be easy to get lost in here • Lost alongside endless mummies, frozen
in their death positions forevermore 16 – Helltown,
• It was once a town full of people, but in the 70s there was a government buyout and
everyone was forced to evict • Originally, all the houses were supposed
to be torn down but that never happened, instead the towns are populated by boarded up houses
and burnt up ones, used as fire department practice for actual house fires
• There’s a drop off on Stanford Road with a dead end, and they call it End of the World
15 – Centralia, the Underground Furnace, • It was once a busy mining town in Eastern
Pennsylvania, with stores, hotels and saloons • Abandoned mines were used as landfills
• In 1962, a group of miners began burning a large chunk of the landfill, unfortunately
it was on top of some flammable coal, and suddenly the fire spread to all areas of the
mine • For 7 years it burnt – people tried to
stop it but failed, the carbon menoxide started spilling to above ground
• Eventually the people were evacuated and Centralia left to burn, and it still does
to this day, a deep, underground furnace that will not be doused
14 – Jatinga, the Valley of Death for Birds, • It’s around 9km south of Haflong town
in the Dima Hasao district of Assam • Jatinga is deceptively beautiful, flowers
blooming, colourful orchides, but it masks a strange phenomenon
• Ever year, around August through November, at 7 – 10pm, at a precise one mile strip of
land, birds fly here to die • Just like Aokigahara forest, it’s a mystery
why this happens, but it turned into a tourist attraction because of it
13 – Catacombs of Paris, • In the 17th and 18th centuries, the cemeteries
in Paris were mounting up to insane numbers • So much in fact that decaying flesh dripped
into the countries water supply • So they decided to instead build catacombs
and dungeons filled with bodies, skulls mounted, bones as the foundation, there are approx
6 million bodies and climbing • There’s also a non-tourist area full of
bodies extending for miles beneath Paris 12 – Candido Godoi,
• This is a town in Brazil that produces excessive amounts of twin births
• The cause is only speculated at, but the story goes a Nazi doctor Josef Mengele performed
twin experiments in Auschwitz to increase the Aryan population, and he continued this
experiments in Candido Godoi • Historians, however, believe the twin
epidemic to be caused by inbreeding, but it does make you wonder
11 – The “Isla de las Munecas” or: Island of the Dolls,
• It gets its name for obvious reasons – dirty, deformed dolls are littered everywhere, tied
to trees, some decapitated others scattered on the ground
• Each and every doll was put there by one man, a hermit named Julian Santana Barrera,
and the story goes he found the dead body of a little girl, and so he tied her doll
to a tree in remembrance • He kept collecting dolls, decorating the
island, appeasing the spirit of the dead girl until, in 2001, he died, and the theories
suggest he committed suicide from insanity 10 – The Chernobyl Amusement Park,
• One the 26th of April 1986, the worst ever nuclear disaster happened at the Nuclear
Power Plant in Chernobyl, irradiating countries in all directions
• A lot of Chernobyl was evacuated, and sites like this amusement park are casualties
• It was actually scheduled to open the day before the incident happened, but instead
it’s an overgrown park, forever frozen in 1986
• Instead of children’s laughter, there’s nothing but an eerie silence
9 – Winchester Mystery House, • A place in North Carolina, weirdly constructed,
corridors leading nowhere, staircases that seem to go up endlessly, and a creepy unnatural
vibe • Sarah Winchester oversaw the construction,
and insisted up round-the-clock supervision • She claims to have been haunted by a group
known as the Winchester rifles, gun fanatics • But then she died, work on the building
stopped, and now it’s a tourist attraction 8 – San Zhi Resort, the Martian Pods,

were abandoned • Today they stand there, decaying, a creepy
monument to 70s quirky exterior design 7 – Hellingly Hospital,
• It was an insane asylum from the early 1900s
• For 90 years the staff labotomized and electrocuted patients until, in 1994, the
building was ultimately abandoned • The building was never knocked down, and
even today it’s still a creepy place, like straight out of a movie, a monument to insanity
and torture 6 – Matuso Ghost Mine, or “Silent Hill”,
• Northern Japan, a town that once housed the largest sulfur mine in the Far East
• They closed up in the 70s, and residents decided to abandon the town, leaving it to
ruin • This wouldn’t be too bad alone, but a
dense mist forever surrounds the area, and people tell stories about figures moving around
in the mist, giant figures 5 – Maunsell Sea Forts, the Silent Guardians,

they serve as creepy monuments to war, long abandoned but always on the horizon
4 – The Overturn Bridge, Suicide Leap, • This Scotland bridge has seen hundreds
of men and women plummet to their deaths • Likewise, though tragic, for some reason
dogs do the same – around 15 dogs a year jump to their death

• A long time ago, soil below this Czech Republic ossuary was sprinkled with holy water

human bones 2 – The Jewish Cemetery,
• A lot of people die – but it’s the Jewish cemetery in Prague that takes this to a whole
new level • Each time the cemetery gets full, they
just build another one on top • And they didn’t do this just once or twice,
they’ve built new cemeteries on top of each other ELEVEN times
• And there will continue to be new layers until people decide to stop dying
1 – Gunkanjima, • Translated, this place is Battleship Island,
and it used to house a mining facility • After it shut down, the towns populace
abandoned Battleship Island leaving behind decaying buildings and complexes
