It’s hard to imagine that there are places that we’re not allowed to visit, especially with today’s technology. However, if you plan on going to North Sentinel Island in India, it’s probably best to reschedule that trip. In 2006, the tribe killed two fishermen who accidentally entered their territory. Now, it’s strictly forbidden as it could result in death.
Even without the threat of death, there are plenty of places that cannot be visited as they are cut off for a variety of reasons. Military bases, forbidden islands, and fragile natural landmarks are off limits to people. Take a tour and be sure to not include any of these places as your next place to visit.

The massive collection of seeds is in a vault designed to withstand man-made and natural disasters. If a major catastrophe ever happened, the 890,000 preserved seed samples from almost every country in the world would ensure diverse food options were still available.
The vault has opened its door only a few times in a year. Still, the climate change might test how effective the Seed Vault is. In May 2017, melted permafrost made it inside. Today, it’s become a vital importance in the war-torn and drought-affected Syria.
