Be it any part of the world, there are various haunted and dangerous places that exist! Such places call for a creepy feel. Most of the times, these places leave us with a feeling of goosebumps and increased heart and pulse rate! India is a melting pot of experiences and cultures, a quality that also bleeds out onto our everyday lives and what we do. Obviously, with all the craziness and fervour in our country, our surroundings had to reflect the people we are. Some of these places are man-made, some have been naturally around since time immemorial, but all of them are guaranteed to give you a thrill. Presenting, the most dangerous spots in India.
1. Phugtal Monastery – Built on a cliffside
This surreal Monastery, known as the Phugtal Gompa, is situated in Ladakh and is built in the form of a honeycomb cut into the side of the cliffside. A precipitous climb to the spot and very limited options for food make this a place you prepare yourself to go to. The dizzying heights are commonplace for the locals, but anyone else might have a hard time.
2. Bastar- Swarming with naxals
This district of Chattisgarh is home to beautiful and wide-ranging forests and rivers. The large and unmanned woodland is also the perfect spot for guerilla activity, making this green paradise a hotbed of Naxal movement. Several attacks and firefights in the region have ensured low footfalls but high body counts.
3. Thar Desert – Did someone say Black Cobra?
This eternal sandscape might be stunning beyond words, but it’s beauty also hides a bite. The arid and dry conditions make for difficult travelling even if you’re well supplied with water and food. There’s also the presence of the Saw Scaled Viper, the large Rat Snake, Black Cobra, Sand Boa, wild cats and countless other creatures just waiting to bite your head off (not literally but you get the gist of it).
4. Pamban Bridge – The most dangerous sea bridge
This route that connects Rameshwaram to central India is actually a train route over the sea! If that wasn’t amazing enough, however, it also has a mechanism that allows ships to pass underneath, at one time requiring 12 people to manually pull levers that change the ascent. This bridge is also a 100 years old, making it that much more deadly.
5. Dumas Beach – Mysterious tourist disappearances
The Dumas Beach in Gujarat has always been shrouded in mystery, considered with extra care as it is also a cremation ground. There have been several reported disappearances around this beach, and it doesn’t seem to be sharks that are doing the taking. Black sands and dark nights make this a place to maintain a good distance from after dark.
