7 Forbidden Destinations You Can Never Visit

There are very few places on Earth that have not been touched by human hands, and no place that hasn’t felt the effects of human inhabitance. But there are places that for one reason or another are off-limits to most people.

A special select few may be allowed, but you will certainly not be welcomed on your next vacation.

Whether to protect indigenous nature, keep humans safe, or hide facts the government doesn’t want you to know, these forbidden destinations can only be viewed from a distance. Of course, there is nothing more alluring than the taboo, so you’re really going to want to go.

Take our word for it, though, you’re better off reading this article than risking life, limb, and prosecution. Luckily, you can get near enough to some of these places to experience a taste, like #2 and #7. Others are straight-up banned, like #1 and #3, which might be the most famous forbidden place on the planet.
