Four wonderful places where man can not set foot

In our current world, it’s hard to imagine a place we can not see, without being effortlessly photographed, shared, and coded on social media. But are still untouched by some tourists.

Most corners of the world welcome visitors, some are The hermetic seal was placed on the public. Often, it is strictly forbidden to set foot on them for security, legal or scientific reasons.

We invite you to meet Four of these isolated corners of the world (Without the risk of stepping on restricted areas).

On a remote island called Spitzbergen in the Arctic archipelago of Svalbard, Norway, a sandstone mountain 120 meters inland is home to a catastrophic site: The world’s largest seed deposit.

About 1,300 km from the North Pole, and 130 m above sea level, thick Permanent frost – Permanent frozen layer around the box- Helps to preserve hundreds of thousands of seed samples stored inside.

This location is also ideal for this task as there is no seismic activity.

However, although the seeds have been stored as safely as possible since the bunker was opened in 2008, there is no humane way to verify this.

The vault is strongly protected by lime and stone, which ensures that it contains seeds Can live for thousands of years If necessary.

In recent years, however, some scientists have expressed concern about rising temperatures, which may have been a factor thawing permafrost.

On 2020, Local researchers have recorded the hottest summer in Svalbard. “We have seen unprecedented melting of glaciers and permanent melting of ice,” Kim Holman, a scientist at the Polar Institute in Norway, told the BBC.

This seed bunker is a crop reserve that guarantees the restoration of organisms in the event of a major global catastrophe, and will be essential to protect us humans from food shortages.

Each country stores its own core seeds for its food production, but Svalbard is a kind of global supporter of the World Seed Bank.

Ilha da Queimada Grande, Ilha das Cobras (கோப்ராஸ் தீவு) A small rocky island, wild, without beaches and difficult to access, Located 35 km off the coast of Sao Paulo.

The island was discovered in 1532 by the colonial expedition of Martim Afonso de Sousa. However, the history of this place is very ancient. At the end of the last ice age, about 11,000 years ago, sea level rose, splitting the mountain (which was part of the Serra do Marin) from the mainland and turning it into an island.

For the past five centuries it has attracted attention for an extraordinary feature: It is almost exclusively inhabited by snakes. There are estimates that may be One to five snakes per square meter of the island.

There is The second largest concentration of snakes Worldwide: Approximately 45 per hectare, roughly equivalent to the size of a football field – next to Shedov Island in China.

But on the Brazilian island, the highly venomous snake species distinguished itself from its land relatives. Gold spear head (Bothropes insularis) A kind of pit viper Quimata is owned by Grande.

It is so deadly that one bite is enough to stop the birds from flying again. “Snake venom is more poisonous to birds than mammals,” Marcelo Ribeiro Duarte, a biologist at the Button Institute of Zoology, told the BBC Brazil. “It demonstrates the species’ excellent adaptability.”

The Bothropes insularis Measurement Between half a meter and a meterWomen tend to be slightly larger.

“Because the island’s fauna is so rare, adults of this species feed on migratory birds (domestic birds are not preyed upon), without rodents or other mammals (except bats),” the researcher told BBC Brazil. Vidal Hadat Jr. in Poisonous Animals, from Pottukattu Medical Faculty.

“Young specimens eat lizards, waterfowl and arthropods, for example centipede.”

Government of Brazil No one was allowed to enter the island, As a precautionary measure. The only exception to this rule are some researchers, who must be with a physician at all times to view it and adhere to strict protocols.

However, this remote 43-hectare island off the coast of So Paulo does not seem to be the most desirable vacation spot.

When discovered, World War II broke out. Eight years later, Lascox Cave was opened to the general public who wanted to get a closer look at the work of their ancestors.

In 1963 public visits were discontinued. Mold grew on the walls of the cave, threatening to preserve the artifact, which had been airtight prior to its discovery.

Almost 60 years later, the cave remains unoccupied to the public, although a replica was built nearby for tourists to visit.

Uru, formerly known as Ayers Rock, has been a tourist destination for many years, but was recently added to the list of places not to be seen by the public.

Also known as the “navel of the world”, it is one of the largest single orbits on the planet.

Previously, visitors could try to climb 348 meters to the summit. Severe heat, Summer temperatures are around 47 degrees Celsius.

Climbing steeply to the top can also cause difficulties. But, for many, the beauty of the place made up for it.

உளுரு ஒரு இடம் Sacred to the Anangu tribe The guards and spectators of the rock wanted to respect their traditions and stop climbing on it.

That option was unanimously supported in 2017 by a petition by the Uluru-Kada Djuda National Park Board that decided to prevent people from setting foot in Uluru.

October 25, 2019 was the last day people were allowed to climb the cliff before the ban came into force. Tourists waited in long queues.

In Anangu culture, uru is evidence of the heavenly beings coming to earth when they were formless and lifeless. They traveled through it and created living creatures and shapes, i.e. organisms.

Visitors can still visit Uluru-Kada Djuda National Park. But the sacred rock It can only be noticed, never trampled or climbed.
