The fore start to go a completely new direction, and even the laziest tourists want to see and try something new.
Lately, especially popular are beginning to use forgotten all the gods of the place, the surroundings are reminiscent of a scene from a post-apocalyptic film. Maybe the reason DC voltage in the foreign environment — not preparing the people to new full of dangers and inconveniences of life? We did some research and gathered five of the most popular and strangely beautiful post-apocalyptic places for tourism, which is able to impress the most seasoned travelers — and certainly will remain forever in the memory of any traveler.
The emerald Isle of Montserrat
The local Soufrière volcano awoke in 1995 and was buried by its eruption two thirds of this tiny island. Warned in advance of people managed to escape, and then began to organize tours of the affected area. Gingerbread hill is located on the North coast, is the main attraction of the island: it has exceptional views of the capital and destroyed the local airport.
The white Sands are the world’s largest gypsum desert. These five hundred square kilometers of dazzling white space look as if you was in Antarctica — only the hot merciless sun. It was here that he conducted the first trials of the American nuclear bomb, but now the area is already quite reactivated. However, getting here will be difficult: the Park is open only twice a year — the first Saturday of April and first of October.
In this small, forgotten of all gods the place has fallen, according to some scientists, the meteorite that ended the age of dinosaurs. Half of the remaining after the crater is at the moment under water, the other is readily available to researchers. The locals offer a fascinating tour of both parts of the crater — what could be more epic than a touch to the history of our planet!
Wrangel island has a curious history. This is one of the few plots of land that escaped glaciation in the last Glacial period. Scientists believe that here in the Arctic tundra, roamed the world of the last mammoths. Today, tourists come here for an unforgettable experience. Here, there are still animals that can be considered a true relic of a bygone era — the musk ox, Pacific walrus, snowy owl and a fairly large population of polar bears.
This is the worst possible for human existence place on our planet. When the sun goes down, smoke beginning to emerge from cracks under your feet, and the eerie, blood red glow comes from lava lakes, of which there are as many as five pieces. The temperature reaches 55 degrees Celsius: go here can venture only the bravest traveler.
The Namib Desert
That’s where they filmed the main scenes of the recent hit “Mad Max: fury Road.” The ocean once covered this now arid, unforgiving desert landscape of South-West Africa. Sand, dunes and cliffs — the perfect setting for any post-apocalyptic movie. So here and every year many tourists who want to personally touch the history. Despite the gloomy atmosphere, here prefer to train sandboarder for which high dune — home.
