10 of the Most Terrifying Places on Earth

These aren’t the places you see on postcards or in calendars. They’re not the place to propose to your partner, be alone at night, or frankly, be alone at any time of the day.

They’re the kinds of places you see on ghost hunting TV shows, Discovery Channel documentaries, the cover of National Geographic magazines and, of course, in the newspapers if they claim another human life.
