‘A distant darkness spread as far as the eyes can see, a deafening silence but with an eerie tone, the crisp and chilly atmosphere and a sense of some mysterious, larger-than-life being breathing the same air’. Spine chilling right? These kinds of spine chilling places do actually exist around us. Just like an adventurous soul is fascinated to experience the Northern Lights or the bioluminescent sea, some would love to get a first-hand experience of these spooky places to visit. 

There are many of these uber-mysterious and scary places around the world. Put your Halloween 2023 plans on the next gear and learn about these spine chilling places on Earth for your next spooky adventure. 

1. Pripyat, Ukraine

For those not living under a rock, you might be well aware of the popular HBO series ‘Chernobyl’. In 1986, the devastating Chernobyl nuclear station radiation blanketed the entire town of Pripyat in Ukraine. Almost 1000 residents died at that time while the rest were immediately evacuated. Since then it has been said to be not only a ghost city but one of the most spine chilling places on Earth. 

The moment you step in you will be hit by the eerie emptiness of the area. The Ferris Wheel at the Pripyat Amusement Park is going to leave you with an unnerving feeling. Nothing can prepare you for the abandoned and ashy houses, schools, hospitals and other complexes, looking no less than a post-apocalyptic world. The radiation still lingers around the town along with a flourishing population of wild animals. If you would love to explore this spooky piece of history, it is best advised to opt for a guided tour for your safety. 

Ukraine is much more than these abandoned ruins. For those who love the frosty Arctic winters, you must visit the country with our Ukraine Tour Packages. Apply for Ukraine Tourist Visa for as less as INR 9,299/-. 

2. Snake Island, Brazil

Next on the list of spine chilling places is Sao Paulo’s Snake Island. It does not always have to be ghosts to make it one of the most terrifying places to visit. This Snake Island is a slithering hell as it officially has the largest snake population concentrated in one place, i.e. 5 snakes per square metre. The snakes have evolved to hunt their prey quicker with their 5-times stronger venom. 

Doesn’t matter how big of a daredevil you are in real life, you cannot explore Snake Island as it is banned by the Brazilian government.

3. ‘The Darvaza Crater’ or ‘Gateway to Hell’, Turkmenistan

A literal fiery pit, the Darwaza Crater in Turkmenistan looks like a literal gateway to hell. The moment you reach this remote location you will yourself understand why it is called so. What may look like a surreal sight has to be one of the freakiest places on Earth. 

However, this is not some magical or mysterious occurrence. In 1971, Soviet geologists looking for oil had one of their drilling rigs fall into a pit of natural gas. To avoid a bigger disaster, they set the pit on fire and since then the fire in it has been burning continuously. The glistening beauty of the Darvaza Crater is a veritable tourist attraction for those who don’t fear. Visit the crater at nighttime to get the best view. 

Turkmenistan is one of the most underrated countries in the world, in the aspect of tourism as well as culture. Explore it with our affordable Turkmenistan Tour Packages as well as a Turkmenistan Visa for Indians within just 10 to 12 days. 

4. Bhangarh Fort, India

One of the spine chilling places close to home is the Bhangarh Fort in Rajasthan’s Alwar district. The village that once buzzed with flourishing settlements is now just rampant ruins with a spooky atmosphere. According to history, several bizarre events have led the town to be one of the most haunted places on Earth. While the fort can be visited in the morning, it is completely forbidden to visit it after sunset and before sunrise. For the curious minds who have done so, some went missing while some got seriously sick. 

While the Bhangarh Fort is one eerie tourist spot in Rajasthan, you cannot miss the other breathtaking tourist locations with our affordable Rajasthan Tour Packages. Plan your trip and get great deals on cheap hotel bookings as well as cheap flight bookings to Rajasthan.

Poveglia Island’s spooky story is no less than a horror movie story. In the 1920s, the island was a mental asylum where several patients were brutally tortured and in turn, even the doctor committed suicide. It is believed that the tortured patients still haunt the island grounds. Plans for rebuilding the island have not been successful over the years. Even though it is not advisable to visit Poveglia islands, you can ask a boat operator in Venice if they will take you there. However, they will advise you to change your mind or complete the trip before it gets dark. 

Keeping aside this haunted island, Italy has some of the most stunning tourist locations in the world. Explore the glorious country of Italy with our Italy Tour Packages. Additionally, the Schengen Visa Online (Italy Visa) lets you explore 25 additional countries along with Italy. 

6. Nagoro, Japan

Imagine a place where life-sized dolls have outnumbered the living that too by a staggering 10:1 ratio. Long ago, Nagoro’s local toymaker started making dolls for those who passed away in the town. These dolls were placed in animated-like positions all around the town. 

If you are a fan of such abnormalities, you must visit Japan soon. Get yourself a Japan Visa online in just 1 week. 

7. The Catacombs, Paris

What can be more freaky than seeing a skeleton right? Imagine an eerie network of caves and tunnels filled with the bones of almost 6 million people. This is one of the most spine chilling places and runs even deeper than the metro and sewer system of Paris. The bizarre part is that a small part of these haunted catacombs is open for the public to explore but it is strictly advised to take a guided tour. 

While the Catacombs of Paris are intriguing they are not the most prominent tourist attractions. Visit Paris to check out its best-rated tourist spots like the Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum, Notre Dame Cathedral, Arch de Triomphe, Palais Garnier, etc. 

8. Gonjiam Psychiatric Hospital, South Korea

The Gonjiam Psychiatric Hospital in South Korea’s Gyeonggi province is one of the haunted locations due to the story attached to it. Long ago patients mysteriously started dying at this hospital, forcing them to close and abandon it. All the beds, tables, even wire fences and examination chairs were left. Now it projects one of the creepiest visuals with rusty barricades and shady corridors which are said to be haunted by spirits of the tormented patients. Many have also experienced shrills and scratching noises from the corridors. Under government guidelines, the hospital is technically closed to the public. 

Well, these were some of the spine chilling places on Earth, not meant for the faint-hearted. Some of these places are so haunted that not only humans are barred from entering but there are no human settlements within a considerable distance. 

Also if you do not want to embark on a spooky adventure, the winter season brings along a lot of special International Holiday Packages at the lowest prices. Simply take the help of a trusted travel agency to help with your travel needs and focus on enjoying the trip.
