There are a number of sites that, for security, legal or scientific reasons, are not open to the general public.
1. Svalbard Global Seed Vault (Norway)
In the event of a disaster, people and animals and plants facing extinction, this place will be the savior of humanity.
Svalbard Global Seed Vault is like a seed bank, completed in 2008 in Norway. If people need to replant everything from scratch, they can use the seeds stored here.
The seed bank is located in Spitsbergen, Svalbard – an archipelago in the Arctic, 1,300km from the nearby sandstone mountains. With an altitude of 130m above sea level, this place is convenient for storing dry seeds. Meanwhile, the surrounding permafrost also helps preserve the hundreds of thousands of specimens stored in the vault.
Although the seeds can be kept as safe as possible, the average person is not allowed to enter. There is a very tight security system here, to ensure that the seeds last for thousands of years.
2. Ilha da Queimada Island (Brazil)
Ilha da Queimada Island, also known as Snake Island, is 43 hectares wide, located off the coast of Brazil. This is not the ideal location for an outing.
There are hundreds of different species of venomous snakes living here. These venomous snakes are so dangerous that a single bite can stop predators from moving.
For every m2 there are about 1-5 snakes on the island. Therefore, to ensure the safety of the people, the Brazilian government forbids anyone from setting foot on this island.
The only exception is scientific researchers, but they are required to be accompanied by a doctor when on the island.
3. Lascaux Cave (France)
Lascaux Cave was discovered by accident in 1940 by four teenagers while searching for their lost pet dog. Then they followed the dog and found a cave with beautiful murals. It is estimated that these deer and horse paintings date back to about 17,000 years ago.
It can be said that this is one of the rare places with the best preserved prehistoric paintings ever discovered. Among them, there are about 600 paintings and 1000 sculptures.
Eight years later, Lascaux Cave was open to the public. However, in 1963, this place was closed because mold started appearing on the walls of the cave.
According to scientists, mold can destroy all the paintings here. Before that, the cave was found in a sealed state. However, after being discovered, the outside air and human contact caused some fungi to grow quickly.
For that reason, this cave is strictly limited in the number of visitors who can enter the cave. Today, people have built a replica next to it so that people can freely visit and explore the ancient world.
4. Ayers Rock (Australia)
Ayers Rock also known as Uluru is located in a remote location in Australia. This place used to be a tourist attraction travel for several years. But recently, it was added to the list of restricted places for tourists.
Previously, despite the heat reaching 47 degrees Celsius in the summer, tourists still tried to climb the 348m high mountain. The journey to conquer this rocky mountain is extremely difficult.
Uluru is a very sacred place for the Anangu people. They are the guardians of this huge rocky mountain. They have long wanted tourists to stop climbing this mountain.
In the end, their wish was supported by the Uluru National Park Board – Kata Tjuta. In 2017, a decision to ban tourists from climbing Uluru was issued.
On October 25, 2019, the last day people were allowed to climb Mount Uluru before the ban took effect, tourists lined up in an extremely long line.
Tourists can still go to Uluru – Kata Tjuta National Park but can only stand and look at the sacred mountain, but never step foot on it again.
