Top 10 Most Dangerous Places in the World
Bloody Pond Japan
One of the most famous places in Japan, Bloody Lake is located near the Japanese city of Beppu. The color of the water of this lake is red like blood. Hence it is known as Bloody Pond. Red color of water is due to excessive presence of iron and salt in its bottom. Here the water temperature remains at 194 Fahrenheit and continues to evaporate. Seeing this, the view of this lake seems like the blood is boiling here. People keep a distance from it and call it the ‘Gate of Hell’.
Lake Kivu Rwanda
Lake Kivu is located on the African continent between the borders of the Democratic Republic of Congo and Rwanda. This is a famous lake in Africa. A population of around 20 lakhs lives around it. Methane gas is abundant in the water of this lake, which makes it very scary. If its water forms a cloud, it will also contain toxic methane gas and if this cloud rains in the surrounding residential areas, it will affect the lives of the people living there. Scientists believe that it is necessary to remove methane gas from this lake to save the lives of the people here. Tests and efforts are being made in this direction. In the test, the possibility of using this methane gas in power generation has also been created. Barhalal, the scientists’ efforts are ongoing.
Mount Merapi is an active volcano located on the border of Central Java and Indonesia. It is considered to be the most active volcano not only in Indonesia, but also in the world. It has been continuously active since the year 1945. In 2010, a major eruption killed 300 people and displaced more than 280,000 people. Even in the absence of an eruption, the volcano has been spewing a lot of smoke, which can be seen up to 2 miles into the sky.
