dangerousAdventurous travelers pride themselves on visiting destinations that are often the beaten path. Places so remote and challenge that few others travelers are willing to venture there. They spend their vacation time wandering the Mongol Steppe, backpacking deep into the Himalaya, or exploring Chile’s Atacama Desert for instance. They love places that are physically and mentally challenging, often reveling in the solitude that comes with visiting those hidden corners of the globe.

Places that aren’t just challenging, but down right inhospitable and potentially deadly to visitors. With that in mind, here are the 10 most dangerous travel destinations on Earth.
