Where NOT To Meet - 6 Scariest Meeting Places Throughout History

The scariest meeting places on earth? Can a meeting place REALLY be scary? You bet. 

There are many reason that a place can be deemed scary. It's history, it's atmosphere or just the downright creepy nature of it's surroundings. This is a list of what we think are some of the scariest places around the world to meet someone.

6. Door To Hell, Turkmenistan

After meeting above what they thought would be a rich oil field, Soviet engineers constructed a drilling rig which soon collapsed as they had mistakenly built it upon a gas deposit. After another meeting at the site of the collapse, the engineers decided the best course of action would be to burn off the gas. Estimating it would burn off in a few weeks, it's now four decades later and the fire is still burning. Adding to the fearsome appearance of the burning gas field, spiders are reportedly attracted to the heat and throw themselves in to it in their thousands.

5. Bhangarh Fort, India

Considered one the most haunted places in India, Bhangarh Fort is the subject of gruesome legend and reported paranormal activity. Local lore states that before his death a dark wizard cursed the Fort and all 10, 000 inhabitants with death. Not longer after his proclamation, the city was invaded and no one was spared. Compounding the spooky atmosphere, The Archaeological Survey of India has erected signs on the fort gate that it is prohibited for tourists to stay inside the fort area after sunset and before sunrise. Locals in the area say anyone who has tried to stay inside after sunset was never found

4. The Catacombs, Paris

Beneath the beautiful city of Paris there is a truly spooky place to meet. Some six million skeletons and thousands of unmarked crypts, more than 3 times the population of the city above. There are miles and miles of unmapped pitch black tunnels which would be so easy to get lost in. These seemingly endless labyrinthine tunnels are also said to absorb sound, making it unlikely anyone would hear your cries.

3. Sacred Valley Skylodge, Peru

Not frightening in a way we've shown yet, but this is definitely a place that is not for the faint of heart. Suspended above the Sacred Valley in Peru there is Skylodge, the world’s first hanging lodge, providing some of the most spectacular and frightening, depending on how you feel about heights, views of the Andes mountains.

 Getting to the pods are now mean feat either. With the options of scaling a 400m tall ladder or the alternative of heading up a mountain trail and then using a zip-line to zoom over chasms on your way to the pods. Coming back down from the lodge is equally as thrilling with the options of taking a zip-line or rappelling back down to terra firma.

2. The Hellfire Club, Dublin

Located on Montpelier Hill is the infamous Hellfire Club, originally constructed as a hunting lodge, was soon re-purposed for much more sinister meetings.

The members of The Hellfire Club purportedly used the lodge for holding black masses, and it is widely believed that animal and allegedly human sacrifices took place within In particular, they were known to sacrifice cats.

The members also left a chair vacant at each gathering for the Devil, who would allegedly visit in his loyal followers in the lodge, and even today many visitors claim they can get the smell of brimstone.  

1. Joint Security Area, North/South Korea

The Joint Security Area is more commonly known as the Korean Demilitarized Zone and is definitely one of the scariest meeting places in the world. This area marks the line separates North and South Korea.

Being at the centre of one of the world's most tense military and political fault lines, the DMZ has hosted numerous interactions between the North and South, including over 750 overt acts of violence.  Both sides stand ready to engage in war at a moments notice. Visitors are given strict instructions on how to behave once at the DMZ lest they antagonize either side.  

There is one room which lies exactly half way between both North and South Korea, and contains 1 soldier from each army. Opposing parties meet in this room to discuss peace agreements
