From 1992-2002 the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park reported 45 major injuries, and 40 deaths.

These gasses can cause asphyxiation, asthma, and heart conditions. \r

4 - Alnwick Gardens - Who doesnt enjoy a nice stroll through a well-manicured proper English garden? You might want to think twice if you visit Alnwick Castle in Northumberland, England. After inheriting the castle, the Duchess of Northumberland decided to revamp the gardens. She thought normal flowers were uninteresting, so instead she planted poisonous ones instead. Thus the Poison Garden was born. Visitors to the garden are far enough away from the plants that they cant smell or touch them, but some have been known to faint from the toxic fumes the plants release into the air. In addition to the poisonous plants, the Duchess also included coca and cannabis plants, to demonstrate how they can be deadly as well. \r

3 - Death Road, Bolivia - Biking down Yungas Road, also known as Death Road, is just about the most dangerous bike rides in the world. Almost 300 bikers are killed annually trying to make it to the end of this narrow, steep road. The road is so dangerous that people from the adjacent town say a prayer before they use it. The drop from the side is 164 feet and those not daunted by their possible demise, speed across the path going around 40 miles per hour. So many people have lost their lives traveling this death road there are graves and shrines lining the road. Not the best sign when youre packing up to take a spin.\r

2 - Skellig Michael - For those unfamiliar with Skellig Michael, you can catch a glimpse of it in the latest Star Wars . It is a very remote island off the coast of Ireland that was settled by monks between 600 and 800 AD. The monks chose this location specifically because it was hard to get to and navigate. Visitors to the island have to endure an hour long boat ride through rough seas to get there, and once they arrive there is no guarantee that they will be able to dock, due to the high waves and choppy water. If they do make it ashore, they will also not find any of the typical tourist amenities you might elsewhere, such as food, water, bathrooms, shelter, or a visitor center. Navigating the island is dangerous as well because in order to get to the site, you have to climb 600 ancient stone steps that wind their way up the side of a mountain, without any handrails. Two deaths have been reported so far. \r
