1. Aokigahara Forest
Located at the base of Mt Fuji, this creepy forest is scattered with dead bodies, and so dense it is dark even at high noon. Aokigahara Forest has been a popular place for suicides since the 1950s, with claims that over 500 people have taken their life here.
As well as finding the occasional skull or noose, visitors to the forest will also see many signs saying, “Life is a precious thing! Please reconsider!” or “Think of your family!”
2. Overtoun Bridge
The Overtoun bridge in Scotland looks like it has come straight from the pages of a fairy tale, moss covered stone and all. However, for reasons that are yet to be explained, six hundred dogs have killed themselves here since the 1960s. No, these aren’t just accidents or particularly dumb dogs. Eyewitnesses have reported the mutts willingly climbed over the parapet and leapt to their death.
3. Sedlec Ossuary
The Seclec Ossuary in the Czech Republic is a chapel… decorated with tens of thousands of HUMAN BONES. In the 13th century, someone sprinkled soil from the Holy Land on the local cemetery, and ever since people all over Europe have clamoured to be buried there. By 1870, when the bones started piling up in corners, the priests decided to create a unique décor for the chapel.
The sprawling, abandoned buildings are made even creepier by the overgrown grounds and broken windows.
5. Isla de las Munecas
Deep in the swamps of Mexico, a small island has become known as Island of the Dolls. Legend has it that there was once a single inhabitant of the island- Don Julian Santana Barrera. One day a mysterious girl drowned just off the island, and shortly after, Don Julian found her doll floating in the water. And then he found another, and then another.
