10 Harshest Uninhabitable Places on Earth

From impossible pools of sulfur, to gnarly volcanic wastelands, here are 10 Harshest Uninhabitable Places on Earth Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 10. Snake Island 9. Death Valley 8. Antipodes Islands 7. Minqin County, China 6. Litla Dimun 5. Australian Outback If you think you got what it take to survive in the harsh australian desert, then you dare you to try to live in the Australian outback for a few weeks on your own and see how it goes. The center of eastern australia, seems to completely lack resources unless you’re looking for snakes, toxic chemicals, or uranium. This is home to Lake Disappointment, which really doesn’t seem to inviting. Here in this photo we see a that was once used to store uranium, left in the outback. (What Photo?) So you really you shouldn’t get your hopes up about living here. The lake is rather salty and someone is probably disappointed :( Some people tried to settle in wittenoom Australia when an extremely large amount of blue asbestos was discovered.This however, didn’t turn out so great and didn’t know exactly how extremely toxic blue asbestos truly was. 4. Montserrat A small little island in the Caribbean would seem like a great place to inhabit with plenty of lush forests and black sand beaches. But the positive things about Montserrat seem to end there and it’s home to an extremely active volcano, making a majority of it completely uninhabitable! The capital city of Plymouth was completely destroyed after a volcanic eruption happened here and you can see the destruction for yourself on google maps! Other places like richmond hills to the north were abandoned shortly after. It’s certainly not a welcoming view, seeing a volcano steaming from gases relentlessly from the peak. Here in this photo from the 1990’s we see the capital of the British overseas territory, completely draped in ash. To this day, the area surrounding Soufriere Hills, is covered in sharp volcanic glass and not the fine white sands you’d prefer to see in the Caribbean. Very few have returned to the island after the eruption but they should be fearing for their lives. 3. Siberia (Pronounced Wrong) If you dare to venture off into the far east of Russia, you will come across some of the most brutal conditions on the face on the planet. The siberian winter is no joke folks and it has the power to turn you into a popsicle in a matter of hours. The population density of this massive chunk of land is about 3 inhabitants per kilometer making it the most sparsely populated region in the world and for good reason. You certainly do not want to end up in a work camp here!The green forests might seem inviting, but you can safely bet your money, they will completely covered in snow by the time october comes. Some villages manage to reach temperatures -67 degrees celsius or -89 degrees fahrenheit! If the extreme cold doesn’t get you, a bear most likely will! Some claim that the road that while constructing the M56 highway through siberia, it earned the nickname “the highway of bones” due to the sheer amount of lives lost from the frigid conditions here. 2. Danakil Depression We mentioned this place briefly in our most color places video but this is seriously not a place you want to move to! Ethiopia is already a difficult place to live and then you add places like Dallol to the mix and you wonder how anyone can actually survive here! With an average high of 121 degrees in July, people who come to this region just want to get a few things and get the heck out! There used to be a settlement in this location but it was abandoned after mining a few tons of salt.The landscapes of this place are like something from an entirely different world. The Dallol sulphur springs emit a horrendous odor and make up part of Ethiopia’s Danakil Depression. Possibly the lowest and hottest place on earth, the water below the earth is extremely salty, toxic and hot. You can probably make a trip here to check it out but don’t plan on staying long! 1 Antarctica Antarctica is the only continent on Earth that has no permanent residence and it’s completely uninhabitable. No towns, no cities, no commercial industries just a few scientific research stations were people some how manage to tough out the extremely harsh conditions for a few weeks then get the heck out! Here in this photo we see a few heavily vehicles left at Oasis Station originally built by the Soviets. If the Russians can’t handle the cold no one can, except for the penguins! Trying to establish any kind of base here is nearly impossible and there’s still equipment left over from those who dared settling on this continent. Not only is it cold, it’s also the the windiest place on earth on average. While there is some fresh water here, it’s all frozen or buried under miles of ice! Only 11 people have actually been born on antarctica but don’t expecting it to become permanently populated anytime soon.

"Ethiopia is already a difficult place to live... you wonder how anyone can survive in this country". Eh? Apart from 100-odd million people (and rising faaaast) not in the Denakil and the desert, who have year-round mild temperatures, beautiful pastures, rolling hills and forests, and the Blue Nile. And Addis Ababa...

.In addition to the horrible pronouncing, the claim you make about the castaway hut on the Antipodes is also false. As the still shot you use is from the wiki page on the island (with the man in front and all) I would have thought you would have read the information on it. It wasn't built by survivors. A number of castaway depots were built and stocked with supplies on deserted islands around the southern ocean in the late 19th century to allow shipwrecked sailors to survive the very harsh conditions present on the sub Antarctic islands. As obvious from the photo, these were prefabricated buildings which put together on location.

Been to Death Valley in the winter. A great place. Natural hot springs and sand dunes. You can drive the max too as there are few police or other people. Still there is a small town there. Just don't go in the summer.

Snake island they need to stray poison on it by air plan off and on for two years till they are sure all the snakes are dead even those that may hatch later. Then give about five years for the natural ran and weather to wash away the poison then it will be ready for people.

There are towns in Death Valley, I think that means it's inhabitable.

What, Death Valley is “ uninhabitable”? At the hottest heart of death Valley lies hotels, restaurants, retail stores, a golf courses, swimming pools, gas stations, a mobile home park and trailer park. Your list is busted!

Siberia is not the most sparsely populated region in the world. It doesn’t even make the top 10. Greenland with a density of 0.03 people/sq km is the least densely populated country on earth.

You should redo Antarctica. There have been at least a couple multi national scientific bases there, and I believe one built fairly recent that has a modular design that is able to raise so far up above the newer snow drifts as it builds up.

It is still theoretically possible to inhabit Antarctica, but getting supplies on or off the continent, but a need for a stable energy source to keep the lights on, plus any form of agriculture, makes this idea all but impossible.
