Mindanao Island, Philippines

From series “Top 11 Dangerous Spots for Adrenaline-Seekers”
Mindanao Island, which is part of the Philippine Islands, has become one of the most dangerous places on the planet by a will of fate. The incredibly beautiful island with white sand beaches and lush tropical vegetation has been at the epicenter of hostilities, so it is currently impossible to visit this amazingly beautiful place. Previously, the island was very popular not only among fans of scenic walks, but also among fans of diving.

The island of Mindanao houses one of the major attractions of the archipelago, Mount Apo, which is the highest mountain in the Philippines. Mindanao is one of the twenty largest islands in the world, with an area of ​​about 97 500 square km. There is the large river of the same name. Picturesque lakes are another important part of the local landscape. Constantly the island is home to more than 22 million people. A large part of the indigenous population is engaged in the development of mineral deposits and agriculture.

Since the 70s of the last century, the major separatist groups act at the island. Their clashes with government troops make a charming island of Mindanao one of the most troubled and dangerous places. Despite the fact that in recent years several peace agreements were signed, fights do not stop on the island. This means that the place continues to be closed for tourists. Travelers and those who still decide to visit it are risking their precious lives. Next - Ahaggar Mountains
