1. The Bermuda Triangle 百慕大三角
We start with the granddaddy of all mysterious locations, the Bermuda Triangle. This stretch of ocean, spanning from South Florida to Puerto Rico to Bermuda, has been the site of multiple disappearances over the years, including the vanishing of the USS Cyclops with 309 crewmen aboard in 1918. Both planes and ships have gone missing, never to be recovered.
2. The Michigan Triangle 密歇根三角

Perhaps the most famous is Northwest Airlines Flight 2501, which in 1950 flowing into the triangle with 58 passengers and never emerged.
3. The Bennington Triangle 本宁顿三角
Yet another triangle, though this one is landlocked. The Bennington Triangle, located in southwestern Vermont, marks the last known location of five people who went missing between 1945 and 1950. The most bizarre of the five was the vanishing of a man who was riding a moving bus, who disappeared without anyone noticing. The people who vanished ranged in age from an 8 year-old boy to a 74 year-old woman.
4. The Nevada Triangle 内华达三角
Our final triangular entry on the list, the Nevada Triangle marks a 25,000 square mile stretch of desert and mountains in the state of Nevada. This desolate stretch is in the vicinity of the notorious Area 51 military zone, and has been the site of a number of disappearances. The most famous is fairly recent, when famed aviator and adventurer Steve Fossett in 2007. Fossett flew into the triangle in a small plane and vanished without a trace, despite a massive search effort.
5. Roanoke Colony 罗阿诺克岛殖民地
Stretching back in time to the beginning of European colonization of the New World, Roanoke is one of the earliest recorded mysterious disappearances. The colony was founded by English colonists in 1585. The governor of the colony sailed back to England to get more supplies, but upon concluding their return travel three years later, the colony was abandoned. Only the word ‘CROATOAN’, the name of a tribe of local native Americans, etched into a tree gave any indication as to what might have happened to the colony.
6. The Sargasso Sea 马尾藻海
The Sargasso Sea lies in the Atlantic ocean, and is the site of one of the most famous ghost ships in recorded history. The Mary Celeste was discovered in 1872, completely deserted. The ship still carried abundant fuel and food, with no indication as to where the crew went or what happened to them.
