"Amid the untouched beauty of Alaska's varying landscape, a mystery lingers. Because people seem to go missing at an eerily high rate, a large section of the state has come to be called Alaska's Bermuda Triangle. Planes go down, hikers go missing and Alaskan residents and tourists seem to vanish into the largely untouched backdrop.

The so-called Bermuda Triangle slices through four of the state's regions, from the southeastern wilderness and fjords to the interior tundra and up to the arctic mountain ranges. Its points include the large swath of land from Juneau and Yakutat in the southeast, the Barrow mountain range in the north, and Anchorage in the center of the state."

Alaska is some very, very harsh country for the most part. There have been reports that many drunken individuals who wander off go missing, as expected they probably freeze to death face first in a snowbank.

But it is hard to grasp just how inhospitable Alaska can be in the off season, so it's not very surprising that things disappear up there. Now when planes disappear on a clear day with perfect visibility and radio/radar contact, that is a bit suspicious.

Thanks for sharing this. This is the first time I heard about a triangle in Alaska.

I'm not sure its just the triangle that makes people disappear. People go missing all around the state. Theres more to it than that. I live in the rural part of Alaska so I know a bit about this stuff. One of the explanations is what we call the anakuqs (shamans) and their grave sites.

My father knows his way around these parts very well, like the back of his hand so to say. He usually help out with Search and Rescue too when there are missing people on the trails. He almost never make it home one time. He was near a shamans gravesite, he didnt know it at the time, there was this place he got around to and couldnt recognize. Then he came to realize, yes he got lost. The place he called "no mans land, nothing but rolling hills and mountains." When he got home, around the time when the sun sets and it gets dark, he found out that it was a work of a shamans grave, not one but three. There is also a jade house belonging to one of the shamans near those grave sites and thats why he got lost. I guess the shamans didnt want him to discover that jade house. My dad knows better than to mess around with shaman graves, let alone a jade house belonging to a shaman, cause he knows what can happen if he does.

I lived in Alaska....wanna know why people go missing? Not because of some mysterious thing....but because most of Alaska is sooooooooooo remote that it is incredibly easy to go missing and never be found. Seriously. People go on walks unprepared (no compass, no weapons, no survival skills, etc etc)....there are dangerous animals out there....cell activity is non existant in many many areas....and there are not trails everywhere. People love to go off the trails and wander...................and get lost.....and probably never found.

I cant tell you how many walks I went on (which you MUST have a weapon in hand to do so) and I literally had no signal on my phone for HOURS. If I were to die, id never be found probably and be eaten by animals!

As far as planes go....it is a very dangerous climate for planes too....ever watch "Flying Alaska"? If not, do so...you will see how difficult of a job it is flying around that state....

And doesnt the terrain all look the same depending on if your in a snowy area? Making it hard to get points of reference?

I'm currently watching this doc on TV about The Alaskan Triangle... very interesting situation where myth seems to make more sense than science.
