Why You Can't Visit This Indian Island .
An ancient hunter-gatherer tribe untouched by modernity keeps strangers away.The outside world first made contact with the Sentinelese in 1867, when an Indian merchant ship crashed into the island. Their presence was not well received by the locals, who attacked them until they were rescued by another ship.
