Chernobyl (Pripyat) Day Tour

The last phase of my almost a month 2nd Wave of Pandemic Adventure
October 16 to October 24, 2020


I only booked this trip just two days before my intended date via this website. It is mandatory to confirm the booking in advance as my name together with my passport is needed to be registered prior arrival. This trip costs $99 for a day trip from 0800H to 2000H. Lunch worth $8 and Geiger Counter rental worth $10 is excluded, I paid total of $117. I paid 20% online and the remaining was in cash during the trip.

Chornobyl is located in Central Ukraine, near the border with Belarus; the location is infamous because of the nuclear meltdown. On April 26th, 1986, during a test to see how much power was needed to keep the No. 4 reactor operating in the event of a blackout, the Chornobyl Nuclear Station overheated and caused a steam explosion, releasing extremely dangerous amounts of radioactive chemicals into the air, which over time contaminated millions of square miles in dozens of European nations. It is estimated that thousands of deaths were directly caused by the meltdown, while still more people suffered from illnesses brought about by radiation exposure. The town closest to the No. 4 reactor was Pripyat, a city of 49,000 founded in 1970 to house workers from Chornobyl. Only about three kilometers from the plant, the entire city was forced to evacuate.
