However, the public warned him as they believed that anyone who disturbs the Tut’s cave will be doomed forever. The Englishman didn’t believe them and continue excavations and once he opened the tomb, a cobra appeared in his home and killed his pet. Months later, the man himself died from a mosquito bite.

Many people after Lord Carnarvon tried to do the same but ended up dying in the most horrible ways. So, if you are willing to risk the curse, you can always visit the tomb!
