Are you one of the people who enjoy watching travel bloggers on YouTube? Don’t you get amazed at how beautiful the destinations they go to are? However, when you really look at all of them, they all go to nearly the same places for their videos.
This brings us to the conclusion that there are still places in the world that are not getting traveled. Most of them are too dangerous for us to explore. Some places have weathers that are too harsh for a person to endure, some have pressure for us to survive, and some have volcanoes erupting daily! Can you imagine that?
Here, we’ll feature 10 places on earth that no modern man has explored yet.
1. North Sentinel Island, Bay of Bengal
A remote island in the Bay of Bengal that is between Thailand and India remains untouched until now.
Partly because the place is unique, and because the people living there called Sentinelese rejects people and even kills them sometimes.
2. Namib Desert, Namibia
Along the Atlantic coasts of South Africa, Namibia, and Angola lies the Namib Desert. It is one of the driest places on Earth. In fact, it is so dry that it only ever sees 2 millimeters of water per year. Because of this, it has become home for invertebrates like scorpions and other species who can survive with little to no water.
3. Tsingy De Bemahara National Park, Madagascar
It is a National Park but it can’t be visited. Tsingy De Bemahara is situated in the center of two geographical features that are called Great Tsingy and Little Tsingy. Tsingy means “where no one can walk barefoot.” This National Park used to be made out of plateaus but groundwater made ruts and holes that it became impossible to walk on it.
4. Gangkhar Puensum, Bhutan
The border between Bhutan and China is a snowy mountain that is not allowed to be climbed. At 24,836, it remains the tallest mountain that man hasn’t climbed yet. Aside from the danger of the mountain itself, there are also some spiritual beliefs that are followed that’s why climbing it is impossible.
5. Kamchatka, Russia
The Kamchatka peninsula in Russia is a huge volcano belt that has a whopping 160 volcanoes, 29 of these are active. The highest active volcano is Klyuchebskaya Sopka that is 15,584 ft. Tall.
The whole volcanic belt was formed by a thousand years of eruptions, making it an impossible feat for exploration.
6. The Star Mountains Of Papua New Guinea
The huge mountain range in Papua New Guinea is thought to be the wettest place on Earth. It receives a massive 10,000 mm rain per year.
In fact, it is so wet that there’s not even a safe place to build a weather station.
7. Vale Do Javari, Brazil
A vast area that spans 32,990 sq.M. which is bigger than the whole country of Austria houses 3,000 indigenous people in Brazil. Vale Do Javari is begging protected by the Brazilian government as they restrict people from exploring the area that houses 14 different tribes of natives.
8. Sakha Republic, Russia
An area that is basically like a freezing desert above the Arctic Circle remains one of the eighth largest territories in the entire world. The fact that it is more than a million sq.M. makes it just slightly smaller than India.
Because of the temperature that plays around -46 degrees during winter, it is the home Verkhoyansk Range which is the coldest area in the northern hemisphere.
9. Yucatan Cenotes, Mexico
Cenotes are natural sinkholes and pits and are scattered all throughout the Yucatan peninsula. These caves may look like the perfect travel destination but they are dangerous.
Sometimes it is hard to locate the entrance, much more navigate through it.
10. Mariana Trench, Pacific Ocean
The deepest “scar” of the Earth lies just by the East of the Philippines may be the most inaccessible place on our planet. It is so deep that even if you place the entire Mt. Everest inside it, its tip won’t even reach the surface.
The pressure of the water inside makes it impossible even for sea creatures to live there.
Mankind loves to explore, so I’m sure they (we) will figure out a way to visit these places. Somehow, someday.
