Tough and Nearly Impossible To Reach Places
Here are some of the most remote and/or toughest travel destinations in the world today. So, lets have a look at some of them:
1. Easter Island, Chile
Famous for its giant statues that dot the beaches, Easter Island in Chile is a loner’s wet dream. The place does bring in some good tourism money for Chile but the only way to reach the island that’s 2000 miles off the western coast is via a remote airport.
2. Concordia, Pakistan
The only place on Earth where you can see four 26,000+ ft mountains, Concordia sits on the border of Pakistan & China. Pakistan might not be on your top must-visit list due to security concerns, but in case you visit the country, you might not want to miss the Concordia experience.
3. Patagonia, Argentina – Chile
If you’ve ever wondered how the end of the world looks like, this place might be the closest guess. It has rushing rapids, ancient forests, jagged cliffs, intimidating glaciers and wildlife. This is where South America literally disappears into the sea.
4. Lunar Landscape in interior Iceland
Iceland’s remote interior is a unicorn for most trekkers. Only the most hardy ones dare to traverse through the cold, icy, treeless landscape that resemble the moon’s surface. Who knows, you might even bump into some white walkers.
5. Cape York Peninsula, Australia
The northernmost tip of the Australian continent, Cape York Peninsula is not easy to reach, largely due to bad weather and relentless floods. But if you somehow find yourself in that region, you can witness some of the most untouched parts of the Australian coastline while surrounded by a rich aboriginal culture.
