The Most Untouched Places on Earth

There are few places on earth that have not been touched by humans, but there are some out there that do exist! If you want to see these places you’ll have to go through a bit of trouble, however it is worth it in the end...

Here are some of the most unreachable places on our planet...

Methuselah is the oldest tree in the world, unfortunately the location of this tree, which is said to be about 5000 years old, is kept a secret in order to protect it from the hands of humans. This tree is hidden somewhere in the California White Mountains, so if you’re up for a bit of a treasure hunt – good luck!

Tristan da Cunha is a tiny remote island in the South Atlantic Ocean, making it the most remotely inhabited place on the planet. Any civilization is about 3000km away, but that hasn’t stopped people from living there! There are currently about 260 inhabitants whose families have been living there since the 19th century.

Challenger Deep is found 11km underwater! It is the deepest known point on earth and only three people have managed to visit this spot in the Mariana Trench, one of them being James Cameron. The reasons why it is next to impossible to go down there is because the water temperature is close to freezing, it’s pitch black and the water pressure is unbelievably high.

The Svalbard islands are located in the Arctic Ocean and they’re constantly frozen. Here you will find an amazing arctic wilderness full of unique wildlife. Svalbard is also home to the world’s largest secure seed storage, the Global Seed Vault. In case of emergencies the vault has thousands and thousands of different plants stored safely 500 feet into the side of a mountain.
