There are times when some people want to enjoy solitude. They, therefore, move far away from others and live in faraway places. Some of these places later become open however, the living conditions at these places still make the area unknown. In this write-up, we will be looking at the top 5 remote places on earth you might not have heard of before. Ride with me and let’s go.
Tristan Da Cunha, South Atlantic Ocean
Tristan Da Cunha is known to be the remotest location on earth. It is about 1700 miles from South Africa. This place is actually a volcanic island been inhabited by humans. The land of Tristan Da Cunha extends for only 38 square miles.
This area is a British Overseas territory and the population is about 250. There is no airport in this area and the only way to reach this place takes about 3 weeks on the sea. This indicates that people are very unlikely to visit Tristan Da Cunha because of the distance.
Easter Island, Chile
Easter Island is about 2200 miles away from the Coast of Chile though it’s a part of Chile. This particular island is famous for its 887 monolithic statues, referred to as “moai”. The statues were believed to be carved out by the then inhabitants between 1250 and 1500 C.E. Those inhabitants were called the “Rapa Nui”. Today, there are about 8000 people who have made their homes on Easter Island.
This particular island is located between New Zealand and Antarctica. Macquarie Island is mainly inhabited by scientists. One wonderous thing about this island is that, during the breeding season, a lot of white-chested penguins of about millions gather there.
Cape York Peninsula, Australia
The Cape York Peninsula is owned by five indigenous communities and also manages its tourism in the area. It is also about a 28-hour drive from Cairns, and visitors will need a car to get to the location. Most of the rivers in the northernmost point of Australia are a zone for crocodiles. People also go there for fishing.
The last remote location we will look at has no direct route. The only way to get to Barrow is by taking a plane from Anchorage. As a result of the harsh condition, the standard of living is very high. Strangely, the winter at this location can go for at least 65 straight days of darkness.
So, if you are looking for a place you can spend some time alone away from others, you can choose any of the above-mentioned areas. Thanks for reading.
