Our planet earth is filled with awe-inspiring beauty. But most of these places are fundamentally untouched. There are various geopolitical and social constraints that prevent us from enjoying these least explored beautiful places on planet earth. From unexplored ancient caves and the wilderness of forests to deep trenches, these places have remained untouched.
But the issue is that most travel enthusiasts are too afraid to take the risk of exploring these places. Why? Simply because they are either away from the reach of human beings. Or, there are geopolitical or social constraints that are keeping us away from these places.
In this article, we will explore six places on our planet earth that are yet to be explored. Humanity has failed to explore these because of several constraints.
Here are the top 6 untouched places on the planet earth that are yet to be explored:
The Amazon Forest
Located in Northwestern Brazil, the Amazon Rainforest is one of the least explored places on earth. This wild forest, popularly known for its unending rainfall, is home to at least 12 million species. Although scientists have explored some areas of the Amazon Rainforest, a vast majority of this barren land remains untouched.
However, it is essential to note here that scientists have been interested in exploring this world’s largest rainforest. And they have explored some areas of the jungle. But a vast area of this rainforest is left untouched. Some areas are so remote that they are inaccessible to scientists. This, in turn, adds to the mystery of the Amazon’s rainforest.
Africa’s Sahara Desert
Another least explored place on our planet earth is the Sahara Desert of Africa. Stretched over an impressive 9,200,000 square kilometers, the Sahara Desert is a mysterious place on earth that is yet to be explored completely. Fair enough, scientists have explored some areas of the world’s largest desert. But because most of the desert is barren land and has a harsh climate, the desert’s areas are untouched.
Thus, exploring the Sahara Desert is a challenging task for thrill-seekers. Since the climate in the Sahara Desert is extraordinarily harsh, and the land is barren, it is risky to explore it completely.
Other Untouched Places on Earth
While the Sahara Desert of Africa and the Amazon Rainforest of Brazil remain on the top list of least explored places, here are some other untouched places that need to be explored:
- The Mariana Trench (2550 km in length and 70 km in width)
- South Africa’s Namib Desert (After the Sahara Desert, the second-largest desert in the world)
- The Kaieteur Falls (World's most mysterious fall)
- Hang Son Doong Cave of Vietnam
