There aren’t many places on our good Earth that are (practically) untouched by humans, but they do still exist. If you want to visit some of them, you have to overcome many obstacles, but it is still possible. Here is a list of some of those unreachable, yet mesmerizing places on Earth.

If you want to visit the world’s oldest tree, you can’t. Methuselah is hidden somewhere in California White Mountains and is about five thousand years old. Scientists keep its exact location a secret, in order to prevent humans from destroying it.

Tristan da Cunha is the most remotely inhabited place on Earth. This small archipelago in the south Atlantic is in any direction about 2,000 miles away from civilization. About 270 people are currently living there, and all of the families have been there since the nineteenth century.

Challenger Deep in the Mariana Trench is the deepest place on the planet, and it can be found seven miles underwater. Only three people have ever visited this dark spot of the Pacific Ocean, and one of them is James Cameron, Oscar winning filmmaker. The water temperature in Challenger Deep is close to freezing, it’s pitch dark and the water pressure is mind boggling eight tons per square inch, which is thousand times more than on the sea surface.

Norwegian Svalbard is located right next to the Arctic Circle, and it resides in constant permafrost. This is also the home of the Global Seed Vault, which is keeping safe most of the world plants, in case of a worldwide catastrophe. In the vault you can find over four thousand different plants, and if you wish to see it, you can simply hop onto the plane from Oslo, but know that Svalbard doesn’t have your regular day and night, but it resides in either constant darkness or daylight for months on end.
