Despite the years and years of exploration and adventure by humans to reach the furthest and most inaccessible areas of the world, there are still incredible places unexplored by the masses. Due to uninhabitability, hostile terrains, and even unwelcoming inhabitants, many places of earth are yet to be properly explored. From remote bays that haven’t seen visitors for thousands of years to icy deserts considered almost unlivable, let’s take a look at just some of the most unexplored places on earth.
North Sentinel Island, Bay of Bengal
The North Sentinel Island in the Bay of Bengal is arguably one of the most isolated places on earth, both through remote location and inaccessible population. The small island of around 60 square km is located off the Norwest coast of Indonesia and has been far from explored.
Its inhabitants, the Sentinelese, have made sure that their home has been practically unvisited for nearly 60,000 years. Having always practiced isolation, the Sentinelese tribe have ensured the island remains solitary and untouched by outside contact through threatening and violent means. For many venturing to the island, they have been met with vicious attacks meaning few have ever stepped foot on land. One missionary, John Allen Chau, was even killed by the tribe after travelling to the remote bay. Now often classed as the ‘most dangerous islands in the world’, India has made it illegal for its citizens to visit North Sentinel Island or contact its people, and it remains one of the most unexplored places in the world.
