Some people may believe that the whole world has been explored by now. These people will be surprised to know that there are still places on earth where humans haven’t stepped into due to the difficulty of reaching them and also because of the harsh climatic conditions that exist in such regions.
Here are top 10 places on earth that remained unexplored by humans. These are the places that you almost certainly never get to go to even if you really wanted to.
- The Siberian Sakha Republic
This vast piece of land covers 20% of Russia making it larger than Argentina and a little smaller than India. This region is unexplored only because of its extreme conditions of weather and its average temperature is -40degree F. This non-human friendly piece of land is mostly permafrost that is even the soil is frozen. It is so cold that the ground is frozen solid all the time but is not even ice.
- Vale do Javari, Brazil
This place refers to the place that no modern civilization has ever set foot in. There are not very many groups worldwide which remained out of contact in the 21st century, of these groups of people, 14 groups with an estimated of 3000 indigenous people live in the Vale do Javari.
You might think that there is no risk taking a tour to this beautiful land of tribes, right? If you try doing this, get ready to feel the air of the jail because the Brazil government has made entering into this area illegal. They themselves keep track and look after them from being in the air. Most surprisingly, the people of this area has never witnessed cars, electricity or any other modern gadgets. They live the way all humans did before the agricultural revolution and the birth of modern civilization.

This region is one of the aridest one in the world that it gets only 2 mm of rain on an average every year. A few small indigenous groups of humans also live in the desert. All you could see here is nothing other than soil, desert animals and a minimal amount of water.
- North Sentinel Island
North Sentinel Island has been ranked the top in the list and is strongly advised against visiting this island. It’s not dangerous because of its climate or atmospheric conditions. It is located in the Bay of Bengal only under Indian government left undisturbed.
