The remotest place on Earth

Friday, January 29, 2010

tibet_from_visualePeople are everywhere these days, but if you really want to “get away from it all” , the remotest place on Earth, aside from Antarctica, turns out to be Tibet.  This from a New Scientist article (and related blog post) that explores travel times in the global accessibility map we discussed in a blog post last year.  The “remotest point on Earth”, 34.7°N, 85.7°E, apparently takes a day by car and 20 days on foot from Lhasa.  Or maybe you’d rather visit the “wildest” place on Earth- there are maps that can help you get there as well.

For now, I’ll stick with getting back to nature here in my urban anthrome, and save a bit of carbon.
