The Most Remote Places In The World

Magazine Unusual places The Most Remote Places In The World

One of the most remote places in the world is the volcanic island of Tristan da Cunha in the South Atlantic. It is about 2,400 kilometers away from the Republic of South Africa. Tristan is officially the most remote settlement in the world.

If you feel that this is not far away from the rest of the world, you can visit Point Nemo’s oceanic inaccessibility. This point is 2,689 kilometers from the nearest mainland. Point Nemo, translated from the Latin “nobody”, was named after the eponymous character from the famous novels by Jules Verne “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” and “Mysterious Island”, writes Newsweek. Nemo is an inaccessible point and is literally in the middle of the ocean, so the journey takes 15 days and ten hours. Since the Pole of Inaccessibility is only a description of an imaginary point in the world, there are many such poles. One of them is the South Pole. Soviet researchers have left there some measuring instruments. In 2007 the researchers visited the abandoned station and found out that only the bust of Lenin was visible and the rest of the station was buried under several meters of snow.

Besides the oceanic pole there is also the continental pole of inaccessibility. As for the Eurasian mainland, technically there are two. One is located in central Spain and is the Pole of Inaccessibility for the Iberian Peninsula, while the other Pole of Inaccessibility is located in northwest China near the border with Kazakhstan. It is located up to 2,645 kilometers from the nearest sea. The central point of Asia is also nearby, and a corresponding monument has been erected there.
