The world is shrinking. What was once reserved only for the “true” adventurer is now considered almost mainstream. The wild, untamed and remote destination still exists, it just requires a little searching. Island Trader Vacations invites travelers to take a look at five of the wildest, untamed travel destinations that are not for the faint of heart.
Lake Titicaca, Bolivia – From the vast Andes deserts to rainforests of the Amazon, Bolivia is one of the most untamed countries in the world. A country more diverse than almost any other in the world, there are still many areas that remain wild and remote such as Lake Titicaca. Lake Titicaca is the highest navigable lake in the world at over 12,000 feet up in the Andes. It straddles the border between Peru and Bolivia. Home to the native Aymara people, this remote destination is considered sacred and is most often visited from the Peruvian side.
Serengeti, East Africa - For anyone afraid of wild animals, the Serengeti is probably not right for them. During the migration, over 1.5 million hoofed mammals make their way across this UNESCO site in massive herds. During this time, thousands of lions and many other predators follow along the way, taking prey as they go. While this destination is much easier to get to than some, it is certainly not for the faint of heart.
Langtang, Nepal – In Asia, the country of Nepal is certainly still wild. Home to some of the highest mountains in the world, Nepal is a hiker's dream. From Kathmandu to the Langtang region, Nepal is known for its mountain treks. This particular area may not see thousands of travelers, but the ones it does are devoted to its beauty, difficulty and wilderness. Not for the faint of heart, the hiking trail in this region goes through gentle valleys and past raging rivers.
Tristan de Cunha – While this amazing island does have a growing number of visitors who make the trek, it is still not for the faint of heart. Extremely remote, this island is considered the most remote in the world. The only inhabited island within the Tristan da Cuha archipelago, it is home to just over 260 residents. Tristan de Cunha remains an active volcano. Isolated and active, the island appears peaceful but there is power just below its beautiful surface making it an untamed destination.
Mutuo County, China – Back to Asia, this is by far the most remote on the list. Not accessible by car, visitors have to climb the Himalayas and cross a suspension bridge on foot in Tibet to reach this small community. Referred to as Tibet’s holiest land, the county is famous for its awe-inspiring beauty and is often referred to as Eden.
