How Far?

by Dick Mac

Thanks to modern modes of tranportation, river networks, and roads cut through the rain forest, most of the planet is accessible within two days of travel.

Thanks to a study by the European Commission's Joint Research Centre and the World Bank, this map has been created to show the least accessible places on the planet.

Top of the list: Tibet, where some locations can take up to three weeks to reach (two of those weeks by foot)!
