The Top Five Exotic Travel Destinations Least Touched by Man

When one attempts to “get away from it all” one often finds that the task is a lot easier said than done. In fact the definition of “it all” probably varies from person to person. But if you mean “it all” quite literally, then of course you mean you want to vacate from civilization as fast as possible. Unfortunately mankind has left its imprint on just about every beautiful location on Earth. With that said, there linger a few opportunities to witness the world as it once was before the arrival of people. The following are five places you can still count on to provide you and yours with an authentic natural travel experience:

Seychelles

Located amidst a sequence of 115 archipelago islands in the Indian Ocean, Seychelles is 50% natural preserve. That means half the country is off limits to the influences of human industry, commercialization, and residency. Seychelles also features 305 miles of paradise-grade beaches, providing visitors with a classic tropical experience.

Daintree National Park, Australia

The forests of northeast Australia are millions of years old, much like the forests of Northern California. Only instead of carving tunnels for cars through the ancient trees, the guardians of the rainforests of Daintree have chosen to preserve them as they have been for eons. One in particular is said to be over 2500 years old.

The Galapagos Islands

The isolation of the Galapagos and the resulting uniqueness of its fauna relative to the mainland is what originally inspired Charles Darwin in his establishment of the theory of evolution. Despite human settlement over the last century and a half and the occasional albeit memorable Galapagos cruise, little has changed. It’s still an incredibly diverse microcosm of natural selection and as beautiful a landscape as it was when Darwin first stepped ashore.

Papua New Guinea

It’s shocking to think that some realms of the world remain unseen by modern man, yet the interior of Papua New Guinea, located directly north of Australia, is an exception. The nation is already one of the most culturally diverse on Earth, with nearly 850 indigenous languages in existence as of 2011. It’s thought that countless undiscovered species of animal and plant life are yet to be discovered in Papua New Guinea.

Bhutan

When we think of the Himalayas, we typically think of the rigid mountaintops managed by Nepalese Sherpas or the utilitarian hillside outfits put together by Tibetan monks. But west of Nepal in the small landlocked country of Bhutan, 60% of the landscape remains covered by lush vegetation; mainly trees. Yet it still holds onto the Himalayan atmosphere by having beautiful preserved mountain ranges and deep valleys.

Getting away from it all is harder than it used to be. But it’s not impossible. If complete removal from civilization is what you seek, then consider the aforementioned destinations. They’re the few options you have at a truly natural experience.
