Top 10 most remote places on planet earth

A fascinating overview of the 10 most isolated places on earth, some predictable, some I had never heard of. An example is given above, La Rinconada, a small mining town in the Peruvian Andes. Located over 5000 m above sea level, La Rinconada is considered the “highest” city in the world, and it is this stunning geography that makes it so desolate. The city is located on a permanently frozen glacier, and can only be reached by truck via treacherous and winding mountain roads. First seen here.
