New Scientist magazine reported on a study of remote areas.

It’s official, the world’s most remote place is on the Tibetan plateau (34.7°N, 85.7°E).

From here, says Andy Nelson, a former researcher at the European Commission, it is a three-week trip to the cities of Lhasa or Korla – one day by car and the remaining 20 on foot.

Rough terrain and an altitude of 5200 metres also lend it a perfect air of "Do Not Disturb".

Where’s the Remotest Place on Earth?
