Default What parts of the world are still largely unexplored?

Not counting the ocean, caves, etc, im talking land masses. maybe Siberia, the Congo, parts of the Amazon, New Guinea?

Of course all these areas have been seen with satellites, but taking pictures of a place from 250 miles up is not the same as actually exploring it.

The sea bed and space. The abyssal plane and other deep ocean areas. The jungle in the middle of South America, high ice desert of Greenland and the tributaries of the Blue Nile in Ethiopia, probably some parts of northwest Siberia and parts of Australia. Places that are little or not populated. Hill country of Burma and Kalahari desert, Borneo and parts of Indonesia, Congo, Madagascar and forests of Papua New Guinea.Those are places with species of flora and fauna that are not found anywhere else in Earth. Seems like every other week they find a weird new creature near Indonesia somewhere, or going on a deep sea descent.

The equatorial jungles and the remote lands of northern Canada and Russia.

Lonely Planet guides have books/guides for nearly every corner of this planet. As a person who has traveled quite a bit, you'll also see PLENTY of travelers just about everywhere you go with your LP guide as well.

Scientists go in search of world's unexplored corners - Science, News - The Independent (http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/scientists-go-in-search-of-worlds-unexplored-corners-726395.html - broken link)

I think the Mekong River Valley seems to have areas that are barely explored.

Mekong Valley a Treasure Trove of New Species - Science News | Science & Technology | Technology News - FOXNews.com - Fox News was the only thing I found, apologies.

Going on my own I might think

Forested areas of Laos and Myanmar, which might fit with the Mekong deal.

Parts of the Greenland ice-cap.

Much of Antarctica.

Some of the highlands of Papua New Guinea.

Parts of the Atacama and Gobi deserts.

Parts of the Amazon.

Antarctica. While I think it would be awesome to establish a permanently neutral and peaceful nation of people there (who could also live in the cold), I think it's great that such a huge land mass is, for the most part, uninhabited.
