A study by the European Commission with the World Bank has carried out a curious study that consists in finding the most remote place in the world. From the railway, road and river connection across the planet, scientists have mapped out the time it takes to reach a city with a population of at least 50,000 people.


Instead, the most remote place in the world is concentrated in Tibet. Even above Greenland with the exception of remote islands such as Kerguelen in southeast Africa.

Although the Chinese have built the famous train that connects Beijing with Lhasa, the Tibetan plateau - with an average altitude of 4,500 meters - remains the most remote in the world according to the study.
