There really are very few places on the planet we can't reach within a day.

But where's the most difficult to get to?

This is the question the YouTube channel RealLifeLore recently attempted to answer.

They believed the answer would be in difficult environments. While submarines can take us to ocean depths, they believe the answer is one of the most treacherous mountain ranges.

They cite Muchu Chhish, a 7,453m high peak in the Western Karakoram mountains. The peak is highly inaccessible and, as far as is known, no-one has scaled it before.

However, Adventure Travel magazine suggest three others alongside it that could give the peak a run for its money.

A single bite leads to paralysis in a few minutes, followed by heart failure. Most Dangerous Islands in the World
