Man, I really would love to stay in such an research station in Antarctica for like one or two weeks just to feel this isolation and witness the untouched nature firsthand before it is gone for good.

That Sphinx Observatory is absolutely astonishing and currently sits near the top of my ever-expanding 'bucket list!' Everything about that place boggles the mind, from the construction project itself, to the extreme remoteness and incredible views, to its state-of-the-art sky surveying equipment. Definitely one of the coolest structures we've ever created though, in my opinion.

Seeing you talk about the Sphinx Observatory reminded me of when I used to live in Switzerland and my school took a trip to Wengen during the winter. We ended hiking up to the Restaurant Eigernordwand and besides the fact that I had a mind blowing realization that I had ended up eating at the restaurant that I had spent hundreds of times passing by while playing Gran Turismo 5, Hiking to the Eigernordwand in the dead of winter with absolutely dead cold freezing temperatures and snow coming down, it was like only something you'd expect to experience in a video game. The only thing comparable I could think of was like the first time I had to climb High Hrothgar when I played Skyrim as a kid for the first time, minus the troll of course. Switzerland is truly an otherworldly place, nowhere else on Earth like it.

The Svalbard Seed vault is hardly remote! It is located only a few miles from the thriving town of Longyearbyen, which has a permanent population of over 2000 people, as well as a functioning International airport with regular commercial flights
@vald.1617 2 yıl önce
I think he probably included it because it was designed to be remote and, although it's relatively close to civilization compared to other things on this list, it's still fairly far away that it's no longer under threat of direct bombardment, and the vault itself is built to withstand virtually anything that doesn't directly damage it.

There's some amazing Buddhist monasteries and castles on the north side of the Himalayas (built into the side of the mountains) that were only filmed in 1924 as part of a silent flim, the Epic of Everest, covering George Mallory's ascent of Mt. Everest. I tried looking up information on them and the only thing the internet had to offer was that it appeared in the film.

Very interesting, I recognise the light house from the BBC pre show adverts and as you pointed out, the Eso Hotel from the Bond film, never knew it had that dome in it though. I love how it sits into the landscape with its flat face looking like a wall, it’s hard to explain why that is so beautiful to me.

I live in the American Southwest. Near my home in the Southeastern corner of Nevada just miles from the Utah/Arizona border is a series of buildings and dams on the Eastern side of lake Mead, from what I understand they were built by the civilian conservation corps sometime in the mid to late 1930's. Those are the most remote buildings I personally know about. It's about 100 miles from anything else.

Nicely made video. There has however a mistake sneaked in. The Sphinx observatory is the highest observatory in the Alps and one of the highest in the world, but it isn't the highest building in the alps. These honors go to the Refugio Margharita right on the border of Switzerland and Italy on the Monte Rosa massif, a mountain cabin, but a rather large one. It's altitude is almost 1km (1000m or 3300ft) higher than that of the Sphinx observatory, at 4554m (14,940ft) I have spent one night there on one of my mountaineering tours and sleeping on such a high altitude really gives you a headache.
