There are some pristine places that still exist on Earth and these days backpackers and researchers are given access to these areas. While there are some pros to this, such as enhancement of knowledge and Exciting travel experience, I believe the cons, like life threatening conditions and destruction of the ecology, outweighs the pros and this will be discussed in this essay.
To start with, there are two main advantages. Firstly, accessing the remote areas will allow people, especially scientists, to explore the ecosystem, which will add to the knowledge base for the enlightenment of the humankind. For example, there are technologists that are conducting researches on north pole, one of the least accessible areas on earth, to study the environmental conditions and the inhabitants of that area. Secondly, for avid travelers, it will provide an exciting travel opportunity to visit unexplored areas of this planet.
Regardless of how adventurous these areas can be, there are some disadvantages that cannot be overlooked. First of all, even though traveling can provide an electrifying experience, it can be hazardous, if people are unprepared. For instance, many scientists and travelers tried visiting Amazon forests, a scarcely inspected area, without knowing the environment have lost their lives or had a near death experience during their exploration adventure. Moreover, due to access to these unspoiled areas, infrastructure development will be inevitable, and this will pose a threat to the flora and fauna of that area.
To summarize, though the advantage of increase of environmental knowledge and thrilling tourism are present, travel to remote areas is not only fatal to the ecosphere, but also to human life and I believe, the disadvantages predominate the advantages.
