Gangkhar Puensum, Bhutan

The Amazon spans across eight countries: Brazil, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Venezuela, Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana. Many parts are have not been explored, and there are still unknown tribes and species living deep within the rainforest. The Amazon is home to half of the planet's remaining tropical forests.

Republic of Sakha, Russia

The Sakha live on herding reindeer, fishing, and hunting squirrel, fox, and ermine.
