Heard about this on Radio 5 this morning. Someone e-mailed in and said 'when can I get a package tour there?'

It is strange that the local people didn't expand their population into that place when there was nothing to stop them. Just about unique and unheard of in fact - Antartica is the only other example I can think of where a terrestrial environment has been untouched by humans.
