There is always a thrill when traveling to a different destination. The journey itself often makes the adventure more appealing and memorable. In some cases, the journey can be perplexing but rewarding, such as these five which are the most difficult to reach destinations in the world today.

Only a few travelers can talk about their adventures in Kiribati, but this is self-explanatory. Kiribati is an isolated country because it only had eight consulates scattered in the world. According to The Atlantic Traveler Albert Podell, the country never required visas for US citizens, but the lack of consuls made it difficult for other nations to acquire visas to enter the country.

Difficult to penetrate visa regulations are a given obstacle in almost any developed country. But terrain is an intense obstacle that require travelers to have proper physical training. Bhutan's Tiger Nest Monastery is one example; travelers to the monastery need to climb a 10,000 hike first.

Russian visas are easy for almost every Western nation to attain. But it is budgeting and maintaining one's expenses in check that makes it difficult. Tourist prices are still present despite Russia's already high-brow prices. Keep budgets in check and prepare a huge overhead to avoid any hassles.

According to Huffington Post, Uzbekistan is a nation with relatively easy access. A journey to Samarkand -- a dried-up lake in the Central Asian country -- is similar to traveling in the Saharan Desert or journeying in Australia's outback. It requires physical training and consistency. Most often, travelers will find photographers taking photos of the picturesque natural wasteland.

Saudi Arabia was one of the most difficult countries to travel for tourists in the past. From 2000 to 2009, according to The Atlantic's Albert Podell, Saudi Arabia did not grant any visas easily for non-Muslims. Outsiders are only permitted visas for the Meccan Pilgrimage -- a Muslim tradition. This is aside from the expensive tour once one is successful in securing his or her visa into the country.
