Because its a bad idea, you need roads and level sturdy terrain for wheels to fully deliver their potential.

Reminds me of Papua New Guinea even in recent history. The terrain is so steep and mountainous that the wheel was never widely adopted. All communication and travel was based on narrow footpaths so there was very little trade between villages to the extent that each village developed it's own language.
