Gorgeous trek to Fitzroy 🏔️🌲🥾
When in Patagonia, make sure to add El Chalten and the Laguna de Los Tres hike to your list!
This stunning 15 mile trail through rocky paths and wooded areas winds past enormous glaciers and beautiful mountain scenery.
After ascending 3500 feet, you’ll reach the frosty blue Laguna de Los Tres at the base of Mount Fitzroy.
The weather at the top can be incredibly cold and windy, but if the weather cooperates, take a rest by the lake to enjoy a snack.
After reaching the summit of the trail, descend on foot back to El Chalten. The trail ends at the edge of town.
🔹Take a bus to Rio Eléctrico to start the hike. This lets you cover 15 miles of one-way distance, rather than 7.5 each way out-and-back. Tour offices in town can set you up for this shuttle.
🔹There are many streams along this trail. Bring a filter to fill your own water bottles along the way.
🔹The weather is unpredictable. Be prepared for blaring sun, freezing winds, and even rain. Pack layers!
🔹Have fun and enjoy the view at the top!

A weekend spent with friends in nature
Cape Town is beautiful, and it would not be what it is without the world famous Table Mountain, but people often forget that Table Mountain isn’t the only mountain we have to offer here in the Western Cape, infact, we have an entire mountain range just a few hours away, the Cedarberg Mountains.
A short while back I had the pleasure of going on a weekend camping trip to the Cedarberg with some friends. We stayed at Krommrivier farm and had a wonderful time. The stars at night were so bright and the nature around us was breathtaking. There is an abundance of hiking #camping #camping #cedarberg #nature #hiking #hikingtrails trails to choose from in the area, we did a beautiful hike to a secluded pool in the mountains. The water was cold as ice but it felt good after the 2 hour hike. There was also a great opportunity to do some rock jumping for the adrenaline junkies amongst us.
On our return to Krommrivier we went to the on sight restaurant to wind down. The hand cut fries were delicious and my chocolate milkshake was exactly what I needed after that long hike. We sat outside the restaurant, enjoying the scenery, reading our books and taking time to relax.
At the end of the weekend (though it was short), I felt rejuvenated and was left with some memories I would cherish forever. Making smores over the open fire, being brave enough to jump from a height that terrified me, and sharing meaningful moments with my friends, there’s just something that you find out there, out there in nature when it’s just you and your thoughts, perhaps a friend or two. I‘ll cherish those moments forever.

⛩️MEMORIES OF KYOTO: THE CITY OF ZEN
The longer I walked, deeper into the mountain of Inari, the chillier the air became. However, it was not the kind of cold one would fear; but strangely enough, it was one that consoled and touched me. And there, I whispered to the gods of the shrines deep within this mountain my prayers, wishes and hopes. #kyoto, you are indeed the city of absolute zen!

Changing seasons in the Lakes 🍂🏞
Scaling some scree, and striding up squigley paths to the Catbells summit (1,480ft) was how our first fall day trip in the UK Lakes was spent- taking a little over an hour to reach the peak of the mountain.🧭
With only 3 hours until the train home, we weren't sure if we would have time... But it was well worth it, and actually with views like this, missing a train home wouldn't be the worst thing in the world... 😍⛰️

Dragon’s Back Trail
The Dragon’s Back Hike is one of the most popular trails in Hong Kong due to its impressive coastal views seen from the ridge-line but also because it is one of the less intense routes in the region. Dragon’s Back Trail gives hikers outstanding, scenic views without too much incline and climbing. The trail is suitable for families, amateur hikers and all tourists looking for an adventure.
Somehow it has become the most popular easy hiking trail in Hong Kong. Nevertheless, it was beautiful but crowded.

Lost and found your peaceful souls in Turośń Kościelna, Białystok County Poland
From Warsaw we travelled forward the north-east toward the Białystok County, where there are trees and garland along two side of the highway. The town is ever absolutely beautiful, even though the town population is not dense but it is very lively full of positive vibe. In August you can see a stall along side of the road selling blueberries and other local berries.

National scenic hiking trail
Attractions - When it gets too hot in the summer, Meiling mountain park is the best city getaway. Most of the park is in the forest and the temperatures under the trees are much cooler. The park has a very interesting metal path that takes you up to the forest path around the mountain. Cars and bikes are not allowed in the area so it's ideal for families.
Food - there are a few food options, including convenience shops across the road from the scenic area.

Dance of Nature & Human Skyscrapers
Shenzhen is quite a mountainous region, which qualify it to be one of my favorites in China. Oftentimes in a few metres onto the main road 🛣️ you'll get to see the distant 🏔️ mountains with full green 💚 patches. So this time I decided to chase one of those mountains and hike to get the view of man-made skyscrapers 🏙️ from the natural skyscrapers ⛰️😜 Since I stayed in Luohu district in Shenzhen it's super convenient to just take a 20-min ride to reach Wutong mountain. You may start your hike in a neatly laid out cement road, but to get the amazing view you have to take a detour to a 🪨 rocky path, after some 2 kms. What's the fun in hiking in a cement road right ? 😉 #tripblazers #urbanexplorer #hiking
