Luang Prabang trekking - the great outdoor side of Laos' ancient city

    by Barry Northern Laos is famous for its natural beauty: rolling green hills and mountains interspersed with rice fields and countless water buffalo. From the moment we arrived in South East Asia, a trekking adventure through the countryside and staying with a local tribe family was top of our list of things to do. Once we arrived in Luang Prabang, we knew this was the place to do it.     read post

The most spectacular mountains of Afghanistan

  Though this beautiful country has again just fallen back into the clutches of the radical Islamist Taliban - with the likely collapse of the modest tourism which developed over the past 20 years - it's worth noting that Afghanistan's highlights have included cultural tourism, fascinating historical sites, and a staggeringly beautiful landscape, especially when it comes to mountains. In the east and northeast, the imposing Hindu Kush range offer find everything your mountaineering heart…

Withal, I am a little confused about the hiking hats. As we are planning our trip in summer, that's…

Cool facts about Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's tallest peak

Recently I posted on this blog about Africa's six tallest peaks, so I thought I'd follow up with more about the highest and most famous of those: Tanzania's Mount Kilimanjaro (dubbed "Kili," for short). And reaching a maximum 5,895 meters (19.341 feet) in height, not only is it Africa's tallest but also one of the tallest freestanding mountains (i.e. not part of a larger range) in the world. read post

    group in the High Tatras, Gerlach peak trail.

    High Tatras

    Impressive Hikes in an Undiscovered Corner of Europe

    TRIP HIGHLIGHTS!

    • Challenge yourself with hikes to the summit of several peaks in the High Tatras, a unique, seldom-traveled corner of Europe

    • Enjoy scenic landscapes of limestone peaks and unique alpine wildflowers

    • Visit timeless villages with old-world charm

    • Discover the delights of historic Vienna and Prague (and optional tour of Krakow)

    Few visitors to the Slovak Republic (part of former Czechoslovakia) take the trip out to Slovakia’s magnificent mountains, but adventure travelers know what they have to offer: challenging hiking and spectacular alpine scenery.

    The High Tatras, on the Polish border, are a scaled down version of the Alps, where snow stays all summer atop jagged granite peaks, waterfalls tumble from stark rock walls, and jewel like tarns sparkle in wide, green glacial valleys. And in the Malá Fatra mountains, a subsidiary range, deep narrow gorges and ridgetop trails offer great hiking, while a rich alpine flora is found along its quiet forest paths and richly green meadows.

    On this hiker’s odyssey, you’ll make easy scrambles up local peaks, traverse long green valleys to high summit ridges, and meet the friendly locals who share the trails with you (hiking is Slovakia’s national sport!). Hikes range in length from five to eight hours, with a return to the hotel at the end of the day. If you feel like skipping any of the hikes, you’ll find opportunities to explore the local culture.

  • Happy New Year's from The World on Wheels. We're trying something a little different this week, a couple of rides on different kinds of wheels. Our first report of the year is a hidden gem...a fast, five mile ride down the San Gabriel River Trail, located about 20 miles east of downtown Los Angeles.
