If the Annapurna circuit is Everest’s entrée, then the Ghandruk loop is the hors d’oeuvre! A tantalizing morsel; not too heavy, not too light. Challenging, and yet accessible to anyone with an average degree of fitness and a willingness to take it slow. The perfect introduction to hiking in the Himalayas!
If you have even a passing interest in the landscape around you, and you know you’ll have some time on the Isle of Skye, this is one hike that you must put before all others. We left absolutely exhilarated by what we had experienced, and we thoroughly recommend adding it to your Isle of Skye itinerary!
The hike to Pelverata Falls is the perfect choice for one of those days where you really need to get out of the house and stretch the legs, but aren’t feeling up to a half-day slog. This is one of those walks where we’d strongly recommend that you plan to do it after the rains, because a dry waterfall is simply a cliff right…?
The 4hr return walk to Cape Hauy will not only expose you to stunning panoramic views of the cape, but also north towards the Devil’s Arch and south towards Cape Pillar and Tasman Island. The sea cliffs of the Tasman Peninsular are the tallest in the world, and for that alone it would also be worth making the hike! Put it all together and you’ve got one very enjoyable day walk.
It is no exaggeration to say that this loop would have to be one of the best day walks you will find anywhere in Australia, if not the world!
While the shorter return walk to Wineglass Bay is a favourite of many locals and tourists alike, if you’ve got the time then in our opinion the extension to include Hazards Beach makes for a much more immersive experience, taking you away from the masses and closer to nature!
One of Tasmania’s best day hikes. the Mt Field East loop winds its way through some stunning forests, moors and mountains. On a sunny day, particularly after fresh snow falls, this walk is absolutely magic!
Exploring the caverns, rivers and jungles around Vietnam’s Tu Lan cave system with Oxalis may be one of the most expensive activities you’ll do anywhere in Vietnam, but the experience is worth every cent. We went in with high expectations, and we walked out exceeding every single one. This was the tour of a lifetime!
