    Kilimanjaro (5,895m): Lemosho 7 Days Route

    Kilimanjaro(5,895m) is the highest mountain in Africa and the highest free-standing mountain in the world. Additionally, it is a dormant volcano and located in the heart of Tanzania. Everest might be the ‘holy grail’ of all mountains, but Kilimanjaro is the ‘holy grail’ of trekking mountains. Firstly, its location is in a continent known to as the cradle of mankind due to being near (relatively) South African and Ethiopia. Africa is a pretty mythical region due to the lack of knowledge and information for most tourists.

    Stok Kangri (6,153m) : My first high altitude summit

    Introduction Stok Kangri was my first high altitude trek. I had no real experience going past 4,000m, the highest being Kinabalu (4095m) and the longest time I have stayed outdoors in the mountains was during Rinjani for 3 days and 2 nights. To set the context, my initial plan was not to go to Stok Kangri, but a Markha Valley Trek and paying a visit to Ladakh because I had heard and read so much about it. Luck had me link up with random people who were intending to do a summit trek, all 1st timers, so I decided to join in. The group of us consisted of me, Darren,…

    Stok Kangri (6153m) : Planning your trip

    Introduction Stok Kangri (6153m) is a trekking summit in India and more importantly, also known as the “easiest 6,000m peak”, serving as the gateway into experiencing high altitude mountains.

In fact, Stok Kangri was my first foray into high altitude treks. Around South-East…

    The Complete(Almost) Guide To Manaslu Circuit Trek

    Introduction Honestly, nobody really needs an introduction to Nepal. Nepal is famous for, well the highest mountain in the world obviously, Mount Everest, also known as Sagarmāthā in Nepali or Chomolungma in Tibetan. However, that is not the main reason why many backpackers and hikers are drawn to Nepal. It is host to the Himalayan range of mountains which contains 8 of the world’s 10 highest peaks. This leads to endless beautiful circuit treks with jaw-dropping scenery and 8000m+ snow mountains every step of the way. Supposedly, one such circuit is the Manaslu Circuit Trek. There are many treks in Nepal with various difficulties. The most famous and accessible ones are…
