Natura Vive’s Hotel Room Above Peru’s Sacred Valley Peru’s mountainside “adventure suites” look perfectly vertigo-inducing. Vertically inclined travelers in Peru’s Sacred Valley now have the option of waking up 1,300 feet up a cliff face. The Natura Vive adventure company has rigged three pods they call the Skylodge Adventure Suites on the side of mountain outside Cusco, where for $290 you can spend the night in a translucent plastic shell where not looking down isn’t really an option. The journey there is no billy goat trail. The suites themselves look quite cozy.

Stairway to Hell, Hashima Island, Japan - World's Scariest Stairs By Matt Bell All is right with the world when you’re gazing down from the rooftop of Milan’s Duomo. That is, until you remember the steep marble stairs that got you there—and are your only way down. Stairways can leave just as much of an impact on your memory as the places they lead you. Some are so eye-catching they look like they belong in an M.C. In Peru, for instance, travelers need to tackle about 600 feet of slippery granite rocks carved into the mountainside to reach the Moon Temple at Machu Picchu. All it takes is a misstep for any old staircase to become treacherous (just ask Jennifer Lawrence), yet some standout for being especially scary. Travelers with nerves of steel—and eager for bragging rights—follow these stairs because of what they find at the end, whether a sacred Hindu temple or the top of a spectacular waterfall.

Chipre, el mundo en una isla Jaime González de Castejón Si uno mira un mapa del Mediterráneo, verá un collar de islas alineadas de Oeste a Este que, empezando por las Baleares y pasando por Córcega, Cerdeña, Sicilia y Creta, termina en Chipre, la tercera más grande –con una superficie de casi diez mil kilómetros cuadrados–, encastrada en el fondo oriental del viejo Mare Nostrum. Situada 75 kilómetros al Sur de Turquía, 90 al Oeste de Siria, 380 al Norte de Egipto y 800 al Este de Grecia, resulta fácil deducir el intenso legado cultural que a lo largo de los siglos se ha ido depositando en semejante fragmento de tierra, inevitable encrucijada entre Asia, Europa y África. En Chipre, donde la mayor parte del año brilla el sol, triunfa la naturaleza mediterránea, en parte aún silvestre, pero mayoritariamente domesticada, especialmente por el ancestral cultivo de la vid. Mientras el progreso seguía su curso natural en las ciudades costeras, las poblaciones rurales fueron garantes el sabor de las viejas tradiciones.

Hiking Route | Loodusega koos RMK. I think most intresting for you ouer light nights end of the June- begining July. The idea for the RMK hiking route was born in the year 2000. The goal was to connect existing trails and campsites into one long route. The route was to be marked and described, additional campsites were to be constructed if necessary. First part of the future hiking route was the 70 km long Kõrve trail that leads from Oandu in Lahemaa national park to Aegviidu in Põhja-Kõrvemaa Nature Reserve. Oandu-Ikla hiking route In July 2012 the first hiking route was opened. By the route you will find information boards that talk about forest management, heritage, culture and recreation. Aegviidu-Ähijärve hiking route In 2013 there was a new addition to the existing hiking route that goes from Aegviidu to Ähijärve. Aegviidu-Ähijärve hiking route goes through 8 counties, many nature reserves and exhibits on its 627 km many beautiful Estonian landscapes. The trail is marked with white-green-white paint markings and signpost at turning points.
