From work to feet. Send us your answer to what these feet are about?

This month you can climb to the Roof of Africa along the Machame route to the summit of Kilimanjaro, or head into the heart of the Himalaya in the Annapurna region, to base camp.

The magic and mystery of Morocco awaits on this diverse tour and trek, exploring this exotic land, or go  back packing around Kosi Bay and explore the unique ecological features this coastline has to offer.

The temporary closure of Mt Everest is in the news, and our Q&A looks at training for high altitude trekking.

Our picture of the month is of an unusual sculpture in celebration of an ancient species and and our photo series looks temples of Bhutan.


Our lady in last month's image got a mixed bag of answers. In answer to the question of what she is doing we had replies like: making pancakes, curing cloth, dying cloth, starching cloth....and then the odd correct answers. The lady in making rice paper and the photograph was taken in the  Mekong Delta in Vietnam. The process is a very lengthy, tiring and back breaking exercise. To read a full description of the process, click here

Correct answers go to Cathleen Durant (who also sent us the above link - thank you), Jackie Davis, Marcus Stromberg and Chang Liao.

How can I train for altitude when I live at sea level?
