From glaciers to contraptions. Can you explain what this photo is about?

At the end of an incredible route of carved steps, lie the mystical ruins of Machu Picchu. Or you can take a tour to visit the incredible Mountain Gorilla of Uganda.

 

If your passion is French food, endless vineyards and Châteaux's, then go cruising in France, or simply spoil the family with a magical ski trip in Livigno Italy this Christmas.

 

Mt Kenya bought for goats and beads is in the news, and our Q&A looks at trekking above Everest Base Camp.

Our picture of the month is of the vineyards of Chile and our photo series looks at Bonsais.


Last month's image was easier than some we have done. The image was of the North Face of the Perito Moreno Glacier. It is 250 km2 (97 sq mi) ice formation, and 30 km (19 mi) in length, is one of 48 glaciers fed by the Southern Patagonian Ice Field located in the Andes system shared with Chile. What makes this glacier so amazing is that normally once a year around March, a build up of pressure from the lake system behind it, results in the entire ice  barrier along the front collapsing. The correct answers came from Pam Gillespie, Sue Simpkins, Andrew Brason, Ingrid Collanger, Nolan Naicker and Barry Kader.

Everest Base Camp Trek: 21 September 2018

Well you waited and it is here - announcing the Emoya Kilimanjaro Climb for Lions


Question of the Month
Can we add on a day to trek into the ice falls above base camp?
 
Unfortunately, unless you have a summit permit for Mt Everest, then you cannot go above base camp. The only side you can is on the North Face where you can get a permit to go as high as advanced base camp.
 
If you have a question you want answered, send it to us. We publish one per month.
