From jagged peaks to bizarre plants. Any guesses as to what this is?

The most amazing experience you can have this December is to spend time with the enigmatic Mountain Gorilla. Otherwise, head to the equator and celebrate Christmas on the roof of Africa - Kilimanjaro.

If you prefer a white Christmas, then head along the Khumbu and spend time with the Sherpa at Everest Base Camp, or simply f
ollow the back roads of Laos to Luang Prabang and soak up a rich diverse culture.


Cable Cars and ruins are in the news, and our Q&A looks at weight and load carries on Aconcagua.

Our picture of the month is of the great web and our photo series looks at the colours of Peru


Last month's image was not that easy but we must say that peoples guess work by deduction was impressive. It was of the famous Mawenzi Peaks. Mawenzi is the third volcano on the Kilimanjaro massif, with Uhuru and Shira being the other two. Kudo's go to Ashley Douglas, Sarita Singh and Juan Leroy for guessing it was somewhere on Kilimanjaro.

Question of the Month
What will our packs weigh on Aconcagua and do we do load carries?
 
During the days to base camp you will carry a day pack as Mules will transport your gear. Above base camp, you will have to carry your own gear bag of around 22-25kg. You will do load carries above base so alternate rest days between strenuous days of load carrying.
 
If you have a question you want answered, send it to us. We publish one per month.
