#1 Langtang Valley Trek: Nepal by @trip-hop

When people think of trekking in Nepal they likely imagine the famous trek up to Everest Base Camp, and that is a good one too. However, the trails near Everest are going to be packed with tourists because so many people have exactly the same idea.Since myself and my pals are generally not all that interested in being at "the same place that everyone else is traveling to, we chose to go another way on the Langtang Valley side of the country. Based on our research, this was also a far easier trek and we could do what is called "Tea Trekking" - which simply means there are places to stay along the way to the top.

#2 Rocky road up the north face of Tryfan by @natubat

We were starting to wonder whether to retreat and rejoin the main path, when Alastair managed to shimmy up an awkward corner edge. It looked steep and scary, but I gave it a go – and managed to clamber up the steep rock.When you're scrambling, it's generally advisable to ensure that you can get down whatever you've climbed up, and we knew we wouldn't be going back down that way! So we hoped that things would get a bit easier from that point on – and thankfully, they did. Not TOO easy though – it was still challenging enough to be fun and exilharating.

#3 Welcome to Sumaging Cave in Sagada Mountain Province, Philippines by @pinoy.viajero

Our tour reached the entrance to the cave a few hours after lunchtime. I remember that the rain has just stopped so the steps leading down the main entrance to Sumaging was still wet when we arrived. It took us a few minutes to reach the end of the stairs. It was a short and easy walk down these steps which slowly turned to rocks then boulders until we've reached the caves dark mouth signalling the start of our descent to the innermost chamber called - Stage 1.
