Dzongri Trek Thinking about trekking in the Himalayas? This post goes beyond the most popular treks and gives a good introduction to the region of Sikkim in the eastern part of India and boasts some great mountain photography as well. My votes for the best treks in the region are Goecha La and the Green Lake trek. The Himalayanwonder blog is a great one to follow if you love mountains or the Himalayas in particular.

Klondike Highway This is one trip that’s always been on my bucketlist. This drive takes you across the vast and remote stretches of the Canadian Arctic. If you can get here it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to see one of the last few remaining wilderness areas on the entire planet. Most visitors here are not tourists but temporary workers looking to mine the vast mineral resources. This excellent post gives a brief introduction and background on present day gold mining camps.
