Bhutan: Chomolhari & Bonte La Pass Trek

Chomolhari Base Camp in Bhutan. October 2017.The Chomolhari & Bonte La Pass Trek. Another great time in Bhutan!
Hi Andy,
Thank you for your card, which we received yesterday. Our trip went flawlessly. Everything you had set up in the itinerary, from big to small, happened exactly as planned with zero hitches. Sonam Phuntso was an outstanding guide, who executed everything perfectly, went out of his way to ensure that no problems occurred and/or quickly found solutions and handily accommodated our desires - beyond the call of duty. The team assembled for the trek itself could not have done their jobs with any more skill and kindness.

Sincerely,
Lonny & Julie

Patagonia: 9-Day Torres Del Paine Circuit Trek

The Torres del Paine Trek in PatagoniaPatagonia: The Torres del Paine Circuit Trek - Into the 'Land of Fire and Ice'. Group dates beginning every Wednesday from late October 2017 through March 2018.

Discovered by Magellan, Patagonia (the ‘Land of Fire and Ice’) is situated almost at the extreme southern tip of South America, just to the north of Cape Horn. We access this remote area by way of the small town of Punta Arenas. From here, we will transfer by bus to a comfortable fixed EcoCamp in the Torres del Paine National Park. The rugged territory of Patagonia is renowned for its breathtaking scenery and this is nowhere better exemplified than in the Torres del Paine National Park, where pink granite towers, iridescent blue lakes and surreally sculpted glaciers compete for the viewer’s admiration. This is also the setting for one of the world’s great trekking challenges, the 7-day and 60 mile-long circuit of the Paine Massif.

Himalayan Travel Tips: Pack a tube of Shoe Goo

Take some Shoe Goo for on the go repairsShoe Goo: a must have for on-the-go repairs while on trek

For those of you heading out on an extended trek or bike tour, we always recommend packing a tube of Shoe Goo. A tube of this magical sticky stuff is not only great for repairing hiking boots but, being both flexible and waterproof, it is also invaluable for fixing a torn tent, patching a hole in your rain jacket and pants and filling a puncture in your inflatable sleeping mattress. If your duffle bag gets torn by a not-so-careful airline baggage handler or while being carried by a porter or yak in Nepal, you can use Shoe Goo to patch the hole and insure that it remains waterproof. Shoe Goo is a “do it all” magical substance to keep damaged gear usable while on trek.
