Roberts Frost quotes, “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the one less traveled by”. Taking up a unique adventure around the world is part of every human’s dream. Here are some of the real and adventurous journey’s one would want to explore.
1. Rafting in Grand Canyon Arizona
Over a period of more than two billion years one of the most natural wonders of the world, The Grand Canyon was created through enormous amount of dicing and carving of the multi colour layered rocky structure. The Canyon is well appreciated and much enjoyed from the level of water rather than from the top. This view also gives the viewer a close proximity of the geological aspect of the canyon. The whole area covers a great range from Lees Ferry situated at the north-east side of the Grand Canyon National Park and concludes at Lake Mead.
2. The Sistine Chapel, Vatican City
The Chapel is considered one of the most iconic structures in the Vatican having almost close to 25000 people coming in on a daily basis. The Sistine Chapel measures a small part of the Vatican Museum which is quiet inadequate for the number of visitors in a day. The most prestigious art on the walls of the altar representing the Last Judgement and the paintings on the ceilings are the most iconic moments to be enjoyed while touring this place.
3. Reaching the Base Camps of Everest in Nepal
Completing the legendary trek to Everest Base Camp is truly breathtaking, both scenic as well as adventure. It’s a 14 days trek starting at the Sagarmatha until the foothills of the Himalayas. A special set of permission is required for trekkers to stay at the Base Camp. Some trekkers, hit their 5340m goal and go back to the nearest lake to camp.
Experience the Co-existence of both Nature and the Wild
4. The Illuminated Sky, Namibia
This Gold-Certified Dark Sky Reserve, Namibrand Reserves situated in the vast land of Namibia, showcases the best dark sky in the world. With no settlements in the inside and less densely populated, the dark skies become the result of extreme dry climate.
5. Snow Leopard in Ladakh, India
It is believed that there are about 6500 snow leopards still left in the wild of Ladakh. They can be spotted at altitudes above 3000m as they need cold and Rocky Mountain tops to exist. Ladakh’s Hemis National Park, in the recent past has seen the most number of Snow Leopards.
Above are five of the most adventure filled and unique travel expeditions around the world. A Trek to Machu Picchu in Peru, Hike the Milford Track in New Zealand, Swim with turtles in Ningaloo in Australia, a visit to the Amazon in Ecuador, etc are many more, one-of-a-kind adventures that one must explore by making them part of one’s bucket list and ticking it off would be a life-time experience.
