day+dream in Nepal

This is a different kind of hiking video than I normal share. Mostly, I'm into US based thru hikes, and we often see videos of either those, or of crazy alpine hikes in the Himalayas. Today, I share instead a video of one man's journey trekking in Nepal.

The Himalaya of Nepal aren't simply a destination for alpine hikes but also for journeys to see the people and know their lands (even those that aren't so high up). This video gives a cool perspective of the Himalaya away from Everest, though it was shot in the Khumbu Valley on the trek to Everest Base Camp. Enjoy!

I've never thought of Nepal or the Himalayas beyond Everest, to be honest. This is a cool glimpse into that difference view :)
@treedweller Yes! It's totally another part of exploring and hiking: enjoying the people and the location surrounding the mountains!
I've never really wanted to climb Everest, but this kind of trekking looks like a lot of fun to me.

7 of the World's Most Spectacular Footbridges
I usually think that I am up for adventure, but these footbridges make me think twice. 1. Peak Walk by Tissot (Bernese Oberland, Switzerland) This is the world's first pedestrian suspension bridge to connect two mountain peaks. The 107-meter (351 feet) bridge connects View Point peak with Scex Rouge peak in Switzerland! Famed alpine peaks Mont Blanc, the Matterhorn, Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau can be all be seen from the bridge's observation deck. 2. SkyBridge (Sochi, Russia) The world's longest pedestrian bridge is located in Sochi's new SkyPark attraction! The 439-meter-long bridge has two observation platforms, both offering spectacular views of the Black Sea. There's also a bungee jumping platform from the center of the structure for the most adventurous. 3. Aiguille du Midi Bridge (Mont Blanc massif, France) This bridge links the north and south peaks of the Aiguille du Midi in the French Alps, and is located 12,604 feet above sea level. Getting here involves a ride on the world's highest vertical ascent cable car! From the top, visitors can see into France, Switzerland and Italy. 4. Taman Negara National Park Bridge (Titiwangsa Mountains, Malaysia) At 530 meters long, this is Malaysia's longest suspension bridge. It stretches across the top of the trees of Taman Negara, Malaysia's largest national park. The rope are checked each morning (I certainly wouldn't want that job) 5. Capilano Suspension Bridge (Vancouver, Canada) The Capilano suspension bridge stretches 137 meters across and 70 meters above Vancouver's Capilano River. It was originally built by Scottish engineer George Grant Mackay in 1889, but was completely rebuilt in 1956. Today, it's Vancouver's oldest and most popular attraction, receiving more than 700,000 visitors per year. 6. Hanging Bridge of Ghasa (Nepal) This bridge was actually built specifically for animals, as a solution to the congestion caused by cattle being herded up and down Ghasa's narrow roads. Today, animals remain the biggest users of the Hanging Bridge of Ghasa, prodded along by the farmers who also use it to deliver produce to local families. 7. Trift Bridge (Gadmen, Switzerland) This Swiss suspension bridge, which can only be accessed via a cable car, hangs above the Trift Glacier and has a length of 170 meters. It was built as a response to global warming -- until recently, the mountaineering hut at the top of the glacier could be reached on foot, but when the glacier started to shrink, the bridge became the only route of access.
3 Fun Outdoor Hairstyle Ideas
It's never too early to prepare for Fall. My friends and I just started thinking about outdoor activities during Fall and here I am looking through hairstyles for hiking. I'm that excited. Also, I want to share my curated list to everyone because I thought some of you might be interested in changing up your hairstyles for your fall classes or activities such as biking, rock climbing or yoga. Medium to Long Hair: Easy Pulled Back Ponytail If you're hitting the hills or biking this one is perfect. Your hair will look good for hiking photos and it's not to shabby for a post-hike meal at a diner. This is also a no-fuss helmet hairstyle. Buns are too snug. Styling Instruction: 1. Pull the crown of the hair into a ponytail. 2. Then flip hair through the ponytail. 3. Repeat until the hair at the nape is also pulled back. Tip: The ponytail should be stack on top of the previous tail. Curly Hair: Braidout Ponytail I know how annoying it is to have hair brushing on your face. Even though my hair is not voluminous I get pretty irritated by the piecey strands bugging my forehead. This is why i can't do bangs because I'll end up clipping them up most of the time. If you have the same problem, try this cute hairstyle by AlleySinai. She braids the front and bring it back into a half ponytail. You can also pull it back into a ponytail if you want to keep the hair off your shoulder. Short Hair: Fringe Braid Ponytail Same concept with the braidout ponytail except you're only braiding one part of the bang. Then tie the rest of the hair back in a ponytail. This one doesn't have to be perfect There you have it.
