      The Mount Kilimanjaro hike can be a great family adventure where parents can take their kids with them for a fun mountain trekking activity. Children below 10 years old however can hike up to 12,000 feet only. Only children 10 years and older may be admitted by the Tanzanian part authorities to climb the summit. Climbing the mountain can be a special bonding experience of children who are up to a climbing adventure with their parents. If you are planning to take your child with you it is possible to arrange the trip with the following tips and considerations:

      Prepare your child prior to the trip

      Preparing your child physically and mentally is very important. Make sure to give your child a briefing on what to expect during the activity. Make sure to buy them the appropriate equipment. Let your child wear it to get the feel of using the equipment to prepare them during the actual hike. It helps to let your child watch some videos on how it looks like to be there and what challenges to expect. It is important to ensure that you child is fit and well for climbing Mount Kilimanjaro and you may find the need to obtain a medical clearance from your child’s pediatrician to be 100% sure they are physically ready for it.

      If you plan of taking your children with you up to the summit, you should consider the weather, the physical condition of your child and be realistic on what your child can achieve. The change in altitude can also cause some altitude sickness on your child thus you should prepare them prior to your planned trip.

      Plan your trip itinerary

      Children who are older than 10 years old have the opportunity of reaching the Roof of Africa or the mountain’s summit called the Uhuru Peak. There are different routes to get to the summit which is also an important consideration when climbing the summit with children. It is best to discuss with your travel guide about your route options to reach to the mountain summit. The Lemosho route is highly recommended to travelers with children because it takes a longer time to hike, giving longer time for acclimatization in the body to take place at uniktour.com/fr/voyage-kilimandjaro. You may also prefer to go with outfitters offering private toilets to make your child comfortable throughout the hike.

      Taking children with you to climb the Mount Kilimanjaro can cause some trouble along the way but the quality of bonding moments with them is priceless. It usually takes timely preparation in order to ensure that you get to hike the mountain with your children with less stress and worries.

    • From: woobiecat1
    • Description:

      Lower Antelope Canyon near Page, Arizona, and Lake Powell should be on everyone's list. It is a tough tour, up and down ladders, walking 1/4 mile through soft sand and narrow (one-foot wide - I mean my foot) footpaths on the ground - don't worry, your body fits, through an indescribably beautiful slot canyon - and then hiking out over beehive shaped rocks up a hill to the path back to your car. If you are a serious photographer, you will need to get the two-hour photographer's pass because you'll need to take your time to photograph its uniqueness.

Snow has lived all his life in the family farm alongside the wall at Jinshanling. Due to the difficulty of making a living off the land the family initially started doing homestays in their home and then Snow began guiding. In recent times they have constructed a number of basic motel style units alongside their home and Snows mother and wife now also operate a home style restaurant for their guests and locals.

      Because Jinshanling Great Wall has located little bit far from Beijing, so our guide should picked us up from the hotel about 6:00am. Hiking the Great Wall of China is a must do thing if come to Beijing. The Great Wall which famous around the world has magnificent architecture and layout. The wall built in the ancient times of China on the mountain to protect attacks from enemy. It is such a huge project with great purpose to protect the country.

  • Sapa, Vietnam in my tour Sapa, Vietnam in my tour

    • From: activetravelasia
    • Description:
      Sapa, Vietnam
      Sapa is considered the second destination of Vietnam after Halong Bay. This town is located in the Northern mountainous area with the endless terraced field and interesting experience to visit the ethnic villages. You can easily catch up with the heavy rain and storm. However, with me – Jeremy Jones, this is not an obstacles but an exciting challenge though I have to prepare a lot more when the rain falls.
      Rain, rain, rain – it always rains
      If you are a unlucky guy coming to Sapa in the middle of storm rain or after a rainy week, then you are in the major. The muddy paths made everyone fell down at least once, and our luggage were sent quite a lot of souvenir from mud.
      The extraordinary Sapa landscape

      Seems like being aware of this, the stalls in the villages offered most of the things to prevent slipping in every kind of terrain. The sellers are quite smart ladies, and especially when you are buying in the tough weather, the price would be indefinable. A raincoat and a pair of rain boot would be the salvation even in just two days.
      Do not leave out homestays

      Every visitors to Sapa should spend a night or two at homestay, for not only experience the local life experience but also come into the rural life and visit the beautiful places of the land. The further the land is, the more beautiful the landscape. And the homestay will let you see those landscape.
      H'mong People in Sapa
      Most of the homestay is a spacious house with sleeping rooms being built next to the main house. People say only those who stayed for two nights could experience the traditional house in the second one. However, after six hours of experiencing, the most expectation for the pervasive numbness is a fare hot shower with common conveniences.
      Sapa Town, Vietnam
      A homestay in Sapa

      In the whole or part of the journey, all of the travelers are followed by the sellers in the village in the hope of selling something. These local ladies became the sufficient supporters when they showed us which way to go, holding our hand to “saving” us from falling down.
      In general, Sapa is a perfect destination for coming after a hard rain with every conditions of muddy marshy land that you could ever imagine. However for me, I wish I had known how the trip was to prepare myself more carefully and save some cloths for becoming clouts because of mud. I will definitely not prevent anyone from traveling to Sapa in the rain weather, but I would love to suggest them to prepare well. You will not regret.

      4-day tour with 2-day trek and 2-night homestay
      Trekking grade: Moderate
      This trip includes a trek through the hills and valleys of the Sapa region, discovering several different minorities along the way. You will experience overnight accommodation in the hospitable villages of Giay and Tay ethnic minorities. The apparent hardships are worth it though as we walk through some of the most spectacular scenery that Vietnam has to offer and experience unique villages culture.

  • ACROSS NORTHERN VIETNAM ON TWO ACROSS NORTHERN VIETNAM ON TWO WHEELS

      By David Atkinson
      Motorbiking North Vietnam
      Traveling around Vietnam by motorbike, seeing breathtaking landscapes, beautiful mountain passes, interesting historical relics, colorful, friendly and happy people…makes you love Vietnam more and gives us extremely special feeling.
      I love the thrill of the open road. Shades on, foot to the floor and cruising through alien landscapes with the stereo cranked right up.
      But Vietnam was just about the last place I expected to find myself on a road trip. Self-drive isn’t really an option here.
      And, as for the State-approved backpacker bus trips, well, let’s just say that rubbing knees with the tie-dye clad hordes and eating in the tourist restaurant, where the bus driver always collects his kickback, isn’t my scene.
      Easy rider
      It sounded perfect. A way to get my engine running and get out on the highway while staying off-the-beaten-track and seeing the real Vietnam.
      Road to Northern Vietnam
      Activetravel Asia is one of the Indochina's leading adventure travel companies. They offer a wide selection of Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia adventure tours, including hiking and trekking, biking, motorcycling, overland touring and family travel packages. ATA’s packages and tailor-made private itineraries take you through exotic destinations to really experience the culture, history and nature of Asia.  They have made hundreds of trips into the backwaters of the far north, building up a comprehensive motorbike guide to northern Vietnam.
      “The bikes are old 50’s designs straight out of Belarussia. They’re the backbone of the country and used by everyone to haul goods around,” 
      “They don’t go very fast, use a lot of petrol and billow out a lot of smoke, but they’ll get you anywhere,” he adds.
      “Besides, they’re very easy to fix. If you’ve got a stick and a rock you can fix a Minsk.”
      Cruise control 
      With the sun in our faces, we join the highway near Hanoi’s Noi Bai airport and start the slow climb northwards. As we progress at a steady 35km/h, overtaking lumbering trucks soon gives way to overtaking lumbering water buffalo who eye suspiciously as we file past the paddy fields.
      We stop for dinner that night in Tuyen Quang. It’s a dusty one-ass town dominated by trucker rest stops and so-called bia om or ‘cuddle beer’ outlets where the town’s two attractions make for natural bedfellows.
      As we settle down for the night in the shabby state-owned hotel, one of my fellow easy riders, Casey McCarthy from Texas, tells me why she has chosen a severe buttock buffing on a motorbike in the rain for her holiday.
      “I’d never seen a Minsk before Vietnam and, although it’s ancient technology, it’s a very easy ride,” she says. “I guess I just wanted to get away from those cattle-truck bus trips and a bike trip is the best way to see the countryside as you decide where and when you want to go.”
      The next day we’re up with the light and, after a hearty bowl of Vietnamese pho bo(a rice noodle soup with strips of beef), we’re back in the saddle and on the road for Ha Giang.
      As we stop for petrol at what looks like a roadside chemistry set, I ask Digby what kind of people are attracted to the idea of driving around rural Vietnam on a piece of Russian war-era machinery.
      “Half are motorbike riders back home or people with some previous experience but not all. I’d never ridden a bike until I came to Vietnam,” he explains, taking a little bottle of engine oil and mixing it with petrol.
      “Drive bikes and you will crash but drive slow enough and you’ll be OK,” he adds, handing over a dollar for two litres. “If we go over, we’ll just slide – unless we hit something. But it’s nothing like driving at 130km back home when you get washed up off the road”.
      Alien invasion
      Hagiang province, Vietnam
      The last 50km to Ha Giang is made up of winding country lanes. It’s a drive not best experienced at dusk when huge trucks with dazzling headlights tear around blind corners with scant regard for approaching fellow truckers, let alone a bunch of foreigners on motorbikes in dayglo jackets.
      As we make the final approach, it feels like entering a long-forgotten Wild West outpost. The locals stare at us like aliens just beamed down from another planet but Digby is used to it.
      “I regularly go to places where only a handful of strangers have ever been before. Just two weeks ago, I took a tour to a place where only three foreigners had ever visited before the new road was built,” he smiles.
      “Just as I was thinking that I’d been everywhere possible, the Vietnamese Government has launched a programme to build roads to each commune so a there’s now a whole bunch of new roads to explore,” he adds.
      “That’s why I do this. It isn’t so much a tour as a road trip where the guide is having as much fun as the customers.”
