Sandboarding in Morocco (Merzouga) – what it really looks like

Merzouga is a small village near the Erg Chebbi desert, which is one of the biggest tourist attractions in Morocco. There you can, among others: ride camels, spend the night in tents in the desert, ride over the dunes in an off-road car or try sandboarding, a desert version of snowboarding. This last one sounded the most interesting to me.

First time in mountains in winter – what you should remember

The mountains are beautiful in winter, but if we do not prepare properly for the hike, it may become a torment rather than a pleasure. I also know this from my own experience ;)

Why Cambodia needs to be on your bucket list

Cambodia, which shares borders with Thailand and Vietnam, may be renowned for its storied history, but there’s no reason to avoid it today. In fact, much the opposite. You absolutely should make this South East Asian country a destination on your bucket list. Here are five good reasons why:

breithorn

Hiking trip to Breithorn – the easiest alpine four-thousander

For a long time I could not convince myself to go to Breithorn (4164 m). I haven’t been on any four-thousander before – except for Toubkal, where I didn’t reach the summit ;) so it would be a pleasure to reach some, but hiking the ski runs didn’t seem interesting to me. I don’t regret, however. I gained new experiences, and the views, despite these ski runs, were pleasing to the eye. 

via ferrata johann, dachstein

Via ferratas at Dachstein region – difficult and beautiful

Since I did my first via ferrata two years ago – at Hohe Wand, I knew that I have to visit the region of Dachstein. This is where you can find several via ferratas graded D, and even E, where I wanted to challenge myself. This year I had an opportunity.

Via ferratas in Silberkar gorge

Silberkar gorge in the Dachstein massif can be a great idea for a family day out but you can connect it also with via ferratas. In the gorge and above the Silberkar Hut there are three short but interesting via ferratas.

Pieniny Mountains – small but beautiful

Pieniny is a small mountain range in the south of Poland and the north of Slovakia. The most famous peaks – Trzy Korony and Sokolica are less than 1000 m high but they offer great views on the Dunajec river and Tatra Mountains. There are also other attractions available like castles and raft trips down the Dunajec on traditional wooden rafts.

Via ferrata trails in Lienz Dolomites

After few days in Brenta, we relocated to Lienz Dolomites to try more difficult via ferratas. I was satisfied! The views aren’t so amazing as in Brenta but still wonderful and via ferratas were really challenging for me, especially the last one ;)

Brenta Dolomites – the most wonderful mountains I’ve ever seen

The trail Via delle Bocchette is said to be the most spectacular via ferrata in Brenta Dolomites and one of the best in whole Alps. It’s technically easy but offers great exposure and excellent views. I was impressed!

High Atlas Mountains (Jebel Toubkal) in winter

I was never so cold like in Africa! And so afraid for my life like during blizzard in High Atlas. These mountains are gorgeous and I would love to come there again but next time not in winter…
