The Manaslu Circuit trek is far less crowded than other classic treks in Nepal and remains a true remote adventure, despite its increasing in popularity since teahouses were built here in 2010. The Manaslu trek features all the great aspects of a classic trek in Nepal: epic scenery, spectacular suspension bridge crossings and a 5100m (17,000-ft.) Himalayan pass.

Top 5 Rafting Trips in Nepal - The Ultimate Guide to Help You Decide which Rafting Adventure is Best for You
When you think of Nepal, the first thing that probably springs to mind is Mt. Everest, the Himalaya, and trekking. Well, have you ever thought about it as a rafting destination?
Dubrovnik is Croatia’s indisputable hotspot, but the rest of the country is rich with wonders waiting to be discovered. Here is a glimpse of Dubrovnik, as well as lesser known but still spectacular spots beyond its medieval walls.
Nepal is home to some of the most spectacular treks in the world. While the classic Everest Base Camp and Annapurna Circuit treks have earned their reputation for a reason, they've become quite crowded. Up and coming treks, such as the Manaslu Circuit Trek and the Three Passes Trek, are now considered better options for those hikers who seek the ultimate Himalayan experience. The list has been updated in 2017 to reflect the most recent conditions.
Plitvice Lakes National Park is Croatia’s most popular attraction with over 1.1 million visitors in 2015 and even more visitors expected this year. Its popularity is no surprise, since Plitvice is a unique natural wonder with its 16 terraced crystal clear lakes and 90 waterfalls. In the summer months the park and its trails can get busy, but with the tips in this article you can avoid most of the crowds.
Given the rapidly increasing popularity of Iceland as travel destination, the question "When is the best time of year to go to Iceland?" has become as much about taking into account the right weather conditions as it is about avoiding the crowds and finding available accommodation at reasonable rates. Depending on how you weigh these factors, and what you would like to do in Iceland, we'll help you decide which season is right for you.

“kimkim was a life-saver! I had no time to figure out our fast-approaching vacation trip to Hawaii. kimkim came in and swept me off my feet to vacationland, without a care in the world. After asking all the right questions about what would make a "perfect vacation" for us, they quickly created a trip personalized to match our every request, and made us want to jump on the plane immediately!”

They provided immediate access to a truly knowledgeable local resource that helped with every detail of my trip planning from choosing the best hotels to questions about what to pack. The whole team at kimkim was extremely easy to work with and they gave us the resources we needed to feel confident and excited about every detail of our trip. I highly recommend working with kimkim.”

For many of us, travel planning has become a painful experience; we spend countless hours researching online and are left with too many choices.
Instead, imagine talking with a local travel expert, someone who knows the destination well and can offer curated travel advice. A person who loves recommending great experiences based on your personal interests. And what if they could put the entire trip together to easily review and book in one place?
We believe this is the future of travel — bringing the local expert back into the trip planning process equipped with the tools to put together a truly amazing trip.
We're excited to be part of your travel experience, whether it's a once-in-a-lifetime adventure or a short holiday with your family.
