Inside the Culture… Peru

There’s a certain kind of magic to Peru. A country that’s as beautiful as it is beguiling, you can’t help but be charmed. There seems to be a gorgeous landscape around every corner, and views that will keep you mesmerised. But there’s also a strong sense of culture in Peru. On our trek to Machu Picchu, we take the lesser travelled path and see some incredible sights along the way. But we also get to dig a little deeper into the Peruvian culture.

Everest Base Camp with Earth's Edge 4

Inside the Culture… Nepal

When you’re trekking to Everest Base Camp, you really get a sense that you’re somewhere special. And it’s not just the fact that so many have walked this path before you. Or the gravitas that the name Everest holds. It’s the beauty of the Khumbu Valley, the majesty of the Himalayas. But most importantly, it’s the magic of the Nepalese people. On our expedition to Everest Base Camp, we place a real importance on absorbing the culture as much as possible. We spend time in the market town of Namche Bazaar and visit the local Sherpa museum, too. If you want to learn a little more about Nepalese culture, read on for Inside the Culture Nepal…

What do I do about my period on Kilimanjaro?
