YOUR CHANCE TO Edit

Appalachian Mountains are in the focus of interest of hikers, rather than climbers. They are famous for the Appalachian National Scenic Trail, generally known as the Appalachian Trail or simply the A.T. This is a marked hiking trail in the eastern United States extending between Springer Mountain in Georgia and Mount Katahdin in Maine. The total length is approximately 2,200 miles (3,500 km).

• Mount Washington in Appalachians is the place with the world's worst weather! It is the combination of extreme cold, wet, high winds, icing conditions and low visibility consistently found atop Mount Washington, which earn it the title "Home of the World's Worst Weather".

The steepness of the slopes, combined with the north/south orientation of the range, cause the winds to accelerate dramatically as they rise up from the valleys. Mt. Washington Observatory one of the most unique weather station on earth is located here.... Read more

Peruvian Andes

2. The majority of tourists coming to the Peruvian Andes go to the trekking to Machu Picchu - the ancient incas town. But just a few people know that besides of Machu Picchu there is another ancient incas town in Peru, which overcomes Machu Picchu in size and its significance. This town is called Choquequirao (in Quechua - Chuqi K'iraw means "golden cradle"), it is a partially excavated ruins of the Inca Empire in the south of Peru. Ruins are located in the mountain ridge Cordillera Vilcabamba at an altitude of 3085 meters above sea level. Architecture and structure of Choquequirao is very similar to Machu Piccu's but scientists much less explore it. In contrast to Machu Picchu, Choquequirao is impossible to reach by transport - the only available way is a two-day hiking from the village Kachora located not so far from the Cusco.
