Final shot from the Fanns - One last image for now from one of our 2018 highlights, trekking in Tajikistan's Fann Mountains. The twin emerald green lakes of Dushakha glittered in the sun like a pair of precious gems, as we made our way up to the Alauddin Pass. We'd camped by the shore of the big lake the day before, our only company some passing goats and their herders - it was one of our favourite camp spots of the whole trek. . . . . . #bbctravel#guardiantravelsnaps#tajikistan#doyoutravel#travelinspiration#letsgosomewhere#stayandwander#thevisualcollective#ichosetowander#travelphotographer#theconstantlycurious#travelawesome#hikingtheglobe#awesome_photographers#lonelyplanet#travelstoke#finditliveit#tv_asia#ig_asia#passionpassport#transfer_visions#yourshotphotographer#mytinyatlas#traveldeeper#getoutdoors#ourplanetdaily#natgeotravel#natgeoyourshot#tv_landscapes#visit_tajikistan

Nowhere else we'd rather be - It's not everyone's cup of tea, but there's nowhere else we'd rather be, and nothing else we'd rather be doing. Sure, hiking for days on end, carrying food, tent and everything you need - it can be challenging. But, it's also hugely rewarding. There's a sense of freedom and simplicity that's hard to beat. The tiredness and fatigue sends you off to a deep sleep, and the daily increasing strength and fitness feels like the perfect antidote to a modern sedentary lifestyle. After a multiday hike we feel tired but strong - Of all the places we trekked last year, the Fann Mountains in Tajikistan were the clear winner. A combination of climate, mountains and lakes, plus the general lack of people, make this one of the world's top hiking destinations. We loved it and we'll be back - What do you do to keep fit? And are you an indoors or outdoors exercisor? . . . . . #bbctravel#guardiantravelsnaps#tajikistan#doyoutravel#travelinspiration#letsgosomewhere#stayandwander#thevisualcollective#ichosetowander#travelphotographer#theconstantlycurious#travelawesome#hikingtheglobe#awesome_photographers#lonelyplanet#travelstoke#finditliveit#tv_asia#ig_asia#passionpassport#transfer_visions#yourshotphotographer#mytinyatlas#traveldeeper#getoutdoors#ourplanetdaily#natgeotravel#natgeoyourshot#tv_landscapes#visit_tajikistan

Mountain Stalwarts - Donkeys were made for the Fann Mountains. Their nimble and sure feet skip across loose rock, dirt and shale with supreme confidence. Locals use them for both personal transport and goods, as essential to them as cars are in a developed country. They seem generally good natured and well cared for, and when you see them cut loose, cavorting across impossibly steep hillsides, it's a real pleasure - Unfortunately, the donkeys used for the trekking industry sometimes get a raw deal. We've seen heavily burdened animals struggling up the mountainside, whipped unnecessarily by porters, seemingly just for fun. Most donkey handlers treat their animals well, cajoling and encouraging them with a series of bizarre clicks and whistles, but if you do go trekking with donkeys in Tajikistan or similar, take the time to make sure they're being well treated - not used as an outlet for someone's cruel frustration. . . . . . #bbctravel#guardiantravelsnaps#tajikistan#doyoutravel#travelinspiration#letsgosomewhere#stayandwander#thevisualcollective#ichosetowander#travelphotographer#theconstantlycurious#travelawesome#hikingtheglobe#awesome_photographers#lonelyplanet#travelstoke#finditliveit#theearthoutdoors#ig_asia#passionpassport#transfer_visions#yourshotphotographer#mytinyatlas#traveldeeper#tv_asia#ourplanetdaily#natgeotravel#natgeoyourshot#photooftheday#travel

Nature's Mirror - Not to get too stuck on the early risers theme, but here's another prime example of the magic awaiting you at the crack of dawn.

Early birds get the best views - For so many places in Oman, we didn’t need to worry about crowds - there weren't any. Wadi Bani Khalid, one of the country's most famous attractions, was a slightly different story. When we left at 10:00 people were turning up in ever increasing numbers, but when we'd arrived from our nearby camp at 8:00, we had the place to ourselves. Glorious! - Getting up early and beating the crowds is something we've gotten better at, but it ain't easy - sleeping in a tent certainly helps - What about you guys? Are you a worm catcher or late sleeper? . . . . . #bbctravel#guardiantravelsnaps#oman#doyoutravel#pocket_waters#letsgosomewhere#stayandwander#thevisualcollective#ichosetowander#travelphotographer#theconstantlycurious#travelawesome#everydayoman#awesome_photographers#jj_forum_2489#travelstoke#tv_aqua#experienceoman#ig_middleeast#passionpassport#transfer_visions#yourshotphotographer#mytinyatlas#traveldeeper#reflectiongram#ourplanetdaily#natgeotravel#natgeoyourshot#visitoman#tv_landscapes

Off-road Paradise

Off-road Paradise - This country was made for four wheel driving, and to make it even better, they developed a network of truly outstanding unpaved roads. There's still plenty of room for the super adventurous to boulder bash in wadis and dune bash in deserts, but the ability to just turn off the highway in your 4WD and minutes later be driving through awesome mountain landscapes, makes the off-road experience almost easy. It certainly makes it fun, and is a huge reason why Oman is one of our favourite countries - We drove on this fantastic road in the mountains of Musandam, bordering the U.A.E. It was a highlight of our month long trip, a place we'd love to go back to - Have you been to Oman? If so, what're your highlights? . . . . . #bbctravel#guardiantravelsnaps#oman#doyoutravel#travelinspiration#letsgosomewhere#stayandwander#thevisualcollective#ichosetowander#travelphotographer#theconstantlycurious#travelawesome#everydayoman#awesome_photographers#lonelyplanet#travelstoke#finditliveit#experienceoman#ig_middleeast#passionpassport#transfer_visions#yourshotphotographer#mytinyatlas#traveldeeper#4wd#ourplanetdaily#natgeotravel#natgeoyourshot#tv_landscapes#visitoman

Hello Cheeky! - One of the best things about Oman was bumping into an abundance of these humpbacked creatures, particularly in the far south near Salalah. Whether driving in the mountains or hanging out on the beach, these friendly fellows would amble by, searching out patches of vegetation to munch on. They never seemed bothered by the humans among them, occasionally extending their curious faces our way, loose lips pursed with comedic effect. We'd never before been so close to camels just going about their business - it was a genuine pleasure to share their space and yet another reason to really love Oman. . . . . . #bbctravel#guardiantravelsnaps#oman#doyoutravel#travelinspiration#letsgosomewhere#stayandwander#thevisualcollective#ichosetowander#travelphotographer#theconstantlycurious#travelawesome#everydayoman#awesome_photographers#lonelyplanet#travelstoke#finditliveit#experienceoman#ig_middleeast#passionpassport#transfer_visions#yourshotphotographer#mytinyatlas#traveldeeper#camels#ourplanetdaily#natgeotravel#natgeoyourshot#portrait#dromedary

Who's seen ‘Searching For Sugarman’? - The fascinating film about seventies singer Rodriguez is one of the best documentary films of the last ten years. If you haven't seen it, get on it. At the heart of the film, and the reason behind the name, is the song 'Sugarman’. Which brings us in an extremely round about way to the above picture - These are the Sugar Dunes, a series of beautifully rolling, fine white sand dunes on the southeast coast of Oman. Apart from the amazing experience we had of walking, driving and camping in the dunes, my abiding memory of this place is Kim repeatedly singing 'Sugar Dunes’ to the refrain of 'Sugarman’. If you know the tune you're probably hearing it right now - no bad thing if it inspires you to visit this awesome part of Oman. If it's now stuck unwanted in your head, 100,000 fullsome apologies 😊 . . . . . #bbctravel#guardiantravelsnaps#oman#doyoutravel#travelinspiration#letsgosomewhere#paradiseofminimal#thevisualcollective#ichosetowander#travelphotographer#theconstantlycurious#theearthoutdoors#yourshotphotographer#awesome_photographers#lonelyplanet#travelstoke#finditliveit#travelawesome#mytinyatlas#ig_shotz#transfer_visions#ig_minimalshots#ig_middleeast#traveldeeper#minimalpeople#ourplanetdaily#natgeotravel#natgeoyourshot#photooftheday#travel

Fins - Driving along the coast south of Muscat, we decided to make a quick stop at the picture perfect village of Fins. It delayed our arrival at the Bimmah Sinkhole, where we turned up alongside a large tour bus, but it was worth it.

Dishdasha There’s just something instantly appealing and aesthetically pleasing about the dishdasha.

Fjords of Arabia - A mountainous spike of land at the far north of Oman, protruding from the Arabian Peninsula like a jagged thorn, Musandam is home to a snaking chain of secluded fjord-like inlets known as khors. The most famous of these is the stunningly dramatic Khor Najd. You can see why. . . . . . #bbctravel#passionpassport#oman#doyoutravel#travelinspiration#letsgosomewhere#stayandwander#thevisualcollective#ichosetowander#travelphotographer#theconstantlycurious#theearthoutdoors#yourshotphotographer#awesome_photographers#lonelyplanet#travelstoke#finditliveit#pocket_waters#mytinyatlas#tv_aqua#transfer_visions#reflectiongram#everydayoman#traveldeeper#experienceoman#ourplanetdaily#natgeotravel#natgeoyourshot#guardiantravelsnaps#tv_landscapes

Golden Hour - Who doesn't love that magical time of day? In Oman, there wasn't a day went by when those gorgeous golden tones failed to appear. Our only problem was that with sunset at 5:30, we rarely made camp in time to appreciate it - This occasion was different. Pulling in to a clearing from the dirt road, 360° views of Musandam's mountains around, the tent was up in record time and we settled in to watch one of the most spectacular sunsets of the trip. Our good fortune didn't stop there - the next morning we were treated to an equally impressive sunrise, skyrocketing this particular camp spot to the top of our favourites list - As always, it's hard to choose an actual favourite. Out of 25 nights wild camping, we slept out in mountains, on beaches, in sand dunes and of course (being Oman) Wadis. Being surrounded by rocky giants is hard to beat, but there's something about sitting on the beach under the moon and stars, listening to the waves and feeling the cool sand beneath your feet - What d'ya reckon? What's best for camping? Beach or mountains? . . . . . #bbctravel#guardiantravelsnaps#oman#doyoutravel#passionpassport#letsgosomewhere#travelawesome#thevisualcollective#ichosetowander#travelphotographer#theconstantlycurious#theearthoutdoors#yourshotphotographer#awesome_photographers#lonelyplanet#travelstoke#finditliveit#unlimitedsunset#mytinyatlas#sunset_hub#transfer_visions#sunrise_sunset_photogroup#sunset_vision#traveldeeper#mountainlife#ourplanetdaily#natgeotravel#natgeoyourshot#tv_landscapes#experienceoman

O Man, Oman - What an absolutely incredible country. We've got tons to share from our month long road trip here. It's been hard to post on the go as we've driven and camped the length and breadth of Oman, but soon, very soon, we’ll be showing you plenty of awesome shots from this amazing place. That's probably enough superlatives for now.

A Walk Among The Niches - A morning visit to the architecturally impressive Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque in Muscat was a little crowded. That was until we wandered away from the main halls to this mesmerising play of shadow and light - Skirting the complex were these long corridors, their beautifully clever design casting geometrically delightful shadows - Among these hallways were row after row of intricately designed niches, each section inspired by a different era of Islamic or Arabic history. It was a lesson in both history and design - a real pleasure - We're about halfway through our month long road trip in Oman now. So far our expectations have been surpassed by the country's great beauty and the hospitality of its people. We've got lots to share and can't wait to do so - If any of you out there have been to Oman, what were your favourite bits? . . . . . #bbctravel#guardiantravelsnaps#passionpassport#doyoutravel#travelinspiration#letsgosomewhere#ig_ometry#thevisualcollective#ichosetowander#travelphotographer#theconstantlycurious#lensculture#yourshotphotographer#awesome_photographers#lonelyplanet#canonglobal#finditliveit#oman#mytinyatlas#ihaveathingforshadows#transfer_visions#from_your_perspective#ig_asia#traveldeeper#tv_pointofview#ourplanetdaily#natgeotravel#natgeoyourshot#photooftheday#travel

High and Dry in Upper Mustang - Trekking through Upper Mustang was a very different experience to other places in Nepal. Hiking across this high plateau, this ancient seabed, all sorts of wonderful rock formations could be seen. We even found fossils lying loose on the ground - It wasn't all perfect though. They seem to have gone crazy, building far too many unfinished dirt roads that have scarred the landscape and left it an even drier and dustier place. Many old trekking routes are now just roads, making it less attractive as a hiking destination - But, when it was good, it sure was good. . . . . . #bbctravel#passionpassport#nepal#doyoutravel#travelinspiration#letsgosomewhere#stayandwander#thevisualcollective#ichosetowander#travelphotographer#theconstantlycurious#theearthoutdoors#yourshotphotographer#awesome_photographers#lonelyplanet#travelstoke#finditliveit#nepalnow#mytinyatlas#nepaltheplanet#transfer_visions#ig_nepal#ig_asia#traveldeeper#trekkinginnepal#ourplanetdaily#natgeotravel#natgeoyourshot#visitnepal#explorenepal
