The thrill of skimming across the rugged trails of Cappadocia is only matched by the rustic terrain dotted with iconic 'fairy chimneys'. What are fair chimneys? Rocky pillars that soar to heights of over 40 metres. Among these are cave houses and prehistoric Byzantine churches. Well marked dirt bike trails catering to varied skill levels are available. The best times for this adventure in Turkey are April to October.

Trek the Frozen River – India

Trek the Frozen River – India

This is for the adventure hungry tourist; winter season sees the road into Zanskar frozen solid. And the only way to get to the fascinating north Indian province is by trekking across the frozen surface of Zanskar River. The trek called 'Chadar' is an ancient one that was used by merchants in days of yore; today it is a favoured tourist activity. The 55 mile stretch is enhanced with exploring ancient Buddhist monasteries that are carved into the sides of cliffs and stopping off at remote villages that are far removed from the trappings of urbanisation. January and the beginning of February are best to make this journey while Sri Lanka travel agents will be happy to advise you on further attractions to incorporate into your tour.
