Punta Jesus Maria

Punta Jesus Maria is on the Island of Ometepe. It is inside the Lake of Nicaragua. The island is made up of two Volcano’s. The largest is Vulcan Concepcion pictured here. The Volcano is 1610m tall. You are able to hike it. I did not though.

Punta Jesus Maria is located between Moyogalpa and San Jose. It is simple to find. The local busses can even drop you off at the end of the road.

Bungle Bungles, Purnululu National Park

Over the last 2 weeks I have had the opportunity to work up in the Kimberly and Top End Region. I was guiding a group of Gap Year students showing and experiencing new areas such as Purnululu National Park. The photo above is one of the many sunsets that we saw while we were traveling the Top End. It was very hot. We spent two mornings assisting rangers clearing paths, removing cane toads, and clearing campsites. The work we did made a difference to the appearance to areas that we cleaned. In the afternoon we explored the walks. On the first day we went to the Cathedral and Picaninny Creek. The next day we explored the Echidna Chasm. There is a lot more to see. I found the best time is in the evening and early mornings. Some places are best seen at midday.

Longsheng Rice Terraces

The rice terraces in Longsheng were amazing. I traveled up the chair lift through the cloud. The landscape changed at it came into view amongst the cloud. At the top of the rice terrace, I got the experience the moving clouds and the mystery of the terraces. I was up the top of the rice terrace for about an hour and there was always clouds around the mountains. This is one of the shots I got before the cloud came in and covered the rice terrace and mountains.
