Best of walking and trekking

Red sky delight, Lombok, Indonesia

Story behind the picture

“It was a three-day trek up Mount Rinjani on the island of Lombok. We started along well-trodden paths through paddy fields and grasslands, with the volcano in full majestic view ahead. The trek soon got much harder! But it was worth it to see the great expanse of oceans spread out beneath us as we went up. We began our final ascent to the peak at 2am, the night sky exploding with stars above us. Nothing could prepare me for the slog up – nor for the incredible view at the top. That morning spread an unusually crimson light across the entire landscape. I remember thinking how lucky I was to see it at such a striking time of day.” We’d love to include your best new travel photos (at 300dpi) and the inspiring stories behind them.
