Every month, we curate the best blog posts and Instagrams from our Lonely Planet Pathfinders.

This month we’re featuring a video from Oksana and Max of Drink Tea & Travel who have encapsulated their challenging climb of Mount Kilimanjaro into a short but exciting four-minute video.

Climbing Mt Kilimanjaro was by far the biggest mental and physical challenge we have ever undertaken on our travels. This video allows you to get a glimpse into our journey to the Roof of Africa and inspire you to put this incredible experience on your own travel bucket list!’

Climbing Kilimanjaro — Drink Tea & Travel

Featuring awe-inspiring footage of the varied landscapes they encountered and portrait shots of the friendly faces they met along the way, Oksana and Max's video has got us plotting our next mountain hike as we type. We also liked the clever use of time-lapse footage and the focus on smaller details which helps give the video a sense of time.

A big thanks to all the Pathfinders for their video submissions this month. We really enjoyed the great vlog submissions from Westfalia Digital Nomads who have been winding their way through France and onto Spain. We’re looking forward to seeing all the exciting adventures you’ve captured on film this month!

Keep your eyes peeled on our Thorn Tree forum where we’ll post the next submission call-out. Find out what else our Lonely Planet Pathfinders are up to (or sign up yourself!) by checking out the Pathfinders video playlist and don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel.
