I LOVE Asia. Like… Really love Asia.

I lived on the continent and traveled it quite extensively, however, I’m nowhere near done!

Luckily, Asia has some of my favorite places in the world, partly because of their viewpoints!

I mean, who doesn’t love a good viewpoint? I don’t even want to know. To me, that’s like not liking puppies, flowers, or water… We just can’t be friends.

Here are some of Asia’s most epic viewpoints that I KNOW will entice you to buy a plane ticket and just go!

Asia’s Most Epic Viewpoints

Jodhpur, India

The famous Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur is one of the highlights in Rajasthan, a province Northwest of India known for its majestic palaces and forts. Jodhpur is also known as the Blue City of India as houses are painted blue to keep them cool in the scorching heat during the summer months when it can get up to 40 degrees celsius. For a couple dollars you can enter the impressive Mehrangarh Fort and walk up to the top for incredible views over the city. Due to the many accidents that occurred from people taking selfies on the edge they now fenced the walls. Therefore to find this exact viewpoint you have get outside the walls of the Fort and walk around to the Southwest corner where you will find an unobstructed view over the Blue City. Some beautiful paths can only be discovered while getting lost!

Punakha Valley in Bhutan

As a mountainous country with 72% forest coverage, agricultural land in Bhutan is scarce and population congregates in the major valleys. All of the country’s cities and most of its population inhabit these lower valleys where land is flatter and crops can be grown. It is in these valleys where streams and rivers from mountain ice melting flow. This photo is of Punakha Valley, one of the most beautiful and fertile parts of the country where even mangoes are grown and adventure sports like rafting take place all year round, and it was taken from the Golden Temple on top of a mountain. 

 

 

Fishtail Peak in the Annapurna region of Nepal

Trekking to Annapurna Base Camp in Nepal will reward you with wonderful views at every turn. Every step is a postcard when you’re trekking in the Himalayas — the highest mountains on Earth. This shot is of Fishtail Peak in the Annapurna region of Nepal. The mountain earned that nickname because from certain angles (not this one) it bears a striking resemblance to a fish’s tail.

This wonderful view of Fishtail is earned on the ‘summit day’ of the Annapurna Base Camp trek — after trekking in his shadow for days, the final hours of the trek pass by the base of the mountain, take a hard left turn and begin climbing. This results in an amazing view of one of the Himalaya’s last virgin peaks — the Nepali regard Fishtail as sacred, and as far as we know, no one has ever stood on top of it. 

 

Gunung Mat Cincang, Langkawi Island Malaysia

Although not the highest mountain in Langkawi Island, the view from 550-million-year-old Gunung Mat Cincang is spectacular. The impressive 700-meter-tall mountain is the oldest known geological formation in Peninsula Malaysia and considered by many to be the actual birthplace of Malaysia.

 Langkawi’s 99-island archipelago can be seen from the mountain top. And on a clear day, even the distant shores of Koh Tarutao, Thailand are visible. This amazing vista is reachable via Langkawi’s top two tourist attractions; the Panoramic Cable Car and Sky Bridge in Oriental Village. Do take note, that regardless of the tropical heat at sea level, it can get a bit chilly at the top. So, dress accordingly.  

 

Star Lagoon in Raja Ampat, West Papua, Indonesia

You must climb to the top of the hill to see this perfectly shaped star lagoon, in Raja Ampat. Raja Ampat is an archipelago of islands in Indonesia, situated just off the tip of Bird’s Head Peninsula in Indonesia’s West Papua province, formerly known as Irian Jaya.

The Star Lagoon is located to the east of the stunning Painemo islands in Raja Ampat. The lagoon is perfectly formed as a star, and the waters are crystal clear and change from blues to greens as you watch. Raja Ampat is an unspoiled marine park, and the area is pristine. While it has become popular with divers because of the high visibility, and with bird watchers who come to see the wildlife like the Bird of Paradise, which is native to this region, it has not become touristy yet.

Raja Ampat and the Star Lagoon are not the easiest places to get to, requiring flights from Jakarta to Makassar to Sorong, but is one of the most unique areas that are not yet on the tourist radar.

 

Meghalaya in North East India

From Theetlrblog

The moment we took a couple of steps down to reach the living Root bridge at Mawlynnong – The Cleanest Village in Asia.
We found ourselves amidst a touristy crowd, clicking selfies and with the umbrellas open, even when there was no rain. I had a feeling that we stepped into a ‘chhata party’ (Umbrella Party)

Just when you cross the bridge and come to the other side, there’s a small trail that goes all the way up leading to a viewpoint (Nohwet Iar Tong).
As the initial access is through steps, its often neglected by a lot of tourists. But am glad we took the trail, which passed through a quaint little village and finally led to a viewpoint. What made this viewpoint special, apart from the view, was that it was entirely built of bamboo and that too by the villagers.

 

Ko Phi Phi in Thailand

From Travel and Destinations

The Ko Phi Phi Islands in Thailand, South East Asia provides some of the most stunning natural scenery in the world! Here you’ll find mountainous terrain, turquoise water and white sandy beaches. The best way to experience this beautiful place is to head up to the Viewpoints located at some of the highest points on the Island. There are two viewpoints with Viewpoint 2 being the highest, but they are connected along the same route. To get to the top involves a steep climb and a fair bit of effort, but the views are breathtaking and make it totally worth it. The Viewpoints are also a popular spot for sunset where you’ll be able to watch the sun go down over the islands, but you can also visit during the day to get a perspective such as seen in the image below.

 

Sunrise over Temples in Bagan, Myanmar

Sunrise in Bagan, Myanmar is a once in a lifetime experience on many adventurous travellers bucket list. While some choose to experience the moment from the vantage point of a hot air balloon, those with lighter pockets can also enjoy the experience from the tops of Bagan’s famous temples. The well-known temples fill up quickly, with tourists arrive well before sunrise to set up for photos. But if you are willing to go off the beaten path and down a few bumpy roads, you can find yourself an unmapped temple that few know about with a jaw dropping view of the sunrise, temples, and hot air balloons.

My secret temple is known to the locals as ‘ta-wait’ and can be found near the famous Sulamani temple which does appear on the maps. There are (cobweb covered) stairs to a viewing platform, but if you are eager to embrace your Indiana Jones you can climb up the walls and sit (or stand) on the ledge at the very top. Cautionary word of advice: the best way to reach the temple is by e-bike, and their batteries tend to die fairy often. So I’d advise going with a small group else or else you might end up stuck alone for a very, very, long time. 

 

Freedom Beach viewpoint in Koh Tao, Thailand

If you’re looking for breathtaking views with vibrant blue waters that contrast against the deep green of palm trees then you need to go to Freedom Beach viewpoint. This small viewpoint is still relatively unknown so your chances of having the spot to yourself is likely.

Located on Koh Tao in Thailand, Freedom Beach viewpoint is just off of Freedom Beach which is a short scooter ride away from the main town. You’ll have to pay to enter the beach area as it’s a private resort (about 50 baht), park your scooter and then as you begin your hike there is another checkpoint where you’ll be asked to pay another 50 baht. Believe me, it’s well worth it.

The hike is relatively easy, is about 10 minutes long and can be done in flip flops. It is steep or awkward at some points but has a rope to help you up. Once at the top climb up the few giant rocks and viola, a tiny piece of paradise on a Thai island.

 

The Cascades in Yerevan, Armenia

From My Wanderlust

Yerevan is not the most beautiful places you will visit during your travels but it definitely has a soul and a charm that I personally can’t resist. As soon as you arrive at the capital of Armenia you will notice Mount Ararat just about everywhere – on the passport stamp, on the bottles of brandy or on the paintings sold in the park galleries. Due to the political decisions the Armenian Holy Mountain known from the Bible (that’s where Noah’s Ark came to rest) is now located in Turkey but if you’re lucky you can see it very clearly from Yerevan.

The best spot to admire Ararat is from the Cascades – the museum complex located in the northern part of the center. You can climb all the stairs to the top but there’s also the option for lazy people – on the left side there is the entrance to the Cafesjian Center for the Arts where you will find the escalator going all the way up! But once you go out from the building you can see the big part of Yerevan and Ararat right in front of you. That’s one of my favorite views in the world! Sometimes the Holy Mountain is moody and the view isn’t very clear but even then it’s worth to go to the Cascades, even if just to see the museum (part of the exhibition is outside) and to look at Yerevan itself!

 

Seoraksan in South Korea

Located on the northeast coast of South Korea, just a few miles away from North Korea is one of the most stunning mountain ranges the country has to offer, Seoraksan National Park. South Korea boasts for having 21 different National Parks, a majority of them being mountainous. While the others all sort of look similar, none compare to Seoraksan’s craggy and pointed ridgeline.

You really can’t get a bad viewpoint from anywhere in the park. If you’re not up for a treacherous climb you can take a cable car up to the summit of a mountain for a beautiful view, take a steep set of stairs up to a cave overlooking the dramatic drop below, or do an overnight ridgeline hike.

 

Padar Island in Indonesia

One of the main islands in Komodo National Park, East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia is Padar Island. Although no longer inhabited by Komodo dragons, this is a famous pit stop for travelers exploring the National Park because of its beaches and views. 

The terrain offers no shade though, so hiking is definitely recommended to do early in the day to escape the harsh midday sun. Although it is a short hike, the loose and dry soil makes climbing to the viewpoints tricky. One viewpoint has a lone tree and rocks that offer respite to the tired traveler before moving towards the higher viewpoint that gives an even better panoramic view of the whole landscape. At the top, one could see Padar Island’s different colored beaches nestled in coves blending in the sea. 

The trek could take at least 30 minutes to the top. but of course, with Padar’s beauty, we took a lot longer than that to take a LOT of photos.

 

Nang Yuan Island in Thailand

Nang Yuan Island is just off the coast of Koh Tao, Thailand. To climb to this gorgeous viewpoint, follow the wooden walkway that winds across the rocky outcrops and finish with a steep but short climb to the summit. From here you can see the uniquely shaped island in all its splendour. From the sandbanks in the ocean that make the turquoise marbling to the little fishing boats bobbing in the distance. Nang Yuan Island is one of the top locations for snorkelling in the area and little boats can be commissioned from all along the famous beaches. It is a protected nature reserve so no plastic or glass is allowed onto the island, although snorkels are an exception! It is rumoured to be the one of the original inspirations for The Beach, by Alex Garland and draws steady crowds from Sairee Beach each year.

 

Lau Cai village entrance in Sa Pa, Vietnam

From Orange Wayfarer

The breathtaking trek through Sa Pa valley as a traveler descent towards Hmong tribe’s village settlement is a treat to the eyes. Even though there are certain view points the Vietnamese government has taken endeavor to highlight with cemented resting places, the mountain ranges often play with the descending Sun to create astounding landscapes.   Pristine nature is all her glory adorns the route. If walking is not your forte, feel free to hike to the base of mighty Fansipan range through the rope-way of French legacy. As the sun sets and teeming village lights decks up the mountain range from distant villages, the nomad in you will feel pleasantly satisfied.

 

Skydiving in Zambales, Philippines

This one was taken during a solo skydive in Zambales, Philippines. It was my first time to do a skydive and in addition it wasn’t a tandem jump, so it goes without saying that it was extremely nerve-racking. However, the bird’s eye view from above was worth it. There’s the beach and endless fields, and up ahead a throng of mountains. Everything looks more surreal, more personal than when looking outside the comfortable compartments of an airplane. It was calming and one of the best views I’m blessed to witness so far.

 

Mount Batur in Bali, Indonesia

Here’s my view from a sunrise hike to the top of Mount Batur in Bali that took my breath away. The climb itself was tough and I was the slowest of my group, being extra careful not to slip on treacherous volcanic sand lining an almost vertical slope near the top – it reminded me to do cardio a little more regularly. I would suggest packing a warm jacket, as it’s cold in the early morning. The view was rewarding and more than made up for all the hard work. The tips of Mount Agung and Mount Rinjani peered above fresh clouds, sleepy houses and a placid lake to wish us good morning with the warmth of the sun. The perfect start to a new day.

 

The Peak in Hong Kong

I’ve been lucky enough to take my family on some pretty spectacular experiences, while I have loved them all there have been a few that totally blew me away. One, in particular, was the Peak Tram, a funicular railway that takes you to the top of Hong Kong Island were you can take in the most mouth dropping view of the city scape right back down to Victoria Harbour and across to Kowloon on a good day.

I suggest if you are visiting the Peak Tram that you get there early, the queues can be quite long particularly in school break times. Don’t be content to just see the view from the Peak Tram final stop, you must go up to the Sky Terrace 428, this is were you get the most amazing view.  The view is amazing during the day and the night so if you are able to get up there for both you won’t be disappointed. 

 

Pidurangala Rock in Sri Lanka

Perhaps the most famous landmark of Sri Lanka, Sirigiya rock looks amazing from a distance. We spent a few days in Sigiriya and realized the best way to see this rock is from top of another hill that’s directly opposite – Pidurangala rock. We woke up at 4 am, rode our bicycles to the start of this hike and climbed in dark to reach the top. The climb is easy in the beginning but is slippery at the end. We reached just in time to see the most spectacular sunrise from up here.

 

Paragliding over Lake Pokhara in Nepal

The first time I visited Pokhara, Nepal I really wanted to try the paragliding but I didn’t have the nerve. This time, three years later, it was on the top of my list of things to do there. 

The conditions in Nepal are perfect for paragliding. The thermal winds are ideal, there are great take off and landing zones, the views are insane, it’s one of the most affordable places in the world to do it and, one of the things I like most– if you’re going to crash land there’s a huge lake below you. 

I’d much rather crash land in a lake than on land if it comes to that! This is definitely one of the most insane views I’ve had during the trip– you should definitely check it out yourself when you visit Pokhara.

 

Rooftop of the Main Bazaar in Istanbul, Turkey

Istanbul it’s an amazing city and as it’s located on the Bosporus river, many of its streets are on steep hills.

It surely keeps lots of amazing viewpoints, from coffee shops and restaurants you can drink the best tea or enjoy your Kebab with the river and dozens of mosques around.

The city hosts hundreds of markets and in the Sultanahmet area, one of the more touristy in the city, the Grand Bazaar is the rock star of the markets around! The area is totally worth to visit and easily reachable by public transport. If you take the tram you can combine your visit to the Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque with the Grand Bazaar in the same day.

There are some hidden spots and especially this one in the rooftop of the Main Bazaar is my favorite and has one of the bests views in Istanbul.

Chandrashila, the Moon Rock in India

The word ‘Chandrashila’ literally means the “moon rock” and is the summit of the Chandranath Parvat (mountain). The Chandrashila peak at an altitude of 12077 ft (3681 metres) ASL offers stunning panoramic views of the Himalayan ranges of the Chaukhamba, Trishul, Nanda Devi peaks, Kedarnath, Kedar Dome, Gangotri and Yamunotri peaks.

Moreover, the view of the sunrise from the Chandrashila peak is a visual treat.  The first rays of the sun kissing the peaks of the Chaukhamba are surely going to take the breath away.

Tips: If you want to view the sunrise from Chandrashila, then it is advisable to stay at Tunganath at night. Please carry enough warm clothes, as it gets really cold in the morning.

 

Ella Rock in Sri Lanka

While Sri Lanka may be world famous for its beautiful beaches, my personal favorite is Lankan hill country with its gorgeous mountain ranges and tea plantations. A small town of Ella, although touristy, is especially charming and dear to my heart. Every time I return to the island I make sure to include Ella in my itinerary and hike up Ella Rock for stunning mountain views.

The main difficulty is to find the way to the rock from Ella town since there are no signs and not much information online on how to access it. Your best hint is to follow the railroad and walk south for a few kilometers until you come across a turn to the left that will take you to the bridge. There are many ways up the rock varying in length and difficulty so it’s a good idea to have a guide walk with you.

Don’t worry about finding a guide, he will find you. Usually, once you cross the bridge locals will offer to take you up the rock for Rs 2000 – 3000 ($15-20). You can find your way up alone too, but having a guide will definitely make your hike faster and less stressful. Make sure to wear hiking boots, there’s no proper road and it gets very slippery after the rain. Another important tip: go early in the morning before it becomes too hot. Besides, later in the day it can get misty and you won’t be able to see much once you reach the top.   

 

The Most Dangerous Hike in the World, Hua Shan Plank Walk, China

From Adventures Around Asia

My whole body was shaking as I unclipped my harness around the first bolt in the rock. Is this sane? What am I doing here?!

I began to lower myself down, facing away from the mountain as if the “ladder” were stairs rather than thin metal bars nailed to a cliff crevice. Legs shaking, I stepped onto the plank and took a big look down. My heart thundered in my chest as I thought about how long it would take for me to die if I slipped off the plank… No, don’t think about that.

I looked up and saw an eagle soar through the cliffs and into the sun. I smiled at how beautiful it all was. But I only had a moment to appreciate the splendor before I had to slip under another climber’s harness. After all, the traffic on the tiny plank goes two ways!

 

Saint Petersburg, from the Colonnade of St. Isaac’s Cathedral in Russia

From Born Globals

Saint Petersburg is called the cultural capital of Russia. The Tsar Peter the Great dreamt of building a city from scratch – a symbol of power for the Russian Empire. And he did a great job – it still is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe today. Its stunning architecture in the center amazes on every step. Saint Petersburg’s most stunning viewpoint is on the colonnade of Saint Isaac’s Cathedral. To get there you need to climb 300 steps but the view is worth it. You can walk around the cathedral so you have a view on every side of the city. The most interesting view is to the east and north-east. You can see the Winter Palace, Peter and Paul Fortress and famous cathedrals from there.

 

National Day Performance in North Korea

This is a photo from the National Day preparations, the letters are made of children who rehearse for weeks for the perfect performance.

 

Sagarmatha National Park in Nepal

I share with you a picture of some of the tallest mountains in the world from the Sagarmatha National Park. This is the view of Mt. Ama Dablam, a mountain that is equally revered with Mt. Everest. You get this view on the way back from the Everest Base Camp from Lobuche village and where you have to take a right from the usual trail and trek towards the village of Dzongla just ahead of the Chola Pass. You will be taken aback by the size and beauty of these majestic mountains of the Nepal Himalayas. The mountains beyond Ama Dablam fall under the Makalu Barun National Park. Featured in this image are also other big mountains such Kang Taiga, Thamserku, etc. The valley that lies in between is the Imja Khola Valley where the river Imja flows through small villages such as Periche and Khumjung which takes you back to Namche.

 

Gergeti Glacier in Georgia

4:30 am, the alarm rang. Shit! It was raining. I wanted to start my hike to the glacier in the foot of Kazbeg at 5 am and to be at the Gergeti Trinity Church in time to watch the sunrise from there. I looked out from the window and it was clear that there won’t be any special sunrise, so I decided to wait for the rain to stop. 

At 5:45 am, I started the hike. At 6:30 am I was at the church. While hiking to the church through the woods, there was no view to the peak, so I didn’t know what is waiting for me when I get there. WOW! I was staying there and watching one of the most beautiful views that I have ever seen. Kazbeg was literally shining! I couldn’t take my eyes down from it. 

My whole solo hike to the Gergeti Glacier was an amazing experience. Seriously, visit Georgia, it’s an astounding country and I assure you that you will fall in love with it.

 

Zao Onsen in Yamagata, Japan

Zao Onsen is a small town located near Yamagata in Northern Japan. People usually travel there to ski in winter or get a good look at the snow monsters (a natural phenomena that makes the trees on the mountainside look like monsters when the snow accumulates on them and makes them bend and take on strange shapes), but one of the rare treats is also the views of the town you get after visiting the snow monsters when coming back down in the cable car. After being trapped in a snow storm with those white creepy monsters, the town of Zao Onsen becomes a very welcoming sight: partly because the clouds recede and the sun shines down, but mainly because of the opportunity it affords to finally thaw out those frozen fingers and toes in one of the many natural and picturesque hot springs that the town itself boasts.

 

Bhainsrorgarh Fort in Rajasthan, India

This epic viewpoint if at the top of a small fort near the city of Kota in Rajasthan, India called Bhainsrorgarh Fort. It is a living fort meaning that there are still inhabitants living within the fort walls and the settled citizens presently number about 5000. The fort is small in size but given that the surroundings consist of a huge river, its tributary emptying its muddy waters from one side and paddy fields stretching all the way to the nearest city of Kota in the distance, it offers a wonderful view one can stare at for hours. The raging river is infested with crocodiles which can often be seen popping up at intervals or sunning themselves on the banks on either side, though it is quite possible that they might be mistaken for debris or pieces of logs floating away. Due to the lack of any significant structure for miles, it is possible to be literally blown away by heavy gusts of sudden winds while watching the sun go down in the horizon bathing you, the sky and the river in a beautiful shade of orange.

It is little off the main highway leading up to to Chittorgarh and is about 50 Km from the nearest big city of Kota. We drove up to the fort and didn’t come across any buses leading up to it, however, given that such a huge population lives out there, it is quite possible to have a steady bus connection to the place. Also, part of it has been converted into a heritage boutique luxury hotel and its possible to rent a room and have the current royal family as your neighbors.

 

Laozhai Mountain in Xingping, China

It only takes 30 minutes to get up to the top of Laozhai Mountain in Xingping, China…but it’s probably going to be one of the most intense 30-minute hikes you’ve done. It’s steep all of the way and you’re clasping at nooks and crannies as you hoist yourself up ladders and rocky surfaces. With sweat dripping from your brow when you reach the top however, it is completely worth the effort. For maximum beauty, make sure to get on the same level with the birds at sunset.

Xingping is one of the most beautiful places in China. So much so that it is printed on the country’s 20 yuan note. People flock to the outskirts of the tiny village to see the infamous Li River scene. Yet, tourists rarely actually stay in the village and explore the surrounding countryside.

Stay here and hike up Laozhai Mountain! 

 

Nong Khiaw, Laos

 

From Explorer on a Budget

Nong Khiaw, undoubtedly, was my highlight in Laos. Initially, I just passed through to reach Muang Ngoi. Only on my way back, I fell under its spell. The area is laid back, it’s not too crowded and I met lots of interesting folks. One afternoon we decided to go to its renowned viewpoint at Phadeng Peak. The path starts inconspicuously from a private property on the side of the road (cross the bridge and follow the signs; entrance fee: 20,000 kip). While walking through a steep, dense forest for 40 minutes, I honestly didn’t expect that we would have a view after all. Turns out, we have an incredibly panoramic 360° view from the top! Mountains in all directions, the lush green forest and us – how incredible is that! It was the perfect place to round the evening off with our brought-along beers while gazing at the setting sun.

Final note: Bring a torch, it’s really dark in the forest at night.

 

Sun Moon Lake, Taiwan

Pictured here is Sun Moon Lake that sits at the base of Taiwan’s rugged central mountains, and is one of the island’s most stunning landscapes and most popular outdoor destinations. It not only has a somehow beautifully sounding name, its views are stunning as well. The best way to get there is to rent a car in Taiwan’s capital city of Taipei. Due to the fact that driving cars in Taiwan is pretty easy, it shouldn’t be a problem at all to get there. When arriving from North you enter a loop road that goes all around the lake, giving you different views every few meters. The most beautiful one is definitely at Wen Wu Temple that lies at the back of Sun Moon Lake. Stop and enjoy the shimmering silver-blue of the lake that is perfectly staged with a surrounding of high grown palms.

 

Mount Elbrus, Russia

Mt. Elbrus, the highest peak in Europe is a stunning volcanic peak located in the Caucasus Mountains of Russia. This mountain is a favorite destination for climbers attempting to conquer the world’s highest peaks. On a clear day, Elbrus boasts stunning views over the Caucasus mountain range. To get to the highest viewpoint in Russia and Europe is a challenge that should not be taken lightly. Temperatures dropped to -20C during the night of our climb. We were very lucky that the clouds cleared giving us spectacular views just after sunrise.

 

Genghis Khan Statue in Mongolia

Anyone with a vague idea of Asian History will have heard of Genghis Khan and his Mongol empire who at one point oversaw the world’s largest continuous empire. Mongolia is associated with Genghis Khan and the largest equestrian statue in the world is of none else than Genghis himself. The statue is about an hour’s drive from Ulaanbaatar, the capital. You can climb up to his head and have sweeping views of the traditional steppes that are so famous of Mongolia.

 

Cemoro Lawang in Indonesia

This amazing view of Cemoro Lawang is from the edge of the Tengger Caldera on Java, Indonesia right near Mount Bromo.  Cemoro Lawang is a tiny village that is great for backpackers looking to explore Mount Bromo and if you get up for a sunrise hike to the crater’s rim you’ll have chance to spot this epic view with a sea of clouds rolling in as the golden rays of morning hail a new day coming.

From the same viewpoint you can see Mount Bromo constantly erupting along with Mount Semeru and Mount Batok.  These three volcanoes make it well worth visiting Cemoro Lawang for a few days if you find yourself on Java.  Better yet make Mount Bromo at sunrise your reason for visiting this magical island and you’ll find lots of Instagrammable viewpoints on your journey.


And what about something from my own Asian adventures? Here ya go… 🙂

One of my fav pics of all time – me right after rock climbing to the top of this epic cliff face on Tonsai in Thailand! Talk about views!! More info here.

 

Kawah Ijen in Indonesia is also a hike I’ll never forget… That’s an acid lake down there and I’m essentially surrounded by volcanoes, while in one, and just moments ago, when it was pitch black out, I saw blue flames coming up from the ground. Yeah… more info here!

 

Ah, and this gem… This is me on the Great Wall of China and I’m practically alone! Crazy, I know. Especially when you’re used to all those crazy hoards of tourist type pics! Most info here.

 

So have you bought a plane ticket yet? That’s what I thought 😉

Have you been to an epic viewpoint that I should know about?
