1. Pura Ulun Danu Bratan, Bali, Indonesia- This famous water temple dedicated to Lord Shiva Hindu god. Located on Lake Bratan surrounded by the beautiful Bedugul Mountains. It was built in 1663, it is used for the ceremony praising Dewi Danu the Bali water goddess. You can hire a car for $45 (500,000 Indonesian rupiah) a day and explore the mountains. In the same area you can enjoy the Bali Botanical Gardens, canyoning down waterfalls, and my favorite trekking. I cant wait to experience the serenity of this beautiful place.
5. Everest Base Camp, Nepal - Since I have given up all hope of actually climbing Mount Everest, I have settled on Everest Base Camp. I climbed to Throng La Pass 5,416 metres (17,769 ft) a little less than 2 years ago, so Everest Base Camp 5,364 metres (17,598 ft)will be a piece of cake, right? From Lukla it takes 9 days to reach the base camp. With 2580m (8,464ft) of elevation gain its a somewhat grueling hike. Maybe at the bottom of Everest I will have some inspiration and next thing you know I might be on my way up to the top...probably not, but I can dream.
Anyone want to join me?
