Stand anywhere and click a photo, it is going to appear like a postcard. There are plenty of things that you can do here. If you are visiting Zermatt anytime soon, here are few things that you need to check out.

The Matterhorn

This is a famous peak in Switzerland and is as famous as Mount Fuji. However, do not try to climb it if you are not an expert mountaineer. The peak is shaped like a pyramid. This is a landmark that you will be able to marvel from a distance. There are several vantage points for this. I have to say the view was simply ethereal.

Klein Matterhorn

The next peak that mesmerized me was the Klein Matterhorn. This is 3,883 meters high. In order to get to the top, it took the aerial tramway. You will be surprised to know that this is the highest point in Europe which is accessible through this form of transport. When I reached the top, I found the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise. Here, you will find a tunnel that is going to lead you through Breithorn Plateau. The view at the top is just mesmerizing.


Do not forget to check out the highest-open air railway of Europe. The Gornergrat Bahn will take you up to the observation platform which is above 3000 meters. This railway had been laid down in 1896. It is fully electrified rack line of the world. The complete trip took thirty-three minutes and the train took us over the ravines and larch forest. Ultimately, you will arrive at the platform which is at the center of the tourist development.

Cabo San Lucas: Treat Yourself To A Trip With Natural Beauty

Nestled at the tip of Baja California, it is a city where the desert meets the ocean. Cabo San Lucas took my heart away with its natural beauty. Irrespective of where you are, you are simply a block away from a beach. That is the beauty of the city. Here, you can be a part of many outdoor activities, drink, dance, and have fun all night long. I planned a trip to Cabo San Lucas at the last minute. However, I have to say that it has left me spellbound. Here are some of the attractions you need to check out when you are in Cabo San Lucas.

  • Take a cruise to Watch Whale

If you want to the large and mighty whale, the Sea of Cortez is the place to be. The whale watching season might begin from early November. However, it usually runs from the month of December to the month of April every year. The water surrounding Cabo is the breeding hotspot. As a matter of fact, it is a migratory humpback for the whales. Hence, the chance to catch a glimpse of whales is pretty high.

  • Take a Dip in the Lover’s Beach Water

Divorce beach and lover’s beach is connected together in their own island Land’s End. The one looking into the bay is Lover’s Beach. The water is calm and is ideal for swimming. I couldn’t help taking a dip. However, Divorce waves have turbulent waves and you should avoid going swimming because of the unsafe conditions. Reach Lover’s Beach early as it gets crowded during the midday.

  • Kayaking, Parasailing, and Jet Skiing at Medano Beach

Love water sports? Visit the Medano Beach, the main beach of Cabo San Lucas. You can take part in kayaking, jet skiing, and parasailing.  There are several restaurants and bars where you will be able to kick and spend some time with a drink.

Katu Is The Destination You Must Look For

The place which has quite a sad history has now finally evolved into a beautiful, quiet travel destination. Famous for the cultural buzz, ethnic diversity, intricate history and social aspects of this township should be the reasons you embark on one of its two-wheel tours. The best way to see the municipality is to take a bike tour while sipping on some chilled drink (a chilled beer maybe) with your friend.

It is very strange to quote how the literal translation of this place which happens to lie on the north of the Windhoek area, goes with an unfortunate and depressing meaning that refers to a ‘place where no one intends to live’ which is entirely relatable to the deplorable and hard history which the district has been through.

We could witness how well the township had preserved its vibrant culture even though it is currently in severe poverty status. The place is a Must visit considering how real and raw visuals from the urban Namibia dwellers can be experienced considering hoe the area happens to be both safest as well as light on the pocket. The excursion that lasted for about 3.5 hours and that took on a bike, gave us an excellent chance to talk and interact with the residents from Katutura and also buy local crafts followed by the ever wanted food tasting wherein we cannot forget the Kapana meat which is traditional.

The local markets sell some perfect arts and craft items, house decors, clothes, and jewelry and foot wares.
