How’s your wanderlust doing? Maybe it’s the gloomy weather as I write this, or maybe it’s because I’ve loved reading the articles in this issue, but my feet are seriously itching. I want to gawk at Nepal’s incredible scenery (p58), hang out in Mexico on Día de los Muertos (p44) or celebrate an elephant success story (p94). Oh, to be chilling in a bamboo house in Bali (p76) or mooching around the little-visited east coast of Portugal’s Algarve (p80). One of the highlights of the Wanderlust calendar is always our Travel Photo of the Year competition (p108) – still the UK’s biggest and best amateur travel photography competition. Send us your top images and you could be heading off to Texas on an amazing trip next year. Now there’s another place…

Alex Treadway Cover photographer Alex’s 15-year career reflects a passion for the world around him. From capturing life in remote Nepalese hospitals to snapping stories in the Himalaya mountains, he loves a challenge. My save-the-world tip: “I always carry a steel bottle, as synthetic fibres leach microplastics into the environment. The app ‘Good On You’ is great – it rates fashion brands on eco impact and suggests ethical alternatives, too.” Sara Wheeler Interview Sara’s long been drawn to the planet’s most extreme places – she was the first female writer-in-residence at the South Pole, and spent seven months researching in Antarctica. Her latest book sees her cross eight of Russia’s time zones on the trail of its literary greats (p34). My save-the-world tip: “I don’t have a car – I get trains everywhere in the UK. And I’ve got…

“He who climbs upon the highest mountains laughs at all tragedies, real or imaginary.”Friedrich Nietzsche King of the mountain Simien Mountains, Ethiopia Photographer: Marco Gaiotti The Simiens sit on many a canny traveller’s bucket list and its not hard to see why – this simmering massif is home to the gelada. With fur like a coiffured ‘80s rock god and a bright slash of red across its chest (it’s known as the ‘bleeding heart monkey’), this endemic Ethiopian primate defies convention in many ways. They spend their days not in trees but grazing in herds, making them easy for visitors to spot on the rocky hiking trails. © ClickAlps /AWL Images Running wild Aigues-Mortes, Camargue, France Photographer: Francesco Riccardo Iacomino The sight of horses crashing through the shallows of the Camargue in full gallop is an unforgettable sight for…

The deep midwinter I’ve enjoyed reading and being inspired by Wanderlust for many years, and have recently started subscribing, so I thought I’d pass on a little of my own inspiration for anyone thinking about trekking to Everest Base Camp. December is ‘off-season’, but don’t let the slightly lower temperatures deter you. It was so quiet; we were nearly always the only group in our teahouse. From September to November you’ll find terrible queues on the trails and bridges, as well as in the teahouses, whereas in December you don’t have to worry about any of that. You get to enjoy the entire mountains all to yourself – it’s much more peaceful. Plus, it’s the dry season, so the visibility is incredible. I experienced the best stargazing of my life here, with…
