Cradle Mountain & the Walls of Jerusalem

My 16 year old son and I have just finished the Cradle Mountains & Walls of Jerusalem walk and, while driving home, we were reflecting on why it was so rewarding and so much fun.

We expected spectacular scenery and plant life, and they were spectacular. We expected challenging terrain and weather, and they were challenging. We didn't expect such exceptional guides and that is why I am writing to you.

Tim is obviously a very experienced, capable and knowlegeable guide and I probably can't tell you anything you don't already know about him. He is a thorough professional. We always felt safe but challenged. I was impressed with his efforts in finding us interesting things to see and do in the Walls when the weather didn't allow us to visit the usual places. I also thought he handled the stop-over in Mole Creek due to flooding with a good combination of leadership and humour and it turned out to be a trip highlight!

So, the thing is, the environment we visited was every bit as spectacular, challenging and rewar ding as we had hoped for. What made this holiday exceptional was your wonderful guides.My son and I have thanked them, but we wanted to let you know as well.

Maldives

Maldives

Take an adventure sailing holiday to the MALDIVES with World Expeditions, one of the world’s leading travel companies.


The Maldives are located southwest of Sri Lanka, on the equator and consist of 1,190 coral islands, forming an archipelago of 26 major atolls. The Maldives stretch 820 kilometers north to south and 120 kilometers east to west. Only 202 of the 1190 islands are inhabited and of these 87 are exclusive resort islands.

The origins of the Maldivian’s are lost in antiquity, but history reveals that the islands have been populated for over 3,000 years ago. Early settlers were travellers on the Silk Route and from the Indus Valley Civilization. Inherently warm, friendly and hospitable by nature, it is easy to feel comfortable and relaxed with a Maldivian.

On World Expeditions sailing adventures in the Maldives you will swim and snorkel the magical waters coming face to face with the amazing plethora of sea life. During the day your boat will cruise between islands, and at night your boat will moore off remote islands with small settlements, a world away from the resorts.

The Weather in Maldives

The Maldives enjoys a hot tropical climate. There are two monsoons, the southwest from May to October and the northeast from November to April. Generally the southwest brings more wind and rain in June and July. The temperature of Maldives ranges between 24°C and 33°C throughout the year. Although the humidity is relatively high, the constant sea breezes help to keep the air moving.

The best time to visit is November to April. It is advised to wear lightweight cottons and linens throughout the year and pack light waterproofs are advised during the rainy season.
