The best photographs of the month of January - 2014


The best photographs of the month of January. As every month we return to make a brief review with a selection of photographs from last month. It shows that we are in winter because of the amount of photographs we publish with snow or with a winter aspect. We have had two major routes through the Central System with impressive panoramic views, such as the Pico del Lobo and the majesticPeñalara In addition, already in the Pyrenees one of the most beautiful valleys in Spain, the Aran Valley.

Leaving Spain we visit the enigmaticClonmacnoise Monastery In Ireland. We still have much to tell about this colorful country.

We have remembered again Myanmarwith a bike route around the wonderful Inle Lake. Further south, in our antipodes, one of our trips last summer, New Zealand, with one of the best glaciers in the southern hemisphere.

We hope you enjoy a selection of the photos you can see on the trips of the month of January.

Trekking. Ascension to Pico del Lobo

Not far from the Segovia Riaza is a small reservoir or pontoon calledRiofrio Reservoir, one of the multiple points to ascend to the highest mountain in theAyllón mountain range, the Pico del Lobo, with 2,274 m high and located in the province of Guadalajara.

Ireland. Clonmacnoise monastery

Halfway to Galway, departing from Dublin, is theClonmacnoise Monastery. A place that has lived better times but in turn retains a special charm. Strolling through its innumerable Celtic crossings and dreaming about what once was this place, becomes an essential stop on any trip toIreland.

Myanmar Bike route on Inle Lake

We leave behind the bustling piers that leave for Inle Lake fromNyaungshwe. Many say that the only option to see the lake is to take one of those large barges that leave south of the lake. But if you want to access less tourist spots, villages that are born in the mountains and end up on the shore of the lake or simply if you want to end up in a hidden monastery or in a winery of questionable quality, the only option is to make a routebicycle.

Guadarrama Peñalara from the Farm

The newly appointedGuadarrama National Park It contains numerous hiking trails among which is the ascent toPeñalara, the highest peak in the Sierra with2429m of altitude. Most of them leave from the Community of Madrid, specifically from theCotos Port, thanks to its low physical and technical difficulty. Today we have decided to tell you the experience from the Segovian face, with something more of a physical requirement than the previous one, but with the same lack at the technical level.
