Award-winning photographer, Berta Tilmantaite, went hiking up the Himalayas two years ago and said it strongly impacted her life and she wanted to do something to help the victims of the earthquake. She has decided to share her breathtaking photographs of the stunning landscape and the memorable individuals she encountered living in the mountains, with all funds raised going to the people affected by the devastation. She told Bored Panda: "I will donate all the money for these prints to organisations and charities working now in Nepal."
There are few major life moments more memorable than the day you get engaged. For that reason, you want your proposal to be somewhere special, somewhere memorable, somewhere that looks great in pictures.So we can’t blame people for wanting to pop the question in a popular tourist destination. Getting down on one knee on top of the Eiffel Tower may seem wildly romantic in theory, but the reality is something quite different. Here at Yahoo Travel, we love love!

It’s debatable how successful Kim Kardashian has been at drawing attention to Armenian causes, but one survey suggests she’s been a world-class ambassador for drawing attention to Armenian women’s looks.
How great would it be if a flight attendant could anticipate your needs? Unfortunately they can’t read minds, but that could all change if a proposed airplane seat becomes a reality.
While many seasoned travellers tend to shy away from popular tourist haunts, it can be said sometimes you’ve just got to see every place at least once. Sure, the world’s most travelled paths aren’t quite what they used to be, but they still pack enough punch to make them worthy of your bucket list. Here are our picks:
Stories from trips to Phuket in Thailand are often littered with tales of late night antics in Patong. With its red light reputation, drinks with a punch and colourful local characters, it’s a destination many visit to indulge their excesses, not escape from them. But I discovered another side to the island and the Phuket experience through a three day detox.
As you travel around the world, it’s totally normal to encounter odd customs and traditions. But two recent trends in Asia are downright bizarre.
Bali has a reputation for being frantic and a bit of a party island but it doesn't have to be your experience. There are plenty of options to escape the hustle and bustle but still have the best relaxing holiday and the Holiday Inn Bali Benoa is one of them.
Space in the economy cabin is a common complaint and sometimes people dread the journey to their destination because of it and airlines are definitely aware of it.
With many places banning selfie sticks, it is getting harder to snap your perfect holiday pic on your own. One travel company is making the answer simple by sending photographers away with holidaymakers.
Back in 2000, I set out on my first post-college backpacking adventure, in Australia. By day, I sailed the Whitsunday Islands and snorkeled in the Great Barrier Reef. By night, I unfolded my own flat white sheet on an extra-long twin bed in a room with no bathroom and about 10 strangers, silently praying that none of them snored — or worse. This was hostel lodging.Fast forward more than a decade, and things have completely transformed in the budget accommodation department. Hostels all over the globe are adding design and comfort elements, making them more boutique hotel than college frat house. Cheap, it appears, can be chic. The only constant that remains is a strong sense of community, the unfortunate single supplement, and having to hand in your towel upon checkout. So don’t let the name mislead you. These 10 hostels, in cities big and small, both near and far, are too nice to ruin with any drunken debauchery. At least one can hope.
