Switzerland’s Aletsch Glacier is the biggest in the Alps at 14 miles in length.
Most visitors take in the view from above the car-free mountain villages of Bettmeralp and Riederalp without setting foot on this mighty river of ice, which moves about 30cm a day on average, and whose tongue is made from snow that fell 800 years ago.
It’s a rarer and still more awe-inducing experience to put crampons on your boots, rope yourself to a mountain guide and scale the glacier edge – the height of a two-storey house – to explore it’s strange and ever-changing surface.
Here, streams of meltwater snake across the ice, and plunge into potholes with an echo from the frozen depths.

In the Khmer language, Angkor simply means ‘city’. At its peak a thousand years ago, it was home to nearly a million people, and covered a greater area than any city before the Industrial Age.
This ancient metropolis at the Cambodia emerged from jungle-cloaked obscurity in the 19th century to astound Western imaginations, but locals had never completely abandoned its temples, some Hindu, some Buddhist in inspiration.
Angkor Wat is the most famous: it’s the world’s largest religious structure, a representation in stone of the Hindu universe and the star of a massive temple city built by dozens of rulers who considered themselves part god, part king. Monks still pray in its incense filled halls.
Elsewhere on the vast site is the Bayon, where a forest of carved heads bestows vague smiles on visitors, and Ta Prohm, left much as the rest of Angkor once was, with silk cotton trees enveloping the ancient blocks of sandstone.

Very nice
Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured. Mark Twain
