С таким безумный видом на Victoria Falls мы уже третий день начинаем сплав по легендарной реке Замбези. . Высочайшие стенки каньона с огромным, более 1000 кубовом расходом воды со всеми вытекающими структура...я думаю речка-мечта для большинства каякеров, но для меня точно 🥰 . 📷@lilu_key @kayakerru #jknirvana #jacksonkayak #astralfootwear #selectpaddle #kayakafrica #zambezi #kayakzambezi #victoriafalls #africaadventure #wwschool_africa

Recent analysis done by Faraway Garden Furniture looked at hashtags to reveal which parks were tagged the most on Instagram. The admission fees for each park was also analysed, ascertaining if there was a correlation between the most tagged and the most expensive.

Yosemite, US, which only has a $20 entry fee, came out on top as the most popular National Park on Instagram with more than 4 million hashtags. Los Glaciares, Argentina is the least popular with a mere 30 531 hashtags. Still not too bad in hashtag world.

Africa has four parks on the list, including Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, the Kruger National Park in South Africa, Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, and the Tanzanian part of the Serengeti.

The most expensive National Park in the world is the Galapagos ($100), which, despite it being so expensive, came in at 8th position.

Here is the top 20 list with the amount of hashtags:

1. Yosemite (US) - 4 067 845

Well I guess this picture pretty much says it all. Today. Was. Spectacular. Adam and I both loved climbing the Barranco Wall, which had a variety of spectacular views for me (I mean, look at that mountain behind us – I still can’t believe we’ll be up there in less than two days!) and lots of clambering and rock climbing for Adam. Climbing up rocks like a monkey is pretty much his all-time favorite activity. We’ve had several great ascents on this trek already, but this was definitely our favorite day so far. Adam seems to be acclimatizing well after his brutal bout of altitude sickness yesterday. He’s still got a small altitude headache, but it’s manageable. I’m a little worried about myself health-wise because I’m starting to get a sore throat, and a virus is NOT what I need right now given that we’ll be climbing to base-camp tomorrow and then assaulting the summit at midnight tomorrow night. In other words, just one more hike up to 15,000 feet, a few hours of rest, and then the hardest physical test we’ve ever faced. We’re trying not to stress too much about summitting, and instead just enjoying a beautiful day in one of the most visually spectacular places on earth. . . . . . #mountainlife #mountaintop #mountainlove #mountainviews #kilimanjaro #mountainphotography #mountainlovers #mountainlover #lovemountains #lovehiking #ilovemountains #adventurephotography #adventurephotographer #speechlessplaces #livetoexplore #livetotravel #optoutside #idhikethat #liveyouradventure #liveyourdream #beadventurous #livewithpassion #traveltogether #findyouradventure #couplelove
