Video by @bertiegregory. extreme climber alejo sanchez descends down an enormous rock face deep in the heart of the unexplored chiribiquete national park, colombia (turn sound on to hear him singing!). when he reached the bottom of this cliff, he made a remarkable discovery. he found a massive panel of ancient paintings featuring jaguars, people and more. this area is home to many of these paintings, representing some of the earliest evidence of humans in the amazon. i shot this whilst accompanying a team from fundacion herencia, an incredible group of people doing real 21st century exploration. it’s very humbling to know that there are still places on this planet we know almost nothing about. but despite it’s remoteness, it is still under threat. we owe a huge thanks to parks colombia and the colombian ministry of culture for their support. for more on this place, stay tuned for @stevewinterphoto ‘s upcoming jaguar story for @natgeo magazine. also stayed tuned for our jaguar tv show for @natgeowild premiering in the us on december 10th. follow @bertiegregory for more wildlife adventures!

natgeotravel Photo by @andrea_frazzetta // the potala palace. buddhist monks and worshippers come to lhasa from all over tibet in order to pray at this major sacred site. the potala, winter palace of the dalai lama since the 7th century, symbolizes tibetan buddhism and its central role in the traditional administration of tibet. the complex, comprising the white and red palaces with their ancillary buildings, is built on red mountain in the centre of lhasa valley, at an altitude of 3,700m. follow @andrea_frazzetta to know more about my next projects #lhasa #tibet #natgeotravel

natgeotravel Photo by @carltonward // this thanksgiving day in the united states, i am thankful for wild places and the chance to explore them, especially the swamps of south florida where i’ve been setting camera traps for florida panthers for the past two years through grants from @natgeo. check @carltonward for a view of this same location in the dry season with a different type of wild creature. i hope we can all work to preserve the lands and waters that generations of conservationists before us worked so hard to protect. #pathofthepanther #floridawild @fl_wildcorridor #keepflwild. #swamp #cypress #explore #adventure @natgeocreative

natgeotravel Photo @stephen_matera // aerial view of eldorado peak at sunrise in winter. the window of the plane was open so i wouldn't have to shoot through plexiglass. the air temperature was 3 degrees. i had difficulty just holding my camera because my fingers were numb. but it was so worth it. i've been fortunate enough to stand in the summit of this 8, 868' peak (in summer!) in the heart of the north cascades. follow me @stephen_matera for more images like this from washington and around the world. #aerialphotography #northcascades #winter #sunrise

Video by @babaktafreshi the world at night project from this vantage point on the southern coast of australia, there is no landmass between you and antarctica, an immense space covered with the southern ocean. the view towards the south is amazingly dark due to absence of any lights. it was breathtaking to watch the galaxy sinking in the ocean. follow me @babaktafreshi to explore more of our planet’s wonders under stars. #timelapse #australia #victoria #greatoceanroad #southernocean #milkyway #nightscape #astrophotography #nightsky #nightphotography #stargazing @natgeo @natgeocreative

natgeotravel Photo by @franslanting everyone lucky enough to make contact with a mountain gorilla comes away with a powerful feeling of kinship. i captured this silverback in a pensive mood as he was sitting hunched during a downpour in the highlands of rwanda’s virunga mountains, one of the last strongholds for these remarkable great apes. this image is featured in our new book “into africa," which is based on our @natgeo exhibition of the same name. follow me @franslanting for more intimate images and videos that confirm the fundamental kinship we share with all great apes. @thephotosociety #gorilla #mountaingorilla #greatapes #rwanda #wildlife

natgeotravel Photo by @danwestergren // #sponsored by @visit_arizona // the setting sun casts an incredible glow over post thunderstorm clouds in arizona’s monument valley. i arrived one afternoon at oljato-monument valley navajo tribal park in an absolute downpour. i had received a call from my navajo guide telling me that the scheduled sunset drive through the park was cancelled. “they’ve closed the road because it’s turned to mud,” he told me on the phone. deciding to drive to the park anyway, i waited out the pouring rain and was treated to an unbelievable light-show as the clouds broke up just in time for sunset. // even once you see it in person, you may still doubt it’s real. plan your [un]real arizona getaway. #visitarizona

natgeotravel Photo by @taylorglenn // this young lion is the definition of cute but in short time he will develop into a sophisticated and dangerous predator. we came across him while exploring etosha national park and observed him with his pride as they resided over a fresh kill. it was fascinating to watch him follow and mimic other members of the group and clear that he is quickly learning the ways of his inevitable place atop the food chain here in africa. #lion #namibia #wildlife // follow @taylorglenn for more from namibia and beyond.

natgeotravel Photo by @max.lowe // the ancient stone figures that stand watch over the tiny island of rapa nui, known to much of the world as easter island, still represent an anthropological mystery unlike most any other. although there are many theories as to their origin and meaning, to the people native to rapa nui, the stone men embody a concrete and humble reminder that they, and indeed all of us, stand on the shoulders of those who came before. to see more #travelphotography from around the world follow @max.lowe

natgeotravel Photo by @carltonward // the econlockhatchee is one of my favorite rivers in florida. it begins in orlando and flows east to its confluence with the st. johns river, which flows northwards (like the nile) to the atlantic ocean in jacksonville. rivers unite and sustain us, while not always seen or appreciated. both originating in central florida, the evergaldes and st. johns watersheds encompass the entire length of the florida peninsula. please follow @carltonward to see more of my vision for keeping keeping florida connected and wild. #river #palms #floridawild #keepflwild @fl_wildcorridor @natgeocreative

natgeotravel Photo by @jodymacdonaldphoto // the sky and ocean serve as an amazing backdrop to this ancient fortified city. essaouira’s history as a vital moroccan trading port is best captured while walking along the medina, a unesco world heritage site of atlantic seawalls and imposing ramparts. do it when the sun begins to set and the colors and hues of the sun bleached structures come alive and make you feel like you have gone back in time. #morocco #africa
