Our Facebook community have taken the #footselfie to new heights – from the Atlas Mountains' highest peak in Morocco, along China's Great Wall, to the base of Everest.

We asked our followers to share what their most memorable "feet up" moments were from their past adventures and chose our favourite, which left us dreaming of where we could be right now. Which is your favourite?

Atlas Mountains | By Jake Shearer

A photo to take your breath away. Jake shared his stellar summit views from the top of Toubkal (4,167m) in Morocco's High Atlas mountains.


Kazbegi, Georgia | By Jaclyn Lofts

Pour us a glass of wine too Jac! Those valley views in Georgia are definitely worth putting your feet up to admire, especially after a day exploring it.

Everest region, Nepal | By Jen Cope

Jen enjoyed a well-earned rest day at our Dingboche campsite en route to Everest Base Camp.

Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, Tasmania | By Harry Ebsworth

A visit to Australia's island state is not complete without hiking to the iconic Cradle Mountain.

Antarctica | By Carrie Page

Adventurers with their feet up on a cruise to the breathtaking Antarctic Peninsula. Definitely an experience of a lifetime!

Karakoram, Pakistan | By Susie Godfrey

Imagine opening your tent to these views. Susie shared this beauty from her K2 trek.

San Juan Island, US | By Tina Woodley-Roberts

Tina enjoyed time in the waters of Friday Harbour – it's island kayaking at its best.

Everest Base Camp, Nepal | By David Spiteri

An achievement worth jumping your heels up for after days of trekking at altitude to Everest Base Camp. Nice one David!

Costa Rica | By Jim Porritt

Trekking in the Costa Rican rainforest affords a verdant nature escape worth stopping and capturing – even when on a Coast to Coast challenge.

Andes Mountains, Peru | By Armed Fourie

Now that's a quality tent view to wake up to! Armed took in this mountain spectacle on the Salcantay Trek.

Larapinta, Northern Territory, Australia | By Kath Miles

This picture conjures two words: celestial isolation. Kath appreciating the ancient Aussie landscape on the Larapinta Trail.

Mustang, Nepal | By Michelle Nicholas

Who wouldn't want to put their feet up, relax in their tent and just soak up the beautiful surrounds of the Himalaya's Mustang Valley?

Altai Mountains, Mongolia | By Allan Tipon

We just love this photo captured in Tavan Bogd National Park en route to Malchin Peak.

Chichén Itzá, Mexico | By David Spiteri

Visiting the ancient pyramids of Mexico with a fun travel photo to match.

Snow Lake, Pakistan | By Piers Dumaresq

This glacial basin is just one of the wonderful nature escapes found in Pakistan's Karakoram range.

Gokyo Valley, Nepal | By Alison Kniha

More mountain magic in the Nepalese Himalayas. For Alison, her memorable adventure travel moment was admiring Everest from Gokyo Ri.

China | By David Spiteri

A walk along China's Great Wall just isn't complete for David without an iconic "feet up" moment.

Blue Mountains, Australia | By Lisa Grant

A different sort of "feet up" moment, but a snug tent experience you've surely had. Lisa shares an amusing photo from her Six Foot Track adventure in New South Wales' Blue Mountains region.
