Top 10 hiking trails on the planet part 2

Top 10 hiking trails on the planet part 2

We’re that bit closer to spring today, even though that season is still a ways off, so we thought of continuing our look at the top 10 hiking trails on the planet, to prepare mentally for the slew of options available out there, once spring does decide to come around the Northern Hemisphere.

Nepal – Everest Base Camp

Rather an extreme hike to say the least, however the three-week trek that will get you to a height of 5,545m is something of a popular one with individuals looking for the boast of having been to the base of the world’s highest mountain.

Even when considering this somewhat superficial reasoning, the trek is truly spectacular and is definitely not for everyone, you have to be a bit of an experienced hiker to make it, and also you have to be used to acclimatizing yourself to the various heights that you’ll be reaching.

India – Indian Himalayas

We’re staying the region for this next one, so to speak, but in a different country. A considerably lower number of individuals trek on the Indian side of the Himalayas, so this is an option for those who are looking for a bit more isolation in their hiking. The most hardcore of hikers can undertake the 24-day hike across mountain tops from Spiti to Ladakh, which actually follows an ancient trade route, a very bleak and high-altitude desert terrain which Rudyard Kipling described in the following quite: ”Surely the gods live here; this is no place for men”.

Australia – Overland Track

The Overland Track can be found in Tasmania, in a region of wilderness that looks as if it has not changed since prehistoric man used to roam the same paths. This is a five- to six-day trek that snakes its way between the Cradle Mountain and Lake St. Clair. There’s a well-defined path, which is actually cobbled in some regions – passes craggy mountains, wonderful lakes, expansive forests and moorlands.


Visiting any of these places will be made that much easier with the help of some worldwide car hire services.
