Trekking in Asia


Trekking is a form of hiking or walking through mountainous, rugged or rough areas. It is a sport which most often takes place in beautiful mountain ranges. When trekking in Asia, the hiker gets the opportunity to experience the beauty and uniqueness of the Himalayas. The Himalayas have the largest mountain peaks in the world and stretches across six countries in Asia. So it goes without saying that when trekking in Asia, it is definitely going to be worth visiting the Himalayas. The six countries of the Himalayas are Bhutan, China, Nepal, India, Pakistan and Afghanistan.

The different countries in Asia hold different types of treks and tours. However, because they all hold the same mountain ranges their treks can be quite similar and easily found on any directory for any of the six countries. When trekking in Asia it is important to note that it is not the same as climbing and everyone, young or old, can partake in a trek. Different treks have different distances and level of difficulty, so it is up to the discretion of the trekker to decide what level is best suited to them.

Because of the different levels of difficulty of the treks, the distances are usually better calculated in time it takes to complete the trek rather than distance covered. Treks can go over a period of one day to a few weeks. The hikers do not have to be walking the whole time though and a lot of the longer treks have days off to discover the country and nature at your own pace. Once started on a trail for the day however, the group must meet their destination for the day or they will find themselves in a spot of trouble as concerns the sleeping arrangements.

When trekking in Asia the group has the choice of either sleeping in tea house huts that are situated along the trail or camping out in the nature in tents. If you go with an organised group it is often planned that you do not have to carry your tents and sleeping equipment but rather they are ready and waiting for you when you arrive at your campsite at the end of the day. This is one of the many advantages of trekking with an organised company when trekking.

Trekking in Asia is a unique experience enjoyed by those of you who like to be active and adventurous at the same time. It is a lovely way to experience the true beauty of nature and to spend some time appreciating it too.
