10 Best Hiking Trails In The World

Lace up your boots and choose your trail! These are some of the most interesting hiking trails in the world that challenge both your physical and mental strength.

1. Inca Trail, Peru

2. Glenbrook Gorge Track, Australia

Take a Blue Mountain tour down the Glenbrook Gorge. Only 3 km long, this dynamic track will get your heart pumping. There is a good chance that you will get off-track lured by the beauty of the surrounding bush. Treat yourself to a refreshing dip in Jellybean Pool after you have completed the challenge.

3. Mt Kilimanjaro, Tanzania

Rainforests, glaciers, snowfields, moorland, deserts, and savannah, or in one word – Mt Kilimanjaro.  Choose your way to the roof of Africa wisely, because your summit can be a success or a failure. Sleep under the stars because you will probably never be as close to them again.

4. The Narrows, USA

You can traverse the hike in one day, but we recommend taking in the dramatic winding canyons and sheer red walls at a more leisurely pace.

5. Torres del Paine Circuit, Patagonia

The diversity of the scenery and splendour of the nature at the southern tip of South America can hardly be topped. There are massive glaciers, ice floes, stunning volcanic landscapes, and steppe-like plains stretching as far as the eye can see. Your camera will overheat down here.
