A Trek For Every Month: Top Hikes Around The World (December, January & February)


While it’s possible to hike all the way to the top of Aconcagua, we’d recommend you hike around the great peak instead. 🙂

best treks in Nepal

Updated after our November 2014 visit.


There are many more great hikes in Nepal! … This list just scratches the surface.

I’m looking at Makalu Base Camp for my next trip. Perhaps November 2015.

Rogier Gruys is a hiking & travel expert. He’s hiked in Canada, Sweden, Norway, Yukon, Ghana, West Papua (Indonesia), Mongolia.  Rogier spent a lot of time trekking in the Bhutanese Himalayas, and edited a dayhiking guide to Thimphu.

One day browsing our top 10 hiking towns of the world, Rogier noted that we have Banff, Alberta, Canada listed.

In Rogier’s opinion, hiking out of Jasper, Alberta is even better than out of Banff.

Check out  the Jasper National Park home page. And hiking page. It is great. Here I am at wonderful Mt Robson.

Rogier Gruys knows far more about the Canadian Rockies than I ever will. We’ve annotated our top 10 hiking towns list to mention both Jasper and … Canmore, Alberta. Another strong candidate. 🙂

Not a bad list. 🙂

The Inca Trail should be deleted, however. It’s not even the best trek to Machu Picchu.

And this website is boycotting recommending Pakistan since 11 mountaineers were murdered at Nanga Parbat Basecamp in 2013.
