One of the reasons I love Asia so much is because of the countless treks there are peppered across the continent. Living here in Asia allows me to go on these adventures, discovering countries from the inside out. Why not book a bespoke trekking holiday to Asia for you and your family, friends or within a small group. The sublime landscapes and numerous off-the-beaten paths make Asia the ideal trekking holiday destination.
From horseback riding in Sri Lanka to white water rafting in the Himalayas, an adventure holiday to Asia gifts you with memories your will cherish forever. Countries of the Himalayas offer countless hiking opportunities including Ladakh, Bhutan, Tibet and Nepal. Trekking across Asia means expert adventurers can hike at high altitudes across treacherous mountains whilst newbies will enjoy gentle hikes across flatter landscapes, each style providing you with memorable moments and experiences. Whilst you may not expect it, hiking trips are also widely available in less mountainous countries like Sri Lanka, Burma and Indonesia where you may find yourself climbing up active volcanoes. Shanti Travel Travel Experts are thrill seekers living in Asia so are able to advise you on the best treks that are most suited to your hiking abilities.
Trekking and adventure in Asia
What better way for nature lovers to immerse themselves in a new country and culture than by spending your days trekking and hiking through the lands, meeting the locals and observing traditions and customs? From the Himalayan mountains to the volcanoes of Indonesia, to the most beautiful rice terraces and tea plantations of Asia, share the passion for walking and discover Asia by foot.
The greatness of the Changtang Plateau plunging in the deep gorges of the Zanskar; the majestic summit of Uttaranchal carrying their echoes to the ancestral doors of Bhutan; the exuberance of the jungles that reach the edges of Darjeeling towering over the winding valleys of Nepal… So many places to discover, so many places to trek.
Whilst a trekking in the Himalayas may be considered by many as the Mecca of trekking, other regions of India and Asia also lend themselves to hiking. Enjoy walking through more unusual places: the volcanoes of Indonesia, in the midst of the tea plantations in Sri Lanka or right where a plethora of ethnic groups meet in Burma. Jungles, rice fields, mountains, volcanoes and deserts make up just some of the different landscapes that you can wander across and through on your trekking holiday.
