5 hiking trails to recharge your senses –
1. The Rustic GR20, France
Spanning 113 miles, GR20 is considered to be the toughest long distance trail in Europe. The 15 day hiking trail is divided into two parts and traverses Corsica. To complete this trail successfully, you must be in prime physical shape and should have a practice of walking on uneven paths. The physical hardships that you endure on your way to the summit are worth it, as a number of visual treats such as imposing mountain peaks, snow covered lands, dense forests and jewel-blue streams welcome you along the way.
2. The Wild Overland Track, Australia
Overland Track is one of Australia’s most famed treks. The original length of the track is 40 miles. That said, if you, like many other hikers want to hike around Lake St Clair, you will have to walk extra 11 miles. Typically, it takes around five to six days for hikers to complete this trail. On the way to the summit, you will cross several mountains, rainforests, plains and raging rivers, all of which conspire to display the vivid colors of nature on its canvas.
3. The Majestic Everest Base Camp, Nepal
Trekking to Mt. Everest, the highest peak in the world is not everyone’s cup of tea. That said, trekkers can experience the majesticness of the mystical peak by hiking to the Everest Base Camp. Hikers still need to be in prime physical shape to scale 5,364 metres (the peak’s altitude) and must be brave and experienced enough to not let the effect of altitude sickness get better of them. During the three week trek to the Camp, you will cross a number of peaks, valleys and landscapes.
4. The Expansive Kungsleden, Sweden
Dubbed as the ‘King’s Trail’, this trail covers an area of 270 miles and becomes a ski trail during the winter. The trail is divided into four sections that include rocky patches, swampy grounds and water bodies. A large portion of the area is managed by the County Board of Norrbotten. To help hikers cross rivers safely during the summer, the authority provides boats. Along the trail, many huts welcome hikers that they can hire for a small fee to rest for the day.
