Top Ten Treks

Creating a list of the top ten treks in the world is a very subjective endeavor. Since the definition of a great trek varies from person to person, there can be no definitive list that all will agree with. Indeed, each trek listed here is not listed using the same qualifications. While treks like the Everest Base Camp Trek, the Inca Trail, and Kilimanjaro have a definitive goal at the end, others like our Kachin Village Trek are included because of its uniqueness.

Here is our top ten. Each of these treks is a trek we have completed. Please note the treks are not listed in any order.
