Wilderness trekking holidays

Wilderness trekking holidays

The world’s truly wild places are few and far between these days as we humans tend to get everywhere. Wilderness trekking holidays take place where you will meet virtually no other hikers, in locations that are almost raw in their beauty. Most require a reasonable but not super level of fitness, and often require camping. Examples include the Khangai Mountains of Mongolia or the Maliau Basin of Borneo.

Langtang Valley trekking holiday, Nepal
The guides know the families who run the Tea Houses where we stayed ,and on many occasions we were greeted as old friends ! Also by being in a small group the impact on the environment and in the villages we stayed was not as significant as if we'd been in a larger group. (more)Jane Elliott
The western and Nepali guides and porters were great - always smiling and ready to make sure everyone was happy. An excellent trip in all aspects. (more)patricia barber

Chomolhari trekking holiday, Bhutan
Memorable parts? Lots. The friendly people who seemed enjoyed to have their photo's taken. The scenery, the hundreds of prayer flags. As we trekked at high altitude, the many people we met driving horses, cows & yaks. But the best experience was caused by a mistake. On one night of the trek we lost our horses & luggage! Our clean socks & toothbrush went one way & we went another. Our guide rescued the situation by arranging us to stay in a yak-herders hut. The family very kindly took... (more)Alan Reimer

Atlas Mountain trekking holiday in Morocco
Memorable parts? Trekking up to the high passes and looking out over the valley with a refreshing mint tea. Tips? Take clothes for all occasions!
