Top Ten Treks in The World

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. I built the list by selecting the treks that appear on most top ten lists and adding a little bit of personal choice where the lists differed.

Having personally hiked all of the trails, I can give you a single, granted subjective view of whether or not each hike lives up to it's reputation. After going on a personal crusade to hike the world's ten best treks, I can tell you that the trails were not always as expected. Originally, when I wrote A Journey Along the World's Great Treks I didn't want to rank the individual hikes from 1 to 10. However, after giving many talks about the treks my passion for a few clearly percolate to the top, while others seem to always gravitate to the bottom. Check out the list below.
