One of the best reasons to hike is to see the beauty of nature from a prime vantage point. The climb itself will take you through scenic routes and you’ll find that the journey to the top is just as beautiful as what awaits you at the peak. Here are some picturesque trails you should try on your next outdoor adventure:
Dragon’s Back, Hong Kong
The Dragon’s Back trail will take you from island to island in Hong Kong. The 50-kilometer hike begins at the country’s most famous tourist spot, The Peak, which overlooks the picturesque city landscape. From city sights to lush, green forests – this hike will show you both sides of Hong Kong. Hiking through Dragon’s Back may not be the easiest but well worth the effort.
Best known as the range that contains the highest peak in the world, the Himalayas offers a variety of epic trails and breathtaking views of nature. You can try the hike to the Everest Base Camp to experience hiking the tallest mountain without actually climbing the whole thing.
