Trekking is not taking a mere vacation. Trekking is not walking past trails and terrains only. It is an experience which cannot be put into words. In fact, trekking is making an entry on foot into a place’s history and culture. Trekking can be a rigorous activity where the body and the mind are challenged simultaneously. But what you get in return is inexplicable happiness and an experience that lasts with you for a lifetime. It also gives an opportunity to delve into the natural richness that our planet offers.
Mentioned below are some amazing trekking destinations in the world, which will leave you mesmerized and awe-struck:

Europe’s Mont Blanc is one of the longest trekking and hiking trails covering almost 125 kilometers. The most interesting part of this hiking experience is that you will pass through three most important European countries – Italy, France and Switzerland. The trekking circuit helps in enjoying amazing views of the Mont Blanc along with deep gorges, stiff cliffs and astounding views of glaciers. Traveling through the Alpine meadows and across high passes is an experience you cannot simply think of. There are refuges on the way, where you can take rest. Infact the refuges offer excellent mountain cuisine to trekkers and hikers, which seem like the best food one has eaten ever. Discover the alpine zone of Europe with this trip.
To enjoy such exotic hiking and trekking activities in other continents and countries, it becomes imperative to travel to such places. And an international traveler needs a passport for the same. Depending on the place to which you are traveling, you might need visa permits as well.
