If you love adventure travel and you enjoy trekking, you may want to explore the idea of adventure trekking. As the name suggests, it’s more than just a simple walking experience; on adventure treks, you can expect to navigate challenging terrain, climb mountains and perhaps ford a river. Many treks are through sparsely populated areas with little in the way of facilities, and camping and cooking your own food are usually the routine. Most trekking companies will require you to be physically fit enough to take part, and some people start getting in shape months before the actual trek. And of course, treks take in some of the most dramatic scenery anywhere, including mountains, rain forest, desert and river. Some of the most popular destinations for a trekking adventure include the Himalayas, the Grand Canyon, Mount Kilimanjaro and central and South America.
