Classic Hiking & Walking Itineraries

Hiking and walking tours are a great way to experience a country on a more personal and insightful level. By exploring the destination mostly on foot, you can get a more in depth understanding of its culture, nature, and history. In order to get a well-rounded hiking and walking itinerary, it is best to break it down into certain key aspects. 

See All Hiking and Walking Tours

Daily Hiking and Walking Itinerary

This is a generalized itinerary based off what most tours offer. The daily itinerary includes how each tour spends its time. The next aspect is where the most popular hiking and walking tours are offered. It also notes how each location differentiates its itineraries from others. And the last aspect includes the duration spent on each tour. 


Mornings comprise of getting ready, eating breakfast, and getting familiarized with the daily activity ahead. Your tour guide will most likely go over attire, weather, mileage, equipment and estimated completion time. This is also when you can ask additional questions about the activity before heading out.


Most hikes and walks begin between the late morning or early afternoon. Depending on the travel destination, the hike or walk either highlights the location’s natural scenery or cultural significance. It should be noted, however, that most tours try their best to include both.


The evenings are usually set aside for leisure time. Some tours provide dinner. If local cafes or restaurants are accessible, then you can also eat there. If you are camping, however, then dinner will most likely be made at the camp. The rest of the time can be spent exploring, reflecting, and resting.

One of the best hiking experience in the Himalayas December 2017


Everest Base Camp Trek

We did customized 13 days Everest base camp trek with Glorious Himalaya Trekking team and it was really an awesome trip in our life. We were 4 friends from Australia and booked our Nepal trip through online with Glorious Himalaya, we found them very professional and reliable as well.

During our 13 days trip, the weather was excellent with crystal clear mountains views from Kalapather view point. We had hot meals with warm accommodation during our trek. Our guide Ram was very helpful, reliable and knowledgeable. And the porter were enough strong to carry the loads on our entire trip.

Eventually, we don't hesitate to recommend Glorious Himalaya Trekking team for your remarkable holidays in Nepal. They are very professional and quick on response.

Cheers and see you guys next year again in October.

Fabulous countryside & well organised trip October 2017


Walking In Costa Rica

We had a great trip with 2by2 Holidays to Cost Rica and still enjoy looking at all the photos. It's such a beautiful country and the walks were exactly the right level of challenge for us. The guides were very knowledgeable and added a whole extra dimension of enjoyment for us. Everyone we met was so relaxed and friendly and the accommodation was pretty good. We especially enjoyed the hot springs at Arenal after a long day of exploring. You wouldn't go to Costa Rica for the food as its a bit bland but there was always a lot of it so we never went hungry! We are planning our next one trip with 2by2... possibly Peru. Highly recommend them as their service and knowledge is excellent. Read more

Annapurna Base Camp Trekking- 13 Days

We are a group of students from Singapore who have decided to embark on a trekking trip to Everest Base Camp. Even though we did not make the trip to Everest due to the the plane to Lukla airport being unable to take off (due to the bad weather during monsoon), which rendered us stranded at the airport, all was not lost. Suresh, who was in-charge of Sunrise Adventure Trek, made back-up plans and we were off to Annapurna Base Camp for our trek the very next day.

The porters and guides (Ramesh and Sobit) were all very friendly, taking care of our needs every step of the way. The warm demeanour has also won us over, with spontaneous dances being part of the nightly activities.

Will definitely be back to Nepal to explore the other treks, and also for this warm group of people whom I now call friends.
