What are the best treks to do outside India


Recommended Posts

Trekking since he age  of 22 and this November I’m turning 60 . 
I wish to be on a trek on my birthday November 29th  😊

I was thinking of a trek outside India but as its 29 November I want to trek it seems that visa etc can’t be arranged in such a short period. 
I want to be in the mountains on some exciting  trek 
So friends suggest something some exclusive plan 😇

Bhalchandra Sir, 

You can try Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest peak form Tanzania.  You can apply visa online which will take around 15-20 days (On arrival visa also available). You also need to get yellow-fever vaccine before 10 days of your travel. 

Mt. Kilimanjaro has around 19000 feet altitude so you are fine with this, you can do it in November.  Other options are few treks in Alps or New Zealand. But November might not be good time.

All the best..

The queen of all hikes in Europe is the Tour Du Mont Blanc (TMB), circumnavigating the Mont Blanc massif, passing through France, Italy and Switzerland. You shall see some of the most beautiful vistas and lakes. Staying in the mountain chalets as well as camping, is an absolute delight. 

In the United States, the John Muir Trail (JMT) in Sierra Nevada mountains is a very picturesque trail from the Yosemite valley to Mt Whitney. (This is an ecologically fragile area, so one has to first get permits)

Since you are planning for a trek in November and in Europe(as per tags), there are less options for you to trek there in that season. Temperature drops a lot during this time across Europe and it is a rainy season. Though it is possible to do short coastal hikes around Italy, Greece and some other Balkan countries. For trekking in the mountains, this is not the time. Be prepared for bad weather. In places around the mountains regions like the Alps the Refugios, Hostels or the Trekkers' Huts would be closed.

If you are fine with choosing treks in any other region I can help you.
