GET OUT THERE

The beauty of trekking is that you can often do it on a whim, without a guide or even much of a plan, when trails are well-marked. But some treks are bigger, tougher, and gnarlier than the rest. They demand attentive navigation and a close watch on the weather and trail conditions. Most people write these routes off as a result, leaving them wide open to those willing to put in the effort. If you’re somewhere in the middle – wanting a great adventure, along with peace of mind that the fundamentals are covered – a guided trek may be for you. Using a guide can help you reach places you would never find on your own, and in some regions, it’s the only way to access restricted or protected areas.
