Vote for your favourite treks for a chance to win a dream trekking holiday to Nepal, courtesy of World Expeditions!
Everest Base Camp? Kilimanjaro? Appalachian Trail? Tour du Mont Blanc? What IS the best trek in the world? That’s the million-dollar question we are aiming to answer with the launch of our first ever Top 100 Treks poll, where YOU decide what are the very best trekking routes on the planet.
Not only will your votes count towards deciding the final list of 100 best treks, you will also be automatically entered into a draw to win a dream trekking trip to Nepal, courtesy of our Top 100 Treks partner, World Expeditions.
Nepal is, of course, the undisputed home of trekking and offers an unbeatable mix of adventure, culture and its world-famous hospitality – not to mention the greatest mountain range on earth! Our winner will be able to choose from four amazing treks hand-picked by the experts at World Expeditions – see below for more details – with the added benefit of visiting World Expeditions’ own eco campsites which among other benefits, help prevent deforestation and provide employment and support to local communities.
