5 Hiking trails to experience in your lifetime

Spending time outside can bring health benefits not just to the body, but even to the mind and soul. One of the best ways to get in touch with nature is through hiking. If you’re looking for your next big adventure, check out some of the trails that you would not want to miss below.


1. Everest Base Camp Trek in Nepal – the highest point on planet Earth is practically on every hiker’s bucket list. There’s no denying the breathtaking scenery that you will encounter, and the fact that you will be on the highest place on earth will make it a glorious experience. But aside from that, you also get to experience the culture of the locals by visiting places such as the village of Namche Bazaar or the Buddhist monastery at Pangboche.


2. Tour Du  Mont Blanc – if you’re looking for an adventure that will be you to three countries, then circle the Mont Blanc. It can take as fast as 3 days, but if you want the full experience, it will take 7 to 10 days. This adventure of a lifetime will bring you to France, Italy, and Switzerland. Prepare yourself to see the dramatic glaciers of the Swiss Alps and of course the Mont Blanc. If you’re not in a hurry, take the time to enjoy the villages you will be passing through. Get to know the locals and don’t forget to enjoy the delicacies each place has to offer.


3. Te Araroa Trail in New Zealand – the country has some of the most diverse landscapes on earth. When you go on the TE Araroa Trail, you will not only get a glimpse of an active volcano but even a forest that looks like it belongs in another world. Get to know the culture of the Maori as you go through the river valleys. Book your tour around October through April which is the peak season for traveling there.


4. Overland Track in Tasmania – if you’re looking for a place that will offer not only the beautiful landscape but wildlife as well, the Overland Track is Australia is perfect. This place offers everything you could ask for in a hike. You’ll not only experience solitude but a variety of landscapes, from a rainforest, alpine lakes and mountains. You’ll also get the chance to see animals like the Tasmanian devil, the platypus, and the wombat. Allot around six days for this kind of adventure that can take you around Australia’s deepest lake, Lake St. Clair.


5. Inca Trail in Peru  - if you want a trail that will take you to one of the most beautiful sceneries in the world, choose to go on the Inca Trail. The hike will go through 26 miles of mountain scenery, ruins, a jungle and of course at the very end, you will get to behold one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, the Machu Picchu. The best time to go travel to the Inca trail and other Machu Picchu treks would be from May to September.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
