The Most Popular Himalayan Treks for Women

Kedarkantha

By Shanu Pande

Women are the best creations of God. They are gentle yet strong, flexible yet steely, emotional yet calm. Today women are independent, free-spirited, and love to enjoy life from close quarters. There is hardly any domain untouched by women and trekking is one of them.

Many solo females are trekking to the remotest terrains of India. All this seems incredible in an outdoor activity that is challenging and certainly not for the chicken-hearted.

Nutrition Tips for Solo Hikers

By Caitlin Evans

Hiking alone can be an exhilarating, terrifying, life-altering, and excruciating experience.

Having just seen Wild for the first time a couple of months ago (and having berated myself for not watching it earlier), I was amazed at how the challenges and setbacks faced by a first-time solo female hiker have been accurately fleshed out in a couple of hours.

6 Trekking Pole Uses – of the non-traditional kind.

By Kristi Westberg

I’ll be very honest. It took me quite a while to admit I needed a set of trekking poles.

I used to feel like trekking poles were a sign of weakness, an extra couple of things to carry, and unnecessary to my kind of hiking. BUT the truth is whenever I came to a river crossing or was faced with a steep set of rocks I would often borrow someone else’s poles for extra support and balance.

Several years of this led me read more

Curiosity in Leave-No-Trace Ethics 1

By Carley Fairbrother

Is There Room for Curiosity in Leave-No-Trace Ethics?

I want to start off with a story. Bear with me.

My first introduction to habitat destruction was when I was eight years old. The ditch at the end of our driveway was my favourite place to play in the early summer. It contained the densest population of tadpoles I have ever seen to date. Not just any tadpole either – Pacific tree frog tadpoles – my absolute favourite. I spent hours mucking around the ditch, and on rainy days, I’d stay inside and read about frogs. read more

Nature Calling on Line One

Nature Calling on Line One 1

By Kristi Westberg

I have a confession to make.

I’ve never peed outside. (well, at least not until a few weeks ago)

[pausing for shaking heads and most likely eye-rolls]

I didn’t call myself the “Indoorsy Camper” because I like roughin’ it. I dubbed myself the “Indoorsy Camper” because I like to cook lamb tagine (recipe from Melissa Clark….you need to make it!) in my Instant Pot and read more

Discover the northeast of Italy 1

By Alessia Morello

Hi girls,

Today I decide to write a different post.

It’s not just a trekking post, it is more a celebration of my homeland.

Discover the northeast of Italy – The place where I’m from

You have to know that my region is not considered much at all in Italy. Sometimes this is sad and sometimes I’m happy for that because we don’t have many tourists that hike and explore our incredible mountains.

How to choose and use a camp stove

By Krista Karlson

Sharpen your dinner duty skills with this easy guide.

When I first started camping and backpacking, I’d strategically avoid dinner duty. I’d offer to set up the tent or get water, but I never helped cook because I didn’t know how to use a stove. I felt embarrassed, like I wasn’t “outdoorsy” enough. I didn’t want to ask how to use a stove because it would reveal what I thought was a gaping incompetency, and I didn’t want to be mansplained about how to use one. So I’d peek over my friends’ shoulders, trying to figure read more

The United States has been the forerunners of this wonderful idea and even Italy in recent years has worked hard to make tourists and locals live a unique experience by spending a holiday staying meters high in the middle of our amazing woods.
