Here are the must-visit places in the world if you love adventures

Antarctica

You must go on adventures to find out where you truly belong.” So, here are some absolutely must-visit places in the world, if you’re an adventure travel lover.

Nepal

Nepal is a mountain lover’s dream come true. It has myriad options for trekking and hiking for all levels of difficulty, as well as opportunities for ziplining in Pokhara (the world’s longest zip line), and whitewater rafting in Trishuli river and Kali Gandaki river gorge. What more, this is all easy on the wallet, thus making it an economical option. Nepal is also home to Mount Everest, planet earth’s highest mountain, which sees hordes of trekking and mountaineering enthusiasts during the climbing seasons. With eight of the world’s 14 highest peaks in Nepal, this is a must-visit place.

Chamonix, France

Chamonix is known as the adventure capital of the world, and for good reason; the entire valley is one massive playground with limitless options to get a good thrill. Whether you like water-based sports, gravity sports or air-borne adventures, there’s something to suit people of every ability and level of experience.

Antarctica

Antarctica, the seventh continent, is a place where adventure permeates even the air. One of the last true wildernesses left on the planet, it is exactly the same way as it was when the great explorers first discovered it. From the comforts of your own expedition vessel, you can explore some larger-than-life, almost ethereal, polar landscapes; indulge in some adventure activities like camping on the icy ground, kayaking, and polar plunge (taking a dip in the frigid waters)! Who knows, you might have an encounter with a penguin or a seal — something you will cherish forever.

Gobi Desert, Mongolia

Mongolia has retained its nomadic lifestyle since the days of the great Emperor Genghis Khan. As you drive across the vast Mongolian steppe, absorb the big-sky panoramas of the Gobi Desert alongside nomadic herdspeople and sleep in a traditional ger (yurt) by the bottomless Lake Khovsgol. Visit in July to witness the spectacle of Naadam Festival, a traditional Mongolian cultural extravaganza, and in September-October for the intriguing Golden Eagle Festival, a celebration of the ancient Kazakh nomadic tradition of hunting with domesticated golden eagles. The ruins of the ancient capital city of Kharkhorin and Buddhist monasteries still stand to this day and offer a glimpse into an ancient era.

Salalah & Snake Canyon, Oman

The port city of Salalah in Oman offers opportunities for diving, and also for viewing stunning marine life. Tucked in a small bay, its covered rock outcrops are populated with morays, sharks, octopus, snapper, turtles and occasionally, dolphins. Sites will look very different when kelp is growing versus when it’s completely gone.

Canyoning in Snake Canyon, located in the Wadi Bani Auf region in the western part of the Al Hajar mountains in Oman, is an experience in itself. The canyon is covered on both sides with very high cliffs — you can imagine how vast this place is. One can trek through this canyon and take a dip in the water-pool at the end of the trail. This is Oman at its rugged and remote best!
