My hiking trip from Jiri to Mount Everest Base Camp was amazing, in general. Still, there were also many unpleasant moments, many things which weren’t luxurious, and many moments I wanted to give up. It’s an adventure, not a 5-star all-inclusive vacation. I knew that, and it’s totally fine with me. However, it was even harder in the end, then I could imagine. This is not a blog entry to keep you away from the whole thing; you should just know what you are getting into and be prepared. In the end, it was terrific, as you can read in my other entries.
So, in the last post, I gave you a little overview over my trek from Jiri to Everest Base Camp, in this entry I’ll describe the trail in more details. How difficult was it? Was it hard to find, and how long did I hike a day?

Basically, Thailand can be divided into three parts when it comes to activities and things to do for tourists. On the one hand, there is Bangkok which is a mega city and offers anything a big city could offer. The south is to relax with a lot of beautiful islands and beaches. And then there is the north, my favorite part, full of action and nature, cheaper and activities as far as you can see.
While I was in Chiang Mai in the north of Thailand, I did a two-day trekking tour to the Karen villages. Karen people are people who live in Thailand but don’t see themselves as Thai people. They have their language and live deep in the jungle. They still have the very remote and old houses, and most of them have no electricity. They cook mostly on fire and have their meat production – chicken or pork running in their front yard. Very interesting to see how these people live and nature was beautiful.
I hiked for two days in the setting of the film Avatar, the National Park in Zhangjiajie, and it was another amazing hike. The Blog entry can be found here. In addition to that, I shoot a short video about my days in Zhangjiajie.
When you think about hiking you maybe think about the mountains in Switzerland, Austria or Canada, but not about China right? Well, think again. I spend..
Not far from the City Xi’an zhe Huashan Mountains invite you for an incredible hike. This hike made it’s name as one of the most dangerous ones on. The planet and they were not lying.

In my new video I’ll show you what I saw and why you should visit that place too.
