What to Expect from an Asia Walking Tour?

How far can you go? From tours of Asia’s cities and villages to hikes through jungles and mountains, let your feet do the talking. Walk long enough on unknown paths and you’ll see what few people see: local community life far from the tourist route, rarely glimpsed views from striking hilltops, and crystal pools deep in the tangles of the rainforest.


Our local specialists know the best paths because they’ve walked them. We’ll lead you past historical landmarks, down winding streets, through jungle trails, and up the peaks of mountaintops.


Walk and explore as much as you want—slow and steady, or even fast and furious. Take a leisurely stroll along the rivers, or hit the grueling trails to the summit.


Absorb the details you’d otherwise miss: the teasing aromas of spice stalls, the chatter of local children playing, the flashes of spirit that define all that is Asia.


Stop and smell the rhododendrons. Trek through the jungle, and soak your feet in the cool creeks. Battle the monsoon rain with your trusty umbrella. Walking means it’s just you and the world.


Travel is best done at your pace. Without the stress of keeping up with timetable itineraries, a bespoke walking holiday focuses on the fundamental, underlying reason of why we travel: the freedom to wander.


Visit remote, hidden communities in the jungle, or spend the night with the hill tribes in the mountains. Hang out with the locals. They’ll show you the way.
