The Great Himalaya Trail stretches across the length of Nepal’s Himalaya mountain range. It goes through remote villages and across dangerous mountain passes. There are no exact statistics, but it’s estimated that less than 50 people have ever completed the hike. In 2017, myself and my hiking partner went to Nepal to do a self-supported […]

Trekking Morocco’s Jebel Sahro Circuit After climbing Mount Toubkal, Morocco’s highest peak, I wanted to get off the beaten track a bit and do some self-supported trekking in Morocco.

The Mount Toubkal Trek This past February, I did the Mount Toubkal trek in Morocco. (Clearly I didn’t get enough of hiking on the Camino de Santiago.) This was my first experience in the Atlas Mountains, and I was happily surprised to find snow in Morocco, a place I had previously thought of as hot […]

The Camino Invierno. The winter is the least popular season to walk the Camino. In the wintertime on the Camino there are no crowds, plenty of hot showers for everyone in the albergues, and lots of free time in the evenings because the sun sets early. For clarification, I hiked the Camino Frances route, but […]

I’ve been in Spain for over two weeks, and have been doing a winter hike of the Camino de Santiago for ten days so far. I wanted to walk in the winter to avoid the massive crowds that come to the Camino in the summer (because I’m an introvert). Getting to St.-Jean-Pied-de-Port, France in the […]
