The best hiking and cycling adventure tours in Asia by Exodus Travels


Well known for their excellent active adventure holidays, Exodus Travels has an amazing Asia portfolio. Here ate the best hiking and cycling adventure tours in Asia by Exodus Travels.



Jordan

Trails of Jordan - Wadi Rum and Petra

Described by T.E. Lawrence as "vast, echoing and God-like...", it is at Wadi Rum that red sandstone rocks reach up from the desert floor to the high desert sky. The area is at its most dramatic early and late in the day, when the soft light and blue sky create a coppery effect on the sand. Here you hike through canyons and wadis, camping like the local Bedouin among the rock formations. Imagining ancient caravans of spice traders travelling far and wide to sell their wares, you walk into Petra, the Rose Red City hewn from the rock. Here you discover tombs, temples and treasuries, and as you climb up to find magnificent views and vistas, you begin to understand why Lawrence loved this land.



Jordan

Cycling in Jordan

Ride through the mountains and deserts of the land Lawrence of Arabia loved, on this 9-day adventure cycling holiday in Jordan. Starting the in the capital Amman we travel to the ancient ruins at Jerash, from where we ride through olive groves and villages to Madaba. After admiring the Byzantine mosaics we ride up Mt Nebo before enjoying a fantastic freewheeling ride down to the Dead Sea. A transfer vehicle takes us to Petra which we will explore on foot before cycling to Little Petra and on through traditional Bedouin territory to Aqaba on the Red Sea. A highlight for many will be the ride into Wadi Rum where the red-sand rocks make for some of the most spectacular desert scenery anywhere on earth. Enjoy a night in a camp (and perhaps sleep out under the stars) and a jeep safari before returning to Amman.



Nepal

Trekking Everest Basecamp

Nepal's Everest Base Camp has captivated the minds of trekkers around the world ever since the 1920's and the multi-day hike to basecamp offers some of the most breathtaking scenery you will see anywhere in the Himalaya. In addition, the fascinating culture and a personal sense of achievement will make this a once-in-a-lifetime trek.
