If you’ve ever dreamed about doing this - DO IT ! Challenging but absolutely indescribable, you have to experience it . Way too huge to be captured in vids or pics . Research the outfitters and buy as much “ luxury “ as you can afford .✌️

Had such an amazing time on this track. Heavy traffic though.

Such an incredible hike! Did this unguided and solo for New Years Eve 2018! Highly recommend!

Bucket list item complete!

Amazing

Amazing.

Soak in the hot tub at Cuernos if possible!!

no. words. mind. blown. did it with wildland trekking. recommend hiking from east to west, as the scenery and refugios get progressively better— from base of towers to french valley to grey glacier (with cuernos refugio being my least favorite). layers are your best friend as you’re constantly layering/de-layering to adjust to the weather conditions. i want to go back already.

Amazing experience. Went early October to avoid the crowds. We had 3 days of beautiful weather and one day of cold and snowy. This trail takes you through varying terrains and weather conditions which makes each day exciting. We stayed at the Refugios during our trek and the chance to take a shower and grab a cold beer each night made the experience even more enjoyable.

Beautiful views with diverse terrain. Highly recommend early October when the park is less crowded.

Hardest ever attempted but most rewarding

Just finished this trek (oct 26th) It’s absolutely amazing! Tough but very doable. I’d say you’d want to be at least in good shape. I saw people of all ages but I couldn’t imagine doing this when I’m in my 65+ years. It would be more brutal than fun. Just have to take it slow and if you’re like me and end up with altitude sickness (headache, throwing up...) just take some medicine and a day to rest. (I got sick in Dingboche) But by the next day I felt much better and was able to push through, it was totally worth it! You’ll meet some amazing people not only locals but people from all around the world who you’ll bump into at each town doing the same trek. You’ll make friends with people from all over and hear some amazing stories along the way. If you’d like to see some of the picture that I took you can see them on my Instagram @blakewsmith_

Excellent trip, my son and I did this solo (no guid or porter) we had a map and carried our own equipment which made the trek way more challenging. Majority or trekkers use a porter or guid to carry up to 15 kilos for them, I would advise this for inexperienced trekkers. We used the map several times however the trail is well defined in most areas, again I would advise using a guid unless you are competent with a map.
It’s an amazing trek with beautiful views all the way to EBC, while there summit Kala Pathar as it is a must, the views are outstanding.
Plan for about 3,000 rupees a day spending, the food and lodges are more expensive the higher you get. The most important advise is to have fun and take your time, altitude sickness is very serious and can get you at any time. When arriving at your destination each day, climb higher to help acclimatize before returning to your accommodation, this will help with sleep (which gets more difficult the higher you get).

Tried to hike it but got stopped by some corrupt conservation officers looking for a bribe before they’d let us continue

so beautiful a must do

Fallow trails n get to encourage

The Kungsleden trail is the most beautiful and exciting hike I've ever done. The nature is very scandinavian and breathtaking. Wide horizons, turquoise lakes, a lot of reindeer, and cozy refuges with kind staff made this trip special. I did the part from Abisko to Nikkaluoakta in 2016. It was about 100km in 6 days. The weather was mild and beautiful. I recommend taking 7-8 days for relaxed hiking. Theres no need for heavy backpacks as food can be bought and prepared cheaply in the refuges, and water can be drunk from most lakes and streams.

If I had the time and money I would do this hike tomorrow!

Magestic short Andean hike with views of the tallest mountain in the Americas. The perfect day trip and hike in between visiting Mendoza wineries.

Amazing place to visit! You will never forget

One of the best multiday hikes we did (group of three). The vistas are very rewarding and the colours are breathtaking. We were quite unlucky with the weather: heavy rain and fog almost every day. The second day, my husband lost his boots when we crossed one of the rivers that was running at high levels and very furious. The water level was quite high (well above my knees) so we had to cross it barefoot. His boots weren't properly secured on the heavy backpack and .... they were gone! We had duct tape so we transformed a pair of sleepers into hiking boots and made it to the refugio. Appart from this incident, we had a wonderful time in the national park. Many flowers, rainbows, chauras (we nibbled on them all the time), birds, glaciers and nice hikers. We were lucky that we could buy a pair of old hiking boots so we could continue our trail.

I only did about ten miles. Very nice path. Many backpackers from all over Europe.

Not that difficult. The challenge is the rockfall area to the pass from Sheep Camp to Happy Camp but is short lived. The challenge for me was the weather. Torrential rain and wind hitting me sideways. Streams on the CANADIAN side were challenging as water level did get high but doable. High winds blew me into a few creeks.
Will come back to do the Canadian side as the scenery is simply breathtaking. Beauty beyond belief. Clean toilets and Lindeman Camp had their two cabins heated with the wood stoves going. Three days of rain and soaked to the bone. Lindeman gave us a chance to dry out things.
Love love love the Canadian side and travel thru that terrain was simply awe inspiring.

Well maintained trail. Thumbs up to both the USA and Canada. Beautiful and scenic! I recommend this trail to anyone. The push over the pass is strenuous but doable for most hikers.

Wonderful hike! The amazing views, fascinating history and super variable terrain was the highlight of our 3 week Alaska and Yukon vacation! The rating of "difficult" is certainly accurate though and I would suggest some serious training for anyone planning to hike this trail!

Incredible!!! Probably the best trail i have ever done :)

I would like to go back one day and do the 0 trail (10 days) in this mesmerising place!

If you are planning on camping with your tent (as i think is the best way to so this trail), make sure that your tent is fully waterproof. Good equipment is needed.

Great hike! History everywhere. Great views, if the weather cooperates. We had steady rain on our trip, except when we approached Chilkoot pass. Then the sideways rain hit us so hard it bruised our faces! But I didn't mind. It made me appreciate the original gold-seekers' experiences in 1897.
I'm a heavy hiker and I did the trail in day hikers. I damaged my feet on the rocky moraine leading to the pass. Please consider hiking boots.
Day 1, to Sheep Camp.
Day 2, over the pass to Happy Camp.
Day 3, finish.
We flew to Whitehorse, took the bus to Carcross and the White Pass & Yukon Route train to Skagway. If that works with where you're coming from, I recommend the train. It's a great part of the overall trip. And check out Dawson City when you're done, too.

Finished the infamous Chilkoot with my husband of 38 years and 11 adults and 3 teens after 4 nights in the trail: Canyon City, Sheep Camp, Happy Camp, Lindamen Lake & sad to finish...

Amazing hike! We did it in 2 1/2 days total and 18 hrs of hike. Great scenery, few people along the way. Lots of history, and make you appreciate the tenacity and the willingness of the pioneers that hike across with big dreams of making fortune in a new place. Thinking about doing it again...

It has unique views. The Andes are extremely picturesque. However, it is a hard hike . Must carry hiking poles and proper shoes. I did get a swollen knee on my way down (I was a bit careless and didnt use poles - sigh). My favourite was the one to Lago Grey. The view of glacier from all the angles is simply spectacular.I would not do this again though. Andes were cool but Rockies are my favourite!
