Adventure traveling is the next big thing, especially for people fed up with conventional destinations. It is an opportunity to go beyond the traditional and explore the world in its wildest and most unusual way. However, before getting started make sure you’re up for the challenge. Not everyone can escalade the Himalayas or dive into the desert. Here are some amazing top destinations you might want to write down on your New Year’s resolution list.
Hiking in Patagonia is something you don’t get to do very often. For the most adventurous, it is a chance in a lifetime to explore one of the world’s most incredible travel locations in the world. Accommodation is available at the EcoCamp in Patagonia, which is comfortable, sustainable, and conveniently-priced. The surrounding glaciated wildlife and peaks are breathtaking, although only the most experienced will enjoy the experience. To hike the Patagonian hills and valleys, make sure you’re properly trained – both training and endurance are needed to make the most of your trek. Patagonia is grandiose. It is a wild wonderland where nature grows abundantly and the pristine rivers complement the surreal scenery. If you’re looking for an adventurous destination like no other, this is it.
Known for its nomadic culture and rugged, vast expanses, Mongolia is outstanding. Bordered by Russia and China, this beautiful destination has everything required to fuel your need for adventure traveling. The vague tracks spread throughout the territory are marked by Buddhist monasteries, and everywhere you look you’ll see wildlife, local people living a modest lifestyle, and spectacular sceneries. Ulaanbaatar is Mongolia’s capital, and as soon as you arrive it will exceed all your expectations.

Packed with sinful nightlife, pulsating commerce, and contrasting modern buildings, Ulaanbaatar might just be the best place to take a break and relish the glitzy lifestyle for a few days.
