3 exhilarating hiking destinations in Asia for your travel bucket list

Hiking in Asia

We orienteers love outdoors—what’s better than exploring the world with orienteering and hiking? Get these places in your bucket list and explore them when these places open up to tourists again:

1. Hong Kong

Sharp Peak is the tallest mountain in this photo of eastern Sai Kung.

Turns out, the financial centre of East Asia has a lot of nature to offer. From the easiest hikes around Victoria Peak, to the exhilarating views of Dragon’s Back, to the demanding climb to Sharp Peak (seen from afar in photo), Hong Kong always has something to offer in terms of natural beauty.

Join us this December for a three-week long training camp with City Race and Metvigator in Hong Kong.

2. Malaysia

Malaysia is more than just beaches and rainforests.
Malaysia is more than just beaches and rainforests.

The Malay Archipelago (Malaysia/Indonesia) has some of the tallest mountains of the region. Mount Kinabalu in Sabah is the tallest of these at 4,095 metres, earning the island of Borneo third place among the tallest islands of the world.

While East Malaysia is known for its nature, West (Peninsular) Malaysia also has a lot to offer in terms of hiking. The Cameron Highlands is one of the most popular holiday destinations for Malaysians and people from nearby countries. Nearer to cities, hiking experiences are plenty around Penang and Kuala Lumpur.

Next Chinese New Year, join us for a new edition of Tropical Orienteering Week in Penang and explore this beautiful multicultural nation in Southeast Asia. Mark your calendar for 11-14 February 2021.

3. Thailand

Hiking in Thailand often means exploring the many Buddhist temples in the country.

The north of Thailand is host to many tall mountains, including the tallest mountain in Thailand, Doi Inthanon.

Hiking in Thailand is not just about nature, but a journey of culture and the soul, with the hill tribe cultures of northern Thailand and the many temples that adorn the landscape. Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai and many other cities in the north of Thailand offer hiking experiences for you to explore.

If you missed our Thailand International Orienteering Championship 2019 in Chiang Mai, join us in 2021 for a week-long training camp in Nan, Thailand.
