Copper Canyon, Mexico
Anyone who trail runs has heard of the barefooted king of the running world, the Tarahumara native tribe. The Copper Canyon and Tararecua Canyon of Mexico is where they live hidden deep 4,675 down in these desert canyons. The hiking in the Chihuahua Desert is hard in the extreme heat but the views of this canyon carved by six snaking rivers is phenomenal in this forty mile hike crawling across 20,000 miles of lonely desert wilderness.
Mountains of the Moon, Uganda
The highest peak in Africa, would be the goal here on this trek through Uganda. Watch out for wild elephants trail side as you make your way through wilderness beneath mountain peaks on this 38 mile trek. I can’t think of anywhere else on earth when you can see elephants and glaciers all on the same hike.
