While every destination in the world can be a great backpacking destination, there are some destinations which truly stand out. If you are looking for an amazing backpacking experience, here are 10 backpacking destinations to help you get started:
1. Brazil– Cheap, beautiful and with amazing beaches- that summarizes Brazil for you. If you are looking for a beach holiday, consider a backpacking trip to Brazil. While the place comes alive during the carnival season, it is best explored during the lean season. When the carnival is not on, there are much less people on the street, the hotels are much less expensive, and you have much more time to seep in the energy of the place. However, while travelling in Brazil, make sure you take special care of your belongings. The destination is notorious for petty crimes like pick pocketing.
2.Ladakh, India– If you are more of a mountain person and want to experience some really thrilling treks, head to Ladakh in India. Trekking in Ladakh is a memorable experience, with high mountain peaks to climb, trekking on frozen rivers and much more. But trekking isn’t the only highlight of a Ladakh trip. While here, consider taking a mountain biking tour on Khardung La Pass, or rover rafting in River Zanskar too.
