If you're itching to explore incredible, beautiful landscapes, then the Annapurna circuit in Nepal could be just the place for you.
The hike of a lifetime, here you can take part in long treks that take you past waterfalls and rickety old bridges, rocky terrain and amazing mountains.
Writing for Gonomad.com, Robert Painter describes his trek through the circuit and marvels at the sights he saw.
He does warn, however, that adjusting to the altitude can be difficult and Nepal experiences lots of rain, so waterproof boots are an absolute essential.
Meanwhile, he recommends you hire porters to carry any heavy packs for you during your trip - and highlights that doing so can help to boost the local economy, as well as help to make your adventure a little less strenuous.
According to the Nepal Tourist Board, trekking is the most popular activity for the country's visitors - and several sights you can see along the way boast Unesco World Heritage status.
