Why we do, What we do

WHY WE LOVE HIKING? It is kind of already reflected in our name, Hikers For Life. We have been hiking for more than 10 years and have the intention to continue our hiking passion for the rest of our lives. So, why do we love hiking so much? Here are some of our reasons: We […]

The Most Important Hiking Consideration, EVER

The level of satisfaction from completing a hike varies from one person to another. Usually satisfaction level will depend on if weather is nice during your hike, or the scenery that you see at the summit, or the group of friends you’re with or even the speed that you have hiked. For me, none of […]

Three Thing I Learnt About Myself While Hiking

To those who have never hike before, one may think that hiking is about going to a particular destination, for example: climbing up a particular mountain.
