Hiking through snowy-capped mountains are the best, but have you tried hiking through rainforests and jungles? For avid hikers, Southeast Asia is full of trails beyond your wildest dreams.

So what are you waiting for? Pack your hiking gear and get ready for scenic trails and doses of Southeast Asian culture in between. It's an adventure of a lifetime! Here are the best hiking trails in Southeast Asia. 

Tiger's Nest Monastery Trail. More than a rite of passage than an endurance hike, towards the top you'll see a Buddhist temple the locals believe to be the birthplace of Buddhism in Bhutan. You only have to spend an hour and a half climbing the whole trail, but the last few meters are very steep and challenging.

Fansipan Mountain Trail. If you only want the best trails there are, then consider making a hiking trip in the "roof of Indochina."  At 3143 meters, it's the highest mountain in the Indochina region, making it a popular hiking spot for trekking enthusiasts. Make sure to be physically and mentally fit before you make the trip-you need three days before you can get to the summit.

100 Waterfalls Mountain Trek. It's not actually a promise that you'll get to see a hundred waterfalls in this trail, but this adventure in Northern Laos is exciting enough to be featured on international travel magazines. Though the entire trek is not that physically demanding, the humidity of the whole area is what makes it challenging, as you need a whole day to complete the trail.

Mount Pulag Mountain Trail. The Philippines is not just about beautiful beaches! Take the time to complete the Mount Pulag hike, and you'll witness one of the most beautiful sunrises in your life complete with clouds lapping at your feet. Along the way, you'll see some of the most endangered species of flora and fauna. This could be tiring, but the scenery at the top is well worth the climb.

Mount Brinchang Summit Trail. The Cameron Highlands are marvelous for hikes, but you shouldn't underestimate its trails. Compared to typical Southeast Asian weather, the climate is cooler here, so pack appropriate clothes. There's also an observation deck at the top.
