Gadling just posted a list of the "World's Best Hikes", including Machu Picchu and California's John Muir Trail. Feel like Asia should have got some World's Best love? Check out our 2009 Travel Awards for the best trips on every continent but Antarctica and Europe. (In Europe, go with Gadling's recommended Cinque Terre hike in Italy - you won't regret it.)
Included in our list: trips to the Himalayas, Mongolia, Zambia and New Zealand.
