What would the best place to trek for beginners? We are group of friends trying to relax in the nature

Hey everyone,
I hope you're all doing well. I'm reaching out to this community because I'm about to embark on my first-ever trekking adventure, and I could really use some advice from the seasoned trekkers here. I've been a hardworking individual who hasn't had much time for traveling in the past, but thanks to our company's policy, I now have the opportunity to take all my annual leaves. So, I've decided to go on a trek with a few friends. However, I'm quite clueless about where to start.

Exciting to hear you're gearing up for your first trekking adventure! Here are some tips for you. For beginners, I'd recommend starting with something like the Annapurna Base Camp trek in Nepal or the Inca Trail in Peru. Both offer stunning views and moderate difficulty suitable for beginners.Make sure you have sturdy hiking boots, a comfortable backpack, layers of clothing (including waterproofs), a good sleeping bag, and trekking poles. Don't forget essentials like a first aid kit, sunscreen, and plenty of water.Always stick to marked trails and follow any guidelines provided by park rangers or guides. Keep an eye on weather forecasts and adjust your plans accordingly. Stay hydrated and take breaks when needed. And most importantly, never hike alone

Thank you so much for your detailed response! Your suggestions are incredibly helpful.The Annapurna Base Camp trek sounds like a perfect starting point for us, and I'll make sure to check out the Inca Trail as well.I'll definitely be investing in all the essential gear you mentioned, especially those sturdy hiking boots. And your advice on training and preparation makes a lot of sense—I'll start incorporating more cardio into my routine and do some practice hikes with my gear.
