How long does it take to do the mighty five?

From admiring the breathtaking vista of Delicate Arch, one of the world's most renowned geologic structures, in Arches National Park to ascending to the impossibly poised Angels Landing in Zion National Park, one of the world's most famous treks, you'll be eerily close to a flawless 10 days. But what about your body? Well, assuming you don't want to die during this hike or collapse at the end of each day's journey - which is likely since you're carrying a lot of weight - then you should be able to complete the entire trail in just over four months, two months if you skip lunch every day.

The average person's body was not designed for such strenuous activity for so many hours per day for so many years in a row. Over time, it becomes injured. It gets tired. It breaks down.

Your muscles will get sore. Your feet will get blistered. You'll probably get sick sometimes (because you are human). And if you aren't careful, you might even start to hurtle downward toward the ground at a speed of more than 40 miles per hour!

But that's why we have trainers who help us carry our extra load and guide us through difficult areas. And that's also why high-level athletes need coaches to help them plan their trips and give them advice on how to improve their performance: to avoid injury and maximize their potential.

How long does it take to do Angels Landing?

From the trailhead to the peak and back, the Angels Landing Trail is a total of 5 kilometers round-trip. The hike takes around 4 to 5 hours. During winter months, when there are no trails, it can be done by snowshoe or cross-country ski.

Angels Landing is one of the most difficult hikes in the world. The narrow trail has 29 stairs that lead up to the viewing platform at 9,828 feet above sea level. The last 300 feet of the climb are so steep that they're covered with handrails for safety. Visitors who plan to go to the top should allow themselves at least three days to complete the hike. One way up and down, that's a total of eight hours on the trail.

The first recorded attempt to reach the top of Angels Landing was in 1848 by a group of American explorers. They were looking for a route across the Rockies then part of America. The leader of the group, Thomas Jefferson Rusk, wrote about his experience on the mountain in his book "Travels Through Parts of America Not Yet Visited."

In 1957, an Austrian expedition made the first successful ascent of the landing during summertime. The team was led by Herman Bierenbaum and included Richard Westfall as second man.

How long does it take to go through the Badlands?

It's possible to see the highlights of Badlands National Park's North Unit in a day or less. The average guest stays for 3-5 hours. However, if you have more time, there are many other attractions within the park that will keep you occupied for several more days.

The best way to see the Badlands is on one of our hiking trails. There are eight different trails inside the North Unit of the park, with various lengths and levels of difficulty. Some trails are better suited for short walks while others are perfect for longer hikes. Bring a map and use it to plan your trip around the sights to see. You can find information about all the trails at

Other ways to enjoy the park include horseback riding, biking, jeep tours, and watching wildlife. There are also some interesting sites that are not to be missed such as the Indian Creek Petroglyph Panel and the Devil's Den. If you get hungry, there are some nice restaurants with views of the prairie outside of Ellsworth, including our favorite, Buffalo Bill's Resort and Casino.

Badlands National Park is located in South Dakota, about two hours from Minneapolis/St. Paul.

How long does an epic pass last?

The Epic includes 7 days in Canadian Rockies locations such as Fernie Alpine Resort, Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, Kimberley Alpine Resort, Nakiska Ski Area, Mont-Sainte Anne, and Stoneham. The pass offers great views of the mountains and is used by alpine climbers as a staging point before they head out into the national park for a few weeks at a time.

Epics are available daily, weekly, or monthly. The choice is up to you. Epics can only be purchased from Canadian Rockies tours that include transportation from the airport. Tours can be booked online at or by phone at 800-665-5768.

Transportation within the region is by limousine or helicopter. A full day's worth of activities can cost $500-$1,200 per person depending on the season and type of tour selected.

For example, an adventure tour includes hiking, biking, cross-country skiing, and other active pursuits; a culture tour features visits to museums and other historical sites; and a wildlife tour explores some of the most beautiful spots in the region where you have a good chance of seeing animals such as elk, moose, and even grizzly bears.

How long does it take to climb Diamond Head?

The typical tourist takes around 45 minutes to reach the summit of the route. If the path is packed when you come, the trek may take longer. Allow at least 1.5–2 hours to truly relax and enjoy the climb and landscape while you're there.

The road up is fairly steep but not too difficult. The first 2 miles go through urban Honolulu with its shopping centers and fast food restaurants. After that, the road becomes more rural with pineapple fields on one side and ocean views on the other.

When you get to the top, you can choose between hiking down the east or west sides of the mountain. Both options are strenuous, but they offer different views. The east side has more switchbacks and is better for those who aren't so sure-footed. The west side has less traffic and is easier for kids. Either way, you'll need to use caution not to fall down the mountainside.

Overall, climbing Diamond Head is a great exercise option that's also good for your lungs!

How long does it take to get to the Far Lands in Minecraft?

To reach the remote lands, it takes around 4 weeks and 6 days of constant trekking, although one can also teleport there. The beginning of the far lands is at (x: 12550821, y: 64, z: 12550821).

The far lands are located in the Nether world. They consist of a large desert with several oases where you can find resources such as gold, iron, diamond, lapis lazuli, and obsidian.

You need a special permission from the overlord to enter the far lands. If he doesn't like you, then you won't be allowed in.

You can travel between the overworld and the nether using a portal. You need redstone to create these portals, which means they can be used as shortcuts if you need to go fast between different locations.

Portals can be opened or closed automatically. For example, if there's no player present in a specific area, then the portal will be closed automatically.

You can only open/close portals during daytime, when it's not night time. At night time, the game rules are suspended until the next day.

You can store items in blocks called chests. These require an enchantment table on which they're placed when created.
