Trekking in Nepal
Trekking in the Nepal Himalaya will take you through a country that has captured the imagination of travelers. You will meet people in remote mountain villages whose lifestyles have not changed in generations. You will gain lifetime memories of the culture and lifestyles of the different ethnic people you encounter, the geography, scenery, and more. Trekkers walk along rough but beautiful trails in the lap of lush green hills experiencing deep, dense rhododendron forests, many varieties of trees and seasonally blossoming flowers, domestic and wild animals, and multiple species of birds, monasteries, temples, mountains, rock formations, breathtaking landscapes, and warm greetings from smiling local people.
Nepal is home to eight of the world's 14 peaks above 8000 meters, including “Sagarmatha,” Mt. Everest, at 8848 meters the highest peak in the world. This land of numerous stunning mountain peaks is the best destination on earth for mountaineering, peak climbing and trekking. The most popular areas in the Nepal Himalaya are the Everest, Annapurna, and Langtang Helambu regions, which attract several thousand teahouse or camping trekkers each year. In addition, there are many other regions for camping treks including Mustang, Manaslu, Kanchenjunga, round Dhaulagiri, Makalu, Renjo Pass, Lower and Upper Dolpo, Ganesh Himal, Narphu, and more. All have spectacular scenery and interesting villages. We offer customized treks of any range, from easy countryside hikes to strenuous treks leading to high Himalayan passes, all of them tailored to your specific needs and intended to provide you with a memorable holiday.
Depending on where you wish to go, trekking is possible at any time of year in Nepal. The most popular seasons are spring (March-May) and autumn (September-November). Winter is very cold above 3,500 meters, and high mountain passes may be snowbound, but during that time it is possible to trek at lower altitudes. During the monsoon season (May-August), you may trek in the rainshadow areas north of the Himalaya like Upper Mustang, Upper Dolpo, and Tibet as well. These places are out of reach of the rain clouds because of the high mountains and are unaffected by the monsoon.
Among the many tourist adventure activities in Nepal, trekking is by far the most popular. The variation in altitudes and climates in Nepal create a spectacular mix of lifestyles, vegetation and wildlife. The resulting diversity of flora and fauna in Nepal and its range of exotic culture make this country ideal for trekking, which is as much a cultural experience as it is a Himalayan adventure. Nepal is also known as the birthplace of Lord Buddha, the light of Asia, and here Hindus and Buddhists live together in harmony. We heartily welcome you to visit Nepal at least once in your lifetime so that you can have an opportunity to experience the ultimate in nature's beauty and cultural diversity.
