Highlights

 

Recommendation

Discovering the unbridled beauty of Nepal amidst the throngs of trekkers that descend on the more popular regions could be difficult. If you choose an ‘off-the-beaten-track’ destination, the scenery and cultural aspects you observe will be top-notch. Thus, selecting a less popular trek will enable you to avoid the peak-season crush and still receive spectacular views in fine weather along with indelible cultural experiences. You may be better off this way, by exploring the real Nepal – its natural beauty, friendly spirit and unspoilt culture.
