Trekking in Nepal

 

HOW NEPAL COMPARES WITH OTHER COUNTRIES

  • trekking is affordable;
  • lots of new and undiscovered areas, which are now accessible after opening of East to West traverse along 'THE GREAT HIMALAYA TRAIL', now the longest trekking trail in the world;
  • full of nature which is second to none (e.g. the highest mountain in the world, the longest and most beautiful mountain range in the world, most of the 8000m high mountains in the world, deepest gorge in the world, numerous glacial rivers and alipine lakes waiting to be explored and so on....). 

 

Nepal contains more than 240 peaks over 20,000 feet (6,096m) above sea level and is home to 8 of the world’s 14 tallest mountains known as “Eight- thousanders” with a height of 8,000m or more.   Known most commonly for Mount Everest & the Himalayas, Nepal offers the chance for trekkers to get off the beaten track and to truly get amongst it. Many of the treks use the traditional walking trails of the locals and historic trade routes between Tibet, Nepal and India.

WHY DO PEOPLE LOVE TREKKING IN NEPAL?

Top five reasons:

  • Adventure and exploration;

  • High altitude;

  • Mountain scenery;

  • Pristine and wild nature;

  • Living culture and cultural diversity.

 

Other reasons:

  • Treks suitable to a wide range of fitness and experience levels and age groups are available.

  • This is the only country in the world to offer trekking without the need for a tent. Tea house trekking (lodge trekking) is popular for the comfort and experience it offers. Accommodation & meals along the trail are provided in local tea houses, offering the chance to really absorb local village culture along the way. Camping (organised trekking) is supported by a team of guides, cooks, porters and sherpas who accompany you along the way and can offer great local understanding and knowledge.

  • Trekking routes are in remote parts of Nepal, either in subtropical regions featured by hills, green forests, rice terraces, farmlands, lakes, rivers and waterfalls or alpine regions featured by tall snow-capped mountains, temples, monasteries and glacier lakes.

  • Most of the trekking takes place in the conserved & remote areas of the Himalayas, providing you the best chance to observe the eco system and bio diversity. On the trail, you will walk through local villages which are cultural hubs of rural and ethnic Nepal, reflecting unique community and spiritual living.

  • Changing scenery and landscapes every few hours of the journey. No day is the same as you pass different villages, flora & fauna, sometimes rare species of both, people of different faces & attires, cultural and heritage sites.

  • Along the way, you will experience firsthand the welcoming and friendly nature of the Nepalese people. Renowned for their smiles and hospitality.

 

As with all trekking, preparation is required. The high altitudes of some treks require preparation and Sherpa Tours are more than happy to discuss this with you.
