Trekking

Trekking is the popular tourism activity in Nepal. The experience of walking through Nepalese villages, learning their cultures and natural views on the way along are considered once in a life time experience. The Nepalese landscape with varying altitudes up to 5300 meters for trekking at various routes are to experience true Nepalese lifestyle of indigenous people, their culture and their habitat.


Along with forests of rhododendron, isolated hamlets, small mountain villages, birds, animals, temples, monasteries, and beautiful landscapes, one can also meet the very friendly people of different ethnic groups offering a glimpse of fabulous cultures and traditions.

 

Trekking is possible any time round the year but depends upon the place one is visiting. However, the popular seasons for trekking in Nepal are spring and autumn. During winter trekking is possible in low lands with low altitudes where as in Monsoon, the rain shadow areas- north of the Himalaya like Mus?tang. Upper Manang and Dolpo would be perfect.

Nepal has many government registered trekking agencies operating trekking activities with skilled and experienced human resources. The agencies also provide all the necessary gears and equipment for trekking depending upon its length and type. Short treks or day hike also can be done to the nearest of Kathmandu if one doesn't want to take a long trek but they might not be as adventurous as the ones done in Annapuma, Everest and Langtang areas.

 

For those who have already been to most of the popular trekking areas, newly opened destinations such as Nar and Phu of Manang, Ghana Pokhara and Ghale Gaun of Larnjung could be the right alternatives. A permit is necessary for trekking in Nepal which can easily be received with the help of trekking agencies.
