Trekking



Introduction

Trekking in Nepal can be challenging, adventurous, unforgettable and the best way to explore and see the glimpse of Nepal by walking.  Generally, being a landlocked country, Nepal offers not only the panoramic view of snowcapped mountains but also the essence of deep cultural diversity. With eight of the world’s ten highest peak- including of course Everest, Nepal’s 800-kilometer Himalayan chain are more than just the majestic attraction, a powerful spiritual pull. The trail along the mountains and high rapid rivers coming from snow offers you close view of the tallest peaks, dramatic scenery and fascinating local cultures. Beside, Trekking in Nepal is adventurous task of lifetime but is also one of the best options to enjoy the nature without much equipments and previous experiences. A person with sound health and physically fit can  go on a trek without much of the exercise but yes, the physical strength is of course required!! Generally, trekking can be done in all seasons; however the best one is during autumn (early Oct to early Dec). This season is normally dry, stable and very clear so you can touch the Himalayas with your eyes. However, this season you will be seeing most tourists throughout the trail and you may find the popular routes such as Everest or Annapurna like streets with mountains. Winter (Dec to Jan) can be dry, colder and snowing. Any trail up 2500m will have a snow fall and the views of the Himalayas can be rare unless or until you cross 4000m which is again impossible due to heavy snowfall. Though the trek above 4000m in this season be very cold and freezing, a good gear and trekking equipment will lead you to the most magical treks with some extraordinary views of the Himalayas. The spring (Feb- Apr) is warmer and the season of rhododendron (Nepal’s national flower) so walking in the rhododendron forest with snow views can be fascinating. During May and June, it gets hotter, hazier and increasingly unsettled.
