Trekking in Nepal
Is trekking/ hiking the best way to experience Nepal’s elegance?
Nepal offers one of the finest trekking trails in the world like the Mt.Everest Base Camp, Annapurna Region, Langtang, Mustang and other lofty Himalayan sites. Even treks to Tibet, Bhutan or India in Ladakh and Sikkim area are promising.
Either on beaten trails or off the beaten path which is known as virgin tracks Nepal is a trekker’s delight. The organic rhythm of foot travel is a wonderful way to explore and make a significant contact with the country and its people. The objective of trekking is not just the particular destination but the journey itself. You travel at a modest pace, observing nature, rural communities and spectacular mountain panoramas.
A trekking route will often open passes for travelers to witness the forests consisting of rhododendron, bamboo, oak and hemlock.
Trekking usually consists of a series of ascents and descents walking for up to 5 to 7 hours (9 to 14 kms) per day on an average in the company of a guide, a cook and porters and on some occasions in addition you may also need to befriend horde of animals. Rivers are in general crossed on log passages or suspension bridges and it is not unusual to cross the snowfields in the morning as well as bathe in the sub-tropical streams in the afternoon.
For the most part, trekking routes are well traveled by local people but remain unmarked by sign posts so our trekkers rely on our guides intended for path guidance and to get introduced to the local people along with our culture, our religion and our lifestyle. Our guides will ensure your comfort and safety as well as let you explore the surroundings at your own pace. Most of the rural villages also provide home stay facilities for the travelers where you can explore the know-how of that particular region.
