What is trekking?

Trekking usually consists of a series of ascents and descents walking 5 to 7 hours (9 to 14 kms per day on average with a guide, cook and porters and on some occasions pack animals.
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.

Either on beaten trails or off the beaten path which is known as virgin tracks, Nepal is a trekker's paradise. The organic rhythm of foot travel is a wonderful way to explore and make meaningful contact with the country and it's friendly people.

Rivers are crossed on log passages or suspension bridges. Himalayas of Nepal are the most popular trekking region in the world.
It’s not unusual to cross snowfields in the morning and bathe in sub-tropical streams in the afternoon. For the most part, trekking routes are well traveled by local people, but remain unmarked without sign posts.

The Mountain Kingdom Nepal, is bounded on the north by the peaks of the highest mountains on Earth, the Himalayas. In the south is the incredibly flat Terai region, home to: Tigers, elephants, rhinoceros, and innumerable exotic birds. In between the high peaks and the Terai is an amazing diversity of ecosystems, cultures, and terrains in what is called the middle hills. From the high Himalayan yak grazing pastures of the Sherpa people, the great capital cities and ancient empires of the middle hills, to the prolific assembly of temples and monuments in the Kathmandu Valley, Nepal is characterized by friendly people, colorful traditions, harmonious religious life, and a lively and distinctive cultural tradition. The unique geography and traditional people of Nepal give this small Kingdom a wide breadth of travel options, including: Rafting the snow-melt waters cascading off the high peaks, trekking in the high mountains and traditional villages, mountain biking winding trails, safari in the jungles of the world renowned Chitwan and Bardia National Parks, and touring intimate towns and markets.

Your trip will be led and planned by the most experienced leaders not by the managers at the office who send you the set of itineraries. The idea is to bring people closer to the Himalayas and all they have to offer through carefully designed trips which unite the natural history, the present scientific understanding, and the unique cultures of this region. The result: a deeper appreciation of the Himalayan Mountains, the splendor of the plants and animals, and the cheerful perseverance of the people. That's why we operate so many cultural, wildlife, and natural science tours, and always with only the best guides. Each trip maximizes the exposure to Himalayan lifestyles & wilderness, while still maintaining the safety of our groups (clients).
