Trekking in Nepal
Trekking in Nepal is the best way to experience Nepal's unbeatable combination of natural beauty and culture. On beaten trails or virgin tracks, Nepal is a trekker's paradise. The very organic rhythm of foot travel is a wonderful way to explore and make meaningful contact with this extraordinary country.
Along with forests of rhododendron, a multitude of birds and animals, temples and monasteries, you will also encounter many small mountain villages. In these isolated hamlets, friendly people of diverse cultures offer a fascinating glimpse of traditional rural life. And in the background, every step of the way, is the magnificent presence of the Himalayan peaks - providing breathtaking panoramic views.
Trekking usually consists of a series of ascents and descents walking 5 to 7 hours (9 to 14 km per day on average with a guide, cook and porters and on some occasion’s pack animals.
The objective of trekking is not just the particular destination, but also the journey itself. You travel at a modest pace, observing nature, rural communities, and spectacular mountain panoramas.
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 signposts.
Trekkers rely on our staff for path finding and an introduction to the local people, culture, religion, and lifestyle. A trekking route will often pass through forests of rhododendron, bamboo, oak, and hemlock, visiting one or two villages each day. Rivers are crossed on log passages or suspension bridges.
Our job is to ensure your comfort and safety as we take you where you want to go, at your own pace. We show you what you have come to see, and help you discover things you had no idea were there!
We offer a wide variety of different treks to suit both novices and experienced trekkers. Whether you have two days or two months to spend in the Himalayas, we can tailor- make itineraries to suit your needs.
