Trekking and hiking is one of the biggest attractions of Nepal. Trekking in Nepal was started in the early 1960’s. The word ‘Trekking’ means a constant walking being in close contact with nature at a slow pace in the areas where life style is unchanged. There are two major treks in Nepal, Everest Base Camp trekking and trekking around Annapurna also known as Annapurna Circuit as it goes right around the Annapurna Himalayan range.
There are many different trekking and hiking routes available in the Everest and Annapurna regions. Another popular destination in the Everest region is the Gokyo Valley, the Lake and the top Gokyo Ri where one can enjoy the massive views of Mt. Everest, Cho Oyu and of course the stunning panorama of the Himalayas. Other regions such as Langtang, Helambu, Makalu, Manaslu, Kanchenjunga, Dolpo and the western Nepal are also popular destinations.
Trekking through the high passes could be a great adventure for those who accept mountain challenges. So, trekking and hiking in Nepal could be an unforgettable moment of life that goes through the rhododendron and green forests, rice fields, crossing over the streams and water falls, camping out on a hilltop in the wilderness with the high mountains in the background. In fact, Nepal is popular for multiple treks all the year round.
