TREKKING IN THE NEPAL HIMALAYAS
Housing some of the world’s most formidable peaks, the Himalayan range can be considered the holy grail of climbers and mountain enthusiasts. Your visit is not complete without immersing yourself in the beautiful landscapes and amazing mountain villages of these different trekking routes.
To the east lies the esteemed Everest Region, housing the famous Mt. Everest, known as Sagarmatha to the Nepalese and Chomolungma to the Tibetans. Trekking in this region gives you a wide range of cultural and wilderness experiences. Aside from housing five of the ten highest peaks in the world, Everest region is also home to a huge population of the Sherpa people, an ethnic group that has been living in the mountainous regions of Nepal for several centuries.
The Annapurna Region, on the other hand, is considered the most popular destination to trekkers because of its breathtaking landscapes, traditional mountain villages with intact culture and traditions, and trekking routes of varying degrees of difficulty. Thousands of trekkers visit this area each year to have a taste of the natural beauty it has to offer.
If mainstream routes such as Everest and Annapurna regions are not your cup of tea, you can also choose to venture in the less touristy, yet equally stunning destinations like Langtang, Manaslu and Mustang regions. They offer fantastic landscapes and accessibility and extensive array of trails comparable to their more popular counterparts.
