Trekking in Nepal
Comprising eight of the top ten highest summits in the world and some of the most beautiful landscapes, Nepal provides one of the unique trekking experiences of Asia.
Travelers in Nepal provide huge options from the capital, Kathmandu, to the travel hub Himalayas. The diversity allows people of many ages and capabilities to attempt a trek in Nepal.
While you could spend a year planning an expedition to wild and risky places that few would dare attempt, you could also arrive in Kathmandu with no plans and be on the trail in a matter of days with abrupt comfort. Besides what many may perceive, trekking in Nepal is not necessarily wandering alone through an uncharted wilderness.
As they walk along the well-marked trekking paths, travelers will often discover quite the extraordinary. Hundreds of locals pass through each day as they haul adventure, food, and other odd necessities back to their tiny villages, along with dozens of fellow trekkers.
The mountain routes will be a guide providing knowledge and a friend to witness the strong culture and unreserved friendliness of diversified trekking routes of Nepal.
Among many trekking regions in Nepal, there are a few most popular ones where thousands of trekkers come every year. The trekking destinations are in Nepal’s Eastern, Central, and Western parts. The mountain regions lie in the eastern, central, and western which are:
Eastern Nepal: Everest, Kanchenjunga, Rolwaling, and Makalu
Central Nepal: Annapurna, Langtang, Manang and Manaslu
Western Nepal: Dolpa, Mugu, Api and Saipal
Nepal’s most popular trekking regions are Everest, Annapurna, and Langtang. There are many other off-the-beaten trails such as Dolpa, Kanchenjunga, Manaslu, Manang, Makalu, Rolwaling, Mugu, Api and Saipal.
Annapurna Region, situated in the central northern part of Nepal, has the shortest to the longest trekking trails. Thorung La Pass (5416 meters) comes under one of the longest passes in this region. The trekking routes in the Annapurna region are mainly easy to moderate, but few are challenging.
Since this is a popular trekking route, you will meet lots of other trekkers from Nepal and worldwide and make a friendly bond with them. While walking the trail, you will see the ethnic villages of Gurungs and Magars and get to know their culture and lifestyle. Also, you will see many oldest monasteries in the world while doing the Nar Phu Valley trek and many mysterious caves on the routes, which you will be fascinated to see.
The breathtaking majestic Himalayans lie very close to your eyes which you will keep in your heart forever.
Dolpa Region is located in the western part of Nepal and is famous for its scenic beauty and its typical Tibetan- influenced Buddhist culture. If you want to spend a good number of days trekking in remote areas, this is the perfect option. Since this is a remote trekking trail, the facilities are limited compared to Annapurna and Everest region. You can witness the stunning views of Dhaulagiri and other Tibetan peaks in this trekking region.
If you are an adventurous person and want your trek to be a bit challenging, then you can do certain passes such as Kang La Pass (5360 meters), Shey La Pass (5010 meters), and Nyimagalzen La Pass (5600 meters). Compared to the other trekking regions with the Dopla region, the rainfall is less in the monsoon season, so that you can trek around June, July, and August. You will also have the opportunity of seeing the 800 years old monastery known as ‘Shey Gompa.’
This trek is quite different from other trekking routes since you will be passing through the beautiful lakes of Nepal; Shey Phoksundo lake (the deepest lake in Nepal) and Rara Lake (The largest Lake in Nepal).
One of Nepal’s most popular and widely renowned trekking trails is the Everest region, also known as the Khumbu region. Tengboche monastery, the largest Tibetan Buddhist monastery, is situated in this region. Gokyo Ri (5357 meters) in the Khumbu region is a viewpoint for the three highest peaks of Nepal; Everest(8848m), Makalu(8485m), and Cho Oyu(8188m).
The crystal clear, blue, and green water of the Gokyo Lakes is this region’s most beautiful sight. Namche Bazar is the gateway to Mount Everest, and you will be amazed to see the facilities and hotels there. The pubs and luxurious resorts in Namche are a fascinating experience at the highest altitude.
The most adventurous and thrilling experience starts from the very beginning of this trek at Lukla airport. Lukla airport is also known as one of the most dangerous airports globally. The trekkers can enjoy the majestic Everest view from Kala Patthar- the trek’s highest point, which is 5644 meters.
