When it comes to adventure, you cannot forget to mention the mountain. Where there are mountains, there is also a trekking trail. Have you ever imagined being in a country that has the world’s 8 highest mountains? That country is Nepal, the world’s cheapest destination to visit. Nepal has geographical diversities of mountains, hills, valleys, forests, plains, lakes, and rivers.
After you see one mountain, you will be satisfied, but what will you call if you see a group of mountains. This group is called the Himalayas. They lie in the upper part of Nepal, precisely speaking the northern side of Nepal. There, you will see the people that have Mongolian features. They are mostly known as the Sherpas, Gurung, Rai, and Magar. You will know more about their cultures as you stay in their lodges. The Sherpas are the world’s best climbers. Remember Tenzing Norgay Sherpa who climbed Mount Everest with Edmund Hillary.
Everest Base Camp Trek
Is there anyone who hasn’t heard of Mount Everest, the world’s highest peak? The trekking trail from Lukla to the Everest Base Camp is one of the favorite trekking trails of the trekkers. This trekking trail offers you the best view of the mountains. You will become so happy that you will shed tears.
Trekking is also knowing about the culture of the mountain people. Trekking is also for the people who are fit without prior experience. Some of the famous treks that you can do in Nepal have been mentioned below.
Annapurna Base Camp Trek
This is the best trek when you have a short vacation of 10 days. You will be in the world’s renowned Annapurna Sanctuary. This trek is not that difficult compared to the Everest Base Camp Trek, but it has an uphill trekking trail that is slightly tough. When it comes to summiting Annapurna, the climbing route is very difficult. In front of this mountain, you feel like a small insect, but when you look at this mountain and the sun rising behind it, you will forget all your tiredness. The memory of crossing a suspension bridge will make this trek more adventurous.
Lang Tang Valley Trek
The Lang Tang Valley lies close to Tibet, and the trek that you do there is for the people who have a short vacation of 11 days. The valley has a lot of diverse vegetation, including lush forest, alpine forest, and yak pastures. It has a famous monastery called Kyanjin Gompa. You will climb Kyanjin Ri to see a panoramic view. Similarly from Tserko Ri, you will see a satisfying view of Annapurnas, Makalu, and Langtang Ri. Just like other treks, you will reach a rural area. But here, you will know the culture of the Tamang people. Although the valley lies close to Kathmandu, yet you will experience a lot of adventure. You will also be walking in a glacier.
Manaslu Circuit Trek
The trekking trail circles Mount Makalu, the world’s eighth highest mountain and takes you to the highest elevation of 5000 m plus. You reach a lush forest, a barren land, and a rocky area. The trekking trail not only consists of these but also of a temporary wooden plank. The Tsum Valley, Mu Gompa, and Larke La Pass are the highlights of this trek. From the Manaslu Base Camp, you will have an experience of embracing this mountain.
Upper Mustang Trek
The two weeks is enough for this trek. Upper Mustang is also known as the Hidden Kingdom of Nepal. It is between the Himalayas and the high mountains of Tibet. The trek starts from the windiest place of Nepal, called Jomsom and takes you to desert. From the trekking route, you will see the breath-taking view of Nilgiri, Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, and the other Himalayas.
