Trekking in Nepal

Trekking in Nepal

A trek is a mountain walk from place to place, rather than just rambling or day walking from a fixed base. A trek is not necessarily more arduous or uncomfortable than center-based sojourns, we beleive they are more interesting and rewarding.

Trekking appeals to different people for different reasons. Most are drawn to the healthy exercise and magnificent mountain scenery, both of which are more or less guaranteed. Next thing is the best way to experience Nepal's unbeatable combination of natural beauty and cultural riches is to walk through them. The immense contrast in altitude and climates found here support and equally spectacular mix of lifestyles, vegetation types and wildlife.

Trekking in the mountains of Nepal is thus like moving through a colourful tableau. It is more a cultural experience than wilderness expedition. You will be passing through picturesque villages inhabited by diverse ethnic groups. You will see Chhetri farmers working in their fields and Tamang herders grazing their animals on the steep slopes and Sherpa yak drivers transporting goods over the high mountain passes. And always in the background, the icy pinnacles of the Himalaya loom over the scenery.
