I have never done trekking in my life. So, these wonderful informations are provided by you too are new for me. But, sometimes I do heard that Nepal is very much diverse in this context and also why nepal is best for trekking the reasons you gave I feel are apt.
I’ve watched a few documentaries already about climbing Nepal, have a few friends also who went up there, plus a bunch of YouTubers, the place is really amazing and I think most adventurers would have it included on their bucket list. I guess this is one place that’s really one of a kind.
I love hiking and do it wherever and whenever possible… but I haven’t had the opportunity to trek professionally. EBC is on my bucket list n I am going to do it. I agree Nepal is a paradise for trekkers Harjeet and the reasons you have mentioned are so apt. Last summer we went to Nepal and in October to Bhutan and we realized how expensive a Himalayan trek is in Bhutan and moreover one was not even open to Indians. On the other hand, Nepal has something for all levels with able guidance and great experiences.
I like hiking and being in nature. EBC is on my bucket list and Nepal in general has many wonderful places to experience nature. There has been some controversy around cheap tours allowing not so skilled guides and seekers attempting to climb the Everest. In general though as your post so aptly suggests there are many adventures and tours available to genpop. This is also good local economy. I like how your guest post has a positive vibe with some great pictures and it’s to read/follow.
Trekking is always fascinating me ! But never did it. Hardly I am able to trek any fort. With breathing issue Mr. Hubby do not allow me to do trek. This is one of the dream of my hubby to do trek at Nepal. Your post is really helpful.
This information is definitely what I needed, my daughter has been wanting to see snow so bad and after this post I know exactly where to take her. Thanks
I have never been to Nepal. All the trekking I have done it has been in India. Your article has appealed me to try it out. Nepal is certainly less expensive and I guess it would be perfect to try it out.
Exploring Nepal is definitely in my list but trekking is not my cup of tea or better to say few health hazards don’t permit me to go for trekking. But I have many friends who are experienced trekkers and explored many trekking trails which includes the ones of Nepal too. I can feel how thrilling the experience will be for the trekkers when they overcome several barriers while trekking to achieve new heights. I lost one of my friends in the midst of the Himalayas when he was snow trapped while trekking and later body was discovered. There are many pros and cons of trekking but overall its an adventurous experience at least what I heard from the trekker friends. The post is truly informative.
That’s a good detailed guide to trekking in Nepal. I have been there twice but this is the first time, I have really thought about the trekking popularity. Personally, I am not a trekker and look for easy hikes.
I’m planning on going for a trek in the Himalayas for a long time but somehow it keeps getting delayed. It would be quite a thrilling experience to explore nature, culture as well as the food there.
