Nepal has always been a haven for adventure trekkers. The Nepalese Himalayas houses some of the most spectacular trekking routes you’ll ever come across. It’s almost impossible to pick the best among them. Each one has some unique properties, which make it a must-try option.
There are a series of factors that you must consider when determining which trek would be best for you. These include difficulty level, the number of days you’ll need to complete the treks, your budget, your preferred trek style, and more. The section below talks about the most popular Nepal Treks. Read through the discussion carefully and make your pick.
The Everest Base Camp Trek
If you have always dreamt of enjoying the breathtaking views of the world’s highest peak from close quarters, this is the trek you must try as soon as possible. The trek would give you the chance to witness the amazing Sherpa villages and their unique lifestyles.
If you want, you can also try different treks, which will give you the chance to relish the striking view of the Gokyo Lakes at Nepal’s Sagarmatha National Park. These treks usually need around 12 to 14 days to finish.
Indeed, reaching the top of Everest is something only a handful of people can achieve. However, with a little effort, you can surely manage to walk up to the Everest Base Camp. And it’s needless to say that even the journey to the base camp is exceedingly adventurous.
The Annapurna Circuit Trek
This trek allows trekkers to explore a wide range of terrains. You will get to walk through jungles, explore lush valleys, travel through high alpines, and climb arid peaks.
Other than experiencing the natural diversity of the Annapurna region, you’ll also get to witness the area’s rich culture. As you will walk, you’ll get to enjoy the striking views of Dhaulagiri, Manaslu, Langtang Himal, Annapurnas, and Macchapucchre.
If you want to make the most of the Annapurna Circuit Trek, take at least two weeks’ break from work.
The Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek
Many also refer to this trek as the Ghandruk Ghorepani Trek. If you don’t want the trek to be too adventurous, this is one of the best trekking options you’ll get in Nepal.
The Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek will allow you to walk through terraced farmlands while enjoying the scintillating beauty of the gorgeous rhododendron forests in Nepal. During this journey, you’ll meet the most hospitable people you will ever come across in your life. They are primarily residents of the Gurung villages.
If you want to enjoy the rhododendrons in their bloom, you should plan the trek sometime during the spring. If that’s not possible, plan your trip between October and November. Another great attraction of the trek is the teahouse accommodation.
Whichever might be the trek you choose you must ensure that you have in-depth knowledge about the path you’ll explore. You can seek assistance from a travel agency or hire a guide who will accompany you wherever you go.
