Trekking in Nepal

With its high towering mountains and sublime hills that run right below it, Nepal is a trekking haven with so much astounding geological amusement. Within a span of  147,516 square kilometres there lie over 600 Himalayan mountains with 8 of them elevating beyond staggering 8000 metres. Trekking in Nepal has been one of the most sought-after activities since its inception back in the 50s after Maurice Herzog summited Annapurna I. Also, after Jimmy Roberts took the initiative of organising the first commercial trekking with 6 American ladies to Everest Base Camp, Nepal trekking became one of the popular activities globally.

The Nepalese topography and sparsely distributed settlements of rural villages make Treks in Nepal fulfilling and amusing for adventure enthusiasts. Most of the Nepalese territory elongates with the high Himalayas to the north bordering Tibet. To name a few: Mt.Saipal, Mt.Kanjirowa, Mt.Dhaulagiri, Mt. Annapurna, Mt.Manaslu, Mt.Langtang, Mt.Gaurishankar, Mt. Everest, Mt. Cho Ooyu, Mt. Makalu, Mt.Kanchenjunga are amongst the popular Himalayan mountains spread across the Nepalese Himalayan belts.

There are numerous white water river that flows south from these mountains cutting through narrow gorges of the Mahabharata hills in the mid portion of the country. There is dense and colossal varieties of flora and Fauna spread across these hilly sections. The high which encores the Himalayan mountains act as a gateway to the base of these mountains. In almost every trek in Nepal that you embark on, we follow the raging Himalayan river which originates from the glacier formed at the base of these towering mountains. Everest Base Camp Trek follows through Dudh Koshi River Basin, Manaslu Circuit Trek follows through Budhi Gandaki River Basin, Langtang Trek follows the Langtang River while Annapurna Circuit Trek follows the mighty Marsyanghdi River. As stated before the hilly sections of Nepal is enriched with a rich biodiversity of flora and fauna that includes numerous plants and animals. Any trek in Nepal will most certainly pierce through a conservation area or national park. Annapurna Conservation Area Project, Manaslu Conservation Area, Sagarmatha National Park, and Makalu Barun Conservation Area are amongst a few areas that are home to rare endangered species. This makes trekking in Nepal one of the best experiences.
