Trekking in Nepal

The huge mainstream of the countryside of Nepal is still unreachable by road, unseen endless edges and valleys and crossed by a group of trails crushed for centuries by traders, pilgrims, porters, locals and mountaineers from village to town, plains to hills, Nepal to Tibet. Until you have beaten this group of trails on foot you can’t truly say you have experienced the spirit of Nepal while trekking in Nepal.

Trekking in Nepal is not like hiking through less populated national park. Local people are continuously passing by on the routes, typically carrying surprising heavy loads. You will meet up Gurungs, Sherpas, Rai, Thakali people and pass by several monasteries, sacred lakes, temples and some of them also perform impressive religious festivals. Wherever you go, as a trekker you will get to experience the kindliness, outgoing nature and good humor that distinguishes almost all Nepalese. Most of the trekkers remark that while they come to Nepal for the mountains, they will return because of the locals, and natural beauty.
