Given its striking natural beauty and rich cultural heritage, Nepal is renowned as the best trekking spot in the world. If you are seeking an enjoyable, unique and rewarding place for trekking, you will certainly find it here. Not only will you encounter snow-capped mountains and wildlife, but also indigenous ethnic groups with rich cultures. And let’s not forget the sublime sunrise and sunset views over the mountains, the unique flora and fauna, the breath-taking landscapes, the spectacular rivers and waterfalls, the ancient temples and monasteries, and the caravans of yaks.
A trek is the best way to see the country and understand its people. Walking through emerald rice fields and rhododendron forests, and camping out on a hilltop in the wilderness encircled by towering mountains are all things that make trekking an unforgettable experience.
Trekking is possible at any time of the year depending on where you are going. The most popular seasons are spring and autumn. During the winter season, trekking at lower altitudes is recommended. During the monsoon season, you can trek in the rain-shadow areas on the northern side of the Himalayas.
