Trekking

Nepal has attracted trekkers from around the world. The diversity of Trekking Trails in Nepal cannot be found in any other part of the world. In fact, the lowest point in Nepal is 59 m above sea level, while the highest point is Mt. Everest, 8,848 m above sea level, the points being only 200 km apart as the crow flies.

There are varieties of trekking Trails ranging from few days hiking to month long treks through valleys and High Mountain passes. The most challenging is the Great Himalayan Trails, an extensive trail system that covers Nepal from Humla & Darchula in the west to Kanchanjanga in the East.

Trekkers can find a trail any time of year. Post monsoon weather tends to be clearer. Winter is good but colder with shorter days and spring can be affected by seasonal rain and snow storms. Summer is short and is quickly followed by the monsoons. Monsoon treks are usually in the dry Manang and Mustang areas. However, the rains don't pour 24 hours and they bring spectacular flowers to life. It is also the perfect time to consider one of the regions in the rain shadow which typically feature more barren Tibetan type scenery as opposed to the greenness on other side.
