Trekking in Nepal is still the most favoured adventure holiday activity in the country. The two classic trekking routes either to Everest base camp or the Annapurna circuit are not easy and the challenge you’ll face on either route will have a lasting effect. The Manaslu route trek around the world’s eighth largest mountain is more remote but no less beautiful passing through stunning bamboo forests, villages filled with prayer flags and culminating with spectacular views from larkya La. Mustang is an easier trek, suitable for those with good general fitness but not necessarily any previous trekking experience. The language, culture and tradition of the Mustang region are still mostly Tibetan making this one of the most culturally interesting treks. There are shorter treks up the Langtang Valley which are still hard work but also deeply rewarding. They generally begin in Kathmandu, leading through large grazing areas covered in flowers, dotted with stone huts used for butter making, Sherpa villages and the homes of yak herders, right up to the Tibetan border.
Nepal, sitting at the roof of the world, is the ultimate destination for trekkers and adventurers, one of those once in a life time destinations that sits on the wish list of many devoted travellers.
