Trekking is an adventurous way of traveling through the hills and mountains and in Nepal, trekking often includes world-famous views of the Himalaya and scenic surroundings. Trekking is a favorite activity for tourists to Nepal and is a great way to get to know the land and its residents. It involves getting up close and personal with nature while hiking for multiple days through hills and valleys to areas that are often far away from vehicle travel.

As an adventure activity, trekking is mostly done for entertainment, excitement, cultural interaction and education – getting to know a country and its people, culture, landscape and scenery among other highlights. For mountain climbing expeditions, trekking is often the first part of the journey where the mountaineers get used to the increasing altitude as well as the climate and landscape. Nepal’s renowned trekking regions include the Everest region, Annapurna and Langtang with many more areas that have been developed and that are up and coming including the whole rest of the hills up to the Himalaya!

Routes take trekkers travel through picturesque farmland and villages, remote hills, forests and valleys with Himalayan fed streams and rivers. Visitors can take in some of the most beautiful scenery on earth while trekking in Nepal. Facilities along trekking trails are usually more basic than facilities in urban areas and overnight accommodation is in lodges, teahouses and tents and sometimes a combination depending on location and availability of facilities. Now a days, accommodation and meals can be arranged along most trails at lodges and teahouses, especially on the popular routes. In the not so distant past, travelers and porters traveled together with sufficient tents, food and equipment because of a lack of facilities and accommodation, especially in the more remote, uninhabited areas. Our teahouse treks are organized with accommodation and meals along entire routes.

The government regulates most of the areas where trekking is done and permits are required for entering Nepal’s extensive range of national parks and conservation areas.
