Trekking Information

Nepal is one of the most spectacular trekking destinations in the world. Trekking in Nepal will take you through a country that has captured the imagination of mountaineers and explorers for more than 100 years. You will meet people in remote mountain villages where the lifestyle has not changed in generations. While trekking, you will see the great cultural, biographical and geographical diversity of Nepal. Here the villages embrace many ethnic groups and cultures. The beauty and attraction of Nepalese Himalayas origins not only from the mountains but also from their surroundings. Nepal is a country of friendly people, picturesque villages and a great variety of cultures and traditions. Only trekkings can offer you a deep insight and interaction with this unique culture and adventurous landscapes.

A trekking in Nepal is a unique event and differs a lot from other countries or regions like the Alps. Just outside the capital of Kathmandu, you enter a new world. A world that brings you into an extraordinary culture that has been experienced best…..by foot! It takes a lot of effort, but the reward is undoubtedly great. Following the footsteps on ancient trails offer you every chance of encountering culture and nature. So enrich yourself! Every step you take in one way or another follows the historic bold tracks that Edmund Hillary, Tenzing Norgay, and other Himalayan explorers made 50 years ago. Some areas are even undiscovered by foreigners so in rare cases you will find yourself hundred years back in time. The adventure begins!

A trekking does not mean that you are technically climbing a mountain. Trekking can even be relaxing, although you probably will walk most of the time at a greater height than the highest mountain in the Alps!
Trekking means that you immerse in the diversity of culture and nature. As a good example, the Dhaulagiri Circuit takes you through various zones: jungles, highlands, mountains -in less than 130km, and you meet very different ethnic groups and cultures. This includes trekking in the Khumbu (Mount Everest) the Langtang, Annapurna, Kanchanjanga, Makalu, Gaurishankar region and some restricted areas.

In Nepal, we always strongly advise to take a guide and porter to make your holidays enjoyable and safe. Only a guide can explain about culture, nature, and other aspects of Nepalese societies. He knows everything there is to know and you can enrich yourself with this important and interesting information. The porter will carry a part of your luggage, so you can more easily enjoy the surroundings. By this way, you also contribute to the employment in Nepal whereas many local people rely heavily on employment in this sector.
