To say that Nepal is the ultimate destination for trekking would be an understatement. Any passionate trekker should not miss an opportunity to come over to Nepal for trekking. It offers treks for a wide variety of preferences; from the easier 1 – 2 day hikes to the more challenging, yet even more exciting, treks that can extend up to many weeks. In fact, the Lonely Planet recommends the Mustang trek in Nepal as one of the seven best destinations in the world. Trekking to the base camp of the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest, and to the high passes which were and still are trading routes , is a once-in-a lifetime opportunity.

Nepal’s rich and diverse flora and fauna is what is on offer for those who choose to undertake these treks. Whether you are simply a nature lover or an ardent bird watcher or someone who relishes exotic orchids and flowers, you will not be disappointed. The highest peaks in the world tower above you with the deep blue skies as backdrop as you wind your way through quaint villages and barley and buckwheat fields. Glaciers are also a wondrous sight that you will take your breath away. The cool, crisp air combines with the local flora to rejuvenate your lungs. The trails are not always manmade and have been created by natural movement of man and animal. Along the way there are many Monasteries, Gumbas, Chhorten and mani walls belonging to Buddhist religion. Glacial lakes and towering waterfalls offer some of the world’s best backdrops for a photo session.

The treks also offer an opportunity to be up close and personal with the simple village folk, their lifestyle and culture. You will get an opportunity to witness how they eke out their living without the bare essentials that we normally take for granted. Despite such hardship, children, men and women will greet strangers with smiling faces and they do not mind the occasional visitor passing through the courtyard of their houses. You can be assured of a peaceful, serene and scenic trek that will send you back home with wonderful memories and a rejuvenated mind, body and soul.
