Trekking in Nepal

Trekking in Nepal is popular, no doubt. Recent records show that over a million visitors, from all over the world, enter this country every year, mainly, with one objective - Trekking in Nepal.

Firstly, the entire North of the country, from the East to the West, is home to the soaring, mighty Himalayas. Today's world has 14 Himalayan peaks at altitudes more than 8000 meters above sea level. Of these, 8 falls in this region including Mount Everest (8,848 m), the highest on Earth. The others on this list are Kanchenjunga (8,586 m), Lhotse (8,516 m), Makalu (8,485 m), Cho Oyu (8,188 m), Dhaulagiri (8,167 m), Manaslu (8,163 m) and Annapurna (8,091m). Along with these 8, the massifs consist of almost 100 snow-capped elevations that rise above 7000 m as well as other numerous peaks that are equally magnificent. Trekkers remain, witness, that the views of the Himalayas, either from up close or from vantage points on high hills, are simply stunning. 

There is more to this, however. Nepal presents altitude zones that very few countries would be in a position to do so. Starting out from below 100 m from the sea level in the plains, the zones quickly change from tropical to sub-tropical to temperate to subalpine to alpine within a stretch averaging only 200 kilometers from South to North. Trekking in Nepal is, thus, a walk through multiple vegetation zones leading all the way to the foothills of gigantic rocky elevations festooned in ice and snow.

Depending largely on a person's circumstances, preferences, and, thereby, considerations, Trekking in Nepal comes with a number of options, namely, popular, remote, long, and short treks. Popular treks with the highest number of visitors each year include Everest Base Camp Trek, Annapurna Base Camp Trek, and Annapurna Circuit Trek. The likes of Kanchenjunga Circuit, Kanchenjunga North Base Camp, Kanchenjunga South Base Camp Trek, Makalu Base Camp Trek, Manaslu Circuit and Dhaulagiri Circuit Trek, among others, fall in the category of Remote Treks in Nepal. For people with duration considerations, short treks in Nepal, lasting for a day or two to less than a week, and longer variants of two weeks or more are some of the choices. 

One more aspect of relevance to many is the seasons. Based on the popularity index, the best times to visit Nepal are Autumn (September to November) and Spring (March to May)
