Trekking Holidays in Nepal - A Breathtaking Adventure


Draped along the greatest heights of the Himalaya, Nepal is a land of sublime scenery, time-worn temples, and some of the best known walking trails on earth. It may be a poor country, but it is rich in scenic splendour and cultural treasures. It is the kind of country that lingers long after you leave it, which is why so many travellers are drawn back to Nepal, armed the second time around with a greater appreciation of its natural and cultural complexity. Whether you get your kicks from some of the world’s premier white-water rafting, kayaking and mountain biking, taking the option to teach in Nepal for the experience of a lifetime or from seeing a tiger or rhino from atop an elephant in Chitwan National Park, Nepal is destined to make a big impression on you. Many people are drawn to this magical place by the promise of adventure, but leave equally bewitched by the friendliness of the local Nepali people and their unbelievably rich and diverse culture.

Since Nepal opened its frontiers to foreign visitors in the fifties, it has been the epicentre of Himalayan adventure activities. Climbing and trekking holidays have become highly sought after adventure sports throughout the world soon after the advent of tourism culture. Trekking in Nepal is often referred to as walking through paradise on earth, as you experience standing before the entire world as a vivid kaleidoscope of picturesque landscapes, exotic wildlife, arid high-altitude meadows, magnificent mountains, incredible travel destinations, unique cultures, festivals, ancient heritage, pristine backwaters and exotic cuisine, it is undoubtedly any travellers delight.

Covering the majority of Nepal and meaning literally ‘abode of snow’, the Himalaya contains more than 250 peaks. Not just in Nepal but around the world, the most famous one is Mount Everest. To conquer this magnificent peak has been a long term obsession for adventurous travellers, but the beauty is that no matter what your experience as trekking goes, there is a route suitable for all levels of ability, so anyone and everyone is able to experience the journey.

There are camping options, or staying in a teahouse or comfortable lodge, all whilst enjoying the traditional hospitality of the Sherpa people and making your own personal contribution to the local community. There are endless options for the type of adventure you want to discover in Nepal, whether it be visiting all the significant religious places in Nepal to learn about Buddhism and Hinduism, or the opportunity to live in a small community and help families in need or participate in small scale projects. Or retrace the footsteps of the Prince of Wales on an easier trek in the Annapurna region which is the perfect introduction for beginners taking you through one of the most beautiful regions.

Nepal is a unique trekking destination because of its fascinating combination of natural charm and cultural riches. It is a magnificent holiday, your journey is sure to be memorable, enjoyable and one of the most exciting in your lifetime which you will cherish forever.
