WHY NEPAL IS CONSIDERED THE PARADISE FOR TREKKERS

Khumbu Valley Nepal

There was a time when trekking solo in Nepal was forbidden. However, things have changed over the years, and Nepal is now the paradise for the solo trekker as well as for groups.

Experiencing the soaring and mystical snow-covered mountains, rough yet beautiful terrains, jaw-dropping landscapes and raging rivers originating from these soaring peaks have been alluring trekkers from the western world for over 50 years now. Apart from soaring and remote mountains, you can also experience so much more of nature’s blessings— fields, farms, forest, ancient cultures and rich wildlife.

For the trekkers, the land throws open challenges in several forms. You can opt for a moderate trek or the toughest trek, pushing your body and fitness to limits you may not have achieved before. The rewarding part of visiting Nepal is that you will always find yourself rejuvenated, irrespective of the type of walk or trek you choose.

Annapurnas Nepal

Nepal- A House of Trekking Regions


Possibly nowhere else in the world would you find the diverse trekking experiences found in Nepal. This mountain kingdom hosts mainly three trekking regions — the Khumbu valley or the Everest region, the Annapurnas and the Langtang.

For the trekking enthusiast, Nepal treks are the ultimate expedition experience that involve a lot of thrills and rewards.

Every now and then, you can experience something special, almost magical. Trekking in Nepal leaves you with a certain sense of feeling that can’t always be explained. Nepal is both magical and mystical.

Forward Travel - Tea houses Nepal

Adventure Awaits at the Tea Houses


Nepal is known for its welcoming culture, and this is abundant all through the country.

Nepal is full of tea houses.

For obvious reasons, hotels can’t be found at the higher altitudes experienced in Nepal, so tea houses are dotted all through the mountains.

These serve as rest spots during treks, and after a long day on the trail, the sight of a tea house and the thought of a warm tea or hot chocolate is sure to lift the spirits and make you forget about any tiredness you may be feeling in your legs. Basic, yet practical, the tea houses are your sanctuary against the elements and provide the body with a well-earned night’s rest.

Forward Travel - Langtang Trek Nepal

Explore New Trekking Spots


Nepal is best experienced in the autumn and spring, (Sept – Nov; Feb – Apr). Nepal has a monsoon season, so if trekking during May to Aug, the skies are not clear, so the jaw-dropping views won’t be available.

Nepal has some famous routes to trek, and there will always be trekkers wanting to do this, but this small country is far from conquered, and if you are a true adventurer, there is plenty yet to be discovered.

Pick a bearing on your compass and start walking. You never know what you might discover.

Forward Travel - Rara Lake Nepal

Discover the Serene, Pristine Lakes


Nepal is known for having some of the deepest and the largest fresh water lakes.

If you are trekking in western Nepal, then Rara Lake is the must visit spot.

Western Nepal is relatively untouched by tourists yet, but it is slowly getting exposed.

If you’re looking to experience the real Nepal with no western influence, western Nepal should be in your sights. With stunning scenery and untouched cultures, it will not fail to astound you.

Trekking in Nepal

Annapurna and Langtang


Nepal has a bounty to offer trekkers. For the person looking for more of a cultural experience as opposed to just trekking, visiting the different regions of Annapurna and Langtang will provide this.

Walking through small villages with terraced gardens to rhododendron forests, the scenery and experience will be very different, but not less rewarding than trekking the Everest region.

Forward Travel - Everest Base Camp Trekking

Everest Base Camp Trekking


The Everest region is one of the most remote areas and is one of the toughest sites for trekking in the world. For most people trekking, the Everest region is going to be a once in a lifetime experience.

The experienced trekkers from Forward Travel provide all the training and instruction to ensure that the Everest base camp trekking remains the safest yet a thrilling experience. Make no mistake though, trekking the Everest region takes careful planning.

Conclusion


Nepal is, undoubtedly, the country where trekking was born. With so many summits and valleys to explore, the country is the perfect spot for all adventure seekers. Every step takes you closer to something special. Some people say that you should travel to Nepal and lose yourself in the mountains, but we at Forward Travel feel that’s not true. You should go to Nepal and find yourself amongst the mountains.
