Top 5 Trekking Spots In Nepal

The Trekker’s Heaven.

Sandwiched between southern side of Tibet and north-western part of India, Nepal is, in every way, a trekker’s paradise. The cold Himalayan air, the crisp winds and the immensely soothing scenic routes make for unforgettable experiences. Nepal is undoubtedly a favorite of trekkers, both local and international. There is so much to choose from that it can get overwhelming, if you do not put in a little personal research before embarking on your rapturous trip. Thamel - near Kathmandu, is the busiest place for obtaining trekking gear and information. The hordes of eager trekkers might take you by surprise as you explore the region in preparation for your own quest.
The Famous Five Destinations:
With over a dozen trekking spots to choose from, it can be both confusing as well as enthralling while making your choice for this special rendezvous with nature. Choosing from the most popular to secluded routes, the top five trails are compiled below:

1. The Langtang Trek

Situated towards the northern side, the Langtang region is excellent for a 7-8 day trek or even a 14 day one. Since it starts near Kathmandu, it is also easier to gear up on supplies. Close to Tibet, you’ll be flooded with Tibetan culture as you pass monasteries, villages and stay in guesthouses or lodges. Beguile yourself atop the Tserko Peak (4,984 m) and soak in the elation of a mighty conqueror! The best seasons for this route are March-May and October-January.Langtang classic trekking

2. Everest Base Camp

Staring at the world’s highest peak, Mt. Everest (8,848 m), from atop Kala Patthar (5,600 m), perhaps only a few other experiences could come close to the priceless feeling of triumph and contentment. The trek can be from 14 days to as long as 25 days. For the rigorous trekker, this trip is a must. Visiting the Gokyo Lakes is highly recommended. The majestic ranges and phenomenal scenery along with the rich Sherpa culture puts this on top of your trekking list.

3. The Annapurna Circuit

Towards western Nepal, the Annapurna Circuit is a major trek route and encompasses mountains and glaciers within the Annapurna conservation area. Starting from Nepal’s third largest city, Pokhara, this trek can take from 14-20 days. While the abundance of teahouses make this a more comfortable trek than others, the construction of roads take away some of the charm of wild trekking. Nevertheless, it has good terrain and accounts for an enjoyable experience. A big plus for this trek is you get to cross the world’s widest pass- the Thorong La Pass (5,416 m). The varied altitude- 760 m to 5,416 m provides a diverse experience.

4. The Annapurna 


Different from the Annapurna Circuit, this route is more rigorous and can be arduous for the non-acclimatized trekker. Taking about 10 days, this is rewarding trek for a short trekking duration. Starting from Pokhara and ending at the base camp (4,157 m) this trek will bring you face-to-face with the world’s most treacherous mountain to climb, the Annapurna (8, 091 m). There is also a memorial to Anatoli Boukreev, who died in an avalanche on the peak in 1997, in the base camp of  Annapurna .

5. Mt. Kanchenjunga Circuit

In contrast to the other treks, this one is remote and less travelled. You can explore one of the most rural regions of the world in this long and hard trek. However, it is not recommended for winter trekking, and only the fittest trekkers are advised to take up this grueling adventure. Facilities are basic and it is advised to plan the trip at least 20 days in advance. One can relish marvelous views of Mt. Kanchenjunga and Mt. Makalu, the 3rd and 5th highest peaks, respectively, on the globe from the base camp.

Besides the above mentioned treks, other highly recommended treks include the Makalu base camp, the Manaslu trek, the Upper Mustang trek and the Poonhill trek.
Be Responsible.
Avoid littering and pick up any empty bottles or disposable wares, as well as other wares. It can be of immense relief to plan days, or even months in advance, and to only contact proper authorities who are permitted to organize the treks. You need to be in optimum shape to fully enjoy the experience in addition to avoiding any hardship and sickness on the way. It is highly advised to pack antibiotics and a well-stocked medical kit with adequate supplies. While you may be tempted to over-pack, it is best if you carry only the necessary equipment and clothing. Your pack should also include portable water purifiers. Make sure to have the right documents to be presented at every checkpoint, as this can save you from a lot of needless headache and trouble.
