Trekking in Nepal
Walking holidays in the Everest, Annapurna, and other regions of Nepal
Inhabited by friendly ethnic peoples, the remote settlements scattered across Nepal's rugged mountains are to this day connected only by foot-trails. Nepal naturally offers a wide choice of excellent treks – with the backdrop of the highest mountains on Earth.
A trekking holiday in Nepal is indeed an inspirational break from the mundane, the closest thing to a journey in Shangri La. You venture into remote mountain areas dwarfed by Himalayan giants and encounter hardy ethnic peoples whose way of life has changed little over the centuries. Leaving behind the trappings of modern civilization, you settle into the scenic grandeur, the exotic cultures, and the lush flora and fauna.
We offer a fine selection of Nepal treks, full-service camping as well as lodge-based, in the Annapurna, Everest, Langtang, Dolpo, and Mustang regions. Our camping treks mostlly keep off the beaten trails and venture into remote areas. Our lodge trek routes are chosen to offer the best of the main trekking trails, in areas where lodges offer a superior alternative to camping. Each one of our Nepal trekking holidays is an outstanding adventure that almost certainly will draw you back to the magical mountains of this Himalayan kingdom for more.
Spectacular mountain scenery, a mosaic of friendly ethnic peoples, and striking geographic diversity make the Annapurna region the most popular trekking destination in Nepal. The topographical diversity allows a wide range of treks of varying difficulty, from easy foothill hikes to challenging high-altitude treks & climbing expeditions.
Known as Sagarmatha in Nepal and Chomolungma in Tibet, Mt. Everest, the highest point on the planet, captures our imagination like few other places. Trekking in Nepal's Everest region is very popular and has a lot to offer, from the interesting inhabitants – the Sherpas – and their fascinating Buddhist culture to Himalayan giants including five of the world's ten highest peaks.
From only 20 mi. / 32 km north of Kathmandu, the Langtang National Park stretches 1,710 sq. km. to the Himalayan border with Tibet, and is Nepal’s second largest national park. The glaciated valley of Langtang separates the Langtang Himal of the main Himalayan range from the lesser 16,500'/ 5,000m summits of the Gosainkund Lekh to the south, and offers an excellent alternative Nepal trek.
The trans-Himalayan enclaves of Dolpo, Mustang, and the Manang/ Muktinath valley are ideal Nepal trekking destinations in the Monsoon -- the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Himal ranges effectively block the rain from reaching this Tibet-like arid, semi-desert bio tope. Summer is the best time to visit: Nature is at her most resplendent, rural activity is at its peak, and this season also has the greatest concentration of festivals. Our Monsoon Nepal trekking holidays are refreshing summer adventures with a cultural focus.

Probably the best short lodge trek in Nepal, this makes a loop through the middle hills south of the Annapurna Himal range.
The "easiest" of our Everest treks offers the essence of the Khumbu region with spectacular views of Everest and other Himalayan giants.
Taking you into pristine Himalayan wilderness amidst dramatic views of the Annapurna & Dhaulagiri Himal, this is probably the best medium-length wilderness trek in Nepal.
