It can take place in the most remote areas with only a few people or can be a “joint venture” shared with the locals, with plenty of teahouses and facilities along the way. There are suitable treks for the super-fit and for those who prefer a gentler and easier experience. The Himalayas are filled with treks for everyone!Nepal Himalayas offers excellent trekking options to visitors from the easy walking excursions to the strenuous climb of the snowy peaks. The most rewarding way to experience Nepal’s natural embellishment and cultural assortment is to walk through the length, breadth and the altitudes of the country.
