Publishded: 2022-12-25 | Total Views: 575

Nepal is one of the naturally blessed countries for a trek which is surrounded by mountains. Most of the higher mountains are located in Nepal, so it is known as the country of the mountain. Nepal has various landscapes, forests, and many small to big rivers. Here you can have lifetime adventures and memorable moments.


Here you can find many areas with different measurements with different difficulties. Some are small up to altitudes of around 3,500m. These are usually classic treks that are not highly demanding for anyone with a reasonable/healthy fitness level. This trek can enjoy by all age groups. Mostly up to 4,500m treks are a little more difficult than the small ones. There is some trek that goes higher and is classified as Moderate. Such as the classic Annapurna Circuit. Mostly difficult to strenuous is up to 5,500m, which are generally non-classic treks. It takes you rougher, terrains, trails, and facilities. For these treks, one needs to be fit and have solid prior experience in Mountain walking. Over 5,500m are almost exploratory in terms of the terrain and trails. These are only for the hardcore initiated.


The primary decision to make is whether you want to go a tent trek or a teahouse trek. Both treks have their own difficulties and facilities, making your journey enjoyable and memorable.

A teahouse or lodge trek means that you stay and eat at the lodge along with the trekkers. Numerous lodges cater to Western tourists. The most comfortable atmosphere can also mean real overcrowding and kitchen delays.

Every trek depends on how far away from it all you want to get. How ready you are and how many amenities you want to give up in exchange.


There are two kinds of routes Classic and Non-classic. Classic routes are extremely well-traveled whether you use them or take your own tent; there are lodges and villages all along the way here and a core local population for whom trekkers are no surprises. Non-classic routes involve going off the beaten track. On this trip, you walk through a much more remote country. The villages will not have tourist-standard accommodation or anything but the best local food. Many Non-classic routes are especially wild west looking to trek. These routes are essential for all your suppliers, tents, etc.

You will always feel the best journey with many adventures and magnificent moments with nature. Every day you can see god's unique creation, explore nature's beauty, and learn new things.
