Legions of trekkers are drawn to the Himalaya’s most iconic and accessible hiking, some of the world’s best, with rugged trails to Everest, the Annapurna and beyond. Nowhere else can you trek for days or even weeks against the backdrop of some of the world’s most glorious Himalayan vistas. Here are some of the best pathway for trekking in Nepal that takes you to the base of some of the celebrated mountains.
Everest Base Camp
Topping many people’s travel bucket list and probably the most coveted trek in the world, Everest Base Camp trek takes you through the fascinating Khumbu region and to the base of the world’s highest mountain.
Annapurna Base Camp
Terraced rice paddies, lush rhododendron forests, ethnic Gurung villages and high altitude landscapes with the Annapurna Range in view almost throughout your trek, Annapurna Base Camp never fails to mesmerize you.
Makalu Base Camp
A trek like no other, Makalu Base Camp is a paradise for those seeking a tranquil getaway. One of the most popular trekking destinations among solitary trekkers, this trek offers an exceptional opportunity to explore high-altitude terrains, snow-clad landscapes and ethnic Himalayan lifestyle.
Kanchenjunga Base Camp
Mt. Kanchenjunga is Nepal’s second highest peak and the third highest in the world. Kanchenjunga lies on the eastern border of Nepal providing a great chance to experience remoteness, spectacular mountain scenery, diverse flora and fauna and rich local culture, quite different to those found further west.
Dhaulagiri Base Camp
A strenuous but rewarding trek around the Annapurna region combining the beauty of the range, local cultures, the world’s deepest gorge and several high paths, Dhaulagiri is a wonderful choice for those looking to experience a wide range of mountain climates in the beauty of the Himalayan Region.
It’s strange that kanchenjunga is not talked much when it comes to trek. I’ll not be surprised to see it flying in upcoming years.
