Here we list out the top 10 trekking routes in Nepal, with awesome pictures of each. So, sit back, relax, and enjoy!
If you want beauty and diversity, but shun difficulty, this is the trek for you. Lying to the north of Kathmandu, the Langtang valley borders Tibet. From some high vantage points you might even catch a glimpse of some village in Tibet. The most breathtakingly beautiful parts of this region are Gosainkunda and other high mountain lakes, and the beautiful mountains themselves, especially at sunrise and sunset. The duration of this trek is 7 to 21 days.
This is one of the most difficult treks in Nepal. This is because of the sheer remoteness of the area and the days of walking required. However, the reward is also great. The trekker will get to experience pristine Himalayas and a panoramic view of the Lhotse, Mount Everest and many other peaks from the Makalu base camp at a height of 5000 m above sea level. There are very few villages along this trek. Hence, trekkers need to be self-sufficient and well-equipped. It is highly recommended to hire porters.
