Trekking is an active holiday in Nepal. It is the home to network of trails also called the Great Himalaya Trails, an extensive trail system that covers from Humla and Darchula in the far west to Kanchenjunga in the east. The diversity of trekking in Nepal cannot be found in any other region in the world.
In fact, the lowest point in Nepal is 60m above sea-level in Jhapa district of Terai region while the highest point is Mount Everest, 8,848 m above sea level, the two points are, in a straight line, only 200 kilometers apart.
The majority of visitors come to Nepal either via Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu or over several borders. You can acquire your trek permits and other documentation while you are in Kathmandu. These documents will be checked along the trek route .
For those with little time to spend in Nepal there are half-day hikes from Kathmandu to witness breathtaking Himalayan views otherwise trek for weeks over stunning challenging mountain passes.
Up to the mid-1960s only a few trekkers had generally visited Nepal. Trekking in Nepal today is completely different to that of the 1960s. In all the main trekking areas, the National Parks and Conservation Areas lodges have been established where trekkers can find accommodation, food and meet other trekkers and locals along the way.
The majority of the trails are well maintained and in many cases are signposted. The lodges are well appointed and have facilities for charging batteries and the larger villages often have email facilities.
The length, the difficulty, and timing of the treks vary greatly and to add to that once outside of the main trek areas, transport becomes challenging and often involves at least two journeys made on domestic scheduled flights.
The three main trekking areas and therefore the most easily accessible are the Annapurna, Everest, Langtang and the Manaslu regions. Great Himalaya Trails has extensive information on other trekking regions, which are accessible by domestic flights, such as Kanchenjunga, Makalu, Dolpo, and the Far West. Several days of trekking is required to reach the higher mountain areas from the local centers of population and administration.
