Trekking Information

Nepal is a great place to go hiking. Mountaineers and explorers have been drawn to Nepal for the past 100 years. Villages in the mountains haven’t changed in hundreds of years. Trekking shows how different Nepal is in terms of culture, history, and geography. Here, different cultures and ethnicities are welcome in settlements. The Nepalese Himalayas’ beauty comes from the mountains and the area around them. Nepal has nice people, beautiful villages, and many different cultures and traditions. Trekking is the only way to understand the culture and landscapes fully.

Trekking in Nepal is easier than trekking in other places. Outside of Kathmandu, there is a whole new world. Moreover, you can see an interesting culture on foot. It’s worth the effort. People can learn about culture and nature by walking on old paths. So, grow! Every step follows 50-year-old trails by Edmund Hillary, Tenzing Norgay, and other Himalayan explorers. Some places are hidden from outsiders so that you could be a hundred years in the past. We are going! Trekking isn’t mountain climbing. Trekking can be peaceful, but you’ll spend most of your time higher than the highest.

In addition, trekking brings together nature and culture. The Dhaulagiri Circuit, which covers Mount Everest, Langtang, Annapurna, Kanchanjanga, Makalu, Gaurishankar, and certain restricted places, takes you through jungles, hills, and mountains in less than 130 km, where you can meet people from many different cultures.

For Safety:

You need a guide and a porter for safe and fun travel in Nepal. A guide can describe Nepalese society, culture, and nature. You can learn interesting and useful things from him. The porter will help you relax by carrying some of your bags. You also help Nepalese people get jobs since many depend on this sector.

Himalayan Leaders is a fully registered trekking company that offers trekking to Nepal, India, Bhutan, and Tibet, by choice, to the most remote regions or along with regular trails. We organize a qualified full (porter, cook, guide) team and lodging in tea houses or camping for individuals and groups. Trekking in Nepal can last from as few as 2 days to as long as 2 months. There are adventurous trails for the die-hards and those of you who prefer a more gentle ramble. So do not think the Himalayas are only suitable for the Indiana Jones-like travelers, hard and rugged, many, many other trails fit less experienced or more cultural oriented trekkers!
