Picking The Right Nepalese Peak

Nepal is one of our most popular destinations, and it is a true treasure of mesmerizing, panoramic scenery with some of the most breathtaking trekking routes in the world. Of course, it is home to some of the world’s most awe-inspiring peaks, and you’ll conquer some of the most famous terrain should you make this stunning landscape your adventure holiday destination with us, KE Adventure. 

When it comes to choosing the right peak for your trekking adventure in Nepal, there’s a few things to consider. Our team of experts have provided their unrivalled insights into a selection of our holidays involving some momentous mountains across Nepal, helping you choose an excursion that ticks every box.



Experience Everest First Hand 


It’s undoubtedly one of the most striking natural expanses in the world, home to the highest summit on the globe, but you’ll need to see it first hand to get a real gauge of the impact that it has. 

If it’s unlimited, diverse exploration you’re looking for, then our Everest base camp trek could well be the ideal choice. We love this holiday for the sheer scale of activity and terrain that it covers, all focused around this ethereal part of Nepal where the world beyond is made to feel small. The ‘Everest trail’ is certainly one of the most prolific routes, and we make sure to take you from one exhilarating viewpoint to the next. 

You’ll spend one night on your trip at 4000m above sea level, and you’ll be trekking around and beyond 5000m above sea level. You’ll progress from the starting point in Kathmandu, arriving then in Lukla and trekking to Phakding, passing the serene Dudh Kosi River. From here you’ll see Namche Bazaar, Gorak Shep, the Sherpa capital and more. 

While we cover a lot of ground, there’s no difficult or sustained trekking, making it accessible for even those with moderate walking experience. Hiking at an altitude can be demanding though, so it is best to factor this into your decision on whether this is the adventure for you. If you want to find out more on trekking at such altitudes, we’ve always got a specialist on hand if you would like to speak to us before you book your mountain trekking holiday to Nepal. What we can guarantee is the rewarding feeling of hiking to Everest base camp.



Annapurna Circuit Trek 

Alternatively, why not consider taking on the tranquility and beauty of the Annapurna base camp trek, which includes an ascent up Poon Hill for a truly blissful sun rise view, and beyond, or if you have more time, take on the full Annapurna circuit trek. The latter has some slightly more challenging elements and this holiday is best recommended to those with some decent experience in trekking, as you’ll advance over the Thorung La (5146m above sea level), the highest point of the Annapurna Circuit

The mountain massif of the Annapurnas is a unique setting, with snow tipped peaks carving out a prominent skyline over the Nepalese region. Thorung La is a challenge highly regarded by mountain walkers all over the world, and here you are fully immersed in the Annapurna Sanctuary trek, where nature becomes decorative and vibrant. 

Nature carves this route out for us to follow, passing the Marsyangdi River, then tumbling down through the Kali Gandaki Valley, up Poon Hill where your landscape transitions into luscious, green farmland. If you’re looking for mainly sustained trekking with a few elements of challenge, the Annapurna Circuit Trek could be perfect. 

The route is straightforward to follow for the most part, and you’ll be guided through each phase by an expert KE trip leader who will be a local native and can offer unbeatable insight. Of course, elevation will be involved, and walking at around 3000m can prove difficult depending on your trekking experience, but even for those accustomed to this it can be testing. We plan our itineraries to acclimatise our holiday makers for the challenges the treks may entail, so you will be equipped for what is ahead on your journey through the Annapurna circuit!



Take on Mera 

You’ll see the world from a new, exciting perspective when you reach the Mera peak, one of Nepal’s most prominent mountains surrounded by 5 of the world’s 8000m peaks. This is the ultimate trek for those craving once in a lifetime views, as Mera certainly boasts the most unforgettable natural scenery at the summit. Look down onto the tumbling trek route, where you pass through the Thaksindo La, the Hinku Valley and Dig Glacier. 

You’ll venture across a variety of terrain, from easy snow slopes on Mera peak, to following the ragged rivers and plunging down into the Hongu Valley. It’s a truly sublime route to take, and you’ll be rewarded with an unrivalled viewpoint over this diverse region of Nepal. 

Emerge into the culture of the area as you pass through settlements and local farmland, our respective route aims to provide you with an authentic taste of life in this unspoiled, off grid location. The forest and ‘Middle Hills’ of Nepal take you through tiny villages, where the local Sherpa community enjoy a life very different to that of us in the West. 

From Thaksindo, to Gotay and skills training at Ghare, you’ll be exposed to some of the most serene, rugged terrain, and this particular trek involves quite a lot of different ground to tackle. The village trails involve high-sided valleys, then onto passes of 3000m, with a mixture of steep ascents and descents along the way. The climbing on Mera peak involves an experienced level of, as navigating it can prove to be quite a technical process. 

Overall, we recommend our Mera peak trek for experienced walkers, though you’ll have access to unlimited support along the way.
