What are the most popular treks in the Himalayas?

Take on Everest Base Camp

For many outdoor enthusiasts, reaching Everest Base Camp is the ultimate trekking goal. The renowned Everest Base Camp trail in Nepal presents a challenging ascent, but it remains within reach for proficient hikers. With each step, trekkers immerse themselves in the mesmerising beauty of the region, passing through charming Sherpa villages, crossing suspension bridges over rushing rivers, and ascending to higher altitudes that offer panoramic views that leave a lasting imprint. The sight from Base Camp, overlooking the Khumbu Icefall with its striking ice seracs, is undeniably awe-inspiring. Additionally, from Kala Patthar, a splendid view of Everest's summit awaits.

Complete the Annapurna Circuit 

The Annapurna Circuit trek includes the chance to experience the best of Nepal's landscapes, from the hot and humid farmland in the lower valley of the Marsyangdi and around Pokhara, to the high alpine environment and spectacular mountain scenery above Manang on the north side of the Annapurnas. If you want to experience a little bit of everything Nepal has to offer, this is perhaps the best trek to set off on, but it’s certainly no easy feat.

Ideas for you next trekking holiday in the Nepalese Himalayas

For many first-timers, it’s all about immersing yourself in the local culture, enjoying the many tea houses and trekking in the Everest region on our Everest Base Camp Trek. Or, visiting the Annapurna regions, where you can take on the Annapurna Circuit Trek or the Annapurna Sanctuary Trek. However, Nepal has much more to offer. After many travellers first time trekking in Nepal they are itching to go back as soon as possible. Here are some ideas for your next trekking holiday in Nepal.


Langtang Valley


 
 








Langtang Valley should be on your list for your next trekking holiday in Nepal for several compelling reasons. First, it offers a more serene and less crowded trekking experience compared to some other popular routes, allowing you to immerse yourself in the natural beauty and tranquility of the region. Second, the Langtang region is known for its stunning landscapes, from lush forests to alpine meadows and breathtaking mountain views. Additionally, you'll have the opportunity to interact with the warm and hospitable Tamang and Sherpa communities, experiencing their unique culture and traditions. Finally, the relatively shorter duration of the Langtang Valley trek makes it a convenient choice for those with limited time but a desire to explore the Himalayas and enjoy a memorable trekking adventure in Nepal.


Ganesh Himal

This trek takes you through pristine forests, charming villages, and terraced fields, offering a glimpse into the authentic rural life of the region. You'll be rewarded with panoramic views of the Ganesh Himal range and other neighboring peaks, providing stunning photo opportunities. The relatively lower altitude of this trek makes it accessible to a wide range of trekkers, and the chance to interact with the warm and hospitable local communities adds cultural richness to your journey. For those seeking a quieter and less-crowded trekking experience, the Ganesh Himal trek is an excellent choice.


Kangchenjunga Trek

Embarking on the Kangchenjunga Trek in Nepal promises an adventure of a lifetime. This trek offers a unique opportunity to explore the remote and less-travelled eastern region of Nepal, where the pristine wilderness remains largely untouched. Kangchenjunga, the world's third-highest peak, serves as a majestic backdrop throughout the journey.


Mera Peak

Embarking on the Mera Peak Trek in Nepal offers an exhilarating adventure for trekkers seeking a challenging yet rewarding experience. As Nepal's highest trekking peak, Mera Peak stands at 6476 metres and provides stunning panoramic views of some of the world's highest mountains, including Everest, Lhotse, and Makalu. This trek combines the thrill of ascending a Himalayan peak with the beauty of trekking through lush forests, pristine valleys, and Sherpa villages, allowing trekkers to immerse themselves in the rich culture and natural beauty of the Solu-Khumbu region.
