TREKKING IN THE ANNAPURNA / EVEREST / HELAMBU-LANGTANG

Annapurna, Langtang-Helambu, Everest are three most popular and most visited regions in Nepal. Annapurna, Everest, and Langtang-Helambu this three regions constitute the most popular trekking areas of Nepal accommodating more than 90% of the overall all trekkers. These regions combine the multiple advantages of being easily accessible; present a variety of spectacular scenery and offer a multitude of trekking routes with good infrastructure as well as off-the-beaten track destinations. It is possible to plan a trek as short as a few days and as long as 5 weeks . The variety of trekking routes suits anyone from the amateur to experienced trekkers.

TREKKING IN CENTRAL HIMALAYAS

The Langtang/Helambu region, already covered in the above section, is the main trekking destinations in the area. Besides, the Central Himalayas offer other alternative and off-the-beaten track trekking possibilities. Located in the heartland of Nepal, in the historic land of Gorkha, the Manaslu and Ganesh Himal are two mountainous massifs with trekking routes going through a range of fantastic scenery. Eastward, the region of Rolwaling is another hardly visited area.

TREKKING IN THE MID-FAR WEST REGION – THE WILD WEST

The Mid and Far West regions of Nepal cover the largest area of Nepal. This area receives much less than rainfall than the central and eastern parts of Nepal and its soil is less fertile. Economically, this is the less developed region of Nepal which lacks of all basic infrastructures. There is acute food scarcity and the economic and social conditions of the majority of the people are extremely precarious. The main trekking destinations in this area are the region around Rara lake, Humla and the Khaptad national Park.

TREKKING IN THE TRANS-HIMALAYAN – TRULY UNIQUE AND MAGIC EXPERIENCE OF ANCIENT FORBIDDEN AND MYTHICAL PLACES

The Trans-Himalayan region is located in the rain shadow of the main Himalayan ranges with a climate and landscape similar to the Tibetan plateau. This is a region of spectacular and extreme beauty where are located the most remote and scarcely inhabited valleys of Nepal. Most of these valleys were totally closed to foreigners until recently. It is only in the beginning of the 1990s that they were opened to foreign visitors. However, they see only a very limited amount of foreign visitors as trekking in these areas remain relatively expensive due to the significant fees levied by the Government of Nepal and the logistical arrangements required. Trekking in the ancient forbidden Himalayan kingdoms of the Upper Mustang or in the unfrequented ancestral land of Dolpo thus remains a unique and exclusive experience of feeling into a totally different world. This is a world that has retained their atmosphere of forbidden land, mythical kingdom and magical landscapes.

TREKKING IN THE EASTERN REGION – MAKALU / KANCHANJUNGA

The hills of the Eastern region are the original homeland of the Kiranti folk whose sub-division are the Rai and Limbu. It is a region that enjoys abundant rainfalls and fertile soil. The water is plenty supporting lush vegetation and variety of crops. The steep-banked Arun and Tamur rivers and their tributaries have shaped deep and narrow valleys whose waters join at the exit of the last mountain barriers to collect in the Koshi Tappu reservoir and wetland. Scattered human settlements and picturesque old bazaars cling to steep mountain slopes and ridges. The remote and upper north valleys of Olangchung, Thudam and Topke Gola bordering Tibet are inhabited by distinct and small ethnic groups. The two main trekking destinations are the Makalu and Kanchanjunga areas.
