Why Treks in Nepal?
Why do most lovers of the wild prefer Trekking in Nepal?
Trekking is for anyone who enjoys walking amongst nature. Most adventure seekers prefer trekking in Nepal because it’s a scenic walk along mountain trails absorbing all the sights and sounds of a foreign land. It does not require you to cling to sheer cliff walls with the mountain goats. You do not need to be a "super fit being". You only need the spirit for adventure; & that’s what trekkers find in Nepal more than anywhere else. Many trekkers prefer to take a guide and a porter to enhance the enjoyment of their trip.
A typical trek-day starts around 6 a.m. with a cup of tea/coffee. After packing your duffel bag and daypack, breakfast will be served. The day's trek starts around 7.30 a.m. Porters carry all luggage and equipment. All you need to carry in your daypack are personal items like a water bottle, rain/wind jacket, camera and any other small items you may need on the trail.
The morning's walk to the lunch spot takes about three hours. Around mid-day we usually stop for a simple hot meal at a teahouse. After a three to four hour afternoon hike, the nights lodging is usually reached between 3-4 p.m. In the late afternoon and evening you can relax, wash, read or take a walk in the nearby woods. The evening meal is served between 6 to 8 p.m. After dinner, the guide generally briefs members on the program of the following day.
On beaten trails or virgin tracks, Nepal is a trekker's paradise. The organic rhythm of foot travel is a wonderful way to explore and make meaningful contact with the country. Trekking usually consists of a series of ascents and descents walking 5 to 7 hours (9 to 14 km per day on average with a guide, cook and porters and on some occasion’s pack animals.
Trekkers rely on local staff for path finding and an introduction to the local people, culture, religion, and lifestyle. Trekking in Nepal is special because the route will often pass through forests of rhododendron, bamboo, oak, and hemlock, visiting one or two villages each day. Rivers are crossed on log passages or suspension bridges. The Himalayas of Nepal are considered to be the most popular trekking regions anywhere in the world. It’s not unusual to cross snowfields in the morning and bathe in sub-tropical streams in the afternoon. For the most part, trekking routes are well traveled by local people, but remain unmarked without sign posts.
