It’s no more a hidden fact that Nepal is a trekker’s paradise. Why wouldn’t it be, after all it’s the Land of Superlatives! Most of the highest mountains on Earth including the highest one Everest, the deepest gorge Kali Gandaki Gorge, the highest navigable pass Thorang-La, the highest Lake Tilicho are just a few of the wonders that Nepal has. However, dramatic landscape is not the only highlight of Nepal. Nepal is also a land of unbelievable natural beauty and rich cultural heritage. So, since Nepal opened its door to the world in 1950s, it has been welcoming quite an impressive portion of trekkers and wilderness fanatics to its iconic trekking regions. Let’s take a peek on top 5 trekking regions of Nepal.
1. Everest Region
Why Everest Region is the most favored trekking destination is quite self explanatory. However the region is not just the home of Everest! The Region, also known as Khumbu region, nestles an endless range of many other Himalayan giants, rich biodiversity of Sagarmatha National Park, the UNESCO World Heritage Site and unique Sherpa culture. In addition to that, the trail is quite well facilitated with comfortable local amenities, which gives the mountain lovers one more reason to visit the land of Everest.
2. Annapurna Region
When it comes to beauty and diversity, no other places in the world can beat Annapurna region. Rewarding views of some of the highest peaks along the Annapurna massif, diverse landscapes from subtropical to alpine to desertic rain shadow, deep gorges, challenging passes and time tested civilizations, the region is simply unbelievable. And as a cherry on top, the region also offers some of the easiest trekking options! No surprise, the region has been a mecca for trekkers all the time!
3. Manaslu Region
Manaslu Region is comparatively less facilitated than Everest and Annapurna region. However, the fact hasn’t made people less enthusiastic about the region. In fact, those who want to avoid butt-brushing crowd during peak seasons choose Manaslu area for more solitude and pristine experience. And they also get a chance of tête-à-tête with Mt. Manaslu, world’s eighth highest mountain.
4. Langtang Region
Langtang Region is a mere 19km from the Kathmandu Valley- just a stone’s throw away! And still it has all the highlights of the Himalaya – snow-capped peaks, glaciers (actually it’s called the Valley of Glaciers), dramatic hills, freezing lakes, wide pasturelands, highland settlements, and the culture that takes you back in time. If you want the Himalayan experience in shorter timeframe, Langtang is for you. Langtang was heavily devastated by earthquake in 2015 but it’s already well on its way.
5. Kanchanjunga Region
So, finally here comes Kanchanjunga Region, the home of Mt Kanchanjunga, the third highest peak in the world. If we say, it’s a beautiful place, it would be a sheer understatement. The skyline which is always dominated by mighty mountains, wooded areas, roaring rivers, quaint villages- Kanchanjunga is sure to turn you into a mystic, maybe “Into the Wild” star of course without the bus episode!
Apr 2023 I had an incredible experience trekking to Everest Base Camp with Explore Himalaya. Our guides were absolutely amazing. They provided us with exceptional support and guidance throughout the journey. The porters deserve special recognition too for their hard work and dedication. The entire journey was filled with breathtaking views and unforgettable experiences. From the start until the conclusion , every moment was filled with awe and wonder. I highly recommend Explore Himalaya for anyone seeking an unforgettable trekking experience in the Himalayas. Thank you to all the the staff, for making our journey truly exceptional!
13 Day Manaslu Circuit Trek Nov 2018 We have just returned to Kathmandu after a wonderful trek around the Manaslu circuit, starting in Soti Khola and finishing in Jaget. The trek and transport out and back to Kathmandu were very well organized. Our guide, Bharet Rana was excellent, arranging our tea-house accomodation and meals each day, without hitch. He was always good humoured and provided an interesting commentary on sights along the way.
Our Everest Base Camp trek was a wonderful and memorable one. Everything was very well organised. Thank you Explore Himalaya and the staffs for such an excellent service. We were taken care of from the moment we landed in Ktm till the day we left. The Guides and the Porters team of Explore Himalaya are very friendly and helpful. They took care of every little things during our trek. Some walked faster, some slowly and few could not but No one was left behind. They walk with your pace and motivates you until you get up. Anuj Pandey, MD of Explore Himalaya was available 24 hours a day when anybody was in need, he even flew to Namche to check if everything was going well and if everybody was doing good. The Guides Bibek Pandey, Bhuwan Tamang and Ram Rajbhandari along with their 5 Porters were the main pillars who made our mission accomplished. I'd highly recommend anybody who wants to travel to Nepal to contact Explore Himalaya and get themselves spoilt and entertained with their excellent service.
