Top 5 Treks In Nepal You Must Do

Posted By : Team/ 810 3

The trekking enthusiasts love to trek in Nepal, and for good reasons!

Nestled between the towering Himalayas and Indo-China border, this country is a little piece of heaven with breathtaking views, temples, monasteries and pristine white waters, as if appearing straight out of the Lonely Planet magazine. Nepal is not just a melting pot of Hindu, Buddhist and Tibetan cultures, but also a bustling tourist destination, particularly Kathmandu (capital) and Pokhara (the trekking hub). Since Nepal is home to 8 out of the 14 tallest mountain peaks in the world, it is every trekker’s dream come true!

 

And while every year, more than 200,000 backpackers pour in Nepal for having the time of their lives, we are recommending top 5 treks in Nepal for adventure junkies.

  1. Everest Base Camp Trek (EBC)

Mount Everest or the Chomolungma, as the locals call it, has a landmark trek located in the Khumbu region beginning from Kathmandu and attracting over 25,000 trekkers every year. One can get spectacular views of Mount Everest and other peaks such as Nuptse and Lhotse from Kala Patthar, which is the highest easily accessible point on the way to EBC, without requiring a mountaineering expertise or a gear.

Best Time: March-May and October-November/Early December

Durations: 12-13 Days 

Altitude:5364m

  1. Annapurna Circuit Trek

One of the longest treks in Nepal, the Annapurna Circuit Trek starts from Pokhara and reaches highest elevation at the Thorong La pass, also the world’s widest pass. The trek covers the region all around the Annapurna range (roughly between 160-200 km), providing some of the most unparalleled views of nature – from the green landscapes and glaciers to the arduous cold mountains.

Best Time: April-May and October-November

Durations: 15-20 Days

Altitude:5400m altitude

  1. Annapurna Base Camp Trek

Popularly known as the Annapurna Sanctuary, the trek begins from Pokhara and is considered the best route to get a spectacular view of local culture coupled with Himalayan adventure. The trek to Annapurna Base Camp is often combined with the Annapurna Circuit Trek and has stop points at Ghorepani and Ghandruk.

Best Time: March-May and September-November

Durations: 7-11 Days

Altitude:4130m

  1. Upper Mustang Trek

One of the rarer and less frequented treks in Nepal, this one begins from Pokhara and ends at Lo Manthang (capital city of Upper Mustang). Since the opening up of this restricted area in 1992, trekkers have slowly started discovering this barren landscape dotted with cliffs, 16th century Tibetan monasteries and cave dwellings. It gives a panoramic view of the world’s deepest gorge between Nilgiri and Dhaulagiri peaks. The only prerequisite here is a minimum 10-day permit and a guide to accompany.

Best Time: March-October

Durations: 10-17 Days

Altitude:4210m

  1. Three Passes Trek

Considered as the ultimate Everest trek, it will take you through three high passes – Renjo La (5360m), Cho La (5420m) and the Kongma La (5535m) and three trekking peaks – Gokyo Ri, Kala Patthar, and Chukkung Ri (if you are feeling more adventurous!). This clockwise and anti-clockwise trail also offers jaw-dropping views of the Gokyo lakes, the Ngozumba Glacier and Mount Everest.

Best Time: March-May and September-November

Durations: 19-20 days 

Altitude:5550m
