Trekking in Nepal
  • I want to know more about trekking in Nepal. I've heard rave reviews about both the Annapurna circuit and the Everest Base Camp route. Can anyone who has done these treks tell me a little more about them.
    How fit do you need to be?
    Is one better than the other?
    Do I need a tour guide or can I hire a porter and do it myself?
    How much will it cost to hire a porter?
    I've heard that the Maoists sometimes stop you along the route and demand 'tolls' is this becoming a problem or is it a rare occurrence?
    When is the best time of year to go trekking in Nepal?

  • Annemarie,

    Interesting, As you know if you are starting 10-12 days outdoor activities is not easy and i don't think so it will be fully safety.So that i wanna suggest you to have at list high trained guide........as well.

    Also for the trekking on ABC & EBC if you are physically fit and able to walk, there wouldn't be any problem.And Regards Maoists revaluation, we had but now it is over..we don't have to worries about it, They are handling Government in Nepal.

    For the Best Season for Trekking in Nepal..... Autumn (September to End of November) And Spring (March to End of May) will be the Great time.

  • Nepal has some of the best trekking in the world, to and around several of the world's highest mountains, including Mount Everest. It is amongst the most visited country by trekkers, as Nepal tourism industry is well prepared to facilitate all manner of trekking styles and destinations. Trekking is one of the best ways to experience the wild and lofty places, diverse cultural heritages and varied geographic conditions of Nepal.
    Nepal's trekking route passes through the lush green forests of rhododendron, bamboo, oak, different landscapes, ice falls, glaciers, high altitude, frozen lakes and breathtaking snow caped mountains. To add to this, you get to experience the diverse culture and lifestyle of Nepalese people varying through different regions. Thus, trekking in Nepal is not making it to the mountains; it's about experiencing nature, variety of culture, festivals and most importantly exploring the uncharted places.
