Nepal is a magical land packed with the beautiful and rugged hills, grand mountains, virgin forests, isolated villages and many more. Kandoo Adventures treks offer high altitude treks and adventure travels, among them the best trekking regions in Nepal. Some of the best trekking regions in Nepal are:
1. Everest Base Camp Trek
The Everest base camp trek is one of the best treks in Nepal and is the best option for anyone looking to explore the Sherpa villages and to get close up views of the world’s highest mountains. The trail offers beautiful forests, glacial moraines, and foothills, which provide a fantastic trekking experience. In addition to going face to face with Mt. Everest, you will also see other majestic peaks, such as Makalu, Lhotse, Cho Oyu and Shishapangma. You will also meet the Sherpa people, who are known for their climbing skills. The route takes about 14-16 days to complete.
2. Annapurna Region
The Annapurna region in northwestern Nepal offers superb views and the greatest variety of scenery people, culture flora and fauna. There are mainly three treks in the Annapurna region:
The Annapurna Circuit is probably the most fun-filled and diversified trekking trail of Nepal. It traverses a variety of terrain and explores the rich cultural and natural diversity of the Annapurna region.The trail covers a variety of landscapes from jungle to high alpine, lush valley and up to arid peaks passing through hospitable villages through the world’s deepest gorge. The track, however, has been reduced due to road accessibility. The track is a great adventure as you get to cross the Thorong La Pass.
The Annapurna Sanctuary Trek culminates at a point surrounded by snow-capped peaks near the Annapurna and Machhapuchhre base camp area. The base camp will allow you to stand face to face with the Mt. Everest and the valley can be breathtakingly beautiful when flowers are in full bloom.
The Muktinath Trek is a short trek in the Annapurna region. Muktinath is a holy place for Hindu and Buddhist devotees. The route offers breathtaking views of the Himalayas.
3. Manaslu Trekking Route
The Manaslu Trek is one of the most classic treks in all of Nepal. It is located around Manaslu, which is the world’s eighth highest mountain. What follows is the crossing of Larkya La pass. The region is an optional choice for special trekkers looking for a physically challenging trek as it involves some of the toughest trails. In addition, while you are on such a trek you can count on passing through a geographically spectacular and culturally fascinating area. To some extent, the Manaslu Trek is a great alternative to the Annapurna Circuit. The downside the Manaslu trek is that you require a licensed guide to take you around, and the absence of one could lead to disciplinary measures which should be avoided.
4. Upper Mustang Trek
The Upper Mustang Trek is known as the last forbidden Himalayan kingdom of Nepal. The place is located in the extended route of Annapurna Circuit Trekking and home of numerous splendors of nature and culture. The place is highly colorful and vibrant during the Tiji festival. It is a moderate trekking and offers a close-up view of the primitive society that has remained unaffected by modernization for centuries. It is a great option if you are looking for unique Tibetan culture together with stunning landscapes.
