Everest Base Camp Trek

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

Trekking in 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

Trekking in 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!
