Trekking in the Himalayas
The Himalaya Mountain regions provide some of the finest trekking in the Himalayas routes available anywhere. Nepal can be divided into three distinct regions; in the north, the Himalaya, the high mountainous region; the middle hill district; and the lowland Terai region to the south offers some of the most fantastic hiking in the world. Treks vary from high altitude routes some of which visit base camps used by the 8000m mountaineering expeditions to easy short treks within the Kathmandu Valley and lower hill country where you’ll travel through pretty villages, subtropical lowlands, vast meadows and forests, fast flowing rivers, deep canyons and even the cold and barren regions at the feet of the great mountain peaks. The views change with the seasons, with different stages of planting and harvesting cycles in the villages and valleys and the brilliant display of wildflowers in spring and autumn.
