“Trekking” is very much popular outdoor adventure in Nepal. There are many famous treks that are being trended all over Nepal, but have you wondered the best treks in Nepal yet?
Yes, here are some of the best treks in Nepal that will clear all the doubts that you still have in your mind about the term “TREKKING”.
With the information given below, I have found the list of amazing treks than any other. Hope that you will get it through information too.
Everest Base Camp Trek Details
Among the top 9 list of best treks in Nepal, Everest Base Camp Trek comes up in the top. It is because the term “Everest” itself is well known as it is the world’s highest mountain. The height of Mt. Everest is about 8848 meters (29,090 ft. approx.) above the sea level.
As my experience, this journey to Everest Base Camp Trek starts with the breath-taking flight from Kathmandu to Lukla.
The main trek begins from the trail that starts from Sagarmatha National Park. From there, heart touching mountains covered with red Rhododendron, the national flower of Nepal, can be seen which is one of the EXPERIENCES OF A LIFETIME.
Given below is the Everest base camp trek experience or you can say details about Everest base camp trek that will surely amaze you!
At the beginning of the journey, as you start your trekking journey from Kathmandu to Lukla to Phakding via flight, you can see the most amazing scene of the mountains as if you think you are somewhere else.
Everest Flight Images
You can see the worlds third, fourth and fifth highest mountains i.e. Kanchanjungha, Lhotse and Makalu respectively along with the trail of the foothills merging as you move along.
At about half-way up the hill, a gap in the trees allows us to spy Everest for the first time. If the weather is clear the top of the South-West Face will be just visible behind the long Lhotse-Nuptse ridge.
Namche is the most prosperous and the largest town in the Khumbu. A bazaar is held here every Saturday. The wares on display include meat, grains, and vegetables, tennis shoes and trinkets as well as hand-woven aprons and Tibetan boots. Thamserku (6648m), Kwangde Ri (6187m) and Khumbila (5707m) surround the natural bowl that Namche sits in.
You can then begin the day with a short hard climb to get to the ridge and walk towards Kyanjua. On the way you can have a breathtaking view of Highest Mountain in the world Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Ama Dablam, Thamserku, Kondge and many more mountains. The trail on which we will be following today descends to Fungi Tanga then ascends to Thyangboche through the forest. You can visit the Thyangboche monastery in the evening time and stay overnight at the hotel.
We follow the path down from Tengboche through the rhododendron forest to Deboche and cross an exciting bridge with the boiling, roaring Imja Khol beneath our feet. A gradual climb takes us to the village of Lower Pangboche. We are now in the heart of the Khumbu, with spectacular views across to Ama Dablam.
We climb up to the ridge behind Periche and stay high, mesmerized by the views of Tawoche and Cholatse, until we reach the tea houses at Dughla. A steep, stiff ascent to the terminal moraine of the Khumbu glacier is now tackled.
A long day and an early start. We trek along the rough path along the side of the Khumbu glacier to the tea shacks at Gorak Shep. Behind rises the attractive 7000m peak of Pumori which dwarfs our trek’s summit of Kala Pattar.
The trail from Lobuche follows the grassy ablation valley with great views of Pumori then crosses a tributary glacier to reach the dry lakebed of Gorak Shep. We then climb the 5545m Kala Pattar for incredible views of Everest and Everest Base Camp. After an hour excursion, we descend to Gorakshep for the overnight.
We begin our trek to Everest Base Camp through Gorak Shep Lake. We reach Indian mountaineers memorials. The path here is tricky so we have to follow our Sherpa. As go on through rocky dunes, moraine and streams we reach Everest Base Camp which trekker say to be best treks in Nepal.
We descend all morning via Periche to Pangboche, whereupon we stay high on the west bank of the river all the way to the Sherpa village of Phortse, which lies on the lower southern flank of Tawoche, lying in one of the best treks in Nepal directly across the valley from Tengboche.
Eventually, we turn south off the main trail to Khunde and Khumjung, contouring past the Everest View Hotel. The route then leads down the hill to Namche and more cinnamon roll!
Most people head towards Lukla with a heavy heart. There is something very special about the setting, the villages and the people of the high Khumbu hills and valleys and our memories help us up the deceptively long, final climb into Lukla.
Flights into Lukla are sometimes delayed due to un-flyable conditions. Either in fog-bound Kathmandu or windy Lukla.
ANNAPURNA CIRCUIT TREK
An ideal introductory trek, the Annapurna Circuit Trek is one of the most happening trekking experience in Nepal that offers the trekkers with outstanding scenery. The traverse along the challenging passes and natural amphitheater of Annapurna, exploration of the nature sanctuary with rich natural heritage, excellent hospitality and diverse landscape makes the Annapurna Circuit Trek a worthy experience.
The trail provides view of the eight-thousanders (Manaslu 8156m, Annapurna I 8091m, and Dhaulagiri 8167m) along with peaks such as Mt. Fishtail (6998m), Mt. Annapurna II (7940m), Mt. Annapurna III (7550m), Annapurna South (7220m), Mt. Annapurna IV (7525m), Tilicho Peak (7135m) among others.
