Trekking in Nepal
Nepal is a unique destination much suited for trekking as it is blessed with typical topography. Tourist experiencing Nepal without trekking means s/he missed the crux of the trip. The reason is that this is a land destined for trekking because it is a truly a Himalayan nation where there are 1,600 peaks including tallest tower of the world—Mount Everest 8,848m.
There are 14 peaks over 8,000m in the world out of which eight are in Nepal. Moreover, 33 peaks (technical and nontechnical peaks) are opened for climbing and probably, there is no country in the world where you can get varying options of trekking and peak climbing in the world except than Nepal.
Nepal is also renowned for its vast cultural diversity. There are more than 100 ethnic groups in this small nation and more than 120 languages are spoken here. Every ethnic group has unique identity with typical culture and traditions. They have their own religion.
Similarly, 59 indigenous groups are found here and they have unique cultural identity. Due to this many scholars and researchers of the world had traveled here for their thesis paper of Philosophy in Doctorate (Ph. D.).
If there is anything called natural wonder then that very thing exists in Nepal like Rara and Shey Phoksundo Lake as they change their color thrice a day. It is a land where the last group of Bon Po (a religion older than currently existing Buddhism but different than that) practitioners exists.
Trekking is the only way to experience Nepal because more than 80 percent of country’s population resides in the remote part. Here you witness true face of Nepal—innocent face.
Furthermore, among 100 trekking trails, you can choose the best fitting for you because trails here are categorized as per its difficulty from easy to very strenuous. Even beginners can experience the best trekking in Nepal and for experienced one, there is Mount Everest to challenge the ego.
