Important factors to consider when deciding where to take your next trip in Nepal should be popularity of the area, duration of the proposed trek route, trek style and pricing. Take a look at our top five treks in Nepal for trekking destination inspiration.
Manaslu Circuit Trek
The route considered to be one of the best treks in Nepal circumnavigates Mt. Manaslu (8,156 m), the 8th highest mountain in the world, reaching its highest point at Larkya Pass, which offers unhindered views of Manaslu. This route is diverse, remote, secluded and enriched topography, offering a fabulous experience for a person looking to take an adventurous journey to explore the scenic beauty of the Himalayan region.
Everest Base Camp
With a high number of trekkers visiting per year, this is one of the least remote routes in Nepal, so if you’re looking for untouched land you won’t get it here. Choose Everest Base camp if you’re looking to explore the Sherpa villages, experience the culture and to relish the spectacular close up views of the world’s highest mountains.
Annapurna Dhaulagiri Panorama Trek
This fairly new trek follows the well-trodden teahouse trek to Ghorepani and Poon Hill, before deviating north, down into a densely forested valley, and then up a ridge called Khopra Dande to a stone teahouse perched above the clouds, nestled between Dhaulagiri and Annapurna South. Hence the panoramic views.
Press forward an extra day to visit a sacred lake at 3880m, at the foot of Annapurna South.
Days: 7 – 21
Offering an excellent vantage point and easily accessible from Kathmandu, the Langtang Valley trek is a relatively shorter, lower-altitude trek for those who wish to spend time exploring the culture and beautiful landscape. The route curls its way up a valley to a basin at the foot of Langtang Ri (7205m), close to the border of Tibet.
Ghorepani Poon Hill
Difficulty: Easy to moderate
A comparatively less taxing trek, the Ghorepani Poon Hill route is the best trek in Nepal to explore the beauty, culture and hospitality of the Annapurna Region in a short period of time. Be sure to catch the stunning sunrise view over the panorama Annapurna range.
