Trekking in Nepal will take you through a country that has captured the imagination of mountaineers, trekkers and explorers for over hundred years. You will encounter People in remote mountain villages whose life style has not changed in generations, yet they will convey a trust of foreigners that is made possible by their secure position as one of only a handful of countries in the world that has never been ruled by a foreign power. On a trek you will see great diversity throughout Nepal. Villages embrace many ethnic groups and cultures, and the terrain changes from tropical jungles to high glaciated peaks in only 150 km. From the start, the towering peaks of the Himalaya provide one of the highlights of a trek. Appearing first as many clouds on the horizon as your plane approaches Kathmandu, they become more definable as you finally land Kathmandu Tribhuwan International Airport. During a Trek the Himalaya disappears behind Nepal's continual Hill, but dominates the northern skylines at each pass- Annapurna, Langtang, Gauri Shankar, Everest , Kanchenjunga and many more. The trail in to the interior parts of the country follows ancient foot trails which meander through scenic river banks, beautiful terraced fields, and the forested ridges connecting picture square hamlets and mountains villages.
