Mountains and fascinating local culture, Nepal is a favorite
destination for adventurous travelers. Each year thousands
embark upon the experience of a lifetime to spend days or weeks
in the breathtakingly beautiful country of Nepal.
travelers in Nepal will be treated to magnificent views from

past clear mountain lakes, rivers and waterfalls. They'll visit
remote Buddhist monasteries and shrines and see tiny mountain

Trekking expeditions in Nepal are quite popular. They typically
involve a small group of people who have been given a list of
equipment, such as hiking boots, to bring with them to Nepal.
Once they arrive in the country they set off together to
explore. There is usually a trekking staff that comes along on
the trip and carries most of the camping equipment and even the
travelers' bags. They set up the camp, cook meals and break
camp, leaving the traveler to enjoy the trek without the
physical hardship of toting heavy packs.
Treks are available for people with various abilities. While a
person should be in good shape for these treks, one does not
need to be a tri-athlete to take part. There are more strenuous
treks for those in great physical condition, as well as easier
treks. Many of the easier treks are appropriate for families and
allow children to participate. Some companies rate the treks
they offer by level of difficulty, to help travelers judge which
trek would be best for them.

travel in Nepal, it is by no means the only one. There are many
ways to enjoy the great outdoors in beautiful and mysterious
