Walking in Nepal is clearly a firm favourite and historically one of the main reasons people have been travelling here. Trekking to Everest Base Camp has always been the big draw, but then again you don't have to trek the standard up and down the same way with the hordes to Everest Base Camp either. For the more discerning, experienced trekker there are several alternative trekking routes to Everest over high passes, and therefore both more challenging and less busy by default.
Got around six months to spare? Then the Great Himalayan Trail, a complete traverse of the Himalayas is for you!
You can do it in more bite-sized sections if you like.
Himalayan trekking classics like the Annapurna Circuit and Annapurna Sanctuary are classics for good reason. Beyond the household names, Rural Heritage Journeys portfolio reaches from Kangchenjunga in the east, Makalu region, Langtang & Helambu, Mustang, Dolpo and Dhaulagiri Circuit. Add to that lesser trekked routes like our Starlight Trek, as well as several and (by Himalayan standards) relatively easy Himalayan treks like walking the Royal Trek or to Poon Hill for a dramatic Himalayan sunrise....you're spoiled for choice. Of course, not everyone wants to go walking for weeks on end, so we have a selection of short trekking holidays.
Whilst most hikes in Nepal either use teahouses/trekking lodges or camping for accommodation it's now also possible to enjoy a luxury trek in Nepal too as there are now some rather good, higher standard lodges available in the Everest & Annapurna regions providing proper beds, with fresh linen and blankets (no sleeping bags required), as well as en-suite facilities
