Are you an adventure lover? Are you born to explore the natural and adventurous world? If you say “Yes” your choice should be the unique land “Of Nepal.” Trekking in Nepal does not always mean Mountain climbing. While an ascent to a Himalayan peak is sure to add more excitement, it is not necessary to have such a goal to enjoy the trek.
Trekking is mostly referred to as walking through the trails and this is what most people are concerned with. Trek to Nepal is the ultimate way to experience and explore the magnificent beauty of the Himalayas and thrilling views of the endless majestic Mountains. It is true that just you climb Everest and produce sweat in your body and wash out with the current of White water from the chest of the Himalayas as you trek down to the base Camp areas.

Best Time to Trek in Nepal
Nepal is a country that gives all-season trek opportunities. So no season is a bad season here and always has one or the other region that can be explored. While every season has its own pros and cons, various destinations have their own preferred season. But since most visits to Nepal is for trekking and most trekkers usually prefer the most popular treks in Nepal, the month of autumn sees the highest crowd of visitors. Then after, spring is the right time to travel as there are clear skies and winter has just ended. It is only one unique land where you can take breakfast viewing the highest mountain Mt. Everest in the morning, Raft in the white water during the day, and sleep with delicious dinner at the lowest elevation. (The highest point is Mt. Everest (8848m) in the North and the lowest point (70 meters above sea level) is located at Kechana Kalan of Jhapa District). This diverse geographical phenomenon provides you with all types of flavors from the coldest region to the hottest region on the same day so we don’t have off-season in Nepal.
Do’s and Don’ts During Trekking
Nepal has its own traditions and cultures when it comes to dressing. From the viewpoint of the locals, Men should never be bare body except while bathing and for women a shirt no shorter than mid-calf in length is preferable. Respect for privacy while taking photographs, respect for holy places, local traditions, customs, values, and sentiments are a few things that must be kept in mind.
Trekking in Nepal Post-Earthquake
The earthquake of 25 April 2015 has left its mark on the heart of every Nepali, but it has not broken our spirit. Only 2% of the total tourist areas were affected and the remaining sites are still functional.
A small proof that Nepal is certainly the best place to plan a trek to is that it was ranked 5th in the top 10 list of countries to travel in 2017 by Lonely Planet as “Best To Travel in 2017.” Shortly before this post, Lonely Planet had ranked Nepal in 1st position as “Best Value Destination.”
This clearly shows how much Nepal has grown since the tragic incident in 2015 and helps you give an answer to all your questions above. Great Nepal Treks and Expedition has successfully operated several travel, tour, and trekking programs during and after the Covid-19 pandemic too.
