Besides, Nepal is richer in Heritage Sites especially in Hinduism and Buddhism. As a result, tourism is considered as one of the integral parts of Nepal for enhancing the foreign currency.

Nepal is the most popular destination for tours and trekking as well as the mountaineering. It is the dream attraction of every trekker. Mt. Everest, the highest mountain in the world is the key attraction of Nepal. Most of the visitors give the top priority to the Everest Base Camp Trek. It is a prime motto of them to reach there at least once over their lifetime in order to see the spectacular Everest Views.

Similarly, other highest mountains like Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Manaslu, Lhotse, Cho You, Makalu and the Kanchenjunga are also getting the popularity.

There are some restricted areas in Nepal for trekking like Dolpo, Tsum Valley, Nar-Phu Village, Kanchenjunga and Upper Mustang and so on. However, it has been being possible in such an off the beaten area too if you hire the guides and porters.

Apart from them, the greeneries, hills, flora and fauna, waterfalls, suspension bridges, unexplored culture and lifestyles of locals, and so forth are other highlights of Nepal trekking and tours. Likewise, the moraine valleys, deserted landscapes, cliffs, the uphill and downhill walk are the further compliments of adventure holidays.

While trekking in Nepal Himalayas, Tea house is used as the accommodation. It is not like the hotels of city area, but adjustable with twin sharing basis rooms. The foods in trekking are fresh and hygienic. It is tasty too as it is prepared in the fire wood. The Teahouses serve a Nepali food (rice, curry, pickle and lentil) most of the time during the trekking period. However, the Tibetan, continental, Chinese and others can also be available. The trekkers can have a breakfast and dinner at same Teahouse wherever they stay, but the lunch is served on the way to their trail.

The trekkers need to have the three types of permits for getting into any trekking zone such as Trekkers’ Information Management System (TIMS) Card, Conservation Area or National Park Permit and the Trekking Permit for the restricted area. These permits depend on the places where the visitors are actually going to.

Spring and autumn are the Nepal trekking best seasons. Due to the perfect weather, the mountains scenes and greeneries seem vividly outstanding.

There are numerous trekking destinations for the beginners to the adventure seekers. So, trekking in Nepal offers the verities of routes with cheaper to expensive cost as per the requirement of the valued guest. The itinerary is varied depending on the trekking area.

At last, trekking in Nepal alone is possible except at the restricted zone. But we strongly suggest every solo trekker to hire at least one porter for safety and security. As a result, they can be prevented from the unexpected incident. Hiring a porter means promoting the locals in tourism as well.
