Nepal is a country famous for trekking and peak climbing. Nepal consists of 8 out of 10 tallest peaks in the world along with the tallest peak in the world, Mount Everest. Nepal is home to the most adventurous trekking routes in the world. The Everest region and the Annapurna region are most preferred by trekkers around the world.
Due to higher altitude, trekking around the Everest region is often considered difficult and dangerous. Meanwhile, frequent avalanche and challenging terrain explain why Annapurna is considered so deadly.
In recent times, classic trekking routes such as Manaslu Round Trek are preferred by people as these treks provide complete Himalayan adventure and are much easier. Some trekking routes also hold some special religious importance as well. Trek to Gosainkunda lake, Bhairav Kunda trek, Jomsom Muktinath trek, etc. are some trekking routes where you can feel the religious importance.
For people looking for trekking experience for the first time, there are shorter trekking routes in Nepal. These routes are best for people with limited time or budget or who may have a problem with altitude sickness. In recent years, Ghorepani Poonhill trek has earned quite a popularity. It is probably because the starting point is from Pokhara which is the most popular tourist destination in Nepal.
