The 10 Best Nepal Trekking Routes

When one talks about trekking, the first place one thinks about is Nepal. Nepal has a diverse landscape which makes it perfect for trekking. With 14 mountains of 8000+ meters, terraced landscapes, beautiful bamboo, and rhododendron forests can avoid trekking in the Himalayas.


Visitors will surely be stunned by Nepal’s beauty, whether it’s natural or cultural. Nepal is the country where Buddha was born, so it’s no surprise that it is culturally rich. Moreover, traveling through the Himalayas feels like walking in heaven on earth. For those dreamers wishing to visit Nepal for trekking, it has brought a list of 10 Best Nepal Trekking destinations.

1. Everest Gokyo Lakes Trek

Gokyo Lakes are some of the most beautiful lakes in the world. Your trek begins with the flight to Lukla. Then, you will be trekking for a half-day to Phakding. The trek takes you through the turquoise Gokyo Lakes. The lakes are such a beauty that you can’t take your eyes off them.

Besides the natural beauty of the lake and the mountains, you will get to experience the culture of one of the most hospitable people in the world, Sherpa.


2. Ghorepani – Poon Hill Trek

Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek is a great alternative to Annapurna Base Camp Trek. It is a perfect choice for those wanting to experience trekking in the Annapurna region, but don’t have enough time to go for a full Annapurna Base Camp trek.

The trek takes around a week to complete and is one of the most picturesque treks in Nepal. Similarly, you will be moving through Gurung settlements. Gurung is the native of the region, and they have a unique culture and very delicious food exclusive to their tribe. The trip allows you to pass through rhododendron forests, mountain villages, and bamboo forests. In addition, you will get a stunning view of Fishtail Mountain, Annapurna, and Dhaulagiri.


3. Annapurna Base Camp Trek

Annapurna Base Camp Trek is the most popular trek in Nepal. It is one of the most beautiful and varied hikes. The trek takes you through all kinds of climate zones except the tropics. Also, the landscape is so beautiful that it will blow your mind. Furthermore, the area is so big that you can easily spend a couple of weeks without properly exploring the whole region.

This trekking trail is trendy among all levels of trekkers throughout the world. As the trek’s difficulty is moderate at most, even a total novice can challenge it. In general, the trek lasts around 14 to 16 days. So, if you can take around two weeks to travel, you should try the Annapurna Base Camp Trek.

The major highlight of the ABC trek is the Annapurna Sanctuary, which lies between the peaks of Annapurna. You can reach the sanctuary within five days of walking. 


4. Langtang Trek

From Kathmandu, Langtang Valley is one of the nearest treks. The trek offers alpine trekking running from east to west, only a few miles away from the Tibetan border. Langtang trek is a short trek that you can complete within a week. However, don’t underestimate this trek because of its low duration. The trek offers you astonishing views of the mountains, not only of Nepal but also of Tibet. Likewise, you will get to witness the beautiful scenery of oaks and rhododendrons forest, yaks moving their way home, and many more. 


5. Manaslu Trek

Manaslu is one of the underrated treks in Nepal. With Annapurna beside it, it is rarely visited. But, its low popularity is an attraction on its own. However, I don’t think that the Manaslu region is any less beautiful than the Annapurna region, just due to its popularity. Manaslu region has everything that can make it one of the best trekking regions of Nepal. It has the beauty of the Nepalese countryside, surrounded by rice fields and forests. Similarly, you can get a magnificent panorama of the majestic Himalayas.


6. Upper Mustang Trek

Upper Mustang Trek is the complete opposite compared to other trekking trails in Nepal. The trail lies between ocher cliffs, fairy chimneys, and Buddhist monasteries. It has remained authentic and wild, as it was a different kingdom recently. The trail doesn’t see snow; rather, it is kind of a desert.


7. Dhaulagiri Trek

Dhaulagiri Massif is one of the most beautiful mountains in the world. The trek takes you through the isolated region of Dhaulagiri. This trek allows you to enjoy a varied and diverse nature. Similarly, you will be moving through the bamboo forest, and pine trees and passing through glacial rivers. The trek is mostly for experienced hikers wanting to venture on a high-altitude Himalayan trekking route. As the difficulty of this trek is great, novices are not allowed on this trail. Also, it is one of the longest trails that can take up to 20 days. 


8. Everest Base Camp Trek

Everest Base Camp Trek is the trek that every trekker dreams of. Although we have kept it in the eighth spot, it is the most popular trek in the whole world. However, due to its popularity, the trek is crowded almost all the time of the year. Furthermore, in peak season, you might not even get to enjoy the trip properly with many people traveling around.

However, in the case of natural and cultural beauty, it is definitely on the top. The trek begins with a scenic flight to Lukla and passes through Namche, Tengboche, Dingboche, EBC, and Kalapatthar.


9. The Kanchenjunga Trek

The Kanchenjunga trek is another trek with hard difficulty. Mt. Kanchenjunga is the third-highest mountain in the world. This exceptional trek goes through the Far East, a remote and wild region dominated by Kangchenjunga. The trek takes around 21 days to complete and passes through rice fields, jungle, alpine pastures, and glacial valleys, highlighting the magnificent belvederes of Oktang and Pang Pema.


10. Khumbu Three Passes Trek

Khumbu Three Passes Trek is an adventure-filled trip that is also very underrated. The trek takes you through the Khumbu valley while admiring high passes and enjoying magnificent views of Himalayan peaks: Cho Oyu, Ama Dablam, Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, and Makalu.
