Trekking in the Himalayas
If you fancy dusting off your hiking boots in Nepal, the Annapurna Region is the most popular place for trekking here due to its incredibly diverse landscape of snow-capped mountains, beautiful rhododendron forests, terraced hillsides and rice paddies. Opt for a short easy-paced trek here or if you’ve got more time on your hands and fancy a challenge why not consider trekking to Everest Base Camp at 5400 metres. Other possible treks include the challenging Kangchenjunga Base Camp in the remote eastern Himalayas and treks in the Langtang region.
