Wedged between India to the South and Tibet (now the autonomous region of the peoples of Republic China) to the north. Nepal has enjoyed an independent political existence from very earliest times. Even though Nepal has small strip of territory, it contains an amazing contrast in landscape and topography, ranging from the flat alluvial plain of the indo-gangtic basin in the south, in it’s terai, to the high altitude mountains covered with the perpetual snow, in the north, in which some of the world’s peak including Mt. Everest are located.
Trekking is a form of walking, undertaken with the specific purpose of exploring and enjoying the scenery. Nepal has attracted trekkers from around the world since the 1960s when Col Jimmy Robert’s organized the first commercial trek. Trekking has been the leading activity of tourists in Nepal and thousands take to the Himalayas, some doing a few days of hiking while others take on a month long trek through valleys and High Mountain. Two of the most popular trekking regions are the Everest and Annapurna where many different trails can be followed while the other popular treks are in the Langtang and Kanchenjunga regions. The most challenging is the Great Himalayan Trails, an extensive trail system that covers Nepal from Humla and Darchula in the west to Kanchenjunga in the east. The diversity of trekking trails in Nepal cannot be found in any other part of the world.
