Nature has always been kind to its lovers and admirers. It has always been ready to offer them with whatever it has for them to shower with. But it is up to us how much we can take it! How much we can endeavor!
Owning varieties of beautiful landscapes and Himalayan panorama, trekking in Nepal has always been a topic of interest around the globe. The world’s highest peak- Mt. Everest and other towering picks has always allured millions of trekkers around. But trekking along these trials is not always easy. Every trial has its own demand. Some trials are easy; some are moderate while others are strenuous and more than strenuous. The physical endurance required to accomplish a trek differs from one to another.
Therefore, you need to make a right choice knowing your level of physical endurance. On the basis of the physical endurance required, we have categorized treks into following six categories:
In this category of trek, you walk in the well maintained walking trails or can say it village trails with well managed pavements or sometimes in rough motor-able or mountain biking roads. There will be plenty of good accommodation facilities during the trek. The maximum elevation gain rises up to 3 500 m and the trekking hour ranges are in between 4 to 5 hours per day and trek duration ranging in between a week long to 10 days maximum .
