Trekking in Nepal

Nepal invented the term trekking, placing it in the world's vocabulary. Here it means more than simply hiking. Trekking is become one with nature and the environment as you travel through the mighty Himalayas. Nepal trekking offers a variety of choices. From simply one day Nepal treks to excursions that last over a month, you can tailor a package that is right for you. Some treks are relatively simply, ideal for the novice who has never set foot in the Himalayas before. Other treks are for the more adventurous who desire to challenge themselves while experiencing some of the most pristine alpine conditions in the world. Having grown up in the mountains, the staff at GA Travels knows the Himalayas. We have trekked these trails ourselves, so we can give you first-hand knowledge of what you will see, trail conditions as well as what you will experience on a trek of a lifetime. When you have a travel partner who is experienced, it makes the difference between a stress-free, joyful trek and one that will not meet your expectations or desires.
We have listed here some of the more popular Nepal trekking routes. If you don't see what you want, or desire something different, be sure to ask us about other possibilities. We know of many others that we at GA Travels can help you to discover.
