For anyone who loves the mountains, life simply doesn't get any better than a trek through the Nepal Himalaya. The world's highest mountain range defines everything in Nepal, for its topography and its weather to its religion and trade.
It's also home to the grandest mountain scenery you'll ever see. 'In a hundred ages of the gods,' rhapsodises the ancient Indian text the Skanda Puran, 'I could not tell thee of the glories of Himachel'.
TREKKING IN NEPAL
Nepal sets the global standard for spectacular, hassle-free trekking, especially in the teahouse trekking regions of Everest and the Annapurnas. Nowhere else can you hike for weeks into the very heart of a mountain range, safe in the knowledge that at the end of the day you can count on a clean bed, a hot meal and a slice of warm apple pie. Leave the tent, stove and freeze-dried goulash at home. This is trekking at its most accessible.
