Dubbed the “Abode of the Gods”, Best Hike says that a trip to Nepal could very well be your best trekking experience ever. They note that while most people want to do the Annapurna Circuit (ranked #8 on their list of Best Hikes in the World) or a trek to Everest Base Camp, but there are plenty of other great options as well. They recommend going with a good guide service that may even be able to get you into the restricted and legendary Mustang region of the country.
Hikers can expect a warm welcome from the Nepalese people as well, who thrive on tourism, and are friendly and cordial to foreign visitors. The options are endless, with great “tea house” treks through the Himalaya, although they do recommend April-May and October-November as the best times to visit. Avoiding the monsoon at all costs.
Nepal, Tibet, and Bhutan are all three high on my list of places to visit and a Himalayan trek sounds like a great experience. I’d actually love to go next year, but fear I won’t have enough tree time to actually make the trip worthwhile, so I’m tentatively scheduling a trip for 2009. Everyone start planning and saving now, so we can make it an Adventure Blog group outing!
