Trekking in Nepal, as a whole, is a challenging but extremely rewarding adventure sport. In fact the Mt. Everest trails are physically very demanding since they start higher up in the Himalayas. On the other hand the Mt. Annapurna treks are not as demanding since they are all situated in the foothills of the mighty Himalayas. Hence choosing the correct route needs to be done after careful deliberation. There are two things that need to be taken into account when choosing a trial to trek in Nepal. They are:

• The physical condition and tenacity of the trekker and

• The intensity of challenges offered by the trails.

For intense trails the physical fitness of the trekker is of great importance since even a Nepal base camp trek can be physically very taxing and a test of the physical endurance of a person. Thus only seasoned mountain climbers with quite a bit of wholesome mountaineering experience should opt for these trails.

On the other hand, Nepal also boasts of numerous trails of moderate intensity which can be taken up and successfully completed by both beginners and amateurs. These trails are filled with ever-changing scenic beauty, the likes of which are rarely witnessed elsewhere. Some of the popular Nepal trekking tours include:

Offering a fascinating glimpse of the traditional village life of Nepal, this tour is truly an experience worth cherishing.

An extremely challenging trek that is also very popular with serious mountaineers is the Nepal Everest base camp trek. In fact this route is often said to be the "steps to heaven" because of the innumerable photographic opportunities that every bend of the trail provides.
