Best Treks for Beginners
Nepal has so much to offer yet the Himalayas remain one of the most alluring factors which attracts thousands of foreign tourists from all across the globe each year. After all, the Himalayas are a blessed gift of nature which is made up of white, snowy mountains that touch the sky with majestic peaks. Anyone can fall in love with the idea of trekking amongst these giant massifs. But many novice trekkers often believe that Himalayas are something that are only meant for extreme life-threatening adventures. And that’s totally false! There are treks which can be done by beginners who have never stepped in the Himalayan nation as well.
So, today I will be talking about the best treks which are perfectly suited for beginners.
- Ghorepani Poonhill Trek
Taking you through the fames Annapurna region of western Nepal, Ghorepani Poonhill Trek is truly a joy of a lifetime as it takes you through a beautiful trek route that surpasses your wildest thoughts. Ghorepani Poonhill Trek usually takes 9 days to complete but it can get shorter or longer as per your trek itinerary. Nonetheless, the trek is incredible with awe-inspiring mountain sceneries that can be seen from the top of Poon Hill. Furthermore, it is even said that Poon Hill is one of the best vantage points inside Annapurna region to view the magnificent Himalayan massifs.
- Everest View Trek
After Ghorepani Poonhill Trek, we have the stunning Everest View Trek. And the reason I say that it is a stunning trek is because you get to travel inside the amazing Khumbu region where the world’s highest mountain Mt. Everest (8,848m) is situated. Yes, you won’t be trekking to the phenomenal Everest Base Camp which is located at over 5,000 meters above sea level. But you will get to see the glorious, breathtaking view of Mt. Everest from the world’s highest hotel. Besides that, you will even get the chance to visit some iconic Sherpa towns and villages while exploring the verdant Sagarmatha National Park.
- Langtang Valley Trek
Langtang Valley is one of the closest trekking destination near Kathmandu city – the capital city of Nepal. It’s is situated close to the northern Tibetan border due to which it is vastly influenced by Tibetan norms and cultures. During the trek, trekkers will pass through a beautiful valley covered with dense forests which home to many exotic wild animals and plants. Hence, if you love wildlife, this may be a perfect opportunity for you to capture some great shots with your camera during your trek. And what’s more is that it’s not that hard, as the trek route won’t exert much physical pressure on your body.
- Panchase Trek
If you want to spend some day away from the hectic city areas but don’t want to travel at very high altitudes for weeks. Then Panchase Trek might be what you are looking for. You first need to reach Pokhara city which is very famous among tourists for its iconic view of Mt. Machapuchare (Fish Tail) along the shores of Phewa Lake. On your journey, you will meet lovely Nepalese people and go through several village communities while spending few nights out in the serenity of Nepal where fresh air and beautiful mountain views await you. What’s more is that you will even get to hike atop Panchase Hill which is mere 2,500 meters above sea level for a dramatic Himalayan view.
