Trek around the foothills of Nepal Himalayas is those adventures that are filled with the wonderful opportunity to click the world’s most photogenic sceneries. You might wonder that treks in Nepal are only about Himalayas and specifically popular trips like Everest base camp trek and Annapurna base camp trek. But along these remarkable trips, other things that grasp your attention are local living, diversified culture, and tradition, the discovery of wildlife, encountering pristine waterfalls, rivers, lakes, and glaciers along with an insight into local sightseeing around the UNESCO world heritage sites in Kathmandu valley. Here are my top 5 reasons that joining Nepal treks let you capture the world’s most photogenic sceneries:

  1. Himalayas: Spectacular Himalayan Sceneries

    Nepal is the home of the world’s highest Himalayan peaks and other spectacular Himalayan ranges that creates the perfect panorama, especially during sunrise and sunset. Some of the popular viewpoints exhibiting the best of Himalayas are Kalapathhar during Everest base camp trek, the summit of Gokyo ri during Gokyo lakes and Gokyo ri trek, Annapurna base camp itself during Annapurna base camp trek, Poonhill during Ghorepani poonhill trek, and many others. If your photography’s theme is nature, mountains, or the Himalayas then there is no other place in the world other photogenic destination than Nepal. And remember trekking in Nepal is the best way to get close and capture the magnificent snow-capped Himalayan pictures.

  2. People: Diversified culture and tradition

    Friendly people of Nepal always bring a smile to your face with their warm hospitality and helpful nature. Here while walking around culturally affluent villages, you will get the chance to meet and interact with them, know their culture, religious views, ancient traditions and on specific dates participate in festivals like Holi, Indra Jatra, Dashain and Tihar too. Regarding your photography theme, cultural diversification during trekking in Nepal would be the major highlights. Insight to Mustangi people during Upper mustang trek, Sherpas during Everest base camp trek, Tamangs during Langtang valley trek or Tamang heritage trek, Gurungs during Annapurna base camp trek or Annapurna panorama trek, and Newars during sightseeing around three medieval towns Kathmandu, Patan, and Bhaktapur. Similarly, the Tharu culture around Chitwan and Maithili culture around Janakpur are highlights of lovely people living in the Terai region of Nepal.

  3. Wildlife: Discovery of nature in its wild state

    Hiking at high altitudes in Nepal comprises walking through beautiful forested lands where numerous rare floras and faunas can be encountered in its wild state. Trekking in Nepal can be a perfect bird-watching tour or blended with an excursion to Chitwan National Park that exhibits Royal Bengal Tiger, One-horned Rhino, crocodiles on an elephant safari, or jeep safari. Along Chitwan National park, other national parks like Bardia National Park, Koshi tappu wildlife reserve, Langtang national park, Sagarmatha national park, and the Annapurna conservation area also offer an exclusive opportunity of encountering an abundance of wildlife. It would be a gem of a tour and trekking in Nepal for wildlife photographers.

  4. Water: Encounter the enthralling lakes, rivers, glaciers, and waterfalls

    Nepal hiking adventure is an adventurous walk through banks of raging rivers, striking waterfalls, pristine lakes, and snowy glaciers which can be heaven for nature photographers. There wouldn’t be a beautiful lake city like Pokhara anywhere else on the planet. Phewa Lake, Begnas lake, and Rupa lake to name a few, Pokhara is also the gateway to trekking trips in the Annapurna region. On the other hand, Tilicho lake trek, Gokyo Lakes at Everest region, and Gosaikunda Lake at Langtang region are other trekking trips that promote lakes as their main highlights. For glaciers, Khumbu glacier during Everest base camp trek and Ngozumpa glacier during Everest high passes trek would be the perfect photographic destination. Similarly, join white rafting adventure for challenging yet delightful river trips and canyoning watersport for waterfalls. Trishuli, Bhotekoshi, Kaligandaki and Sunkoshi rivers are popular for water adventure in Nepal. Got an underwater camera? Then Nepal is the place you must visit.

  5. Art and Architecture: Insightful sightseeing around world heritage sites

    An exciting journey of Himalayan walking adventures in Nepal initiates from cultural sightseeing around art and architecturally affluent Kathmandu valley. Swayambhunath and Boudhanath stupa along Pashupatinath temple holds great importance religiously and immense opportunities to capture spectacular images. Plenty of pagoda-style temples around Kathmandu Durbar square, Bhaktapur Durbar Square, Patan Durbar Square; palaces with courtyards and ancient museums around there give us an insight into century’s old histories and magnificent piece of photogenic arts that can be perfectly fitted within your camera frame.
