Are you an elderly person? Of course not right? We all are always young by our heart no matter how many birthdays we celebrate. However, a doubt strikes us a little whenever we try to do something physically demanding and our body doesn’t respond well. Basically, it refers that we are getting aged.

So, getting old means an end to the fun and traveling? Definitely not! There are still many beautiful sites that you want to see, visit and explore. And your age has nothing to do with this strong desire of traveling around the world. In this case, thankfully, Nepal is such a beautiful country with so many traveling and trekking options for elderly people that it satiates every desire of travel enthusiasts at the highest level. Some of the treks recommended for elderly people are:

  • Everest View Trek
  • Ghorepani Poonhill trek
  • Royal Trek
  • Other activities such as mountain flight and jungle safari etc.

However, you are recommended to consider the following tips before heading up for traveling into a foreign country:

  • First, enquire at a trusted and reputed local travel agency
  • Consult your local doctor
  • Ensure you packed your medicines and got medical insurance
  • Prearrange wheelchair consulting your airline's company
  • Prebook accommodation wherever possible
  • Wear comfortable clothes

And recommended tips while you arrive in Nepal are:

  • Eat healthily
  • Take adequate rest
  • Plan proper acclimatization
  • Use a walking cane if needed
  • Accept help from local inhabitants
  • Be grateful for what you got rather than sad for what you missed
