Very difficult trail but very rewarding scenes.

Days 1-3 of EBC via Gokyo.

From another world. The best of Nepal by far. Do not hesitate. Discard the Everest base camp and surrender to surrealism.

Very busy Best Anapurna circuit trek much more varied and mystical.

Incredible trek. You don’t have to be in impeccable shape to do this either. I bought the ticket to Lukla on a whim after backpacking through India for a month and my only exercise was walking in sandals. I did it in Nike Frees with holes in the toes & some knock-off gear bought in Thamel. I did it without a guide or Sherpa 100% solo. And was an inexperienced backpacker at the time. Altitude sickness got to me- especially in Gorak Shep, but I think it would’ve helped if I took a third acclimation day on the way- so if you have time, take full advantage of all the zero days you can. I couldn’t climb Kala Pattar because of it. Did it in late November/early December and the weather was ideal. It was VERY cold at night but perfect during the day & nearly 100% clear skies.

The best ever experience!!! On the way to base camp, I climbed the Island Peak, 6189 meters! It is a perfect choice for a technical climbing beginner.

Definitely doable in 1 day. I took too much water, keep in mind that there are places to buy water and food throughout the trip (especially 1st half). Had a fantastic stop on Chisapani for coffee and lunch. Also the last part has great views. Some of the jungle parts had lots of flying bugs, also watch out as there are leeches.

Not as difficult as people made it out to be. Although this should be done with a small group and not rushed. Would recommend completing with Gokyo. Completed dec 2016.

The highest altitude trek in the shortest amount of days, the Mardi Himmel packs everything the Himalayas has to offer into one short trek.

This remote valley was opened to trekking in 2008, less explored means less numbers of trekker around, beautiful view of the Ganesh himal with rich tibetian influenced culture of the local. less amenities for the hospitality compared to the other popular routes but worthy for trek since we are seeking for adventure. Special Restricted Area Permit is needed to go through this trek with Guide. if you are interested and looking for this trek and need more information do let us know at trekinhimalayas3@gmail.com we help you to design customize trek, help finding handpicked guide, accomodation and special permits!

One of the best place overnight hike around Kathmandu Valley. Your hike begins from North side of Kathmandu valley Sundarjal, on the trail you will be able to witness sources of fresh water, beautiful tamang (ethnic group) village and their culture, variation on vegetation with gain in elevation, and majestic Himalayan range before reaching destination. Also, during morning you will be welcomed with beautiful sunrise. You can also take another route from North of Kathmandu, from Muhan Pokhari, Budhanilkantha to avoid construction, where you can experience green vegetation, orchid, and if lucky some wild animals. let us know if you are searching for trip details with guide at trekinhimalayas3@gmail.com

It's an once in life time opportunities. I had an amazing time, walking thorugh the george, ridge, valley with magnificient view of the Himalayas along side the beautiful Sherpa people. I fully recomend it to anyone but be well acclimatized while trekking up! Cheers! Also, if you are wondering to find good arrangement of your logistic contact trekinhimalayas3@gmail.com

i completed this trek in May 2011. what an amazing experience. it wasn’t easy by any means and i was completely exhausted at the finish, but it was so worth it. my suggestion is to find a group that has climbers on the mountain and stay in basecamp for the night. drink plenty of water along the way and you should be fine, i had no issues with altitude and i wish i’d have been in a little better condition prior to attempting this

I did this trek as part of my "post Peace Corps World tour" in Feb. of 1980....a good time to go before the monsoon rains start (and higher altitude snow) This trek starts east of Pokhara in western Nepal and goes up the Maryisandi River Valley to Manang, over the high Thorang La pass (about 18,000') down to Muktinah, and then down the Khali Gandaki Gorge. It basically circumvents the peaks of the Annapurna Massif (10th highest in the world), then goes by Dhaulagiri (#8) and Machachupare (looks like the Matterhorn but 8000' higher)....I did the trek just 2 years after it had opened, in 1980, and for most of the trek (up to Muktinak) my buddy and I and and a few others we hiked with were the only ones on the trail (for a good 2 weeks), unlike the last week on the KhaliGandi part, which was easier and full of tourists...make sure you hike at the right time of year, bring winter weather gear and good boots, and watch the weather; in October 2014, 43+ trekkers died on the Thorong la pass in a blizzard caused by an Indian Ocean cyclone...you can overnight with local people in their huts or camp out...we did both; but, at least in 1980, we had to camp out at higher altitudes since we found the villages deserted, the people having gone down the valley for the winter...so carry plenty of food with you if you do the hike in winter...we found some snow (about a foot) below Manang, so we acclimatized there (it's about 10,000') and waited for most of the snow to melt before going over the pass...if you have ever had altitude sickness, DO NOT attempt to go over the pass, near 18000', and Muktinah, at 12000', causes some people problems...all in all this trek was one of the high points in my life; do it if you have the time (takes about 3 weeks)....

This is for 2007 trek: I would encourage anyone able to, to do this trek! first, at the time it was one of the most inexpensive trips I've ever taken with 18 days inn country amounting to about $800 with all expenses paid including to domestic high-altitude flights and three nights in a 3 to 4 star hotel as well as all the lodging and food on the trail. it is absolutely exhausting, but that may have been because I did it as stupidly as one can. having a wild hair to go and literally being on a plane a few weeks later without hardly any training. during the trek I almost died twice due to altitude sickness, two other people did die and 5 people had to be airlifted out. Everest is popular, but it's not easy. all the focus is on summiting the mountain, but it's really no slouch due to efforts train in altitude to even make it to base camp. but for those that can do it it is absolutely rewarding as the Nepali people are some of the most kind and warm people I've met the land is absolutely gorgeous and it is really a spiritual journey!
