#Annapurna Sanctuary Trek/ Annapurna Base Camp Trek

The Annapurna Sanctuary is a popular trek in Nepal because it is quite easy and there are easy lodges all along the way. If its negative point is its round trip route, the 360 ° view from the sanctuary is simply magical.

Annapurna trekking is another most popular destination for adventure travelers in Nepal. Trekking in this area offers good scenery of both high mountains and lowland villages. Annapurna trekking has also been recognized as one of the world’s best trekking trails.

#Everest Base Camp Trek

Another great trekking classic in Nepal, the Everest Base Camp trek makes it possible to tickle the high peaks of the Everest Massif. Everest tops but also Lotse and Cho yu for 8,000 m. I do not list the mountain peak of more than 6 000 m, it would be too long. A perfect trek for those who love high mountain environments. To get out of the classic route, two variants to make: the first pass through the lakes of Gokyo, the Gokyo Ri (splendid panorama of the three 8 000 cities) and Cho La. The other option, a step up in Difficulty goes through three passes over 5000m (Renjo la Pass, Cho La and Kongma La) with the addition of the Gokyo Ri (5360m), Kala Pattar (5600m).

#Langtang Valley Trek

Massive near Kathmandu, Langtang are easily accessible from the capital of Nepal. The region was heavily affected by the 2015 earthquake. Today, it is possible to return. The trails have been rehabilitated, the lodges rebuilt. I would say that the region needs tourists to survive. Read the box below that takes stock of the situation in the region.

Tibetan slave in Nepal, the Mustang offers quite unique landscapes for a trekking route in Nepal. This ancient forbidden kingdom has kept its architecture and Tibetan culture. The maximum altitude is 4300m, making the route accessible even though some steps may be a bit long.

#Manaslu Larke Pass Trek

Manaslu region trek is a remarkable way to welcome the magnificence of Mt. Manaslu which is the eighth highest mountain in the world. It is simply extraordinary by the diversity of its landscapes and the passages in altitude pass near the glaciers of Manaslu then by the larke pass with a little more than 5000 m.

The classical departure is from Arughat along the Budhi Gandaki but from Baluwa offers a greater diversity of landscapes and experiences because the route crosses several villages.

It is the last born in the region of Annapurna. Located between the Annapurna Tower and the Annapurna Balcony, the Khopra Trek route takes intermediate paths offering the most beautiful views of the Annapurna Massif. The maximum altitude is 3600 m, making this trek accessible to many walkers.

The nights are spent in community lodges set up by the villages to offer an alternative to the two aforementioned trails.
