Nepal is actually heaven for people who love trekking. I have listed the top trek destinations to visit in Nepal that are good for trekking, along with photos. I hope you will enjoy reading and seeing the photos.
Annapurna Base Camp
Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) is one of the most popular trekking destinations in Nepal. It offers a beautiful view of Annapurna Mountain, along with the view of Machhapuchre on the way. It’s a 7 to 9-day trek starting from Kathmandu valley, based on our travel speed and vehicle availability. It’s considered an easy trek as there are enough hotels along the way with modern facilities.
The trail is also pretty well made, as a lot of trekkers travel there every year, and the number is only increasing. The trek begins from Pokhara, one of Nepal’s most beautiful cities. You can experience dense forest walks, mountains, flowers, snow, wind, waterfalls, and more on the way to the base camp. Reaching the base camp can be one of the most fulfilling experiences that you can have. You will see an almost 360-degree mountain view from the base camp. The total cost of the trip would be somewhere around Rs. 30,000 to Rs. 35,000.
Located in the Jumla district of Nepal, Rara is one of the biggest lakes in the country. There are two ways to reach Rara: by flight and by road. Flight is extremely dangerous and Talcha airport accepts only twin-otter planes.
The turbulence is crazy, and I didn’t have the courage to fly there. You can easily visit Rara and be back in Kathmandu in three days if all the flights are on time, but it’s very unlikely to happen. Weather changes frequently, and flight schedules keep changing.
Another longer way to get there is by road. You can get some off-road vehicles for rental in Kathmandu and start your trip. It will take you at least two and a half days to reach Rara if you drive continuously but rest only at night. You will have to walk for just over 1.5 hours after parking your vehicle.
A 1.5-hour walk is very easy, as you can see green grassland with beautiful forests. Your excitement increases after you start getting a glimpse of Rara from the middle of the forest. It will take you six days to reach and be back in Kathmandu from Rara by taking your own vehicle.
The color of Rara Lake and the crystal-clear water will make you feel calm and relaxed when you are looking at them. Personally, it was one of my favorite things during the trek.
The total cost of the trip would be somewhere around Rs. 35,000 to Rs. 40,000 if you go by road.
It’s a 5-day trek that people go on for religious as well as sightseeing purposes. This place has great religious value too, so it would be heavily crowded if you reach there during Janai Purnima time. The lake is somehow surrounded by mountains, and there are several other lakes nearby.
You will have to go to Dhunche from Kathmandu, which is a 6-hour drive. After that, you will have to walk for around 2 days to reach Gosaikunda and 1 and a half days to be back at Dhunche.
The lake looks gorgeous when it’s frozen too, and many people these days even take helicopter tours to the lake and spend 30 minutes there for a photo shoot or breakfast. A frozen lake has its own beauty, while in a regular lake you can take a bath and see the beauty of the water too. The choice is yours if you have five days to spend.
The total cost of the trip would be somewhere around Rs. 15,000 to Rs. 20,000.
As the highest-altitude lake in the world, this lake is already pretty famous. It’s located at 4919 meters and reaching there is no joke; it’s an achievement that you should celebrate. It’s on the bucket list of many Nepalese and we can see a lot of snow during good seasons. The roads to Tilicho are life-threatening at some point and you will need a strong heart to drive in such terrain.
It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and you can learn more by clicking here. The total cost of the trip would be somewhere around Rs. 30,000 to Rs. 35,000.
Mostly preferred by the people who are begging for their trek, this trek doesn’t offer any less excitement. It has not been too long since it became popular but now we see a lot of people making this trek all the time. I was so excited to see the Yak grazing when we were at the base camp and I am glad I could capture its photo.
You can complete this trek in 5 days if you start in Kathmandu and finish in Kathmandu. The trail is very clean, and there are several excellent hotels along the way. You can see beautiful mountains everywhere from the base camp. The walk is also relatively easy and safe if you are traveling solo. The total cost of the trip would be somewhere around Rs. 15,000 to Rs. 20,000.
There are many beautiful treks and this is just a list of popular places. Keep traveling and exploring new places.
