Why a trip to Nepal?

Everest, Annapurna, but also Manaslu and Langtang. Nepal, home to eight of the world’s ten highest peaks, is a true paradise for mountain enthusiasts. However, a journey to Nepal isn’t just about extreme mountaineering; it also offers the opportunity for trekking in spectacular valleys, discovering the surprising Nepalese culture starting from its capital, Kathmandu, as well as getting closer to the sources of Hinduism and Buddhism. In short, in Nepal, everyone can find something to delight in during their journey, whether you’re a seasoned athlete or someone who prefers to admire monuments.

A perhaps lesser-known aspect of Nepal is the presence of different climates and environments, even within a country of relatively limited size. The region of the great mountains, in fact, occupies only 15% of the total land area, while the remaining portion is divided between the plain bordering India where about half of the population lives, and a hilly zone. Nepal is also the country of the Ganges, the great river around which the entire life of the country revolves. From a naturalistic standpoint, Nepal is undoubtedly one of the must-visit destinations for mountain lovers, a country that will astonish you.

Nepal lives in symbiosis with its mountains, to the extent that it’s one of the global hubs of mountaineering. The ascent to the Everest Base Camp, the Annapurna circuits, and the shorter ones like Chisapani Nagarkot are truly unique activities. Yet, in Nepal, you can also indulge in mountain biking, birdwatching, and everything that allows you to immerse yourself in nature. As mentioned, however, Nepal also has a strong spiritual side, with the majority Hindu monasteries in Kathmandu serving as evidence. The country is dotted with sacred places. Moreover, Nepal is also one of the gateways to Tibet.

Turning to the safety of a trip to Nepal, it must be said that it’s a safe country. Of course, due caution should be exercised in crowded places like Kathmandu, where a miscreant might be present. The safety issue in Nepal is more related to the activities you intend to undertake. The real risk is arriving unprepared for overly challenging routes or without the appropriate gear. When booking an excursion among the numerous local operators, always verify what is included in the price, what equipment is provided, and if the people you’re dealing with seem knowledgeable.

Apply to the right local agency in Nepal

For the Nepalese economy, tourism is the most important source of income. As previously mentioned, there are numerous local entities that offer services to tourists, although not all are of an acceptable standard. Therefore, it becomes very important to choose the right one. Relying on unprepared individuals to climb Everest just to save a few dollars is definitely not a good idea. My Nepalese contact is among the best in the country; the feedback from travelers who have turned to him is really positive. His team consists of very kind individuals who understand travelers’ needs and always know what they’re doing.
