Trekking is an outdoor recreational activity that is more rigorous and more challenging than hiking. It tests our physical ability, endurance, mental or psychological capacity. Unlike Hiking which is a single day activity which requires little planning and organization and involves taking a trail to the top of a mountain or gentle prairie along river or creek, Trekking is an act of walking for long distances for several days with lodging and food stops. Trekking requires much more planning and organization so trekking is much more commercial.
The diversity of trekking in Nepal cannot be found in any other region of the world. Trekking is between hiking and mountaineering regarding difficulty, although it’s more similar to hiking. The difference being that treks are longer than hikes.
Nepal has attracted trekkers from around the world since the 1960s when Col Jimmy Robert’s organized the first commercial trek.
An easy trek with Nepali support (guide/porter) and teahouse accommodation is quite attainable for anyone who is reasonably fit.
The Everest and Annapurna regions are the two most popular areas for trekking, but there are a number of other regions that hold some of the best treks in Nepal. Mid of September to mid of December is considered the best time to trek in Nepal. Autumn is considered the best season to trek in Nepal. You can experience better visibility of tantalizing mountains, green hills, and excellent weather. Weather is generally clear with mild to warm days and cold nights.
