Home to many of the world’s tallest mountain peaks, and with a diverse topography, Nepal has become a renowned trekking location, in large part due to Mt Everest, and a number of high Himalayan peaks. But there are many incredible activities across Nepal, suited to people of all preferences, and sense of adventure!
If you are looking to add some adventure and a magical destination to your bucket list, you need to think about Nepal. This complex oasis of mountains, valleys, ancient towns and varied culture had been one of my top destinations for many years. Far off the beaten path, Nepal is like entering into an ancient world that has been at a standstill for all of time.

Despite the sense of wonder and adventure associated with a trek through the Himalayas, the journey does not have to be as rough as you would think. Surprisingly, trekking in Nepal does not have to involve any camping. Due to the frequency of small villages and “tea houses” along many popular hiking paths, most visitors and trekkers stay the night in small hotels or guest houses which provide a comfortable stay, meals, and even toilets.
So, if we’re not camping, then what do we need? Some basic outdoor equipment is necessary, as are good shoes and clothing for multiple climates. We’re talking about the Himalayas, where high altitudes can mean cold weather and rain (but not always). Food and water are also readily available, but a reusable water bottle and water purifiers can save you some cash along the way, too.
Nepal is mesmerizing and beautiful. It is a land of peaceful mountain people who welcome travelers into their homes and show them the serenity of the land and the friendliness of the nation. During our year-long trip around the world, we spent a month in Nepal. During that time, we spent almost three weeks hiking through the Himalayas, and it was one of the best experiences of our life.
