Mostly, we begin this trekking with a short flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. But some people like to begin this trekking from Jiri. This is the most classical way of beginning this trek.

The weather condition in Lukla sometimes gets disturbed due to bad weather conditions. Trekkers are found waiting for favorable weather conditions even for 3-4 days. So, we have to have some spare days if we are going to the Everest Region.

2. Gokyo Lake View Trek

This trek takes us to Gokyo Lake, a freshwater lake in Gokyo Valley in the Everest region. There are 6 different lakes including Lake Gokyo.

Gokyo Ri is a popular vantage point in the Everest Region which offers us astounding views of the entire mountain range in the Khumbu region including Mt. Everest.

This is a short, easy but rewarding trek in the Annapurna region in Nepal. The trek via the lush green rhododendron forest will be a very pleasant walk. Picturesque country settlements and terraced fields will lure everyone in this trek.

Poor hill is a popular vantage point in this trekking. We climb Poonhill early in the morning. We wait for the sunrise. The combination of the first fall of sun rays and the snow-fed mountain including Annapurna massif, Machhapuchhre, Gangapurna, Himchuli, Ganesh Himal, Manaslu, and other minor peaks will be astonishing.

This is a less crowded and less beaten area trekking in Nepal. This remote and restricted area trekking takes us to the border of Tibet where one can experience the Tibetan lifestyle too. Tibetan plateaus, cliffs, gorges, holy caves and monasteries, terraced fields, and most significantly, mountain views including the eighth highest mountain in the world, Mount Manasalu will be mesmerizing to witness.

The solitary and wilderness lovers find this trekking rewarding. This trekking is also known as one of the adventurous trekking trails in Nepal as one has to cross Larkya La Pass which is one of the highest passes in the world.
