Experience Trekking in Nepal trips to Everest, Annapurna with expert trekking guide, Mr. Prem/ Badri Pant serving satisfied trekkers since 1999.
Trekking to Nepal is popular among the Himalayan lovers and trekkers around the world. Nepal is sandwiched between India and Tibet (China), centring on ~84 oE ~26 oN. The country is roughly rectangular with a length of 880km and breadth of just 200km. The altitude ranges from 60m above sea level in the south to Everest’s 8 848m in the north.
This huge altitude range has a dramatic effect on climate, weather patterns and temperatures – which greatly affect the trekking regions and the best times for treks. 80% of Nepal’s rain falls during the Monsoon Season: ~ mid June to mid September. From December-February, it can be bitterly cold at high altitudes.
The sandwich was created by the, ongoing, northward tectonic thrust of India under Asia (begun ~60 million years ago). The upward thrust of the Himalayan chain has been most rapid in the last two million years. Today, India continues to move north and under Asia at ~50mm/year and the mountains rise at ~4mm/year. (The recent earthquakes shifted Everest ‘back southeast’ 30mm!).
17% of the whole 2 800km Himalayan – Karakorum Range is covered with glaciers. The melt water feeds ten of Asia’s great rivers and over 1¼ billion people in the surrounding countries. (2, 2% of the Alps are covered in ice.) Trekking in Nepal have more packages with different region such as Everest Region, Annapurna Region, Manaslu Region and so on. Each region have packages among them Everest Base Camp Trek and Annapurna Base Camp Trek are the popular packages of trekking.
Mt Everest is situated along the Mahalangur Himal in the Khumbu Region of north eastern Nepal. The range forms part of Nepal’s border with Tibet. The people of this region are Sherpas, who also inhabit the Solu and Helambu regions south of the mountain chain.
Manaslu is in the Gorkha District in central Nepal, east of the Annapurnas. The mountain and its satellites stand south of the border and the Budhi Gandaki that drains the region. Between border and river, are two Buddhist communities, speaking different dialects. To the east is the secluded Tsum Valley, home to a third community for ~800 years. These groups have had minimal contact with Nepal and still trade with Tibet.
