Blessed with enchanting landscapes and heavenly mountain ranges, Nepal has a lot to offer people who seek adventure and experience. Trekking in Nepal allows you to explore the beautiful nature, flora and faunas residing on the highs and lows of trekking trails. The heavenly mountains and snow peaked Himalayas residing in Nepal provide your soul and body with both a positive spark and with divinity. Trekking in mountainous regions and adventure are synonymous with each other, as you get an adventure of a lifetime on the trail leading to the Himalayas. Nepal is also sometimes referred to as a trekker’s paradise. Trekking adventures in Nepal started in 1949, when a British adventurer, Bill Tilman, made treks to various regions of Nepal, including Kali Gandaki, Helambu and the Everest Region. His exploits of these treks are described in ‘Nepal Himalaya’, a mountaineering classic that has been reprinted by the Seattle Mountaineers as a part of the Tilman Collection. Another visitor was Maurice Herzog, who led a French expedition to the base of Mount Everest. After opening its frontiers to the outside world in 1949, ten out of fourteen peaks ranging above 8000 m were ascended within eight years of opening. Annapurna (8091 m) was the first peak to be climbed in 1950, which was followed by Everest (8848 m) in 1953 by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay (the latter often referred to as Sherpa Tenzing) and Nanga Parbat (8125 m). The number of expeditions multiplied every year and, by 1964, all giant mountains had been ascended. In 1965, Colonel Jimmy Roberts, a former Gurkha Officer and Military Attaché, realized that establishing trekking company in Nepal would appeal to tourists and so he launched the first trekking company, ‘Mountain Travel Trekking Agency’ in Nepal, which remained as the solo trekking agency for the next four years. He made Nepal and the Himalayas available to a wide community and trekking became an immediate success. ‘Mountain Travel’ prospered and became an inspiration to other Nepalese tourism entrepreneurs. Today, trekking agencies are mushrooming, helping the adventure of trekking in Nepal. Today, you will find more trekkers than climbers, due to the lifetime experience and adventure which trekking on the mountainous regions provides.
