Trekking Nepal Himalayas have a long history of attracting trekkers, mountaineers, pilgrims and ascetics alike. Since trekking Nepal Himalays time immemorial its icy beauty and rugged heights, crowned with snow and draped in vast glaciers have drawn people to pit their courage and ingenuity against its dangerous challenge.
Trekking Nepal Himalays,as we descend below the snowline at 5,400m and continue descending, nature slowly relinquishes that austere magnificence of the heights and presents us with a different world of cascading waterfalls, lush green forests, flower laden meadows and an ever increasing variety of flora and fauna can be explore on trekking Nepal Himalayas.
During the Trekking Nepal Himalayas trekkers has an unique oppertunity to visit the rivers flow clear blue and icy cold. Small villages and hamlets nestle in the valleys with their diverse local customs, dances, folklore and architecture. The people are as vibrant as their surroundings and although they may look at us with curiosity, are in many cases blissfully unaware of the sometimes dubious benefits of modern civilization on trekking Nepal Himalayas.
Trek Nepal Himalayas since ancient times, people have climbed into these inhospitable heights, these first mountaineers - whether ascetics, pilgrims, traders, hunters or shepherds - had no special training or climbing techniques, but acquired a high degree of skill from necessity and constant practice, skills that have been preserved and made the local people world famous for their capabilities in the mountains.
Trekking Nepal Himalaya having to cross the mountain passes at heights ranging from 1,500 m to 5,800 m, they designed ingenious equipment, clothing and cooking methods using local materials to help them combat the intense cold and negotiate the treacherous snow and ice.
Trekking Nepal Himalayas offer much more enjoyable nowadays and with the development of lightweight equipment and clothing and a booming tourist infrastructure it has become comparatively easy. There are treks available to suit every one capability, difficult, easy, long and short.
As the infrastructure develops, use of vehicles, helicopters and aircraft are allowing people to access and explore parts of the Himalayas more easily, and can ease the logistical Burdon considerably on trekkers (allowing you to fly to Lukla for example), but they are an expensive and unsatisfactory substitute for walking which is the only way you can still find people in remote mountain villages that maintain the age old traditions and have not changed for generations.
Stan Armington (fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and author of Lonely Planet guides to Nepal and Bhutan) has rightly said that: "Trekking is neither a wilderness experience nor is it a climbing trip". Even at a height of 3,600m (12,000ft) to 4300 m (14,000ft) in secluded valleys, there are small village settlements, and the nomadic shepherds and Gujjars that tend their flocks of sheep and goats or herds of Yaks.
As a result, there are always people on the trail to guide and help you. Articles of daily necessity are also available in the small hamlets. Even in the remote areas one can easily mix with the people and "live off the land". Most westerners find it difficult to comprehend this aspect of trekking in Nepal Himalayas and think their trips will be the same as those organized in the national parks or wilderness areas of their respective countries where one can quickly find oneself considerably more isolated than in parts of the Himalayas.
Trekking Nepal Himalayas almost all the Himalayan valleys are full of rural settlements with the population gradually thinning out with the rise in altitude. One always finds people on the trekking trails and as a result there is no lack of information about trekking routes and directions. Hill people are traditionally very hospitable and this adds a pleasure to trekking in the Himalayas that is hard to find anywhere else.
Some people believe that trekking Nepal Himalayas is a climbing trip where they have to negotiate rocky cliffs, thick jungles and uncharted routes, but this is not so. In almost all Himalayan regions, the local people have very well developed trails. There are old established routes from one village to the other, between adjoining mountain pastures and even across well defined high altitude passes. Locals use these for everyday life, to go to school, go to markets, travel from one valley to another for trade, for cultural exchanges and religious activities.
At trekking Nepal Himalays the high mountain trails and passes normally do not require any mountaineering skills or artificial climbing aids. Of course, in places, they are covered with snow and some may even have crevasses. However, these obstacles can usually be crossed without the aid of mountaineering equipment like ropes and pitons, and if not, the locals know when to avoid them. Of all the thousands of Nepalese Himalayan trekking trails available, there are only a few difficult ones which need technical mountaineering knowledge, or equipment.
Trekking is less demanding and arguably more enjoyable than climbing peaks and offers some truly spectacular scenic beauty. The Himalayan region, till now, has been comparatively less affected by modern urban civilization with its industrial pollution, and destruction of the environment. Trekking Nepal Himalays provides an opportunity to be in natural surroundings and get away from the milling crowds and relentless pace of cities and "modern" life.
The trekker usually returns home rejuvenated, and with new found enthusiasm to once again take up the challenges of their life, and above all, with some truly unforgettable memories that will accompany them for the rest of their days.
