Nepal is probably the one country in the world, which offers in a quite small space a varied range of trekking routes. Since time immemorial, people here have been travelling the distances between individual settlements on foot, because for the development of more convenient roads which can be traveled with modern vehicles, the terrain is just too rugged.

The highest peak in the world lured climbers from all around the world already centuries ago, and led to a today quite high construction density of mountain cabins (lodges), and other accommodation facilities. We offer for your Nepal trekking a range of tracks, from which tours can be arranged, customized to your fitness level and your areas of interest. Common to all is the view of the mighty white mountain peaks and impressive panoramas, that will let every traveler reverently stop in his tracks.
