Nepal Adventure

Nepal is the place to be for adventure junkies, and naturally Mount Everest tends to be the main draw. Seeing the world’s tallest mountain is definitely a worthwhile endeavor, but there’s so much more to Nepal beyond Everest. Hiking, climbing, and mountain biking are just a few ways to have a Nepal adventure.

Even if you’re not much of a mountain climber, it’s possible to embark on a guided experience to the Mount Everest base camp. There’s nothing quite like hiking to the summit of Kala Pattar, and then watching the sun set over the world’s highest mountain. Along the way you can stop and explore Sherpa villages, and visit the ancient monasteries of Khumjung and Thyangboche. Experiencing the lifestyle of the Highland Sherpa people will be a travel moment you will never forget!

There are many hikes for your Nepal adventure, however. Gokya Lake is another breathtaking trek, with views of the Himalayas and Mount Everest, Cho Oyu, and Makalu. Here it’s also possible to learn about the lives of the Sherpa people. Explore Namche Bazaar, the central market of the Khumbu region. If possible, see the impressive Ngozumpa Glacier. An easier hiking option is trekking to Poonhill, with outstanding sunrise views over the Himalayas. See the beautiful city of Pokhara, and experience the culture of the Gurung and Magar people. You’ll be spellbound by the views of the Annapurna and Fishtail mountains.

Is mountain biking more your scene? Explore the single tracks and massive descents in Shivapuri National Park, in the Kathmandu Valley. Visit Chisapani and Nagarkot for the views over the mountain, or challenge your fitness on some steep climbs. Along the way you can visit UNESCO World Heritage listed temples and monasteries, and visit the rice fields along the valley. For something off the radar, head to Lapchi Kang, a small Himalayan range between the road to Tibet and the valley of Rowaling Himal. This place has a fascinating history: an ancient Tibetan magician by the name of Milarepa-an headed into the wilderness, retreated to live in a cave, and turned green from living off stinging nettles. A guide will take you into the heart of it all, through dense bamboo and cloud forest to untouched rock spires like Ama Bamare.

Nepal Adventure Continued...

Climbers certainly have their choice of mountains to breach, and hiring a local guide will take you into some unmarked territory. Island Peak is one of the main climbing peaks in the Everest region, and never fails to amaze people. Another option is to take a multi-day white-water rafting trip through remote Nepal. You’ll find over 120  rapids in 130 kilometres of river, and each night you’ll camp out on gorgeous beaches. You really can see and do it all in Nepal.
