What’s the difference between trekking, hiking and mountain climbing? You can do all three activities in Nepal, but they are quite different things. Trekking is a multi-day walk, where you stay overnight (or several nights) at the place you’ve walked to. Hiking generally refers to a one-day walk. It might be two hours or eight, but if it takes place within a single day, it’ll probably be referred to as a hike. Mountain climbing is another thing entirely. It takes special equipment, training and comes with more risk. Neither trekking nor hiking require any special skill, other than the ability to walk.
Why should I go trekking in Nepal? In the whole world, there are fourteen mountains above 8000 metres; Nepal is home to eight of them, so you’ll be treated to great views. Also, the country is set up well for trekking, with abundant affordable lodges. Trekking in Nepal is also cheap, generally lower than in other countries where trekking is popular, such as New Zealand or Japan. Finally, Nepal is safe. Sure, accidents happen–earthquakes, freak weather events–and some dodgy characters exist, like anywhere. It’s never a good idea to trek solo. But on the whole, crime and violent crime in Nepal is very low.

I did a 3 day hike and had a fantastic time! Nimesh took care of everything and was able to arrange last minute permits for my trip. All was organized perfectly and I had a very good guide that adapted to my walking speed, explained me about the plants and animals and answered all my questions about the Nepalese culture. I can definitely recommend TapoBhumi!
