Your Nepalese tour guide

With some of the tallest mountains in the world, Nepal is guaranteed to satisfy the most adventurous amongst us. But trekking through some of the most unforgiving landscapes in the world can pose its challenges, which means hiring a tour guide is always a good idea. Not only do guides help keep you safe throughout your trek, but they also provide unique insights into local culture and customs. Specific benefits of your local tour guide include:

  • Reducing the impact of language barriers
  • Supporting the local economy 
  • Easily arranging porters on your behalf
  • Navigating roadblocked routes 

TourRadar offers the widest selection of tours with both global and local tour operators, each with their own unique itineraries. Choose from experienced global operators like Intrepid Travel and G Adventures or opt for local Nepalese operators like Nepal Hiking Pvt Ltd.

Nepal is an excellent location for trekking regardless of your skill level. If you're a beginner when it comes to trekking, there are trails that can accommodate your needs that are situated at lower altitudes and with more comfortable accommodation along the way. Regardless of what trail you select, you're always guaranteed to encounter stunning views of the Himalayas and rich local culture. If you're new to trekking in Nepal we would suggest one of the following routes to start building your hiking resume:

  • Helambu Trek – 9 days
  • Langtang Valley Trek – 7 days
  • Panchase Trek – 4 days
  • The Royal Trek – 4 days
  • Annapurna Community Eco-Lodge Trek – 5 days
  • Solu Trek – 6 days
Should you decide you're experienced enough to attempt a more challenging trail, TourRadar offers guided tours that include every difficulty level. 

Short treks in Nepal

Short treks are an excellent option for visitors to Nepal who are keen to experience the Himalayas but who may not have a lot of time to spend trekking. Below you will find a variety of hikes that last no longer than 7 days and range across a variety of regions within Nepal. 

Langtang region
This area is known for lower elevations and is easily accessible from Kathmandu. The region is also known for its scenic mountains and monasteries. 

Helambu Trek – 5 days
Not far from Kathmandu, the Helambu area has plenty of trails that will allow trekkers to pick a route that suits them, but the Hemalbu trek, in particular, doesn’t require crazy levels of fitness or experience. 

Langtang Valley Trek – 7 days
The Langtang valley trek is one of the best options if you're looking to see snowcapped mountain peaks and glaciers. Only 19 km north of Kathmandu, it’s easily accessible!

Annapurna Region
This region is best known for its impressive views, high passes and cosy guesthouses.   

Panchase Trek – 4 days
Beginning with a boat ride across Lake Phewa, this trail is another great Himalayan trek for beginners, and only requires a few hours of walking every day. You'll have plenty of time to explore the Nepalese way of life in the surrounding villages.

The Royal Trek – 4 days
Often used by Nepalese royalty, this trail snakes through the foothills of Annapurna just north of Pokhara Valley and is easily accessible thanks to its proximity to the city. Perfect for trekkers that are looking to escape the crowds and who are craving a more local experience. 

Annapurna Community Eco-Lodge Trek – 5 days
The five-day Poon Hill trek is perfect if you're an experienced trekker, while the Annapurna Community Eco-Lodge Trek is the same length and more achievable for beginners. You’ll still enjoy incredible views, but you can ditch the crowds and the steps.
