2. Annapurna Circuit

The Annapurna Circuit is one of the greatest treks in Nepal, if not the world. This classic circuit trek is a fabulously diverse and especially beautiful journey.

The scenery quickly changes as you gain altitude from tropical forest to hiking in anxious snow among amazing snow peaks.

4. Langtang Trek

Langtang valley is like paradise surrounds by the elevated Himalayan peaks. This valley is often said as “the valley of glacial masses trekking” where you can visit Himalayan glaciers from a lower altitude place. It also offers pine woodland forests, serene mountain streams, lush green slopes, and an overall delightful experience. This valley is inside the enclave of Langtang National Park.

5. Manaslu Circuit

This trek in the shadow of the eighth highest mountain in the world is the perfect alternative to the neighboring Annapurna Circuit. It has equally spectacular Himalayan scenery, an abundance of wildlife, and tea house accommodation.

7. Upper Mustang

The Upper Mustang Trek is all about exploring the hidden world of the ancient Buddhist kingdom of Mustang. It can’t get much more remote.
