5 easy treks in Nepal

Treks in Nepal are categorized as easy, moderate, difficult and strenuous based on the trails remoteness, terrain, altitude and technicality (gears or experience required). All treks in Nepal involve climbing up and down the valley basin on rough beaten paths. Higher the altitude, all factors like weather, terrain, comfort and breathing makes the trek tougher.
Easy treks in this list are in easy access from cities, moderate in altitude, have more predictable weather, less undulating paths and have comfortable lodges or resorts for accommodation.

What are easy treks in Nepal like?

Easy treks in Nepal involve continuous walks for about 4 – 5 hrs a day. Trek may involve climbing of about 100 – 400 m or longer downhill and ranges between the altitude of 1,500 m to 3500 m. Large sections of the trails are safe and wide (not vertiginous ) but are still rough and uneven beaten paths with occasional stone paved and steps. Because of easy treks’ proximity with big cities, comfortable lodges or resorts are available for accommodation.

How fit do you need to be for an easy trek ?

A reasonably fit and active person of all ages can do an easy trek in Nepal. If you jog or walk regularly and did enjoy your last hike or bush walking, you can do these treks. Easy treks are about enjoying the surroundings, taking breaks at nice spots and walking at your own pace. But if you train yourself before the trek, you will enjoy the trek more. Jogging, cycling and hiking will help to strengthen the muscles and also increase stamina.

February Tour Review

Fantastic first time visit

Our family recently toured Kathmandu, Nagarkot, Bhaktapur, Pokhara and Chitwan using the services of Rabindra and iTourNepal. Everything was fantastic—from initial communications via email to tailoring activities to appeal to a 9-year old. Rabi arranged for us to have lunch and visit a raptor rescue and parahawking center in Pokhara because we expressed interested in birdwatching. When we mentioned that that one member of our party was a professional chef, Rabi arranged for us to have lunch and a tour of an organic farm outside of Bhaktapur. .....
We found Rabi and his associates to be punctual, flexible, knowledgeable and kind—in fact, perfect hosts for a perfect 10-day vacation. 'i Tour Nepal' particularly specializes in personalized small group tours, and we can not recommend them highly enough.
