Located in a rugged mountainous region of South Asia, Nepal is a mountain lover’s paradise. The Himalayas are a focal point for hiking and provide many interesting places to hike, including the iconic route to Everest Base Camp. Nepal is pretty much the ultimate hiking destination.
The hike to Everest Base Camp at 5,362 meters is a classic and should not be overlooked, and while the journey to the summit is a tricky one, the hike to basecamp is fairly accessible. Beyond Everest, there are excellent hikes on offer in the Annapurna Massif. Annapurna sits at 8,091 meters and offers a number of different routes, like the hike to basecamp at 4,130 meters. The Makalu Base Camp Trek is also worth checking out.
