About Trekking

The best way to experience Nepal’s exotic combination of natural beauty and cultural diversity is to walk through them. Nepal, the country with a difference, where the rhythm of life is elegantly slow and the way of life is traditional, cultured and unsophisticated. Nature has bestowed Nepal at her best with high mountains, green lush valleys and mighty rivers. So explore Nepal, perhaps the only country of its type in the world with Shiva Treks & Expeditions–the country’s immense contrast in altitudes and climate–an equally spectacular mix of life-styles, vegetation, diversified culture and tradition of various ethnic groups of the country. There is no country in the world more apparent in diversity, more cultured, varied and interesting than Nepal. Trekking in Nepal follows the similar trails that have captured the imaginations of mountaineers and explorers for over 5 decades. Most of the trails follow a range between 500 to 3000 m and pass through the cultivated landscapes and unchanged village settlements, which offers the glimpse of Nepal’s fascinating culture and unchanged customs and traditions. Trekkers will have the privilege to closely observe the remote mountain villages that embrace many ethnic groups. Trekking in Nepal obviously means being accompanied by the picturesque valleys, beautiful terraced landscapes and the majestic snow capped mountain. And always in the background, the icy pinnacles of the Himalaya loom over the scenery.

  • Makalu Region

    Makalu is a rarely visited gem. It’s considered one of the toughest 8000m peaks to climb – even the great Edmund Hillary failed twice. But the wilderness around it is just waiting to be explored by the intrepid trekker prepared to forgo the comforts of teahouse treks. The camping trail to Makalu Base Camp from the south is considered one of the tougher routes in Nepal, and you’re more likely to have the company of birds than fellow hikers. This is even more the case if you intend to trek the Great Himalaya Trail from Kanchenjunga over to Everest: be prepared for a combination of cross-country and mountaineering to cross into the upper Barun Valley and then over the high passes of the gruelling Three Cols, which take you to almost 6200m.

  • Everest Region

    The Everest region is located in the northeast of Nepal. The 10-day walk through the middle hills of Solu to the higher altitudes of Khumbu to the base of Sagarmatha, or Mt. Everest, the world’s highest peak, is an opportunity to observe and participate in the daily life of the legendary Sherpa people. The prime attraction – the 8,848 m peak of Mt. Everest – lies in Sagarmatha National Park, which is also home to two other eight thousanders – Lhotse and Cho Oyu – besides several other prominent peaks above 6,000 m.

    Designated as a World Heritage Site in 1979, much of the 1,148 sq. km park lies above 3,000 m. The park is composed of rugged terrain with deep gorges, glaciers and huge rocks. The vegetation in the park changes from pine, hemlock, fir, juniper, birch, rhododendron and shrubs to alpine plants and then to bare rock and snow. It is home to the ghoral, tahr, serow and musk deer as well as the impeyan pheasant, blood pheasant, red-billed chough and the yellow-billed chough.
