One of the highlights of trekking in Nepal is quite contrary to popular belief. In many parts of the world trekking in the wilderness usually means it is you alone in the middle of wild uncharted territory with no help at hand in case of emergency. It is here that the beauty of Nepal emerges as one of the prime trekking zones where you would be in the midst of wilderness but never far away from people. All along the trekking routes you would find local people traveling to and fro as well as a large number of tourists out on a similar mission such as yours.
Tourists will be able to find abundant companies both local and foreign, who will organize an environmentally conscious and ethically based mountaineering and trekking tours, and wilderness expeditions. With the help of these companies tourists can organize their own groups of likeminded people, to enhance their trekking experience. Some of the most popular and preferred trekking circuits in Nepal include:
