What makes Wild Nepal Trekking Holidays so special?
Mustang, Manaslu, Kangchenjunga and Dolpo are just some of the evocative places that make up Wild Nepal; the regions beyond Everest and the Annapurnas that are less well-known but still offer fantastic opportunities for trekking in Nepal.
You don’t have to travel far from Kathmandu to discover some little-trekked trails. The region of Ganesh Himal is only a few hours’ drive from Kathmandu yet is a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city. With classic Himalayan scenery of high snow-peaks and deep verdant valleys, together with numerous small villages populated by small ethnic groups, trekking in Ganesh Himal provides all the wow factor of the Himalaya but without the crowds.
The Manaslu Circuit retains its allure as one of the great treks of the world and makes a superb alternative circuit trek in Nepal. Close to the Tibetan border, Manaslu is a region of spectacular scenery dominated by the towering peak of Manaslu and dotted with attractive Tibetan-style villages. Trekking the Manaslu Circuit takes you from river valley to high pass and offers sublime views of the Greater Himalaya.
A trek to Kangchenjunga is a remote and challenging adventure in Wild Nepal. It is a region of striking contrasts and culturally interesting ethnic villages. After only a day on the trail of a Kangchenjunga trek you will enjoy spectacular views of Kangchenjunga and her satellite peaks. By trekking to both the north and south base camps of Kangchenjunga it’s possible to enjoy both awe-inspiring scenery and a real sense of achievement.
Mustang, in the rain shadow of the Himalaya, is one of the few places you can go trekking in Nepal during the summer months. It has a surreal desert landscape of multi-coloured rock strata, high barren cliffs peppered with caves, isolated villages and distant snow-capped peaks that provides a real contrast to the Himalayan scenery you see elsewhere in Nepal. No Mustang treks are complete without a visit to Lo Manthang , the ancient capital of the region and home to the fabulous Tiji Festival each spring.
Trek a little further than Mustang and you will reach neighbouring Dolpo. Equally wild and remote, trekking in Dolpo is a fantastic adventure where you can expect to have the beautiful trails and incredible Himalayan scenery all to yourself.
