Nepal Hiking & Trekking
Nepal is a wonderland of cultural discovery and phenomenal high mountain trekking, truly a hiker's paradise. With long hiking routes through the Himalayas (17+ days), Nepal offers adventurous visitors the opportunity to combine mountain trekking, sightseeing, cultural discovery, and natural interpretation in ways that are world-famous and truly unforgettable.
We offer the most iconic trips, like Everest Basecamp and the Annapurna Base Camp, as well as more obscure routes that will take you off the beaten path into the heart of the wild Himalayas. All of our Nepal hiking trips feature lodging in Tea Houses and U.S. and local guides, porters and support staff.

"This trek was the most incredible experience I have ever had. The guides and porters were amazing. I’m not sure if I left a piece of me in Nepal or I brought a piece of Nepal home with me. I do know for sure that I am forever changed for the better because of this experience."

More About Trekking Nepal
Why a Nepal Hiking Vacation?
Nepal is probably the world's most famous trekking destination, and for good reason. It's also home to the world's tallest mountain range, the Himalayas. What Nepal offers is a world of extreme mountain beauty laced with hiking paths that connect a web of relatively primitive, high alpine Buddhist and Hindu villages. It would be difficult to intentionally design a more perfect mountain trekking, cultural tourism destination. As we hike, we are constantly in awe of the soaring, glaciated Himalayan peaks that surround us; the deep, roaring river canyons that cross our path; and the charming, rustic cultures that host us at night. Nepal is a trekker's dream!
Hike Nepal with a Guide?
Whether it's on a hike to Everest Base Camp, Annapurna Base Camp, or another famous Nepal trek, you can hike on your own or with a guide. The advantages of going with a guide company, like Wildland Trekking, are many:
- You will be trekking with local, expert guides and support staff, which allows for a fulfilling cultural experience, and contributes significantly to the local economies.
- We handle all of the complicated logistics of planning a Nepal hike, including permits, local transportation, porters, meals, gear, teahouse accommodations and more.
- The Himalayas are dangerous and with an expert, professional hiking company you will enjoy an increased level of safety. Also, in the case of an emergency, guide companies have systems in place to effectively care for and evacuate guests.
- You will learn a tremendous amount about the natural and cultural history of the region, which is for many guests a major highlight.
Everest Base Camp or Annapurna Base Camp?
Two of the most famous treks in Nepal are Everest Base Camp and Annapurna Base Camp. If you're deciding between the two, it's important to understand the key differences. Annapurna is easier to get to logistically. Everest Base Camp has more buddhist monasteries. Everest Base Camp reaches a higher elevation. Everest Base Camp is quite a bit more difficult, Annapurna Base Camp quite a bit easier (although still strenuous by most standards). Both are absolutely stunning journeys through the Himalayas, and will leave you mesmerized by the beauty of Nepal.
