Nepal trekkers want the best of both worlds – the clearest Himalayan mountain views but without crowds on the trails.
Nepal (PRWEB) December 24, 2009
ITrekNepal introduces a collection of unique winter treks and activities with an emphasis on lower elevation routes and thrilling adventures into the unknown. Nepal conjures up stunning vistas of spectacular mountain scenery unlike anywhere on earth. Choosing to visit Nepal during the winter months gives a different perspective on the country and ITrekNepal have devised a series of treks and tours which are designed to give clients the best possible experience from Nepal at this time: lower elevation treks with the clearest views of the Himalayas; a chance to explore little-visited villages and cultural sights well off the beaten track; and the opportunity to combine treks with activities such as mountain biking and white water rafting that take you much deeper into the heart of Nepal.
Despite the common assumption that trekking is not good during the winter months, it is actually a fantastic time to visit Nepal. A great many of ITrekNepal's most popular trekking routes - including those in areas such as Everest and Annapurna where altitudes rise to 4,000m (13,000ft) - are still achievable during the winter whilst many of ITrekNepal's easier treks at lower elevations, especially those in the Kathmandu Valley are actually better during this time of year; clearer air equals stunning views. ITrekNepal only uses the highest quality accommodation so that even when trekking above the Kathmandu Valley during the cooler winter months you can be reassured that our excellent mountain lodges will keep you very warm and comfortable in the evenings.
"Nepal trekkers want the best of both worlds - the clearest Himalayan mountain views but without crowds on the trails. Winter is the only time of year this is possible and temperatures even then are not uncomfortable at altitudes high enough to get fantastic views," commented Andy Leonard, CEO of ITrekNepal. Indeed, if you are looking for peaceful solitude in the mountains where the only other people you see are local villagers and where picturesque paths are peacefully deserted then the winter season is the time to go.
Shorter and less-expensive ITrekNepal trips of between 7-10 days during winter provide a well-rounded experience of this fantastic trekking country with a combination of light trekking, cultural tours, village walks and countryside biking. Winter is also a great time to combine your shorter trek in Nepal with adrenaline-fuelled escapades down thundering rivers or admiring villages, cultural sites and stunning scenery from the vantage point of two wheels. Nepal offers some of the best white water rafting in the world for both beginners and the advanced. Combine your trek in Nepal with a thrilling river run to experience stunning mountain scenery, white sand beaches and a rich cultural heritage rarely seen on foot, and we are sure it will be a highlight of your trip to Nepal.
ITrekNepal provides personalised, high quality trekking services throughout the Himalayan region, including Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet; it is the only international trekking company which operates its own local ground operations in Nepal year-round. With a choice of standard or classic options to match guest's preferences there are no hidden extras - all local transport (private), meals and sleeping equipment are provided within the cost of each trek. ITrek's English-speaking guides have been carefully selected, each with many years of trek leadership experience. ITrekNepal has grown rapidly in the last two years and provides both classic Himalayan trek itineraries such as Everest and Annapurna Base Camp treks as well as unique fully-flexible 'off the beaten path' treks and tours for both individuals and groups that will provide a wealth of memories long after the holiday has is over.
