Nepal is a small country, wedged between the giants of India and Tibet (now occupied by China). Its geography is dominated by the Himalayas - eight of the fourteen highest mountains in the world, including Everest, can be found within its borders. On every side, a skyline of fluted snow and ice peaks soaring beyond the imagination rise above the trails, the campsites and valleys. Many of today's treks are ancient trade routes running between India and Tibet. The spiritual heritage which gives substance to peoples' lives all through Nepal makes them reverent, kind, hospitable and hard working. It is this that gives an added dimension to the mountains and turns a journey there into a life lasting experience. Lodge Treks In the popular areas, we stay in lodges run by friendly Sherpa hosts offering basic, comfortable accommodation and simple food.
