Nepal is widely known for being a tapestry of snow-capped giants and a wide variety of ethnic cultures. The country hosts 10 of the world's tallest mountain ranges including Mt. Everest (8848m)- the highest mountain in the world. This makes Nepal a major playground for adventurers and trekkers who prefer to experience something new and extraordinary. The proper blends of cultural and natural diversity make these trips even more special. The majority of the trekking locations like Everest and Annapurna in Nepal are quite popular and are known by many. These locations have spectacular views, proper infrastructure, and varied terrain which means that the trekking level can be suited as per the change in fitness level. This makes the trek trails extremely crowded throughout the year. However, in recent years, the preference for trips to - off the beaten path regions, over the normal hectic crowded trails has increased as well.
Although Nepal is geographically small, multiple regions haven't been explored properly yet. These locations are pretty much far away from the main center of big cities like Pokhara and Kathmandu. The uniqueness of such trips is the pristine nature, its serene beauty, and the opportunity to witness the true Nepalese culture. As such, many destinations are best suited for this purpose (Off the Beaten).
