Updated on August 6, 2020

I am a content writer and blogger in a digital marketing agency in Nepal where I have to do a lot of research before writing on any subject.

First of all, what do you think is trekking like in Nepal? You have to walk uphill and downhill to reach an altitude of 3000 m plus or 4500 m plus or 5500 m plus, depending on the region where you are trekking. When you are trekking in such a region, you will not be in a comfort zone; you will be either on a hill or on a valley or near a snow-covered mountain. Sometimes, you will be in a region where you can see all three of these. And in such a region, you might be affected by the altitude mountain sickness. You will also have access to the least basic needs. The greatest benefit you will have, as a trekker, is the view of the mountains; the view of the mountain ranges that will appear in front of your eyes. In addition, the culture that you see adds more information to your knowledge.

The Trekking Regions in Nepal have been listed below:

1. Rara

2. Dolpo

3. Upper Mustang

4. Annapurna

5. Everest

6. Kanchenjunga

Rara Region

When it comes to the highlights of this region, the trekking agencies of Nepal will always talk about Rara National Park, Rara Lake, and Rara Lake Trek to the trekkers.

Of all the national parks in Nepal, Rara National Park is the smallest. The park lies in two districts of Nepal, that is, Mugu and Jumla, at an altitude from 2000 m plus to 4000 m. The park has a rich diversity of 1070 species of floras. Some of the notable floras are rhododendron, fir, brown oak, birch, west Himalayan spruce, black juniper, pine, and Himalayan cypress. At the same time, the park is home to more than 200 species of birds. Some of these are Great-Crested, Black-Necked Grebes, Red-Crested Pochards, Mallard, Common Teal, and Common Merganser, including Himalayan Snow cock, Chukar Partridge, Himalayan Monal, Kalij, and Blood Pheasant.

Rara Lake Trek

This name is true to what it sounds. It takes you to the lake, which is blue, and which is surrounded by snow-covered peaks.

Dolpo Region

This region can be divided into the Upper Dolpo Region and the Lower Dolpo Region; both lie in the north-western part of Nepal. This region is untouched by what you can call even the basic facilities. Like in trekking in any parts of Nepal, you also need a permit for trekking in Dolpo, but the permit comes under the category of a special permit, and it is slightly expensive than the trekking permits of other regions. No doubt, the Dolpo Region has beautiful landscapes, but if you want to see mountains from beginning to end, please see other trekking regions of Nepal.


Upper Mustang Region

You can call this region the desert of Nepal, but it is not a sandy desert like you think generally. It is a Himalayan desert. Have you seen it ? This region is also divided into the Upper Mustang Region and the Lower Mustang Region. The former is more popular than the latter in terms of trekking.


Annapurna Region

This region is all about the beautiful view of the mountains from beginning to end. The treks you can do in this region are the world’s famous Annapurna Circuit Trek and Annapurna Base Camp Trek. During the treks, you will see the Annapurna Ranges, from Annapurna I to Annapurna IV, including other less prominent mountains.


Manaslu Region

If you want to trek in this region, then you can do only one trek, that is, Manaslu Trek. In other words, there is only one trekking trail. On the other hands, in the Everest and Annapurna Regions, there are different trekking trails, so there are different treks by different names.


Langtang Region

Langtang is the third best trekking region in Nepal. You can ask this to any travel agencies of Nepal if you want to really believe the Langtang Region is the third best trekking region of Nepal. The first and second best trekking regions they will tell you are the Everest and Annapurna regions. Langtang region does not offer you more than three treks.


Everest Region

All I can say about this region is when the trekkers trek here; they shed their tears looking at the beauties of the mountains. The world’s best hospitable service is found here; the service of the Sherpa people.


Kanchenjunga Region

This region lies in the eastern part of Nepal; this is the only eastern region where you can trek in Nepal. Its Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek and Kanchenjunga Circuit Treks are famous in the world.
