The prospect of climbing to the highest peak in the world is something that will either excite the hell out of you, or scare the hell out of you.
Either way, a trekking holiday to Nepal is a great idea for an adventurous trip away.
Situated in between India and China, Nepal is home to some of the world’s greatest mountains, and of course the highest peak in the world: Mt Everest.
Nepal in itself is a country that has much to offer.
While it struggles with the deficiencies brought on by over population, poverty and political controversies, the Nepalese people are quite friendly, good-hearted and very welcoming of all tourists.
It is not uncommon for people to fall in love with the nation and its culture.
When it comes to trekking, Nepal is a world leader, not surprisingly.
Any footwear, hiking gear, or organized tours can be achieved, and the best part is they are all offered at a dirt cheap price!
The biggest decision for any trekker is how far to go. Do you go all the way to the top of Mt Everest? Half way? Or just to the foothills for a scenic hike?
These are questions you have to ask the party you are traveling with, and it is very important not to underestimate the difficulties you will face on the trek.
Whether or not you decide to go all the way to Everest, you will be blown away by some of mother natures finest offerings in the form of the Himalayas.
