The majestic landscape of mountains, deep valleys, and glaciers beckons
Home to eight of the world’s tallest peaks, Nepal is the one country most closely identified with the Himalayas. Apart from Nepal, the majestic mountain range also straddles India, Bhutan, China and Pakistan.
A landscape of mountains, glaciers, and deep valleys as far as the eye can see, the area is a fitting backdrop for the world’s tallest mountain, Mount Everest, which stands at a whooping 8,848m above sea level. For those of you who are not physically fit for scaling mountains and intense hiking, these five treks suitable for beginners also come with snow-clad peaks, lush greenery, and shimmering glaciers. This way, you’re not missing out all that much even if you don’t conquer Everest.
