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.

5. Prashar Lake Trek

One of the most suitable Himalayan treks for beginners, the Prashar Lake trek overlooks the Dhauladhar Range, passes through dense forests, local villages, and stunning rivers, before concluding at the Prashar Lake nestled away mysteriously amidst the enchanting peaks of the Himalayan Range. The lake sits at a height of 2730m above sea level, and there’s even a three-storied pagoda-like templed built in the thirteenth century right beside it.
