The last time I did any serious trekking was in 2008 when I went to Vietnam. We spent five days hiking through the lush green rice paddys. It was an amazing experience.
To satisfy my much needed desire to go trekking again I don my walking shoes and walk anywhere I can. And that happens to be the many streets of Bangkok. But this is not real trekking. It’s simply walking. Walking a long way but still simply walking; I just like to say I hiked or trekked somewhere, it sounds more impressive that just walking.
One of these days I will embark on more trekking. It’s something I love to do. To be out in the fresh air, testing your endurance, seeing wonderful sights along the way. It really is a wonderful feeling.
Now, Nepal is a country that I have wanted to go to for a while. I have heard only good things about this place. For one thing, it’s home to the highest mountain on earth; Mount Everest’s peak is 8,848 metres above sea level. It’s also the birthplace of the Lord Buddha and the land of the yeti. Who wouldn’t want to go and experience what Nepal has to offer.
That’s where Himalaya Trekking Team come in.
The company was established in 2010 and is owned and operated by experienced guides with many years of trekking under their belt. The company offers itself as an “authentic and reliable trekking agency,” and is one of the leading trekking companies in Nepal.
My friend, Uttam Adhikari, co-founder and executive director of Himalaya Trekking Team, tells me:
“All of the team members are very familiar with the nature and culture of Nepal. We strive to instill respect for our country and its sacred mountains. We take pride in doing our part to preserve its natural beauty; the way of life of its people and its rich cultural heritage.
The Himalaya Trekking Team is dedicated to providing excellent and personalized service. Together with you, we carefully plan and supply all the information necessary for your safety, comfort and enjoyment.”
Himalaya Trekking Team offer a number of trekking and tour packages in Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet. Trekking is not the only adventure you can embark on. They also have bungee jumping, rafting, mountain biking and jungle safaris on offer.
The website gives lots of information about the different countries and the treks and tours available in each one. You can find out what’s included and what’s not included for individual tours, group size, the difficulty of the trek and trip highlights. There is also information about the types of trekking available and when the best time of year is to go.
But don’t take my word for it check out the website for yourselves. If you have never been trekking before and want to embark on a new adventure, or you are a seasoned trekker but not in this part of the world feel free to contact them for more information before you decide. They will help you plan and get the most out of your trip.
