Tourism is one of the biggest industries supporting the economy of Nepal. The attractions visited with a Nepal tour package may help travellers understand the rich culture or see the natural beauty of the country. Almost the entire nation is spread across the mighty Himalayas and that is the reason for its enchanting realm. The nation is home to high peaks, rivers, glaciers, valleys and lakes. Numerous quaint villages exist deep in the mountains that have their own culture. Availing Nepal trekking tours are a good means to journey into the Himalayas and see all these things. Gokyo Lakes and Annapurna Circuit are the three most popular hikes in the country.
The Gokyo Lake system comprises six main and 13 minor glacial ponds, lying between elevations of 15000 feet and 16000 feet above sea level. Hindus believe that the area is the home of Naga Devta, the serpent deity. A Nepal tour package, taking visitors to the lake system, may also take them to the Mount Everest Base Camp. Such hikes usually begin from the village of Lukla or Monjo, higher up. From either of these two places, trekkers ascend to Namche Bazaar, where they usually spend a day to acclimatise. Ahead on the journey, travellers cross the settlements of Tengboche, Dingboche, Deboche and Lobuche. From Lobuche, the hiking group reaches the Everest Base Camp and then it descends towards the lakes.
Nepal trekking tours, taking travellers around the Annapurna Range of the Himalayas, are also highly popular. Depending on the organiser, the total route-length of the expedition varies between 150 km and 230 km. It normally begins from Besisahar, taking travellers through Bhulbhule, Ghermu, Danakyu, Chame, Pisang and Manang. After acclimatising in Manang, trekkers move towards the lush and picturesque meadow of Yak Kharka, and then to the Thorong Phedi village. The next camping spot of the excursion is Thorong La, an approximately 17770-feet high mountain pass. Some travel agencies take visitors to Muktinath as it is close to the pass. Post paying homage at the temple or directly from Thorong La, hikers make their way downhill to Jomsom and then to Tatopani.
