>> << Camping in Nepal
The Himalayas are not just for
mountaineers and very experienced ice climbers and trekkers. They offer a range
of treks to suit all aptitudes and abilities, from a modest hike in the
foothills to more challenging high altitude treks. Trekking through the
Himalayas is a unique opportunity to rediscover the rhythms of nature so easily
forgotten in the west. On the camping trek, we get up and go to bed with the
daylight, and relax in warm sunshine after leisurely lunch. Rest stops simply
happen because there are some Yaks grazing to watch, or because of tempting
teahouse at the top Of a long hill. Anyone who lives an active life and is in
good health will enjoy a trekking within the Himalayas.
Nepal is singularly blessed
with marvelous and impressive trekking & camping country. It is home to eight of
the world's ten highest peaks. Only by hiking the ancient foot trails that link
the remote village communities can one gain access to these Himalayan giant
peaks. The range of scenery, from sub-tropical jungle to glacier, is as varied
as the many ethnic groups cultural heritage. It is not only the mountains that
cast their spell. The people, the flora and fauna and the immense landscape
combine in a kaleidoscope of sights and sensations that make a camping trip
among the Himalayas a unique experience.

Nepal is one of the
poorest, least developed countries in the world with over half of its
population living below the poverty line. Over 80% of the population
relies on agriculture for their livelihood. It was only 1949 that Nepal
opened its frontiers to foreigners. All early attempts at climbing
Everest were made from Tibet on the North face of the peak. The
much-discussed 1924 attempt by George Mallory and Andrew Irvine was also
on the north was also on this face. Last The majority of the population
lives in rural areas that are often very difficult to reach, resulting
in a lack of basic infrastructure such as clean water, telephone service
and schools. Political instability continues to challenge Nepal's
ability to improve its infrastructure.
