How can we reach Nepal for Trekking

Nepal is a landlocked country in South Asia. it is bordered by China in the north and India in the south, east, and west. Also, Nepal is separated only by Sikkim from Bhutan. Even though Nepal is a small country it is rich in diversity and culture. Nepal has a diverse geography including fertile plains and hilly regions with 8 of the 10 tallest mountains within its territory. Including the mighty Mount Everest. There are many factors affecting tourism in Nepal, and trekking holds the maximum authority over its activities. Since Nepal is a landlocked country, there are no waterways available to reach the country. The country has a good network of roads connecting from India. However, the Himalayas obstruct the possibility of roads from China. But there are numerous passes connecting Nepal and China. Another possible entry is by air. Nepal has a good system for domestic and international flights operating every day.

If you are able to walk with a rucksack for 4-5 hours every day, then you won’t face any difficulties. The massive Nepal earthquake of 2015 took many lives of inhabitants and tourists in Langtang. The trail is definitely repaired but the mark of the tragedy can still be seen in the village.
