Top Five Best Himalayan View Treks

Nepal, despite its small size, is home to a third of the 2400 km of the Himalayas. Including Everest, Nepal has eight of the world’s 14 peaks above 8,000 meters. Although the total number of peaks in Nepal is a matter of confusion, it includes dozens of peaks above 7,000 meters and 6,000 meters and countless smaller ones. Only the trails here go higher than Europe’s highest peak. And so Nepal welcomes tens of thousands of trekkers every year.

Here’s our pick of five best Himalayan view treks for the best Himalayan views in Nepal.

Poonhill Ghorepani Trek

It’s an entry-level trek into the mountains, but with its incredible mountain views, it also gives treks the best bang for their buck. The trek can be completed in just four days, but we suggest you spend a week here to fully absorb the experience. As it does not go above 3,500m, it is suitable for beginners. Passing through the beautiful Gurung villages, this trek takes you into the heart of the Annapurna region. The highlight of the trek is Poon Hill, at an altitude of 3,201 meters, which offers an amphitheater-like view of over 20 peaks, including the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri massifs. The sight of sunlight painting mountain tangerines is what dreams are made of.

Langtang Valley Trek

Langtang Valley is located 30 km northwest of Kathmandu but is also known as the best kept secret of the Himalayas. To call Langtang beautiful would be a gross understatement. Although the region does not boast eight thousand like the Annapurna and Everest regions, you can see the most incredible views of Langtang Lirung, Ganesh Himal Massif, Yala Peak, Naya Kanga and Gangchenpo (Flute Mountain) climbing gracefully. heaven On top of this, this trek also offers a rare opportunity to see the beautiful mountains on the Tibetan side. As the region is home to many lakes and glaciers, you will often encounter them.

Annapurna Circuit Trek

This is one of the most fulfilling and versatile treks in the entire Himalayas. The trek encircles the 8,091-meter high Annapurna mountain and connects the two tourist districts of Nepal, Manang and Mustang. The trek offers you beautiful views of the western hills along the trail, even without reaching the main destination. However, from Thorung La pass, one can see an incomparable view of mountains like Nilgiri, Dhaulagiri massif and Annapurna massif. You can also enrich your experience by going on amazing side trips like Dhaulagiri Icefall and Milarepa Caves.

Everest Three High Passes Trek

It is only for experienced trekkers and those with a brave heart. We can definitely say that this is the best Himalayan view trek in Nepal. As you cross three Himalayan passes, all at an altitude of 5,400 meters, you can imagine the views you will see. Above this, the trek route passes through famous sights like Kala Patthar and Gokyo Ri. It is safe to say that this is the holy grail of all other nature treks in the Everest region. It is demanding and tough but also very satisfying. During the trek, you can often take in very amazing views of mountains like Everest, Pumori, Nuptse, Baruntse and Cho Oyu. You will also get to see the largest glacier in the region, Ngozumpa, very closely.

Manaslu Circuit Trek

This is the least visited trekking trail on our list but has a lot to offer. The trek will take you to the foothills of Manaslu, the eighth highest mountain in the world. This trekking tour beautifully blends mountain scenery with subtropical vegetation, mountain desert and ancient villages. The highest point reached during the trek is at the Larke Pass at an altitude of 5,106 meters. During the trek, including Manaslu, you will come face to face with 10 peaks above 6,500 meters and some peaks above 7,000 meters. The view of the mountains like Himalchuli, Ngadichuli, Shringi, Langpo will be engraved in your memory forever.
