Moreover, the blooming of rhododendron forest and other herbs and vegetations would be the major attraction of being there during autumn and spring.

The earthquake of 2015 had an adverse effect on the trekking trails and the local inhabitants back then but now after the patience and positive attitude of the people along with their effort and collaboration from several donors, the trails are totally recovered and fine for trekking again. Though the lifestyle of people is somehow still lagged behind in some reasons because of trekkers and their contributions, they’ve got a light of hope that they will rise again.

We had a fantastic long weekend in Nepal with Nepal Mountain Trekkers. Ramesh and his team were amazing throughout and catered for our every need. We got a really personal tour even though we had a large group. We were provided with a variety of activities, with trekking, visiting temples and cultural sites and of course the Mount Everest Flight experience. I'd highly recommend Nepal Mountain Trekkers and look forward to returning possibly in the future!
