Nepal is a country comprising 8 out of the 10 highest mountains in the world. The layers of steep Himalayan foothills and high current rivers put off the colonists and the outside world for long. Nepal was open for tourism only in 1950es. However first type of tourists to come to Nepal were mountaineers who carried tons of equipment and food employing hundreds of porters. All of the 8,000 m peaks were climbed in the decade of 50es and 60es. It was only in 1970es onward that simple teahouses emerged along the trekking routes and it became possible for to embark on multiday trekking relying on them.
National parks were formed and locals were trained to cater trekkers with basic international standards in hygiene and environmental safety. The teahouse treks were more economic, environment friendly and empowered locals.
With time luxury lodges were introduced in some of the treks making it possible to trek with homely comfort to spend nights. Short and easy luxury treks could be planned in the Himalayas based on these comfortable lodges. Also the Heli – trek is something that cut long trek short by directly flying into the Himalayan valleys. Trekkers with limited time flies to the valleys safe with altitude sickness and do only the short, scenic and easy peace of the long trek. Heli – trek is also for hardcore trekkers with limited time as there are options of climbing peaks over 5,000 m.
Many gentle day hikes could be planned based on resorts and deluxe hotels in Kathmandu, Pokhara, Dhulikhel and Bandipur. Walking holiday could be planned with more relaxing time for seniors.
