With a backdrop of the Himalayas, you’ll fall in love with trekking, the trails and everything in between!

Nepal is both a trekker’s and a photographer’s dream destination. Many people who started trekking in Nepal fell in love with this adventurous sport. There is something for everyone in Nepal when it comes to trekking options. We have shortlisted five short treks in Nepal that can be completed in 3 to 10 days. Get a taste of Nepali trekking with short trips if you are a beginner.

1.      Ghorepani-Poon Hill-Ghandruk

The Ghorepani-Poon Hill-Ghandruk trek is one of the most straightforward trekking routes. You can walk up to Ulleri, which you can get to via jeep from Pokhara itself or Nayapul. Those who can walk can either start from Nayapul or ascend to Tikhedhunga. The trail is uncomplicated, with a few spots having a minor ascent. You will get to see the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna mountain ranges and the historic settlements of Ghandruk over five days. Rhododendrons from Ghorepani to Poon Hill will make your trip more delightful. Don’t miss Poon Hill’s sunrise!



2.       The Royal Trek

The Royal Trek, a three-to-four-day commitment, is named after the route King Charles hiked when he visited Nepal in the 1980s. The walk is accessible because it is close to Pokhara and only rises to a height of 1,700 metres, making it acceptable for older people and children. It begins north to Pokhara, travels through Gurung villages, showcases stunning views of the Annapurna Himalaya, and concludes at tranquil Begnas Lake, a short drive from the city. Despite being a simple trek, it is also the most unforgettable.


3.       Panchase Trek

The Panchase Trek, which lasts roughly four days, is excellent for families and vacationers who don’t have enough time for a longer trek. Each day of this journey, which begins close to Pokhara, entails three to four hours of walking through a protected forest home to more than a hundred varieties of orchids. Because of the timetable, you may spend the remainder of your free time admiring the magnificent views of mountains like Annapurna and Dhaulagiri, which soar more than 26,000 feet into the air. Additionally, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to shoot pictures fit for National Geographic and enjoy yourself in nearby communities like Bumdi, Panchase Bhanjyang, and Bhadaure, where you’ll also spend the night.


4.       Dolakha-Kalinchowk

Eastern Nepal’s three-day trek can be very enlightening. Even though you won’t go higher than 3,800 metres, the hills are frigid and rugged, so you’ll feel like you are. Aside from passing through Kuri, Nepal’s only ski resort, the walk begins at Charikot and concludes at the Kalinchowk temple, where you can see mountains like Gaurishankar, Jugal, Annapurna, and Everest. Watch the skies because there are a lot of birds in the region.


5.       Chisapani-Nagarkot-Dhulikhel

Lacking time to leave the Kathmandu valley? You may go on a trek right here, in the Kathmandu valley. The journey begins in Sundarijal, from where you ascend alongside the Bagmati River to Chisapani. You can go on a trek to Chisapani Lake and see the sunrise. From there, a good but lengthy trail leads to Nagarkot. You will travel from Dhulikhel, where your trip ends, after spending one night resting at Nagarkot. Although it may not be the most thrilling hiking path available if you have never gone on a trek. Bring your family and venture out onto the trails.
