Lamjung Himal trekking
Nepal is a country located in South Asia and is located between the big countries India and China. The country is landlocked and is surrounded by land from all sides. India surrounds the country from east, west, and south while China surrounds it in the north. Nepal is incredibly beautiful by the natural resources it possesses. The country is incredibly famous for its trekking routes and places to visit. Some of the trekking routes of the country are listed best in the world. Annapurna trekking routes, Everest base camp trek, Mardi Himal trek, Manaslu circuit trek are some of the best trekking routes here according to various media and even the internet supports this.
However, this is not all Nepal has much more than this which has not come to the surface. To say the truth there are many trekking routes and visiting spots that are no less than the most famous trekking routes in Nepal. However, due to lack of exposure and having no mainstream promotion they are not so popular. In recent times this trend is in the process of changing due to more people being attracted to traveling and tourism. Among the many trekking routes is Lamjung Himal trekking which is gaining immense popularity and people also like it.
The Himalayas are one of the most famous tourist sites in the world. However, why are the Himalayas so famous? Where does lie and which country does it belong?
The Himalayas are the most famous mountain range in the world because the highest peaks in the world lie here. The range is formed by the collision of the Indian plates with the European plated beneath the ground. However, there are many theories behind the formation of the Himalayas, but the collision of the plates is the most plausible one.
The Himalayas do not only belong to one country but belongs to few countries and extend along a line. Pakistan, India, China, and Bhutan are the countries among which the Himalayas are divided. Nepal also has a fair share of the Himalayas that extends in its northern borders. The portion of the Himalayas that is in the northern part of Nepal is shared with China. The most famous mountains in the world like Mount Everest, Ama Dablam, Kanchenjunga all belong to the Himalayan range of Nepal.
The Himalayan range is not just in Nepal but is a major tourism site in other countries that has it in its territory. The peaks are astonishing people go to the various mountains within the range to view them, climb them, or admire the unparallel beauty these majestic things possess.
Lamjung Himal Trekking
Day 1 of Lamjung Himal trekking
Arrival to Kathmandu
Kathmandu is the capital city of Nepal and lies in the hilly region of the country. The beautiful capital of the country is surrounded by hills from all sides. Nearly, all the international tourists arriving in Nepal need to arrive through here as Kathmandu valley holds the only international airport in the country which is Tribhuvan International airport. Tribhuvan International airport is located at the heart of the Kathmandu valley.
However, there is a little bit of different rule for the travelers of India and China. The Indian travelers do not need to get a visa to travel to Nepal so if they wish or are near to Nepal border can get to the destination without coming to Kathmandu. Chinese also do not need to get a visa to stay in Nepal for up to 30 days so if by any chance they can avoid Kathmandu they certainly can.
For the people who are coming to Lamjung Himal trekking from other countries, get off at Tribhuvan International Airport. They will be picked up from the airport and will be taken to the hotel. After reaching the hotel they will be given adequate time to freshen up and be comfortable from their long journey.
