The mountains of Nepal are blessed with uniqueness and rare at the same time. However, you will need to reach the toughest places to achieve the trekking bliss.

But the new trekkers are tourists who aren’t allowed to extract or go into medicinal herbs hunting. As the mountains aren’t stable at times the risk of life can’t come through for any guide or the trekking company.
