Alternative Treks in Non Tourist Areas

Sometimes to experience the genuine Nepal you have to get “off the beaten path”. One of our major goals is to provide trekking in non-tourist areas and organize alternative treks for our clients. Not only can you have more authentic encounters, alternative treks can help develop poorer areas with correct and sustainable eco-trekking.  Every year we make exploration treks to unknown areas because we know that many world travelers are beginning to request these types of treks. Many of our treks and programs, especially the alternative treks are done with very basic homestay or even camping at night. This means you are totally immersed in the Nepali culture and will have a unique experience. Exploring Nepal's rarely-seen sights only add to the magic of the experience. However, these alternative treks are not just the hardcore adventurer, and quite a few are less remote and not particularly difficult. For example, some of them are accessed by the popular trekking routes but tend to be certain areas anyone hardly visits. There exist a world which is culturally rich, scenic and will allow you access to beautiful countryside and tiny villages. All of the new trekking itineraries given below are available for you to come to visit and explore this welcoming and magical land.
