By Glorious Himalaya on May 3, 2023 in Trekking

Nepal is a paradise for trekkers, whether they have years of experience or are beginners. If you are a beginner planning to trek in Nepal, some top trekking routes are primarily for beginners.

Trekking in Nepal combines experiencing beautiful mountain views with immersing yourself in the country’s rich culture and tradition. Nepal is perfect for trekkers of every skill. There are many kinds of trekking spots in Nepal, ranging from easy, moderate to challenging. Some of the popular trekking destinations in Nepal, like Everest Base Camp, Annapurna Base Camp, Mardi Himal, Pikey Peak, and Ghorepani Poon Hill, are easier to trek. For beginners, they range from easy to moderate level difficulty.

However, beginners should avoid challenging treks like Kanchenjunga, Upper Mustang Trek, and Tsum Valley Trek. This guide will discuss some of the best trekking spots for beginners.

Top Nepal Trekking Routes for Beginners

Beginner trekkers seek an easy—to moderate-level trek with less difficulty.

1. Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek

Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek is undoubtedly the most accessible and most suitable trek in Nepal, even for beginners. It offers all the thrills and excitement of any other trek, with breathtaking views and the opportunity to immerse yourself in the culture of the Annapurna region. This trek takes you through various terrains, including stunning scenery, dense jungles, and remote villages. At an elevation of 3210m, Poon Hill Trek is one of the best attractions of Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek, providing awe-inspiring panoramic views of the Fishtail, Dhaulagiri, and Annapurna ranges. Furthermore, this trek is relatively short and can be accomplished within 4 to 5 days.

2. Langtang Valley Trek


Langtang Valley Trek is another ideal trek for beginners. Still, it is slightly longer than the Ghorepani Poon Hill trek, as it takes almost 7-10 days to complete the trek. It offers another perfect mixture of adventure and a chance to learn new cultures and traditions.

The trek takes you to different terrains, from jungles, grasslands, valleys, and rivers to majestic mountain peaks. Some mountain ranges you can see during your trek are Langtang Ri, Porong Ri, Molamenquing, and Langtang Ri. During your trek, you will also reach one of the fantastic monasteries in Kyanjin Gompa.

3. Everest View Trek


Everest Panorama View Trek is another ideal trekking destination for those who want to indulge in the adventure of seeing some of the world’s tallest mountains of Nepal. The Everest Panorama View Trek takes you from Lukla to the Tengboche Monastery, where you will see the peaks of the mountains. The Tengboche Monastery is at an elevation of 3,860 m. You will never see Mount Everest, Ama Dablam, Lhotse, and Nuptse mountain peaks from the top of the Tengboche Monastery. This trek only takes about 5-7 days, and it takes to some of the beautiful remote villages.

4. Annapurna Base Camp Trek


Annapurna Base Camp Trek is a widely acclaimed and popular trekking destination globally. Despite its 14-16 days, it offers a relatively more relaxed trekking experience compared to other treks in the area.

This trek guarantees an unforgettable experience in the Annapurna region, where you will reach an altitude of 4130m. During the trek to the Annapurna Base Camp, you will be mesmerized by the stunning mountain views of Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Hiunchuli, and Nilgiri.

ABC Trek is very easy or moderate for beginners mainly because it is highly accessible by vehicles, and many hotels, lodges, and towns have all the facilities, from hospitals and pubs to several attractions.

5. Helambu Trek


If you’re new to trekking and looking for a peaceful escape to the beautiful Helambu region, the Helambu Trek is a great option. This journey lasts five to seven days and takes you through the hills, where you’ll see the lovely Sherpa and Tamang communities. The trek offers incredible views of the Himalayan landscape, and it’s not too difficult for beginners because the altitude is moderate and the terrain is relatively easy.


So, if you are a beginner planning your trek in Nepal, several excellent routes are ideal for beginners. Nepal is a paradise for trekkers who want to explore the beautiful mountain region and enjoy the fantastic views. Certain factors like altitude, rugged terrains, and cold weather amplify the difficulty, but if you choose the ideal times and hire guides and porters, your trek will be easier.

If you plan to trek at high altitudes, speaking with a doctor is essential; an experienced guide must be fit and well-prepared to ensure a safe and enjoyable trek.
