less populated treks

Posted by Rukus on 26/5/2013 at 02:20

so I have just arrived into Nepal, Katmandu and we'll be doing some trekking not limited to just one trek either, I want to see beautiful mountainous, valley scenery even if that means bring on a populated trail at times, but I'd like to know if there is any stunning trails, treks that are less populated and worth checking out, like perhaps Ganesha mountain. If anybody has any experience in the himalayas let me know, thanks

Nepal has some great trekking and its not just limited to Everest Base Camp or Annapurna Base Camp. Two treks that I have personally taken and might suggest are Mustang or Manaslu. Manaslu does not get a lot of trekkers but still has some decent tea houses to stay in so its comfortable and yet not crowded.

Everest BC and Annapurna are beautiful but can be quite crowded. But if you go little bit outside the high season (for example in December when it is a bit cold but still sunny), it is really ok.

One of my favorite is upper Mustang. There, there is almost no tourist, this is because of the very expensive permit required (50 US dollar/day). But if you can afford it, you will love this region!
