Top 5 fascinating trekking trails of Himalayas


Stretching from Burma to the fascinating Kyrgyzstan, the Himalayas are a mountain chain of superlatives. The deepest gorges, the highest peaks, the never-ending Tibet Plateau, and the wildest forests that focus on a really diversified and spectacular biodiversity, make the chain incredible from a geographical and geological point of view.
Trekking the Himalayas is changing, and still, a lot of people are assuming that the mountain is just packed with rugged wildlife. Back in 1953 that was true because the tourism branch was not that developed and the Everest was just climbed for the first time. Presently, adventurers have plenty of ways to experience the dazzling Himalayan chain. Walking is not that difficult anymore, and even though there are areas with high altitude, you can still make it. In the following lines we’ll have a closer look at some of the most fascinating trekking trails in the Himalayas.
