Trekking in Nepal seems extreme and almost impossible for people — particularly Americans — who haven’t looked into it. The truth, however, is that these bucket list items are very doable from both a physical and financial standpoint.
The physical part, while challenging, is within reach of hikers of all ages. It’s mainly a matter of training and proper acclimatization. From a backpacking standpoint, some people guide themselves and overnight in tents but most trekkers will benefit from having a local Sherpa guide and enjoying a roof over their heads in one of the many tea house lodges along these routes.
