trekking in Nepal.
If going to Nepal trekking definitely start off easy and avoid doing anything like a 20 day trek to Everest Base Camp. I agree with the original poster to opt out for an easy 5 day Poon Hill trek as it will be the perfect fit for most newbies. Even then, some days will be challenging, especially when you walk uphill and downhill. The Poon Hill trek also takes you through beautiful villages making for fantastic stops and photo opportunities and the beauty of it is the fact that youâ€™re trekking on a loop so no day is the same.
Plan your trek in advance and if travelling alone, I would recommend booking your trek before you arrive in Nepal. Also, be aware that the tap water and river water in Nepal is unsafe to drink so only drink bottled water, or boil the water or use purification tablets. Oh and..don't forget to take walking poles!
