Many travelers start their journey to Nepal in this busy, breath-taking city. While tourists travel to Nepal for a variety of reasons, one of the big draws of the country is no doubt the adventure of trekking in the Himalayan mountain region, and it is estimated that over 200,000 trekkers make their way to Nepal each year to take on a variety of challenges, from the fairly easy to the extreme.
