High Passes Trekking
High pass trekking, that is crossing high passes, is a challenging journey through some of the most spectacular landscapes in the Himalaya. Many treks include high pass crossings. The geographical variation of Nepal is mainly formed by hills, mountains and river valleys. This combination makes for many trekking ascents and descents along the trail. To go from one place to another in the hills and mountain area, crossing a pass is necessary. It is sometimes taken as an opportunity during the trek for adventure lovers. High passes satisfy the determined trekker's intent on crossing high passes without the commitment to any technical climbing. High pass trekking offers a memorable experience of natural beauty, geological variety and profound cross-cultural discovery. Highlander people like Sherpa, Thakali, Gurungs, Tamang residents provide a chance to taste the cultural diversity of Nepal.
