About The Hiking -
The hills of Nepal are popular for hiking.

There are many popular areas for one or two day hikes. Hiking is walking with the purpose of exploring, enjoying the scenery and natural wilderness. It does not necessarily mean it will be hard or too challenging.
Hiking takes place on trails in rural or wilderness areas and it is considered shorter than a trekking. Hiking in Nepal is popular among those travelers who want to do trekking, but do not have sufficient time, or are not physically fit for long treks, or are worried about altitude sickness. Hiking is suitable for children, old or weary trekkers, as it doesn’t entail any particularly long walking days, and there is always plenty to see. You just drive to a start point of a trail and begin the hiking. An average days hiking includes 3 to 6 hours hiking through villages, forests and beside sparkling fresh rivers. By mid afternoon, depending on the Hike you choose, it is likely you will be comfortably tucked up enjoying a cold drink or a tea. At night you will stay in a modern hotel or resort. Your belongings will be taken to your destination by car. You just need a small back pack to carry mineral water, your valuables, and lunch packet, etc.
