Near Nepal’s border with Tibet border are 14 peaks of more than 8000m, including Everest (Sagarmatha the “roof of the world”) with its 8,848m altitude. In the valleys between these peaks are hamlets and villages inhabited by many ethnic groups. These communities support a variety of trekking possibilities Many trekking routes in Nepal are so famous that the concept of trekking is inseparable from the country of Nepal. Among the many famous treks are the Annapurna Circuit, the Everest Base Camp, and the Manaslu Circuit.
