Moderate trekking is a perfect section to explore if you are seeking for an adventure-packed vacation trek. Nepal is just the place you will like to be for this purpose. Starting from lower hills to the snow-capped Himalayas and sometimes even in the flatlands, these treks bring out the perfect joy of traveling on foot. With some significant cultural components backing up every session of your walk, nature scenery and landscape, moderate treks top the list of to-do things in Nepal. The best thing about this variation of the trek is that there is enough time to enjoy the trek than the pressure to complete a segment in the given time.
Here, we provide you the best of the moderate treks in the Himalayas that you can select from in your vacation.

This trek can be customized to complete between 7-12 days.
