Alpine Flower Trekking in Nepal

Wild Flower TrekMost people know Nepal as the land of high mountains but Nepal has much more to offer to the visitors. We have huge varieties of flora and fauna in Nepal.

Nepal boasts 6500 plant species and 300 varieties of orchids to name the few .Many of these plant species are found in Nepal only.  Many different  flowers can be viewed in your  regular  trek .Besides we organize  two different treks  aimed to view particular  flowers. The good thing about these treks is you  notn only  see  the wildflowers but it  is a added benefit on your  regular trek which includes great mountain views, cultural exposure and othersWild Flower Trek. On some of these treks we take you little away from the regular trek routes and in some we take you to the special regions  not known to many.

In spring ( March and April) we operate treks  to view rhododendron while in summer ( July and August) we organise treks to see  primulas, poppies, iries  gentians and other wildflowers on the alpine slopes. Alpine Flower TrekkingThe blooming season varies from place to place -depending on the altitude, earlier in lower elevation and later in higher elevation .That means it requires precise knowledge which flower blooms where , when and lasts for how long.
