Trekking holidays to Nepal 'are a cultural adventure'

Trekking holidays to Nepal's Annapurna Circuit are as much about taking in the cultural history of the area as they are about a tough, challenging walk.

This is the view of Ryan Van Duzer, a traveller who reported on his current trek through the country in a column for The Daily Camera.

He explained that the trail is a Teahouse Trek, which means that there are plenty of simple guesthouses for travellers to get a meal and spend the night.

"The adventure is not in roughing it, but in experiencing all that this ancient trade route has to offer," he said.

Mr Van Duzer went on to add that the numerous facilities for trekkers come as something of a relief, saying: "I won't be losing any toes to frostbite or eating boring, dried food."

Adventure Company's Annapurna Circuit and Himalayan Explorer treks both offer travellers the chance to experience the same sights and sounds as the travel writer.
