Why adventure in Nepal?
Only people who are an adventure seeker, who have guts and love traveling will only know the trophy/value of it. In my view, trekking is the way to cherish your heart, to get new experience and to be part of nature. This is the way to heal your spirit and to be free from your busy life once in a lifetime.
As technology is updating day to day, more people are being stuck in the technology world, forgetting about the beauty of nature. They are unknown about the huge gap they are leaving in their life by not experiencing any adventure in their life. Therefore, to fill the gap in their heart adventure, traveling and trekking are most important.
