Adventure travellers heading off to Nepal for a hiking holiday may be pleased to hear that four new trekking routes are set to open in the country.
From 2011, walkers will be able to follow a new trail through the Annapurna Conservation Area, take the Limi Valley trekking route in Homla, tackle the Dudhkunda Trek in Soulukumbu or stride out on the Panchpokharai Bharirav Kunda Trek.
The Nepal Tourist Board (NTB) also revealed that work has been carried out to connect the various sections of the Great Himalayan Trail.
On January 14th 2011, this trail will be inaugurated and will become the longest and highest alpine trekking route as it follows the Himalaya mountain range for some 2,800 km.
In the long term, the NTB hopes to be able to connect countries such as Pakistan, Tibet, India, Bhutan and Myanmar with Nepal in a trekking route through the mountains that stretches for over 4,500 km.
One of the most popular treks in the country is the Annapurna circuit, which takes approximately 16 days to complete.
