Senior citizens above 60 can easily enjoy their trekkings in Nepal if they wish to do so during their retired life provided they spare their time and little amount of money to invest in this adventure once.

Nepal is one of the best places in the world which surpasses the natural beauty of the world by having Mt Everest as the highest peak in the world that symbolically epitomizes the crown of Nepal.

It means that though Nepal is a tiny country in the world whose human development index is just 143, has the highest crown in the form of Mt Everest on its forehead that shines persistently.

This land is also the land of hundreds and thousands of local deities worshiped by local people such as Gurungs, Magars, and Sherpas while the other religious traditions continue to coexist side by side in complete harmony.

For senior citizens, Nepal offers several touristic places for visits, treks, or hikes. These include Poon Hill, Annapurna circuit, Mardi Himal base camp, Muktinath and Jomsom treks, Mustang treks, Manang treks, visiting Ghale Gaun, and enjoying the Tamang trail.

While taking permission for any reputed place you can also alternatively take the permission for any new areas which are unexplored so far to have a new taste of the trip and new people and cultures that you can observe for a new experience.

As a matter of fact, Nepal is a hidden place of living tribal villages where you can find ancient cultures still preserved and practiced by the nomadic people such as “Rautes” who live in Jungles and roam about from place to place in each season.

As a senior citizen, you can also engage in paragliding, rafting, sightseeing by helicopter around the Himalayas etc.

You should only take care that you take suitable clothes, the best guides, healthy foods, good drinking water, trekking gear, and hotels reserved along with a rescue team ready to rescue in time of emergency.
