Trekking Tourism is getting more and more popular in Nepal Visitors to Nepal, really miss the exotic charms of Nepal, if they do not have the chance to trek in the mountains of Nepal Mountain Nepal is not accssible by road. There are only hill traks and terrains. Trekking on foot for several days is the only way to enjoy remote villages and unspoiled valleyes and to have close up views of majestic Himalayan peaks. Trekking is not so strenuous as mountaineering, expeditions. Trekking can be done by any lover of nature who likes to relax in the unsophisticated mountain valleys. Nepal is the only place in the earth which provides all sports of trekking possibilities from difficult treks to shorter treks. Trekking tourism is one of the major assets of Nepal annd this is amply proved by the growing number of visitors who are going to the mountains every year. His Majesty’s Government has declared open 18 peaks for Trekking parties. The highest peak having upto 21.34 ft. (6630m.) with previous permission from Nepal Mountaineering Association.

Evolution of Tourism in Nepal

The Lichhavis age Neal

After the fall of Kirata Dynasty, several dynasties are belived to have followed one another for some centuries. Recoarded history begins with the Lichhavis. When they came to power in 400 A.D., a golden age in the history of Nepal was started. The Lichhavis had the genius for the recontrruction of the whole of the country. With them, the nation entered a new phase of prosperity in art and culture. Painting, architecture and scuptures flourished brightly ad reached a new height of development.

Kailas Kuta Bhawan and Managriha, both palaces, were the creation of those days, exciting the spostaneous admiration of the contemporary Chinese visitor like Huen-Tsang in 637 A.D. Many Chinese Imperial Envoys from China like LiY-Piao’ and the ambassador Wang-Huiuentse visited Nepal and wrote many historical accounts about it. The famous kings of this period were Manadeva, Amsuverma and Narendra Dev. There is a definite piece of information in Chiinese History of the T’ang Dynasty (chapter 221) giving detail of Nepali History covering 643-651 A. D. Lichhavi Kings Exteded the lap of the Himalayas. The Malla kings who succeeded the Lichhavis around 750 to 1480 A.D., gave a new turn to the country. The Malla kingdoms of Kathmandu, Patan and Bhadgaon, were transformed into what might he called open-air museus of art and architecture. Almost all fine examples of art and architectures, the graceful pagodas in the shape of temple, places and ordinary houses, the prevailing customs of the various castes and the many festivals cycing around the year-are the products fo the Lichhavis and Malla periods. They are still a living phenomenon and influence the life of the people with the same inspiration as used to more than four hundred years ago.

prithvi-narayan-shahThe Shah Dynasty ruled over Gorkha in West Nepal, while the Mallas were having their heyday in Kathmandu Valley. King Prithvi Narayan Shah of this dynasty was the first king to conceive the dream of integrating the whole of Nepal under one Crown. To this end, he invaded Kathmandu Valley and owned complete victory after 25 years in 1767 King Prithvi Narayan Shah was a great Warrior, administrator, ruler and diplomat. He united all the petty states lying in the different parts of Nepal. His single-handed unification of Nepal is th greatest achievement in the history of Nepal.

Nepal After Unification to 1950

king Prithivi Narayan Shah introduced many reforms in army organisation, foreign affairs, cultureal activities, social system, economic conditions, religion and in trade. After the death of King Prithivi Narayan Shah, Nepal was ruled by his son King Pratap Singh Shah and then by King Rana Bahadur Shah and then King, Girbanyuddha Shah. The process of territorial expansion towards the south initated under King Pratap Shah, King Rana Bahadur Shah and King Girban Bikram Shah put Nepal on a collision course with the British East India CCompany, which was extending its hold over India. The war that took place in 1814 was concluded in 1816 under the treatyof Sugauli. It reduced the territorial extent of Nepal to almost what is now. After the treaty of Sugauli, a British Resident was apponted in Kathmandu. Dr Wallish visited Nepal in 1817 and carried on his botanical researches for a year. Even the British resident and his officials were not allowed to visit more than the narrow limits assigned to them.
During the reign of King Rejendra Bir Bikaram Shah, Jung Bahadur Rana rose to power and laid the foundation of an autocratic regime which lasted for 104 years. Jung Bahadur Rana visited England in 1850 with a larger retinue on the 15th of January. The door to Nepal was not opened to all foreigners except some British personalities who had to ask for permission from the vovernment before their arrival. Mr Schlagintweit was Permitted to visit the country in 1856 and carried out some of scientific expeditions in Nepal. A clear picture of the movement of foreigers in the country is observed by the editor Daiel wright, M. A., M.D. late Surgeon major in H. M.’s India Medical Service, ad Residency Surgeon at Kathmandu. In his book ‘History of Nepal’ published in 1877, he writes:
The name Nepal, however, is restricted by the natives of; the country to the valley surrounding the capital, and it is of this portion of the country alone that the following history and the present sketch treat. This is the only part of the kingdom which is open to investigation of Europeans; and it would be a hopeless task to attempt the description of places which cannot be visited or the collection of accurate information regarding a country where every inquiry made by European is viewed with the most jealous suspicion, where the collection of statistics is looked on as more folly and where, above all,Baron Munchausen himself would have been considered a marvel of accuracy and truthfulness.”

Tourism before unification of Nepal

Since ancient times Nepal was known as the abode of Gods. Many chinese as well as Indian people come to Nepal to make long pilgrimage to places of venerated worship. The chinese, followers of Buddha, did not hesitate to go as far as Lumbini, travelling millions of miles across vast countries. So the religious sentiment persuaded people of China and India to make a journey,strifing many dangers and hardships.
The people of India used to make journey to pay homepages to Lord Pashupati nath, Muktinath,, Barahachetra etc. making efforts which sometimes exceeded the limit of human endurance. On the commercial level, the lure of Nepal wool, so famous at that time impelled the merchants from India and China to make distant journeys to seek rare and sought after products. The travels of merchants who always journeyed with their merchandise, constitue an important part in the movement of persons.
On the political level, the necessity of amity or relations among different states or tribes, and the exchange of envoys between geighbouring countries, were greatly appreciated in the world of that time.

Trekking and Mountaineering

Trekking and Mountaineering are both popular and mountainous countries now are offering a wide variety of facilities for the tourist. Summer mountain resorts are among the oldest resorts in Europe. In the 18 century the discovery of the mountains was one of the first incentives to tourism. What travellers were interested in at that time was striking natural Phenomena gorges, charms, torrents, caves, strange rocks and they did not venture far into the mountains themselves. Their interes was also in keeping with a scientific trend in the ideas of the day. Later with the developement of roads and railways, travellers began to penetrate more deeply into the mountains, and tourist resorts became more widely dispersed. One might say that tourist locations were single-purpose at the outset serving a single site, like the Mer Declace near Chamonix in French Savoy, or the grindelwald glaciers in the Bernese overland of Swizerland, which attracted the first English tourist in the 18th century and became multi-purpose in the 19th century. This development is illustrated by the climatic resort Sanatoria which sprang up over whole areas where the climate was benefical to health the Grisons in the Switzerland. An interest in mountaineering, however, always leads to the creation of single purpose locations, and this is still the case in mountain ranges outside Europe the Himalays and the Andes. Zermatt at the feet of the Matterhorn is an excellent early example of the type of resort.
Trekking is a sport which is defined as following mule traks or footpaths on foot. Trekking is done at the point beyond which the traveller can go no further by collective means of transport the traveller can go no further by collective means of transport into the heart of the mountains.
