Further, it is true that the world’s highest peak Mt. Everest makes the Everest Base Camp Trek famous worldwide, so when it comes to trekking in Nepal, most people may only know about the Everest Base Camp. But, besides this trekking, there are other various adventurous and fascinating trekking trails in Nepal, which lure each of the people visiting Nepal. To name a few, some of the exciting trekking trails are Annapurna Base Camp Trek, Manaslu Circuit Trek, Ghorepani Poonhill Trek, and Upper Mustang Trek. All these trekking routes are different and best in their way. It is possible to trek alone on some of the trekking trails, but some of the restricted regions, including Upper Dolpo, Lower Dolpo, and Upper Mustang, require at least two tourists for an entry permit. In such a case, group travel is best.
Group joining trekking in Nepal is for those single trekkers seeking to trek with other people or groups. Trekking in a group would help to reduce the cost of trekking. Moreover, regarding safety also, a group trekking package is an ideal option. For those who have their group, it’s perfect, and those who are single can join the group provided by the travel company in Nepal.

Some of the advantages of the group joining trekking in Nepal
A group joining trek provides you with some trekking partners with whom you will complete your entire trekking journey. You have to spend several days with the group members while trekking. Spending time with group members lets you make beautiful bonding with them. You can make lifelong friends while trekking together, and it is truly a great way to make new friends. Being in a group of like-minded people with the common goal of trekking makes your trekking journey more exciting and joyful. Undoubtedly, group hiking or trekking is a great and casual way to make new friends that you may never have met otherwise.
You can enjoy a great conversation with the people trekking next to you during the group trek. Even if the conservation may not be about your favorite one, every protection means a lot to you during the tour.
Low Trekking Cost
Despite having the dream of trekking on the trekking trails of Nepal, many people are bounded by budget limitations. For such trekkers group joining trek is the perfect option.
By joining the group trek, you can share the cost of transportation, and guides, which helps reduce the trekking cost. Further, sharing accommodation with the group members decreases your travel expense. Besides these, there are many other expenses you can share with the members.
Regarding safety and security, a group joining trekking is the best option for anyone. When trekking in a group, you have the confidence to deal with any problem that comes on your way of trekking. Furthermore, your group members help you whenever you encounter any issue. When times get tough, your friends will be there to motivate and encourage you. For instance, when trekking towards higher altitudes, if someone in a group suffers from altitude sickness, then the group members will directly or indirectly apply the effort to make you feel healthy.
While trekking, you have to walk on the trails that are too far from the human settlement most of the time. Hence, while trekking alone on such courses, if any problems meet you, the exciting trip would turn into a life-threatening journey.
Also, when it comes to venturing deep into the forests, there is safety in numbers rather than alone. When trekking alone, you are not safe from wild animals inside the woods. For now, you may think that seeing wildlife in the jungle is fun, and sometimes it is, but most of the time, it can be more dangerous. However, if you do the group trek, then the loud chatting sound of the group may scare many animals, so they may not attack any of you.
Restricted Area Permit
According to the rule of the Nepal Government, it will require at least two foreign tourists to apply for the restricted area permit. So, if you are visiting Nepal alone, then a group joining the trek would help you obtain that permit.
Group trekking offers you the opportunity to share your history and culture with your group members from different countries. Also, you have the chance to know the culture and traditions of other countries too. Apart from this, trekking lets you experience the locals' culture and lifestyle, and it becomes easy for you to do so when you are in a group. However, when trekking alone, you may not freely communicate with the locals.
From tree and plant identification to the history of the area you are trekking through, there is always more chance of getting more information when traveling in a group.
