These itineraries mostly cover the tropical, temperate and sub-alpine trekking region of Nepal. More to that, comparatively a short trekking is also cheap due to less number of trekking days.
Ghorepani Ghandruk circuit trekking, Langtang Valley trekking, Short Everest Tengboche trekking are some itinerary for first time trekker in Nepal to start trekking. As already said, a trekker still needs to make numerous ups and downs in these trekking as well. A trekker can enjoy the beautiful cultural, natural aspects of trekking without reaching alpine and snowline of the region. For example, Ghorepani Ghandruk circuit trekking in Annapurna trekking region, a maximum height a trekker gain is 3210m (Poonhill).

1.Ghorepani Ghandruk Circuit Trekking
There is no need of always trekking in deep snowline of Himalayas to enjoy the trekking. Trekking to Poonhill(3210m), actually summarizes the whole Annapurna trekking. Mark our words, there is no other possible way to capture Mount Annapurna, Mount Dhaulagiri, Fishtail, Himchuli from a single spot. Gurung culture during the trekking, especially around the beautiful countryside villages of Ghorepani, Ghandruk makes the trekking more versatile. Deep dense forest, small waterfalls and streams, terraced crop lands, during the trekking add more fun. Moreover, being the trekking itinerary short, still it is very flexible.This is one of the best treks for first time trekker in Nepal.
2.Langtang Valley Trekking
Even though, Langtang valley trekking seems to be high-altitude trekking considering the height of Tserko-ri(5030m), it is not. More to that, Tserko-ri is only a day hike to enjoy the beautiful Langtang valley trekking. Otherwise, a trekker would spend nights in Kyanjing village at the height of 3870m. Which we believe is not high-altitude trekking for amateur and beginner trekkers. Again, deep dense forest around Bamboo, Lama Hotel, Ghodetabela is home to beautiful animal like Red Panda. Tamang culture around the village of Langtang and Kyanjing are something special a trekker can enjoy. Another best treks for first time trekker in Nepal.
3.Short Everest Tengboche Trekking
A bit unusual considering the expensive price for flights of Kathmandu-Lukla-Kathmandu. But this is the best short and easy trekking an amateur as well experienced trekker can expect. With in few days, a trekker is in beautiful sub-alpine villages of Namche, Khumjung, Khunde and Tengboche dominated by Sherpa culture and traditions. Monasteries at Tengboche and Khumjung are bonus. Plus, unrestricted view of Mount Everest, Mount Lhotse, Mount Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, Kongde peak from a single spot of height 3880m is priceless. Moreover, a trekker can continue to Everest Base Camp or Gokyo trekking once they feel comfortable. Flexible right?
4.Short Trekking around Kathmandu valley
Nearby places around Kathmandu valley like Sundarijal, Nagrakot, Changunarayan makes a short round trekking itinerary in northern part of Kathmandu. The Shivapuri National park is very popular to enjoy the Langtang and Ganesh Himal ranges. Chitlang, Kulekhani is popular in southern part of the valley. These places are awesome for homestays and as a cultural trekking itinerary. One can combine this short trekking with any other activity like sightseeing, cycling, birdwatching. Easy, cheap, beautiful, fun and what else?
5.Langtang Tamang Heritage trekking
Langtang Tamang Heritage trekking itinerary brings culture and nature together. Tamang villages like Gatlang, Thuman, Briddim have raw culture of Tamang people to see day to day activity. Places like Nagthali is ideal spot to enjoy the deep green valley on southern part, while Northern part is to capture the Himalayan ranges of Langtang trekking region. Even more, you can see the nearby Tibetan land from Nagthali. Tatopani (hot spring) used to have high significance until April earthquake made the hot water source disappear.
