Among them the remote treks during the fall and spring are the ones that are popular among a majority of trekkers that come to Nepal. If you are someone that does not like to follow the norms, then there are in fact hidden Himalayan areas where you can get a chance to enjoy the rainy season for a holiday beyond the Himalayas. In contrast, Mustang and Dolpo areas are popular for its summer treks as the routes are similar to that of Tibet with the dry touch to everything. There are even some destinations- Makalu, Kanchenjunga, Manaslu and Rolwaling regions, which are only possible to trek in autumn and spring.

These remote treks provides the visitor with an opportunity of a life time to experience the beauty and the cultural essence of the Himalayas in ways that a very few outsiders have. Carrying your own camp and cooking facilities are one of the features that separate remote treks from the usual good to go way as there are no lodges or even a tea house along the route. Not to mention the choice of campsite in the wild where one may choose premier camping spots with the location and view that they desire. However, as these treks carries a high risk factor only a select few trekking companies are authorized with permits to scalp these hidden areas of the Himalayas and usually cost more.
Apart from all the excuses, the cost and the risks, remote treks are amongst the most promising treks in Nepal due to the uniqueness of every trek.
