Find and explore treks from your mobile device in preparation for an adventure of a lifetime with the Trekking Nepal app. Or use the app to find trekking buddies. The app includes maps and all the major treks (with GPS tracks, facts, blog links and personal videos).
Once you’ve found the perfect trek reach out via the built-in forums to find trekking buddies or contact one of our referral agencies for logistical help.
The app now also includes limited referrals to trekking agencies, hotels/Guesthouses, gear suppliers, eateries, blog sites and gear providers.
So plan ahead or just explore treks with the provided maps, tracks and simulators (walk or fly over the area).

Active Links per Shop Card
Click on the location button and a live map opens with the location of the business marked with a pin. Activate the GPS button to move towards the location pin in real-time. This is similar to Google Maps but built into the app.
Click on the Info button on any shop card and your device will open the web page of the business. This is a page designated by the business to provide additional information about it’s services and background, etc.
Click on the Shop button on any card and your device will open the sales web page of the business. This could be their booking page or their general store, etc. The link is determined by the business to best provide the user with direct sales.
The download button will download the data for the specific e-pack card. Once the data is downloaded it will automatically appear on the World Map page. And when you switch to the home age it will be re-configured for the downloaded data and organization. You can then switch between data sets with the Organization drop-down box that will appear below the Cards on the home page or in the filter of the World Maps page.
The developer (Livio) created this app because he was a fan of trekking with an organization called Highlander Adventure in Eastern Europe. However, he found some aspects of their treks problematic. Specifically organizing the treks by date so that he could avoid conflicting trek timelines (hence the calendar feature) and the inability to find trekking partners as well as pre-trek rides and logistics (hence the forum feature). Then the app expanded with new requests, such as world map pins, online/offline maps with GPS tracks and more.
Livio continues to expand the app’s features/versions based on his trekking experiences on other continents and user input. Want something? Contact Livio below.
Disclaimer about the Forums and Private Chat Rooms 😉
What this app is not! This app is not intended to be the next Scrabble Dating App;-) Yes there is a forum for you to find trekking buddies. No it is not intended for you to find your next x-wife/x-husband. So please be respectful and keep on trekking.
