Nepal is also an open and liberal countries in Asia for LGBT rights. Roughly after 2001, the LGBT issues forwarded officially. Since 2006 AD, Nepal is a secular state where LGBT community represents diverse culture and religion.
Furthermore, in 2007 Nepal’s Supreme Court ordered the government to end discriminatory practices against the estimated 350,000 people who make up the LGBT community and paved the way for equal rights. We celebrate diversity and promote unity and equal rights in every community we serve. On a personal level, we provide you with outstanding service and amenities you need to start every journey right. Nepal is most active country in South Asia towards the identity and issues of the LGBT. Nepal became the first country in the region to decriminalize gay and lesbian sex.
Besides that, there are many crowded trek routes in Nepal such as the Annapurna region, Langtang Trek, Manaslu Trek, Everest base camp trek, Gokyo trek… etc, where Lesbian and Gay can travel. You can trek into those areas from 4 days until 24 days which depend upon your travel plan. Besides that, traveling in those areas stays a lot of nice lodges with modern facilities, so you can walk only with your light backpack.
Probably Gokyo Treks and Expedition is the first Gay and Lesbian-friendly tour operator in Nepal that has employed gay staff in the office to understand about our gay travelers. We have published some trek and tours as special ones for Gay and Lesbian but all our tours can be customized as per your time frame and interest. Or talk to our expert who loves to customize the tour for LGBT traveler or friend of the community.
