Trekking in Nepal involves a walking trip following existing trails, most of which have been used for communication and trade for many years. Trekking is not mountaineering. Whilst some of the popular trekking trails are used by mountaineering expeditions on their approach marches, most are simply used by the local Nepali's for everyday travel and trade.
Trekking in the Himalayas of Nepal is more a cultural experience than a wilderness expedition. You will be passing through picturesque society inhabited by diverse ethnic groups. You will see Chhetri farmers working in their fields and Tamang herders grazing their animals on the steep slopes.
