Hi Guys

I took my mother once for a trekking trip in Nepal and she loved it. She is 60+. Now she is asking me where else she should go trekking on her own to feel as safe and easy as it was in Nepal (you don't have to carry tents, food, sleeping bags, everything is easily available, prices are affordable and you generally feel safe and people are friendly). I thought of South America as probably second best trekking land where eventually it could be as she would wish. All the other parts of the world I experienced so far are not really so. This way or the other something makes it more difficult than Nepal. I haven't explored South America though. Could you please suggest and comment in case you have a comparison reference to Nepal experience? I am aware it is going to be more expensive but how much more if we consider one month trekking?

Thank you!
