Nepal (& India-Ladakh) trekking is truly our passion and lifestyle.
We run the best three week+ Nepal treks there are - seriously! Nepal is our second home and we are true specialists, caring for every detail and running in some of the most logistically challenging areas. Jamie wrote the guide book Trekking in the Everest Region.
** After 12 years partnering with Project Himalaya, Kim is spreading her wings and now has her own US-based company Kamzang Journeys; we wish her all the best! **
Yes, our Nepal Autumn treks are running to support Nepal. We always carry a satellite phone on every Nepal trek. Jamie will be updating the Everest guidebook in December.
Wahoo, what an adventure! In 2012 we were the very first to complete the Saipal missing link, but over some heinous passes. This time we refine our route with kinder passes to truly open up this new section of the Nepal Great Himalaya Trail. It is authentic culture, a stunning variety of scenery and real exploration in four weeks.

More wonderful high route GHT exploration, we find an alternative high route from Simikot through to historic Mugu village. It is a remote route, through little-visited villages, peaceful high altitude yak grazing areas and with expansive mountain panoramas. And real exploration!

Here is a taster, while we work on new programs and check the safety of earthquake-affected routes.
Rarely trekked Ganesh Himal is delightful cultural trekking, and we optionally add Paldor 5896m, a straightforward trekking peak near the end, and explore the Tamang Heritage trail too, to comprehensively explore the region.

Across stunning Dolpo using our unique middle way. How about the rarely crossed Kagmara La to the Phuksundo jewel of a lake and the Numa La-Baga La middle route though Dho-Tarap to the new permit-busting Mu La and finish in Jomsom?

The best? Unlike all other western companies, the leader arranges the trek start to finish, managing every detail, including answering your questions. Other companies have office staff handling the questions and the western leader turns up to guide but without logistical control, or consistent staff.
Nepal prices are ex-Kathmandu, i.e. you have to buy your international flight tickets to Kathmandu (airport code KTM); domestic flights as required for the trip are included.
Dates are the date you must arrive in Kathmandu and the date you are free to fly out of Kathmandu. You can of course arrive earlier or leave later and we book hotels to suit. If transiting via Delhi in particular, plan your times carefully.
Minimums For many trips the minimum number that we run the trip with is three trekkers. Normally all treks run.
Caring for our staff We have great staff, and we really care about them, as they care for us. Sirdars, guides and cooks have worked years with us. Our porters are fully kitted out for high altitude treks following the letter and spirit of the IPPG guidelines.
Tipping our crew is usual and allow approx 5% of the trip cost as a guideline. The western guides don't take tips.
Leaders All our treks are western-led with a good local guide as well.
*Exploratory treks The golden age of exploration dead? Never! These are 'back of an envelope' treks that would warm Tilman's heart. There is nobody else on the planet who organizes treks quite like this, a positive attitude and smile required.
*Introductory treks are suited to relatively fit trekking novices.
Teahouse trekking means staying in local lodges and is on a twin share basis only. All trekking accommodation, all meals and hot drinks are included. Alcohol, mineral water, soft drinks, snacks and toilet paper not included. Porters/yaks carry your personal gear leaving you with a daypack.

A cook and helpers cater for us with 3 course meals and post-trek snacks, and porters/yaks/ponies carry the group gear and your kitbag and is organized by a sirdar. You trek with a daypack.
