Our Nepal treks
Small - Friendly - Adventurous
Nepal treks (& India-Ladakh treks) are truly our passion and we set out to make each and every trek the adventure of a lifetime.
Nepal is our second home and we are true specialists, caring for every detail and running in some of the most logistically challenging areas to offer the best three week+ Nepal treks there are. We are happy with smaller groups, four to ten members only, and normally all trips run.

We refuse to let the golden years of trekking pass with a 42 day special and yesteryear Kanchenjunga!
Epic, powerful beauty on a route few dare, we link Nepal's two trekking Shangri-las over breathless mountain passes and along meandering alpine valleys for a visual feast of gorgeous trans-Himalayan panoramas and some trademark mountaineering exploration. This is a journey through flat-roofed villages and sacred monasteries including Shyamling and Bhijer, Shey and the enchanting, oh-so-turquoise Phoksundo.

Mustang Peaks option: 15 Sept-8 Oct, 24 days — US$3480 — full?
Unspoilt and cultural, the Kanchenjunga region offers some of the best trekking in Nepal.
A deep appreciation of this hilltop village set in snow leopard country; absorb the true nature of the villages and range widely, revelling in glorious alpine panoramas with a Tilicho and Thorong La finish. Bonus: help an innovative conservation idea simply by joining; each member supports a local researcher at no extra cost. Rewarding and purposeful!
9 Apr-9 May, 31 days — camping & lodges — Jamie McGuinness — US$3980
Gulp! Upper Dolpo to Mugu is the wildest trekking route in Nepal with a little rock scrambling in the forbidding Langu Gorge ...
11 Oct-7 Nov, 28/35 days — camping — Jamie McGuinness — US$??80
Olangchung Gola and Yangma exploration; the golden age of trekking isn't over just yet with an exploration in a favorite area of ours.
Unspoilt and cultural, the Kanchenjunga region offers some of the best trekking in Nepal. We begin in the warm middle hills, whole hillsides of terraces and picturesque villages, and work our way up thru thick forests into the high alpine regions with valleys that just keep going and going. The sight of Kanchenjunga (#3 peak in the world), seen from Oktang and from Pangpema (the north base camp) is unforgettable, as is the north face of Jannu, a worthy destination itself.
2021 Monsoon Everest
We catch the Khumbu a lush green with crops in the fields, and some afternoon showers are a small price for the clean air and quiet lodges in this picturesque off peak time.
12 Sept-9 Oct?, 28? days — lodges — Jamie McGuinness — US$??80
Climb 6461m/21,198ft high with some exploratory spice. Mera Peak is the most straightforward of Nepal's trekking peaks however we explore a new trail out for a seriously adventurous, gloriously mountain-ringed, alternative exit to the region, making a new Mera Circuit!

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 leader turns up to guide but without logistical control, or consistent staff.
Our prices remain competitive even though we spend more on our quality trek operation as we don't have a head office to support.
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 trek 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 four trekkers. Normally all treks run.
Caring for our staff We have great staff and 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, we provide duvets, mattresses, warm tents for them, plus warm jacket and pants, hat, gloves, shoes.
Tipping our crew is usual and allow 5% of the trip cost as a guideline. The western guides don't take tips.
*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.
Expedition-style trekking means sleeping in tents. 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. Couples share a roomy tent, everyone else gets a roomy tent to themselves.
Our service level is comparable to—indeed better than—World Expeditions and KE Adventure and similar.
Teahouse trekking means staying in local lodges and is on a twin share basis only. All trekking accommodation, all meals and some hot drinks are included. Alcohol, mineral water, soft drinks, snacks and toilet paper not included. Porters/yaks/mules carry your personal gear leaving you with a daypack.
