Our Nepal guides and office staff
We partner with Expedition Himalaya for most of our Nepal operations
Great staff are the key and the success of our exploratory treks, in particular, is because of our hard-working staff and porter teams.
We started working with Dawa and Nabin in 1999 and haven't looked back and I (Jamie) have shared summits and adventures with every guide and cook, many of whom first came along as trek sherpas and kitchen hands. Between us, we have well over 100x 8000m summits and no injuries or deaths.
