Our Nepal treks
Small - Friendly - Adventurous
An experience to savour. Nepal treks (& India-Ladakh treks) are truly our passion and we set out to make each and every trek your adventure of a lifetime. We skip the busy Everest BC trek (even though I wrote the guide book) and instead focus on exploring quieter but incredible regions, here is some photo inspiration.
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. Small and personal, focused on our previous trekkers, we are happy with smaller groups, four to nine members only.
"I very much appreciated your loose "facilitator" style, (as opposed to "strong leader") which allows room for individual responsibility and decision making ... I can't imagine ever going on a heavily scripted and controlled, marching toe to heel, trip again."
- Bruce Utsey

2024 Nepal ideas
For a Nepal spring trek, I recommend Upper Mustang, which has great weather during May. For our main October trek lead by me, it will be a Manaslu hybrid trek. Do also see our incredible Ladakh & Zanksar treks!
Unspoilt and cultural, the Kanchenjunga region offers some of the best alpine trekking in Nepal. We can arrange both private trips and group fixed departures - what suits you?
18 Apr-11 May 24 days — lodge trek — Bire Tamang
With colourful crops in the fields, ancient gompas and canyons of awe, we partly jeep unavoidable roads but mostly trek the best trails to Lo Manthang then take an adventurous, appreciative trekking route out on that most scenic of trails.
21 May-7 June 18 days — lodge trek — Gelu Sherpa
10-27 Sept, 18 days
Opening with the wilderness camping Rupina La route in (avoiding roads) then we'll continue in lodges to delightful Tsum then take our time and get off the beaten track around the classic Manaslu Circuit.
8 Oct-8 Nov, 32 days — camping+lodges — Jamie McGuinness
Epic! Unspoilt and cultural, the Kanchenjunga region offers some of the best trekking in Nepal and on this special version of the trek, we walk up Jamie's favourite very high viewpoint of the region.
20 Oct-15 Nov, 27 days — lodge trek — Bire Tamang
Nepal travel basics Easy, there's an online e-visa system with payment on arrival at the airport, USD50 for 30 days or USD125 for 90 days.
Trekking basics You can trek solo in the busy Annapurna, Langtang and Everest regions. For other restricted areas you must arrange through a trekking agency for the permits. Upper Mustang, Manaslu and Kanchenjunga are great lodge treks, other areas require fully supported camping trek support.
Trekking is walking, not climbing, and we rarely walk in snow. You carry a day pack, the porters/horses carry your duffel/kitbag. Trails are rough, sometimes exposed and rarely signposted.
A typical day on the trail is 4-6 hours walking starting around 8am and reaching 2-4pm. Distances are 8-24kms with big hills and descents with rest days spaced throughout the trek.
Fitness reasonable fitness required, trekking is physical.
Seasons spring treks are March, April into May then no trekking during the summer monsoon (go to Ladakh instead). The main post-monsoon trekking season is busy October and fine November.
Nepal prices are ex-Kathmandu; you buy your international flight tickets to Kathmandu (airport code KTM).
Dates are the date you must arrive in Kathmandu and the date you are free to fly out of Kathmandu. You can arrive earlier or leave later and we book hotels to suit.
Group size our maximum is eight trekkers (excluding leader); minimums are on each itinerary.
Caring for our staff We have great staff and really care about them, as they care for us. Guides have worked years with us and our crew are appropriately kitted out for high altitude treks.
Altitude acclimatization we take this seriously on every trip.
Camping means sleeping in tents. A cook and helpers cater for us with 3 course meals and post-trek snacks, and porters/ponies carry the group gear and your kitbag. You trek with a daypack. We provide roomy single tents at no extra cost.
Lodge trek 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/mules/jeeps carry your kitbag/duffel leaving you with a daypack.
All treks include
+ local airport transfers
+ hotels and guesthouses
+ domestic flights/private buses
+ guide and porters/horses
+ group first aid kit with altitude meds ... and more
Camping treks also include:
+ roomy single tent / 3/4 person tent for couples
+ French press coffee
+ cozy dining tent
+ filtered water ... and more
Tipping our crew is usual and allow 5% of the trip cost as a guideline. The western guides don't take tips.
*Exploratory treks Is the golden age of exploration dead? Yep, more thoughts soon.
