I was born on the lap of the world's 8th highest mountain and have since spent many years taking people through different routes of the Himalaya. After years of doing excursions, I finally decided to start organising my own tours and adventure activities for people visiting Nepal. With more than 20 years of exposure in mountain tourism, I craft one of the best and ideal itineraries - this based on the interest of my clients.

Himalayan Travel Consultant We are leisure and adventure activities organisers who regularly operate trips in the Himalayan Regions. There is a saying “ Money well spent is spent either in meals or travel”. We are based in Nepal, people often travel with us covering all three different regions of the Himalaya. Our combined trips include front side of the Himalaya, behind the Himalaya as well as the side of the Himalaya. We operate trips in Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan. As Nepal is our home country, we grew up here breathing the fresh air from the snow capped mountains, we walked all the ups and downs and crossed thousands of terraces and we traversed many of the rivers up to their origin.

Organising different types of trips in Nepal is not only our job but our passion too. These forbidden and different lands are opened to all foreigners. There are different types of activities available in this land. One can climb higher and gaze at the view of the roof of the world or one can see the same mountain from a chopper, it all depends on physical condition, time frame and budget.

Many people simply enjoy walking along the banks of the serene lake Phewa or drinking a chilled beer. Kathmandu is one of the most fascinating chaotic cities for many westerners. Kathmandu also houses seven different world heritage sites and they are all located in the vicinity. Many an enthusiastic traveller has fallen in love with these temples and palace complexes.

Our trekking packages range from a few hours hike to many days of walking. If there is no time limit or budget limit, the recently opened Great Himalayan Trail which takes around 120 days and covers the view of the majority of the 8000 meter peak located in the Himalayan Regions. Discovering different types of cultures, landscapes and forget your every day life for a while. Our team caters to the needs of every individual and are able to customise the itineraries accordingly.
