Himalaya Guides Nepal is a well established, reliable and competitively priced company that has been in operation for the last 2 decades. During this period we have organized treks and expeditions for some of the most famous personalities in Himalayan climbing.
What makes us special is that we always try and go one step further to making sure that our clients receive the best treatment that can be offered. We also believe in doing our best for our staff and for the environment, areas that many other companies pay no attention to. We believe that this is why our clients come back time and again. It gives us great satisfaction that the majority of our business comes from the recommendations of past clients.
We offer first class equipment, excellent catering and some of the most friendly and experienced staff in the business. Our main office is in a prime location in Kathmandu and from this our professional and helpful staff is readily available to provide assistance and answer any inquiry.
The company does not believe in cutting corners in order to look ‘cheap and competitive’. When you are out there in the hills and mountains, sometimes experiencing harsh conditions, it is our belief that you need to be comfortable, well fed and looked after by people who really care.
We are aware that we have a responsibility to each place we visit and that our trips have an impact on the people, their local community and the environment. We always use experience sirdar (lead Guides) who works in conjunction with local staff. We provide the technical and safety expertise and the local people provide the local knowledge. We learn from each other and regularly provide technical training. We orgainse expeditions and treks to have minimal impact on the environment - we operate on small groups, discourage the use of wood for fuel, avoid polluting water, remove all litter and where possible and practical human waste. We buy many items from the local community, provided the quality is of an acceptable level, for example food, snacks and base camp equipment.
