 Why book with us

  • We operate our treks in the Himalaya to high standards: we do not cut costs by paying porters and guides low wages and we do not cut corners by leaving out critical things like pulse oxymeters or being fully bonded and insured. But because you book direct with us you still get great prices. So if you find a trek with everything we include at a lower price just let us know and we will do our best to price match.
  • The whole of your trip can be tailor made to your requirement: your choice of routes, length of trek and dates in a custom made trip
  • Private airport collection, hotels before and after the trek, internal flights, park fees, guides and porters and all your accommodation on the trek.
  • Safety is the highest priority on all our Everest treks with detailed risk assessments and guides who are all trained in first aid and altitude sickness prevention
  • We have full insurance for all public liability risks with a Lloyds backed insurer and are a fully bonded member of ABTA so that all monies paid to us are secure.
  • We operate to the highest standards of responsible travel. Our porters are treated well and we support the Leave no Trace rules so that the Himalaya are not spoiled.

The fly-by view of the Classic route

Everest hikes and other great treks in the Nepal Himalaya

Rated by National Geographic as one of the top 5 treks in the world, the Everest trek to base camp is on most keen trekker's wish list. And everyone who has walked up the mighty Khumbu valley to visit the camp from which so many great adventurers have launched their Everest challenge agrees this is a fantastic experience. The classic Everest trek is just that, a once in a lifetime opportunity to trek in the footsteps of real legends.

But the Himalaya are about far more than just the classic Everest hike. We offer 4 variations on just hiking to Everest base camp including the remote Gokyo Lakes trek and the chance to include reaching a real summit, Island Peak on your trek. And outside of the Khumbu there are some other wonderful treks that take you “One Step Beyond”.

To the east of Everest is the fabulous Mera Peak trek, the highest trekking peak in Nepal and this offers some of the most spectacular views of the Himalaya on a trek that goes to 6500m but still requires no previous technical experience.

To the West is the huge Annapurna range with the famous circuit of the Massif and next door its less well know but equally spectacular Manaslu Circuit. Both of these offer great trekking all year round even when the Monsoon closes the main Everest routes.

So wherever you want to go and whatever your reason for wanting to trek in the Himalaya: whether you want to trek to Everest base camp for charity, tour Annapurna as part of a group, or climb Island Peak for a specific celebration such as a birthday or wedding anniversary, we can help you with all the arrangements.

Just follow the quick links above to find everything you need to plan the perfect Himalayan trek.
