Himalayan Treks In
Why Trek In Nepal
TEA HOUSE CULTURE
Tea houses are simple accommodations located at every campsite with numerous rooms, one spacious dining and a kitchen. So, at the end of the day’s trek, you will reach a tea house and can be certain that you will get good food and a warm bed to sleep in.
And here is the best part, you will get to choose whatever you want from a wide range of delicious food menu which includes dal bhat, momos, pizzas, pasta, noodles, and fried rice.
Since you will have a cosy bed, warm room, hot food, & bathrooms, trekking at these altitudes becomes easier and you will very likely wake up refreshed and eager to trek the next day.
BIG MOUNTAIN VIEWS
Eight of the fourteen highest mountains in the world are located in this country, either whole or shared across a border with China or India. So yes, it is all about the mountains.
You will trek through jungle trails, alpine dry lands, along glaciers, with these mighty eight forming the skyline every now and then.
Trekking here will also help you realize how small our worries truly are, when surrounded by these massive peaks and glaciers. We will be humbled before the mighty.
DIVERSITY OF TRAVELLERS
Trekking in Nepal is definitely exciting. Being the trekking hotspot that it is, Nepal isn’t just about getting to view the majestic high-altitude peaks or getting to know about the Nepali culture but it is an opportunity to meet trekkers from across the globe and sharing tea houses with them that makes it unique.
You might start the trek with a Namaste, but you will end it with a Bonjour or Buenos Dias!
We as an organization, do not like to grade trek difficulty.
Since many people are getting into trekking, the relativity index has become very wide.
But for your safety and well-being, we recommend having at least one previous high altitude trekking experience, ideally in the Himalaya before signing up for any of the Nepal treks. With regards to the fitness level required, do not worry, we will make sure you are very well prepared once you sign up.
Your safety is of utmost importance to us and we ensure that our standards of safety remain high throughout the trek.

Our Trip Leaders
Himanshu Thapa - With 66 treks, 362 days, 1600 km, 5 lakh feet, and counting, Himanshu is a man on a mission – completely unstoppable in the mountains.
He found his true calling in Wilderness Backpacking when he went to Colorado in the United States to work with Sanborn Western Camp, an outdoor education organization, as a Camp Counselor where he discovered the potential of self-reliant travel and its significant impact on individuals.
His curiosity to explore more outdoors led him to IndiaHikes, where he worked as a Senior Trek Leader. He is also a certified Wilderness First Responder from NOLS and has done his Basic Mountaineering course.
While he was leading treks, he found that people joining his treks were not completely self-reliant in the outdoors and heavily relied on the trekking company to provide for shelter, food, safety, and other basic needs. He now wants to build a community of outdoor adventure enthusiasts and make them completely self-reliant.
