  • Interview with Jangbu Sherpa

    Not many people can say they’ve spent two hours atop Mt Everest, watching a group of friends paraglide from the summit.

    But one of our local leaders, Jangbu, did just that on 21 May, when he fulfilled a dream five years in the making.

    Listen to this inspirational sherpa describe what it's like to climb Mt Everest for the first time. And find out how you can trek alongside him on a trip of your own.

  • Eye of the Tiger's Nest

    Look familiar? It should. Paro Taktsang is Bhutan’s most famous monastery, and was the setting for Bruce Wayne’s ninja training in Batman Begins.

    There’s a lot more to it than that, but as far as beginnings go, it’s a good place to start.

    Commonly known as The Tiger’s Nest, this temple in western Bhutan boasts a pretty colourful history.

  • How to pack for your trek

    Steve Wroe, our Himalaya Destination Manager, gives you a rundown on how and what to pack for your trek:

    When preparing to head off on a trek, packing is usually one of the last things we do.  Despite having packed for trekking/outdoor trips countless times, I still rely on a packing method I learned from a world-renowned trekking guru. Of course lists are good, but what if you forget to put something on the list?

  • The best mini-adventures on foot

    Leigh, our Social Media guru, recently made it to Machu Picchu after tackling the Inca Trail – a four-day trek through the lush, challenging Peruvian Andes. With fabulous views across varying scenery, high passes to test the legs and a stunning collection of Incan remains en route, it’s a trail that packs so much into its relatively short duration.

    To a Mountain in Tibet, by Colin Thubron

    A simple tale of a man travelling on foot to the sacred slopes of the holy mountain of Kailas in the western Himalaya, Thubron’s deceptively profound account is also an inner journey of remembrance and grief: for his recently deceased mother, and for other family members also departed.
