  • Why we love Himalaya

    • Kathmandu's friendly hubbub, Pokhara’s glistening jewel of a lake, Chitwan’s animals and lush forests – Nepal can surprise visitors with its variety
    • Fly parallel to the mountains and get a great view of Everest on the flight from Kathmandu to Lukla
    • Nearby Tibet is as wonderfully exotic as destinations get – halfway to heaven and hidden from the world, this is a place that truly deserves the description ‘otherworldly’
    • Our trips are led by people who’ve grown up in these mountains and have guided hundreds of expeditions
    • The proceeds from the lodges we stay in along the Annapurna and Everest trails go back to the community

    Safety information

    Your safety is our top priority. It’s one of the main things we consider when designing and operating our trips. Here’s some of the ways we help to keep you safe, and a few of the things you can do to make your trip memorable for all the right reasons. Before you travel We monitor travel alerts provided by the Australian, UK, USA and Canadian governments on a daily basis. Before a tour goes on sale we assess any risks and decide how to reduce and manage these. If we determine that an entire trip, part of a trip or an activity is too risky we won’t do it. It’s as simple as that. If we can’t address the issues and improve conditions we might modify an itinerary, change the accommodation or even decide not to travel to a certain location. Our overseas staff and local leaders are trained to address any health and safety concerns during trips. Before you travel, we’ll give you an emergency phone number. You’ll also get comprehensive pre-departure information, with information about vaccinations and other relevant health issues. We’ll also tell you if there’s any special clothing or equipment you need to bring. During your trip: You local leader is trained in first aid and always carries a first aid kit. Being a local means that if something does go wrong they know fastest and most effective way to get help. On all our high altitude treks we carry a portable altitude chamber and oxygen equipment. We’ll also give you a 24-hour emergency number in addition to the emergency destination telephone number. What you can do: Read through all the information we send you. If you’ve got any questions we’re always available to help. Keep an eye out for travel alerts by consulting your local Foreign Office.

Get some medical travel advice about the countries you are visiting, particularly about vaccinations and the type of personal first aid kit you should carry. Make sure you tell us any medical conditions, special needs or dietary requirements you might have. Get your vaccinations and take relevant medication well before travelling so they have time to take effect.

    Annapurna Dhaulagiri

    Our trip leader must be commended for making decisions regarding some of the trekkers who became ill along the way and also one who held up the group throughout. These were difficult circumstances and he dealt with them superbly. His patience was outstanding.

    Bring purifying tablets to obtain potable water; be prepared to be awed by the views, and people of Nepal.

     

     

    Annapurna Dhaulagiri

    Just go. The mountains are more impressive than you can imagine. The views are spectacular and so varied every day of the trek. The locals are friendly and welcoming and the lodges, whilst basic are really comfortable considering your location. Make sure you do some training - there's a lot of walking up and down, but it's not beyond most people. Don't over pack, you tend to wear clothes for multiple days; Cleaning ie showers available almost every day in some form.<

    Annapurna Dhaulagiri

    The most memorable part of the trip was the fact that we were off the beaten track for most of our trek. It was so great waking up to a different mountain views each day, and then walking along paths without passing other trekkers. I'm so pleased I did the Annapurna Dhaulagiri trek rather than one of the main trails. It was also fantastic to walk through the little villages, observing daily farming life and having brief encounters with the locals.
