A mountainous wonderland of culture, community and colour, there are few places in the world that you’ll feel more welcome than in Nepal. Home to the world’s highest peak and notoriously spectacular and well-trodden trekking routes, Nepal is the ideal destination for any adventure. The breath-taking scenery provides a picture-perfect backdrop for endless exploration of the fascinating culture and varied landscape, plus a chance to interact with the wonderful Nepalese people. They are proud of their country, and rightly so, always making any intrepid traveller feel at home in this beautiful slice of Asia.
Nepal is one of our favourite destinations and we’ve been working with our local teams here for many years. Our expeditions in this beautiful country provide a truly unique cultural experience with some of best landscapes the world has to offer, plus an abundance of activities which are sure to enthral. Whether it’s trekking to Everest Base Camp, a community project at a Buddhist monastery, or a jungle safari in Chitwan National Park, Nepal has something for everyone and we’ve harnessed the best of what it has to offer for our life-changing expeditions. Nepal’s flawless combination of everything that we love about expeditions promises that your first visit won’t be your last.
All of our treks run in accordance with the IPPG (The International Porter Protection Group) guidelines, so you can be sure that the guides and porters we’re using in Nepal are fully equipped and supported when working with us. Here are just some of the ways we make sure that our guides and groups stay safe in the mountains: -All our guides and porters in Nepal must wear appropriate clothing for the season and altitude, and be protected from the elements. -All porters are provided with a dedicated shelter when above the tree-line, and are provided with food and drinks, as well as the necessary equipment for cooking. -All porters are given life insurance and the same standard of medical care that we would expect for ourselves and those who travel with us, which includes ensuring that they are properly assessed when illness/injury does occur. -Porters are also never asked to carry a load that is too heavy for their physical abilities, and this is adjusted according to the conditions. By ensuring that our porters and guides are properly prepared and equipped, we ensure their safety and in turn, the safety and enjoyment of our travellers. Nepal remains one of our favourite destinations, and having run expeditions there for over 20 years, we pride ourselves on our commitment to protecting all those who make our expeditions possible.
