Who is this trip for:

You can claim CPD but the number of hours will be a personal decision.

- We show you the tallest mountains in the world up close, e.g. Mt Everest,
- We show you UNESCO heritage sites in Kathmandu, including by staying in Boudha near the UNESCO Boudhanath Stupa — the greatest stupa in the world where Buddhism comes alive each day.

Destinations, Itineraries and Costs
Expert mountain guides:
- You will be guided by experienced high altitude Sherpa guides, led by Mingma Sherpa a mountain guide who has travelled for 10 years across the 1700 klm of Himalaya on foot. Click here for details of his tourist adventure trips.
- Our trips are very well priced because this is a not for profit venture. See individual itineraries for pricing. Pricing includes all inclusive (meals on the trek, accommodation, Sherpa guides and porter salaries and the internal flights). You only need to organise your own flights to Kathmandu. We will collect you and take care of you from there.
Can I bring someone along?:

- You will need a moderate level of fitness (able to do an aerobic workout for 40 minutes).
- Porters will carry your gear and you will carry a light day pack.
- You will be well looked after psychologically and physically.
