From the peaks of Everest to the plains of the Terai, we have designed some of the most original treks and extreme adventures offered in the region. For example, our ‘Lhasa to Kathmandu Mountain Bike Tour’ has the distinction of being the highest altitude mountain bike expedition with the longest and deepest decline in the world. We run mountaineering expeditions to the peaks of Makalu, Dhaulagiri, Everest, Lhotse, Tukuche, and more. Our trekking tours include the Annapurna, Everest, Langtang, Mustang, Manaslu, Dolpa, Kanchenjunga, and Dhaulagiri circuits.
In addition, we also offer journeys by 4WD Jeep, helicopter and light plane. This means that all adventure travellers whether young, elderly or disabled and the whole family can enjoy amazing views of Mt Everest and other locations that represent the experience of a lifetime! These can be combined with short or long carefully guided treks in remote regions of remarkably beautiful wilderness.
Mt Everest was once the hardest to reach peak in South Asia but now we can make that as easy as getting on board a helicopter.
