Sightseeing tours are organized with great care taken regarding hotel accommodations, transportation and guides. The tour guides have a firm grasp of the culture, religion and social customs and of the tour region, fluent in the local language.

The tours cover not only the popular destinations of Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan but also their more remote and less visited parts.

Our tours can commence in Kathmandu itself, or else we can pick up groups and individuals from the Tibetan border, Lhasa airport, Chengdu or number of places (Beijing, Delhi, Bagdogra, Phuntsoling etc.). We have partner agents in Lhasa, Thimpu, Delhi and Beijing who co-ordinate both land and air travel between Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan, India and China, and also obtain the necessary visas and permits in Kathmandu for Tibet, Bhutan and India.

When you think about trekking you think particularly permits, vigilant staff, comfortable facilities and the safety of the whole party. We offer both short and long trekking programmes to tourists who want to get off the beaten track. Porters, Yaks or horses are hired to carry the luggage. Our treks are accompanied by experienced trekking leaders, trekking guides and Sherpa helpers, all of whom are experienced in meeting any contingencies. The field staff are steered in the local geography, language and culture and adept at weather forecasting and first aid. Our mountaineering and trekking cooks knows how to prepare Continental, Sherpa, Tibetan, Nepali, Chinese and Indian dishes catering to different tastes day by day, even in high Himalayan camps or wild hidden valleys.
