Our mission is to help people live out their mountain and trekking aspirations with a focus on local roots and culture.
Why Himalayan Ascent?
These days there are many different expedition outfitters and guiding services available to prospective Himalayan climbers and trekkers, and it can be difficult to choose which one to go with. A large Western-owned company or a generic budget Nepalese company? Himalayan Ascent is neither. We're a local company, small group focused, run by adventurers for adventurers with international standard service.
As a climber, if you are happy to climb with a large Western-owned operation where the size of your team may number in excess of 15 clients, and where you are unlikely to experience any interaction with the Sherpa guiding or support staff, then Himalayan Ascent may not be for you. However, if you are keen to climb in an intimate setting with a small group, where you interact and get to know your Sherpa staff personally, then Himalayan Ascent is what you've been looking for. If you appreciate a friendly and chilled out atmosphere, Sherpa guides who live and breathe mountaineering, in addition to the thrill of climbing your mountain objective, then we encourage you to contact us and discuss the expedition options available to you.
As a trekker, if you are looking to enjoy a trip safely and comfortably with knowledgeable friendly guides, Himalayan Ascent can help you fulfill your Himalayan trekking ambitions. Whether you're interested to follow a classic route with added challenges and sights, or explore remote wilderness and interact with local cultures, we can help you find your matching trip.
