In every tour or trek that we design we are always aware of our client's needs and also the needs of the environment and the native peoples in the more remote regions of this part of the world. We hope to demonstrate the regions of this area of the world without glitz and false promotions that reward neither the traveler nor the people living here. It is hoped that when your tour/trek is completed you will carry away with you a sense of the warmth and hospitality of the region's peoples, but also a better understanding of the beauty and fragile environment that creates such wondrous scenery and a sense of inner peace that will remain deep within you for many years to come.

Lhakpa Sherpa is a seasoned mountaineer who has participated in various climbing expeditions in the Himalayas. He started his career as a porter at a very young age. He then went on to become a Kitchen staff for expedition groups, later on. In 1996, Lhakpa became a licensed climbing guide. He successfully made his first ascent to the famed Island Peak (6,183m/20,305ft) that same year. In the subsequent years, Lhakpa became a successful mountaineering instructor apart from being a successful mountain climber.
He began climbing a series of mountains in Nepal the following years, which includes the difficult Mt Cho Oyu (8,201m/26,906ft) and Mt. Baruntse (7,129m/23,389ft) among others. He has also made successful ascents to Mt. Nanga Parbat (8,126 m/26,660 ft) in Pakistan in 2006.

He is technically sound and an all round professional. He holds keen interest in climbing the most technically challenging mountains of the world rather than just making records climbing the highest ones. A Sherpa by lineage, heritage and deeds, Lhakpa continues his drive to conquer mountains and is vocal about the preservation of the Himalayan ecology and takes clients from all over the world to the challenging pinnacles of snow in the Himalayas.
