It’s not just where you go. It’s how.
There are as many travel companies to explore the Himalaya, with as there are places to explore.Sherpa Holidays’ travellers are looking for something more than a plane ticket, a hotel room, and a seat on a bus. We make travel meaningful by thinking small, thinking local, and thinking about what benefits the traveller, the trip and the locals get.
We Care for Your Safety
Your safety is of the utmost importance to us. Therefore, when it comes to keeping the overhead of our trips low, safety is one area in which we simply do not compromise. Our guides are selected based on their technical proficiency, proven safety records, impeccable judgment, their friendly demeanor and their ability to provide helpful and knowledgeable instructions. They are also highly professional and well trained in first aid and personal protection equipment. We also make sure that first aid kits are available on all trips and happily provide oxygen cylinders and PAC Bags upon request (payable). Furthermore, the itineraries are ideally designed to give you enough time for acclimatization.
We Provide Financial Protection
Going on any adventure trip will require a substantial sum of money to be paid in advance. Yet, trusting a company you have no prior experience with involves risk. However, we are a fully-bonded trek operator authorized by the Nepal Government, Tourism and Civil Aviation Department, Nepal Tourism Board, Industry Department, Company Registration Office, Nepal National Bank and the Taxation Office. We are also affiliated with several prestigious regulating bodies such as Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA), Trekking Agencies’ Association of Nepal (TAAN),Nepal tourism Board(NTB) and Kathmandu Environmental Education Project (KEEP).
In order to practice responsible tourism, our company is guided by the motto ‘Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints’. We design our itineraries and operate in the field guided by the principles of ecotourism and sustainable tourism. Furthermore, all our staff have been given environmental training and are very sensitive to the delicate eco-systems we enter. In addition, we have a history of committing ourselves to the safety and enjoyment of our clients and maintaining high ethical standards in all our operations.
