Welcome to Nepal, Tibet, India and Bhutan for trekking and climbing adventure holidays among the mountains of the Himalayas, including Everest Base Camp, Annapurna Sanctuary and Circuit, Langtang Valley, and many more. A holiday with Access-Himalaya can take you to the wilderness of Kanchenjunga or Dolpa regions, or on a gentler hike around the Kathmandu Valley Rim, with countless choices in between, to suit you. Our experienced professional and friendly local Nepalese staff will lead and guide you, ensuring reliable support and service at all times, whatever adventure you choose.
Our adventures extend from a few days to several weeks, according to your timetable, and can include popular and remote treks, peak climbing expeditions, jungle safaris, white-water rafting, mountain biking, family holidays, short breaks, honeymoons, school and college expeditions, cultural tours, and special interest holidays.
Whatever your choice, it will be our great pleasure to organize an Access-Himalaya adventure holiday for you.
Access-Himalaya is a small, yet vital company, without delusions of grandeur, believing that small is beautiful, and also entirely appropriate in this little jewel of a Kingdom. We are able to make all our guests feel at home here in Nepal, thanks to our personal approach, the fruit of over 25 years of hands-on experience of caring for clients on treks and expeditions. We specialize in carefully planned and tailor-made holidays for small groups of people in both the better and lesser known areas of our country, and it is our aim to introduce clients to the 'real' Nepal - something which we believe can only be achieved by a totally Nepalese company.
All our staff members are Nepalese, comprising for the main part an extended Rai or Kirat, family. It is our policy to ensure that our guides are properly trained and Government-licensed, with a tested knowledge of all aspects of trekking, including first aid, health and hygiene, as well as cultural and ecological issues.
Our principle of smallness allows us to adhere closely to the ideals and aims of eco-tourism, encouraging respectful interest in the people and their cultures, without overwhelming their villages and towns, without disturbing the fauna and the flora , and without harming the unique landscape of Nepal. This principle helps us to limit the impact of our trekking on the environment and to ensure that our groups take away nothing but photographs, leave nothing but footprints and kill nothing but time.
As a Nepalese company, centred in Kathmandu, we are able to avoid the high costs of trekking companies based in Europe or USA, where high expenditure on business accommodation, advertising and staff salaries must be passed on to the client; thus our holiday costs are significantly lower than those of our competitors.Additionally, we do not employ foreign trek leaders, as we feel that there is no better guide than a locally experienced, English-speaking Nepali.
We prefer to take groups with a maximum and manageable size of 12-14, not only to lessen the impact on the environment, but also to encourage good-natured friendliness on trek and around meal tables! However, as always, there may need to be exceptions to the rule on occasion.
From start of our organisation, high ethical and moral standards are our main operational guideline. We always able to self-regulate and has a clear conscience to play a part to responsible business. where balanced customer service and sustainable development. We always aim is to make a positive impact on the environment and all stakeholders including consumers, employees, communities, and others.
'Business Model': moral and ethical principles are our operational guideline, and we are fully committed to contribute to sustainable development by delivering economic, social and environmental benefits to all stakeholders i.e. consumers, employees and communities.
