Expeditions and Trekking in the Himalaya
Whether on a climbing expedition or a trekking adventure in the Himalaya, every mountain enthusiast should visit the Himalaya. With options for fit hikers and experienced mountaineers alike, the Himalaya has a lot to offer. The landscape and its people are inseparable and yet are often in stark contrast with one another. The Sherpa and Tibetan peoples have been living in the high mountains of the Himalaya for 50,000 years and have rich traditions entwined with their mountain surroundings. They are an incredibly warm and generous people, which can provide a wonderful respite from the high, cold environs of their surrounding peaks.
The scenic beauty of the Himalaya unfolds as climbers ascend further up its deep valley corridors to the higher elevations and their base camps. Legendary peaks come into view and then, days later, dominate your field of view, and perhaps plant the seeds of future adventures. Ama Dablam, Baruntse, Imja Tse, Lhotse, Chomolungma–their names are steeped in the rich tradition of mountaineering and to see them, let alone attempt to climb on their flanks, should be on every adventure tourist and climber’s bucket list.
