Providing Outstanding Travel Services and Assistance
The Himalayas. The name alone conjures up an aura of majesty and mystery. Craggy, jagged snow-capped peaks, narrow valleys; wind-whipped Buddhist prayer flags flapping in narrow mountain passes; grazing yaks, mule trains; saffron-clad monks and chants … Everything that you have heard is real; nothing that you have heard can prepare you for the magnificence of experiencing it firsthand.
The countries that contain the Himalayas – or more accurately, “that are contained within the Himalayas” – Nepal, Bhutan, Tibet, India – share the exotic mystique. Once, not very long ago, only the most intrepid adventurer or multi-millionaire would have access to this isolated part of the world. For the rest of us, it was as inaccessible as a journey to Mars. We could only gaze at the photographs and read the articles in the National Geographic magazine or some mountaineering journal. Happily, this is no longer the case.
Trek and Tours, owned and operated by the experienced Sherpas of the Himalaya, offers a wide range of unique trekking and tours trips throughout the Himalayan region. The more sedentary tourist can opt for a city tour that will include the chance to shop the market and back-street bazaars as well as learn about the culture and heritage of this exciting part of the world. The more adventurous can take a multi-day whitewater rafting trip through a panorama of stark canyon cliffs, terraced fields and isolated villages that have changed little over the past millennium. Tours to observe religious pilgrimages and learn about the unique Buddhist culture can be combined with a jungle safari on elephants. One can hike a day, a fortnight or a month, walking along dirt paths that connect small villages that have never known motorized transport. The more experienced mountaineers can challenge themselves and add to their life list by being part of an expedition to submit one or several of the eight highest mountains in the world. The choice is yours.
The wide range of options that Trek and Tours offer means that your experience will be what you have always dreamed it to be. You needn’t settle for anything less. And if there is not a fixed departure tour that offers you what you wish, Trek and Tours will create a customized, private tour for you. All at prices so reasonable, you will be dreaming and planning your next Himalayan adventure as soon as you finish this one.
TrekandTours is also focused on helping the local community in Nepal by providing livelihood, assisting underprivileged children with their education and giving back to them by sharing the blessings. Trek and Tours strongly believe that every business should be committed to helping their neighbourhood and society as they would not be there without the support and help of their own community.
