Himalayan Trekking and Expedition Planning
To arrange a trek, tour, or expedition in Nepal, Tibet, or other areas in the Himalayan region, please contact me by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. I work with my friend Niru Rai's Nepal-based company, Adventure GeoTreks Ltd. AGT will custom design a trek, mountaineering expedition, or tour for you or a group in any area within the Himalayan region.
AGT’s Website is www.adventuregeotreks.com
I am not a guide. I provide advice and information based upon my experiences of trekking and climbing in Nepal and the Himalayas since 1995.
Using AGT rather than a "Western" guiding company will generally save clients one-third to half the cost of a trek, tour, or expedition. Employing a Western guiding company adds significant cost in salary and transportation. The Western guide usually expects the largest tip of the staff. Yet, Western companies use local outfitter companies to staff their Himalayan tours and treks. Western companies also expect a greater profit margin than Nepal-based companies.
All of AGT's guides/sirdars speak English and the major European and Asian languages. AGT can staff treks in the delightful custom established by British aristocrats with Sherpas in the early 20th Century. Clients can choose tent camping or teahouse/lodge accommodations. For those who want to experience the spectacular views and rich cultural life of the Himalayas without trekking or climbing, AGT arranges tours by vehicle and airplane/helicopter. Glowing references will be provided and can be reviewed on AGT’s website.
My books, You Have to Get Lost Before You Can Be Found (www.amazon.com/You-Have-Lost-Expeditions to Nepal-India-Tibet Himalayas in 2020:
Before-Found/dp/1696951860) and Bringing Progress to Paradise (www.amazon.com/Bringing-Progress-Paradise-Mountain-Village/dp/1573244821) describe trekking and mountaineering experiences with AGT and other outfitters.I am advising tourists, trekkers, and climbers who want to plan tours or expeditions most anywhere in the Himalayan Region. If you are interested in joining a group or planning your own travel adventure, please contact me.
Sydney Frymire, Basa Foundation member, leads "voluntourism" trips and "yoga treks" every year. A voluntourism trip includes a service component for the members along with in-depth cultural experiences. Sidney's yoga treks include visits to ashrams, experiences of different yoga disciplines, and "easy" trekking. Please contact me for more information on joining one of Sydney's groupsNiru Rai, owner of AGT, develops specific itineraries and costs for these expeditions. After you know the details of the programs and cost, you can then decide if you would like to join a group.If you have a group of your own, or want to design your own expedition or tour using AGT staff, let me know and Niru and I will develop a plan with you.
