Nepal Professional Mountain Guides offer a high quality guiding service in Nepal. We specialise in bespoke and ‘off the beaten path’ treks for individuals and smaller groups of two, four and six people but obviously we can take larger groups

However we find that the more in a group there are, the more distance you put between the local people, wildlife, landscape and the trekkers. Why is that?
Larger groups tend to spend all their time chatting as they trek instead of looking around and observing their surroundings. They often miss out on many things. They are much more regimented, often booked well in advance into accommodation, they have to make that distance that day irrespective of client wishes or capabilities.
If that’s what they want, then it is no problem for us but our philosophy is different. We want you to explore and enjoy the trekking experience, after all, that is the reason that you’ve come to Nepal. In our experience, smaller groups are better and more flexible. If you want to stay a day in an interesting place or change your itinerary, then you can. As an aside, it is easier to book transport and accommodation which is a real boon sometimes.
Our approach is best summed up in an old Sherpa saying:

‘Many people come looking, looking.
Few people see’

We believe that we offer something new and different. A personal service by professional guides whom you pay direct.
A proportion of your fees will be used to help fund a community centre for the day care and education of children.

Environmental Policy

We ask that you use environmentally sound practices whilst in Nepal. Please do not buy any bottled water whilst on trek as currently there are no provisions for disposing of the empty plastic bottles. How to treat water is detailed on this page.

Please bring bio degradable soaps and shampoos and do not pollute the rivers. We recommend bringing a spare plastic bag for rubbish that cannot be burnt. Burnable rubbish can be left in the lodges and non-burnable rubbish should be taken back to Kathmandu. Please take used batteries back home.

Please note that many Nepalis are still traditional in the way they dress. Out of respect we ask you to dress conservatively – sleeveless tops and shorts are not acceptable. Women can wear long skirts but trousers are preferable. Temples and monasteries are places of worship so please be respectful when visiting them and whilst taking photographs. Take your shoes off  at the door.
