DOSSIER: Also at Home Elsewhere in the Himalaya


It is the practice of organisastions to be proving their present prowess by speaking of past success. Ours is a remarkable story: since 1984, when the company was incorporated, our story has been unique among travellers to the Himalaya, and our story has a lot to do with you if you’re thinking of doing something properly.

Himalayan Encounters means an adventurous sense of enquiry and fun, backed by experience and thorough planning; individuals or a group travelling by a single maxim of wanting to see, to feel and to understand.

Our expertise and operations stretch beyond Nepal’s borders, to the neighbouring lands of Tibet and Bhutan. Our aim here is to put you in touch with the nature and realities of these still somewhat remote regions, their peoples, cultures and rich traditions.
