Shorter "Add-On" Excursions Enhance Any Big Trip Plan!

Himalayan High Treks offers excellent short add–on trips too. If you want to enhance your main HHT trip (or even if you
happen to be in Kathmandu on a business trip) consider how a short safari, rafting or adventure trip can add more to your stay.
How about a wildlife safari in Nepal or a short trek through mysterious Bhutan? We can do that! We know the sights and you know the dates...
it's easy to add to your experience!     Here are some examples to consider.

Himalayan High Treks "Trip Activity–Level" Ratings:

Can you do it?       How Hard Can It Be?

Here's The Key!

Mild: Little to no camping. Accommodations are most often in comfortable guest houses or small hotels. Hiking is usually mild and can include day hikes of less than four hours in length, which may or may not be at high altitude — depending on the trip. Vehicle time can become long with some fatigue on rough roads.

Moderate: Usually involves hiking an average of four to six hours each day — with some trekking time being spent at high altitude. Accommodations consist of evenings spent at tea or guest houses and tent camping along the trail.

Strenuous: Usually involves high-altitude hiking, crossing passes and/or climbing peaks as high as 18,000 feet. Daily hiking is extensive — sometimes for as much as eight or nine hours. These trips are also longer in overall duration and are designed for experienced hikers who want to be challenged. Scheduled treks do not require technical climbing skills and include days for rest, but overall these trips are arduous and are meant for hearty hikers.

Remember the primary differences between 'trekking' and 'backpacking': On each of our Small–Group Trips, you never carry more than a day pack with your personal items. While on the trail, three daily meals and accommodation are provided — horses, yaks or porters carry the complete expedition load, as well as your own items, along the rugged mountain trails.

Highlights For All Himalayan High Treks Scheduled Small–Group Trips:

 Our scheduled trips take the guesswork out of a complicated journey to southern Asia — we know our way around! Scheduled Trips are designed from our own personal experiences to provide you with the best proven highlights, weather and trail–routes at the optimum times each year. The difficulty rating for each trip is based on the realities of high mountain trekking for those with limited high–altitude experience. We choose camping areas, guesthouses and lodges — with an eye for cleanliness, safety and price (mountain lodgings are often rustic but our choices represent the best available). An English–speaking local guide accompanies each trip to maximize your enrichment and communication throughout the journey. The crew (including their ponies or yaks) support your trip as liaisons, cooks and porters. Our detailed planning and enthusiastic staff ensure an outstanding and unique adventure filled with amazing memories! It's a fact that many travelers and trekkers return to Himalayan High Treks year after year to explore different areas and countries.

While each trip is unique, our Small–Group Scheduled Trips are all designed to give you a comprehensive experience from the time you arrive and are welcomed at the meeting point, until we bid you farewell as you return home.

    Scheduled Small–Group Trip Highlights:

  • Pre-trip consultations, comprehensive program information and resources to ensure you get the most from your trip.
  • A qualified trip leader, experienced and knowledgeable in the natural history and culture of the area you travel.
    Each leader is trained and certified in first aid and emergency procedures who is responsible for each group and their safety.
  • A local guide (born and living where you travel) who is an expert in regional traditions, communities and current conditions — also manages the trip's staff.
  • Safe ground transportation and driver are provided throughout tours and for traveling long distances by road to/from the trailheads for treks.
  • Trip costs are based on double occupancy accommodations. Single accommodations (subject to availability) can be available with a supplement. See each trip page for more.
  • A support crew of Sherpas, Porters, Cooks, Horsemen and Packers accompany you on the trail.
    Yaks, horses or porters carry everything while on trek — you only carry a day pack with your personal essentials!
  • Group camp equipment is provided: tents, tables, stoves, latrine, kitchen and trip supplies needed for the rigors of each program.
  • Three daily meals are offered while on trek. All provided meals for every trip are specified in each daily trip itinerary description.
