Why book with us
We're Trusted 100% local Sherpa Company
As a Sherpa We have been Guiding many tourists and climbers in the Everest region for the last 20 years to show them our Sherpa tradition and history of Everest to give them life time experience that we are so proud of and now it's so sad to hear that today low cost trekking companies in Nepal who are selling cheap trekking package to innocent tourist to Everest region are falling into a big scam. There are many trekking companies, who have no passion for the mountains, environment and social responsibilities. Their guides from those companies are there to make you sick not make your trip a lifetime unforgettable. They will evacuate you by helicopter so that they too get a cut of the commission. It’s really sick and pathetic. We request you to book a trek to Nepal with expert 100% local Sherpa Company like Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions.Who genuinely appreciate your business and will make sure you have a great time in Nepal. Fake helicopter rescue means rescuing the entire tourist who had been cheated by guide & company owner while trekking in high altitude for providing inorganic food.
We highly recommend you to have extra 1 or 2 days in Kathmandu before you start your trek. Two nights in Kathmandu prior to start trek would help you to get over jet lag after long flight & to get well prepared. The extra night will enable this & will absolutely decrease your pre-trek pressure level. Also Sometimes Domestic flight might be delays or cancel in Nepal so we need to keep extra contingency days. Looking for the perfect itinerary? Our 16 days Everest base camp trek itinerary is Perfect and suitable for all level travellers.

They arrange and carry all. They are always the last to leave a Lodge/campsite and first to arrive. We try to repay their effort with better treatment than any other company provides.

We work with this village to ensure their families have all the tools they need and their children are set for school. We donate books, computers and even a teacher and have brought clients to help whenever interested. We are lucky to have these guys and will always think of special ways to honor them.
GIVING BACK TO COMMUNITY
Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions was created with the purpose to give back. It is very important for those who can to help those who can't. We don't see this happening enough in Nepal and it was the inspiration for this company. We work closely with one of the main supporters of Mountain Sherpa Foundation, A non-political and non-profit social organization. Our foundation provides much-needed head start scholarships to less fortunate Sherpa children. In Nepal many children grow up in remote mountain villages, deprived of basic education. The Mountain Sherpa Foundation mission is to help the next generation find their way to a brighter future. For every booking of your trip, a small donation is made to this fund to provide full education scholarships to children. So far, we have 7 children in our program, and it grows every year. By doing this, we honor the dreams of our elders to make a better world. Although the Mountain Sherpa foundation is supported by Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expedition, we always welcome kindness of friends.

You should certainly get adequate travel and trekking insurance from a trustworthy insurance provider. As a responsible Sherpa company, we strongly advise that you have your own travel insurance. Before purchasing insurance policy, you need to confirm that you are covered for high altitude trekking up to 6,000 meters for helicopter evacuations. Most travel insurance providers do not include this under their standard packages and therefore it needs to be selected separately.
