About Us

Expedition Base is about bringing the mountains to you in a way you want to experience them. There are many expedition and trekking companies to choose from. But, Expedition Base prides itself on a different offering: premier services, experienced guides, varying trip options to choose from, including trips not ordinarily available from many companies. And, all at a reasonable price.

Expedition Base is about safety, responsibility and fun in the mountains – whether trekking, climbing, ice climbing or participating in a course, if you decide to join Expedition Base as a client, you know you are joining a great and dedicated team, committed to facilitating and creating the best experience possible for you in the mountains.  Expect an adventure with an experienced and committed team, who know the mountains and are experienced to take you there.  Expedition Base is a local Nepal company, with partnership and support from around the world from experienced climbers and guides to deliver experiences world-wide.

We strive to provide excellent service both on and off the mountains and trails, and for that service to be personalised to suit your preferences and needs.  We want you to be able to book with us and to be able to ask all the questions you need to ask so that you get the experience you are expecting and one that gives you the fun, skills, challenge and safety framework that you are wanting.

Our team members have a solid history of repeat clients who trek, climb and learn with our team members on different mountains and in different countries and we want to continue those special relationships and develop new ones for many years to come.

Also, we invite you to check in with us regularly and you will see new trip offerings over time - we have an awesome selection of trips for you.   We also consult with our clients to find out what they want to do on the trails and in the mountains, and aim to develop more trips that clients are keen to see us offer.   So, essentially, there is more to come!

You will see that some trips have more than one type of costing with prices 'starting from'.   As we often personalise experiences for clients the prices can differ.   But, for what you see on the website, prices shown are for the inclusions / exclusions outlined.   If you ask for a different offering then we will price it for you - nice and simple.

Our prices are based on a full service offering - and we consider our services to be some of the best you will experience on the mountains and trails, at very reasonable prices. If you want a differing service offering for the mountain trips (base camp service plus route setting allocation or a hybrid service) please contact us because for certain mountains it is possible we can provide you with what you need, again at a reasonable price.

We look forward to serving you and spending time with you in the mountains and on the trails.

Best wishes from the Expedition Base team.

PS. We hope you like our website.   We have more work to do but any feedback you have is most welcomed.
