Meet the team:
David established Experience the Himalayas with the desire to provide a high quality and value for money specialised trekking company. He identified a gap in the market when he became frustrated with the online travel booking experience. Customers lacked the ability to simply go online, select a suitable trek/price/date, pay, and go trekking in Nepal. In fact, there were no options besides paying a huge premium and booking with global tour operators.
David read a book on Nepal and the Himalayas in 2003 when studying for his accountancy exams in a remote manor house in Wales. After passing all his exams, David flew straight to Kathmandu and went trekking for 3 months. He has been returning ever since - first on his own, and then with groups that got bigger and bigger.

Raj brings a wealth of trekking experience to Experience the Himalayas. With over 20 years in the industry, Raj possesses the operational and local knowledge that is key to our success in providing treks with a cultural insight. Raj's expertise really comes to life when we are requested to organise specific treks and services that are not offered on our website.
In an effort to promote ethical and sustainable tourism, all guides are locals, experienced, and speak English. We believe that the trekking packages we provide offer tourists a more genuine cultural experience, while also contributing to the local economy in Nepal.
