Meet the team:

David Cassidy: Head of Business Development

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.   


James Woodmancy: Technical Director

James is the IT guru behind the scenes at Experience the Himalayas. James oversees the website design process and programmes the backend. James's responsibilities includes IT development, IT infrastructure, and online advertising. He has an extensive knowledge and experience in various programming languages and has been showcasing his talents around London for numerous years.


Bijay Neupane: Head of Kathmandu Office

Bijay is based in the Kathmandu office but has previously lived in London for numerous years.  Bijay makes life easy for our customers by collecting them form the airport, arranging trekking permits, organising group dinners, and attending to any specific needs of tourists such as exchanging money or going to the pharmacy. 


Rajendra Dahal: Head of Trekking

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.


Guides and Porters

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.
