Custom Made Tours and Trekking
We have carefully designed our trip itineraries in a way that suits a majority of our travelers. We are also very flexible in organizing tailor made trips to suit your expectations. We want to give you complete freedom in designing your trip.

Sustainable Tourism
We operate our company on the principles of sustainable tourism. We constantly ensure that we are making a positive impact on the local environment and the communities we visit. During our trips, all waste is properly disposed of without negatively affecting the environment. Trees and brush are not cut down for cooking fuel, as we pack our gas canisters into and out of the wilderness areas. Campsites are left wild and clean. Cultural heritage sites are respected and preserved. Most importantly, we honor and enrich the lives of the villagers we meet.

Giving Back
Many of the employees at Classic Himalaya volunteer and support schools within Nepal. Others work within their local communities doing charitable work in a plethora of ways: charitable donations, community service, sponsoring student’s tuition, or serving as elected officials. Many of our clients have visited the Nepal Orphans Home, which we also support. In 2005 Michael Hess changed his life and the lives of many Nepalese children. He quit his job in America, sold his home, and moved to Kathmandu and started to care for the destitute children he came in contact with. Nepal Orphans Home now encompasses five (5) homes that care for 150+ children. Please go to the website and read “About Nepal Orphans Home”. http://www.nepalorphanshome.org
