Brief Introduction

The Himalayan Kingdom, NEPAL boasts of having EIGHT OF THE TEN HIGHEST PEAKS IN THE WORLD. The dauntless icy peaks have, since time unmemorable, challenged the minds and bodies of those who dare!

Currently, there are 276 peaks opened for Mountaineering and Peak Climbing, including the highest of them all - Mt. Everest. ECO ADVENTURES OFFER A COMPLETE RANGE OF PEAK CLIMBING AND MOUNTAINEERING EXPEDITION SERVICES FOR ALL THE NEPAL AND TIBET HIMALAYAS. Mountaineering Teams can choose to take all or part of our services:


Permit Acquisition - Highland Sherpa Team
Official Formalities - All Transport Requirements
Full Base Camp Support - Customs Clearance and More.


We are all too aware of the effects that a rarefied atmosphere can have on the human body, so every expedition we operate includes a realistic acclimatization program. Acclimatization takes time and there are no safe shortcuts.

Any expedition itinerary in this content can be arranged for private groups. You can cut costs with the self-led expedition option. Give us the organizational worries of your own expedition. Going private is an increasingly popular option, which has some distinct advantages:
The cost of going private can be surprisingly reasonable, particularly if you take the self-led option. Whether your expedition idea is clear or completely vague, you are welcome to contact us for an initial disc.
