World Expeditions offers the most comprehensive range of treks and adventure tours in Nepal.
The Himalaya Specialists
We have been operating in Nepal since 1975, developing innovative and unrivalled trekking and touring itineraries for all fitness levels that showcase our experience and speak to our reputation as the Himalayan trekking specialists. It is our commitment to sustainable practices used on all of our Nepal itineraries that underpin the success of our program. Since the 1970s we have always strived to keep our environmental footprint as small as possible and to give back to the many beautiful people and villages we pass through. Read about our commitment to responsible travel in the Himalaya.
We believe that a camping-based trek is the most sustainable kind, which is why we have built our permanent campsites in the Everest and Annapurna regions in Nepal. All campsites are exclusive to World Expeditions and offer a comfortable and truly unique experience for our trekkers in the Himalaya. Learn more about staying at our permanent campsites.
Types of Adventures
Though most visit Nepal to trek in the world's highest mountain ranges, there are less strenuous itineraries that appeal to those who have an adventurous spirit but may not want a tough physical challenge. For trekkers, our adventures range in grade from introductory to challenging. We also have a well respected mountaineering program, working with the world's most renowned climbers and experienced local leaders.

The Regions of Nepal
We invite you to discover the diverse regions of Nepal, where you can explore the unique landscapes and cultures.
ANNAPURNA – The Annapurna region offers walkers a unique blend of nature and culture. It is warm with hospitality and people who always stop to say ‘namaste’. The region is teaming with vantage points that offer views of some of the Himalaya’s most beautiful ranges, Annapurna and Dhaulagiri. There are plenty of adventures to choose from in the Annapurna, with something for everyone from the Ultimate Annapurna Dhaulagiri to Annapurna Chitwan. Most of our treks will enjoy the comforts of our exclusive permanent campsites along the trail. View all treks & tours in the Annapurna region.
EVEREST – For the serious adventurer, Everest Base Camp is a must-do. Experience the thrill of trekking the paths of some of the most famous and bravest mountaineers in history. To avoid the busier trails to base camp, trek to the tranquil turquoise lakes of the Gokyo Valley, all the while still feeling the majesty of Everest towering above. Ascend Gokyo Ri for the best panoramic views of Everest and surrounding peaks. From the shorter Ama Dablam Base Camp Trek and Everest Trek to the all encompassing Everest High Passes, this region is best experienced from the comfort of our private permanent campsites. View all treks & tours in the Everest region.
DOLPO – Closed to trekkers until 1996, the Dolpo area is one of the last bastions of true Tibetan culture. Wild and remote, Dolpo is largely untouched by the modern world. With high, arid plateaus scarred by deep canyons, this windswept region is home to Phoksumdo Lake, a site of astounding beauty. Trek responsibly, with respect for the local culture and environment, by joining one of our treks in the Dolpo region.
MUSTANG – Upper Mustang was still a part of Tibet until 150 years ago and is, like Dolpo, one of the last stands of traditional Tibetan culture. This restricted area is situated to the north of the Annapurna region, and borders Tibet. The terrain is semi-arid desert with deep ravines and rock shelves, sprinkled with simple monasteries and chortens, reflecting Buddhist culture. View all treks in the Mustang region.
KANCHENJUNGA – Eastern Nepal is characterised by great diversity of ethnic groups, flora and fauna and some of the most outstanding vistas anywhere in the Himalaya. Huge peaks dominate the landscape in this region from Pyramid Peak, Jannu, the Twins and of course Kanchenjunga (8586m). This is truly a remote and beautiful destination for those seeking a challenging adventure. View all treks and tours in the Kanchenjunga region.
MANASLU – The Manaslu region is primarily Buddhist and is one of the most beautiful areas of Nepal, with huge valleys, extensive forests and lovely villages dotted along the trekking trails. There are a limited number of trekkers in this region due to restricted access, allowing you to get an authentic insight into the local culture. View all treks in the Manaslu region.
LANGTANG – This region is often unheard of compared to the giants of Annapurna and Everest. However, a trek in the Langtang region offers visitors a glimpse into traditional village life amid a picturesque alpine wilderness, and affords brilliant views of the magnificent peaks of Langtang (7234m) and Ganesh (7446m). For greater cultural interaction, the Tamang Heritage Trail, located between Langtang and Ganesh Himal, is a rewarding short trek that encompasses peaceful villages, terraced fields and gentle valleys as well as the natural hotsprings of Tatopani. View all treks and tours in the Langtang region.
THE GREAT HIMALAYA TRAIL is the world’s longest and highest alpine walking tracks, winding 4500km from Tibet to Pakistan. World Expeditions was the first operator to offer a commercial traverse of the Nepal section (1700km) as a 152 day trek. If you don’t have five months to spare, consider joining one of our seven sections, each a remote, challenging and rewarding adventure in some of Nepal’s least travelled regions.
