Andes Adventure

I had an amazing trip! A once in a lifetime experience, and memories I will cherish forever ... the entire experience from booking to trekking was exceptional, I couldn't expect higher standards.

Take an adventure holiday in the HIMALAYA with World Expeditions, one of the world's leading travel companies

Small Group Treks and Adventure Tours in the Himalaya

'Abode of snow' is the Sanskrit word for Himalaya, which aptly describes this great Asian mountain system stretching over 2500 kilometers (1500 miles). The Himalayas have long been associated with great adventurers and mountaineers. This is a destination like no other: remote, majestic and romantic.

World Expeditions has been operating in the Himalaya for 40 years and specialises in responsible travel. We offer small group adventure expeditions in Nepal (Everest and Annapurna regions plus more), Sikkim, Bhutan, Tibet, Pakistan, and the Indian Himalaya (including Ladakh and the Nanda Devi).  Our unrivalled itineraries reflect our long experience in the region.  All our treks are accompanied by a highly experienced local leader ensuring safe acclimatisation at every stage.  You can hike, mountaineer, climb or cycle your way through the homeland of the 'bucket list' adventure holiday.

Follow our Great Himalaya Trail blog to track the progress of our stoic trekkers on the 157-day trek across the incredible spine of the Himalayas. Those completing the full traverse will be among only a handful in history to walk the trail in a single season. The Great Himalaya Trail can be trekked as a full traverse or you can trek one or more of its 7 stages.
