About Us

 

Higher Path Treks and Expedition is a legally recognized adventure company operating in the forefront of Nepali Tourism. Based in Kapan, Kathmandu, the company is the product of a partnership between two passionate souls, Karma Geljen Sherpa and Glen Young (Director in the USA). Karma Geljen Sherpa, the Director of the company in Nepal, was born and raised at Sibuje village in Everest region. While growing up, Mr. Karma began to apprehend the beauty of the glorious mountains and grew an unprecedented love for them. He has since then, dedicated all his actions to spread the magnificence of the Himalayas all over the world. However, no great feat comes without a small start. Mr. Karma has a humble background of working as the porter and guide at the kick-start of his career in 1999. Since his advent in travel and tourism, he has successfully led numerous campaigns to the lap of the Himalayas. One such instance is his maiden expedition as a trek leader in which he led the climb to 3 peaks in 25 days that included Pachermo (6273 m), Lobuche peak (6119 m) and Ama Dablam (6845 m). The expedition was a huge a huge success and was a cornerstone to lead the company on a meteoric rise on the face of Nepalese tourism.

With the sole purpose of providing vivid experience to the clients, Higher Path Treks and Expedition has received accolades from a ton of international tourists with the company harboring 70% of its clients from the USA and remaining 30% from India and European countries. Due to our ethical approach to our work and passionate team, both our trip packages and services have been a subject of great admiration. The grounds that we operate on are laid with detailed research and praiseworthy conveyance. Moreover, we make sure that our staffs such as guides and porters have ample wages and provisions with a daily wage of the minimum of 10% from the trip. Our noteworthy contributions to sustainable tourism also have been gathering a huge interest and compliments from various parties. Additionally, we emphasize the well-being and prosperity of the regions we conduct our trips on with Karma project being a small initiation to expand the horizons of our contribution.
