Expedition Experience

It was mountaineering that first put Nepal on the tourism map when, in 1953, Mount Everest was successfully climbed for the first time. Nepal is more than just Everest. No fewer than eight of the fourteen 8000 metre peaks lie within her borders along with innumerable lesser peaks between 6000 and 8000 metres high. Many of these peaks are open for mountaineering expeditions to attempt.

Ne-Ko treks is a leading specialist for arranging mountaineering expeditions throughout Nepal and Tibet. We have organised successful climbs on some of the highest and hardest peaks in the region.

With many years of experience in the field we have built up a reputation for having some of the best mountaineering staff in the business and these are backed up by high quality equipment. Our skill in making all of the complicated logistical arrangements will ensure that you are free to concentrate on the business of climbing.
