Our Travel Philosophy



We know that a great travel experience doesn't begin and end on the trail. Perhaps you've heard the phrase "it's the little things that make the biggest difference." At Great Himalayan Journeys, we take that philosophy to heart. It is the driving force in every plan we make and in every country lane, village, or wilderness we explore. We start with our love and appreciation of the world's most breathtaking and interesting destinations. We interject the elements of adventure and activity that stimulate our souls and enliven our minds. Whether you are looking for a challenging physical expedition or enjoy a balanced approach combining active and leisurely exploration, Great Himalayan Journeys has a trip to match your sense of adventure. The common thread is that each journey offers the opportunity for Active Adventures, Cultural Encounters, and Authentic Experiences.



To provide an exceptional and personal adventure travel experience with inspired itineraries, breathtaking locations, and expert leaders that uncovers hidden gems at each destination. An authentic regional experience with top-notch accommodations and excellent cuisine that safely challenges the adventurer in all of us.



When it comes to a memorable experience, we know it's not just where you travel, but how you travel that makes all the difference. For that reason we seek out the very best locally run hotels and inns, and We may even sleep under the stars. From rustic mountain refuges to luxurious seaside inns, the Great Himalayan Journeys team has discovered the most charming and well-located accommodations and most spectacular camping sites that are the perfect complement to days spent exploring.



Experiencing the local cuisine is an important part of the adventure, which is why the fare on our tours reflects the best flavors of each region. Your cultural experience is enhanced by enjoying traditional foods with unique histories. When staying in hotels, country inns, or lodges, you will dine in intimate settings on fine local dish, or a secret family recipe passed down through the generations.



A Great Himalayan Journeys traveler is energetic, active, and has a spirit of adventure. They may be friends, couples, singles, or families with a common curiosity about the world and a desire to experience life's greatest adventures. They range in age reminding us all that we are never too young or too old to dream, explore, and discover.



Although the camaraderie of a group of like-minded travelers often enhances the journey, there can be too much of a good thing! That is why we generally limit our groups to just 16 guests, with 8 to 10 guests being the average. Keeping our groups small allows us to travel softly, having less impact on our surroundings.
