Dear Highlander, Thank you so much for an amazing trip! We had a real good time! Thanks for being so flexible and getting us home a day earlier. Pemba is the coolest S

Simone, Henriette, Julie, Mikkel and Cecile

Thank you for the trekking to Ghorepani and Poonhill. The trek was beautiful, the Daal Bhaat was tasty, my guide's experience and the service left nothing to complain about! Wish


Why Associate with Highlander

Highlander stands for fair and eco-friendly traveling. We take a good care of our staff and are definitely a lot more than just a trekking company.

Working condition for staff

Our staff is fully covered with medical insurance.

In order to be able to maintain highly competent and professional staff, we are paying the salaries on a scale higher than average. 

Eco- friendly

We realize that preserving our nature and environment is most important for the future of our country and the whole world.

Our staff is well advised on environmental issues and will always do their best to reduce damage to the environment to the minimal. We only leave biodegradable garbage behind, even though this means additional incurring costs for us. But since we are looking at the longevity of the tourism sector, we consider this as an investment for our future generation.

Highlander does not use firewood for cooking to preserve the forests. 

We are sponsoring a recycling project in the Kathmandu Valley.

Social work

Well aware of the impact trekking has on the rural areas as well as the established routes, we have committed ourselves to giving back to the communities where we travel.

Highlander is extending its hands to organise free mobile health camps in the remote areas of Nepal, and is also working to support community and public schools and provide educational opportunities to children from rural and marginalized backgrounds.

Likewise, Highlander is actively engaged in environmental awareness raising programs. We also appeal to our friends/guests to join us in the noble cause and support the communities and individuals in need.
