Trekker Nepal was started by a group of trained and experienced trekking professionals (two distinct kinds) with a combination of both having long experience in the sector and young and energetic professionals with the fresh unorthodox look of the sector.
Nepal is a unique trekking destination due to the combination of various factors such as nature, geography, the presence of several kinds climate and weather within a small area, varieties of ethnic groups and their distinct culture and lifestyle, beautiful hills and tall mountains. We aim to deliver this uniqueness to our clients as closely as possible.
Nepal has many possible trekking areas but many of them remain in the shadow. We focus primarily on the less traveled and the unexplored areas of Nepal while also serving the popular trekking routes within Nepal. We have been making our effort to connect people and empower remote local communities through the connections we make.
Wangda Sherpa founder of Trekker Nepal was born in a small village located in the lower Everest region called Phedi (Okhaldhunga) and completed his higher secondary education from his own village. After his high school, he worked as a porter for an American couple to Everest Base Camp. The trek went very well for him because the couple decided to sponsor him for university education in private college. He got the opportunity to study tourism for two years.
His father (Lakpa Sherpa) has been working in the trekking since last three decades as a certified trekking guide and he has earned good experience. Therefore Trekker Nepal is a trekking company operated by family members.
Phurba Sherpa is a female guide and her aim is to climb Mt. Everest in near future therefore at the moment she is preparing for her big target by doing mountaineering related course (Basic Mountaineering, Advanced Mountaineering).
Trekking and Mountain climbing has been one of the main income sources for many Sherpa family. Sherpa is known by many people in the world because of hard working in the mountain and the world records set by the Sherpas to climb high mountains.
Sherpa lives in the mountain region of Nepal especially in the high altitude, therefore getting high altitude sickness is comparatively lower than other people. A recent research has revealed the biological functioning of Sherpas, saying Sherpa superhuman mountaineers. Sherpas are working in Mountaineering industry to set high camps, fix ropes and help during the climbing of high Mountains in the world.
The incomes of the trekking porters are not sufficient to support their children to get a quality education, therefore, Trekker Nepal aims to provide educational support to the children of trekking porters working in this company. To make a successful and enjoyable trip each and every trekking crew plays the same role, therefore, it is also important to make sure they also get a better life for themselves and their families. Trekker Nepal is very conscious on this issue so they give the same priority to all the staffs (Guide, Cook, Kitchen Staffs, and Porters).
Trekker Nepal’s aim is to create a working opportunity for the unemployed youth of Nepal because nowadays every day more than a thousand young people they just leave the country to get some money to support their family. In the future, we aim to provide direct financial assistance in their children’s education if the company grows large enough to sustain such costs.
At the moment, Trekker Nepal is working together with charity organization from the UK to reconstruct primary school in lower Everest region (Okhaldhunga), the school was completely destructed by the earthquake 2015.
Lower Everest Region has very high trekking potential, beautiful mountain views, diverse culture, traditions, customize trekking route and itinerary (from short to long trek), high Mountain View zones are the main attractions of Lower Everest Region but it is still not discovered largely. As being a local of this region Trekker Nepal’s first priority is to promote trekking routes located in Lower Everest Region.

I feel lucky that my first trek in Nepal was with Wangda. His route to Pikey Peak was unique– it was a privilege to stay in his family home and with his other family members throughout the trek. We learnt about Sherpa life and culture first-hand and enjoyed many freshly prepared meals, which were extra satisfying after a day of trekking. Wangda and his four porters went out of their way to make sure we were well-fed, safe and comfortable. The
trek was fantastic – especially the walk along the ridge with great mountain views to the Pikey base camp (where we had a brilliantly memorable evening dancing around to traditional Sherpa songs and drinking the local rakshi) and from the peak down through forests to the picturesque town of Junbesi, which is full of orchards. The peak was incredible we had a panoramic 360-degree view that encompassed Annapurna and the Everest range at sunrise – and it was all to ourselves too. Wangda is also great fun with a sense of humour- he kept us entertained throughout.
I hope to go back to Nepal one day and now I’ve been on a trek with Wangda, I wouldn’t want to go with any other guide.

I have recently returned from a trek to Pikey Peak with Wangda Sherpa as our guide. It was my second visit to Nepal.
The previous time was to the Annapurna region with Wangda’s father Lakpa as our guide. This time we were looking for a trek in a less commercialised region, with a chance to discover more about Sherpa culture and traditions,
which is exactly what we got. Staying in Sherpa houses and finding out about their way of life, gave us a unique insight into the lives of these proud and resourceful people. Wangda was a superb guide. The trek to Pikey Peak took us through some beautiful mountain countryside with amazing views including the whole of the Everest range. Wangda ensured our comfort and safety at all times, whilst he was only too happy to answer all our questions about the country and people. Thanks to him the whole trip was a wonderful and memorable experience from start to finish.

“For me, the walk with Wangda to Peekey Peak was the trip of a lifetime. I’d never travelled anywhere challenging before and was both excited and apprehensive about it, as I have dietary needs and a chronic health condition. I needn’t have worried as Wangda and his team took great care and always ensured that we were well fed and hydrated – wherever we went there were always plenty of hot drinks and extra portions, if we wanted them. This isn’t a trip for the faint hearted – some of the accommodation is pretty basic – but it gives you a unique insight into the lives of the Sherpa people. They are tough, kind and good humoured. They may lack materially but this is more than compensated by their culture, community and family ties, and their love of the Himalayas.”
We had a fabulous time trekking around Wangda’s homeland. The whole trip was a great adventure from the jeep ride out of Kathmandu, the hospitality and friendship of the Sherpa people, the fantastic scenery and of course sunrise over Everest.
Every day was different, the food always freshly cooked, tasty and well portioned. We stayed in Sherpa homesteads and spent many an evening enjoying their hospitality, eating, drinking and dancing.Wangda and his team were brilliant, a great sense of humour, very knowledgeable and an admirable command of English from their leader. Also quite sensitive to our western needs so they took some cereals, coffee, and snickers for us -a nice touch!
A real adventure to be treasured forever!
In September 2017, my wife and I went an unforgettably amazing trek in the Mustang region with Lakpa. In addition to being a very experienced and trained guide, Lakpa is also a Buddhist monk and was able to show us the cultural depth of this traditional region better than we could have ever imagined.Upon our return to Kathmandu, Wangda took great care of us, taking us to must-see places such as the Patan Museum and Patan palace. Wangda made our visit fascinating by describing the various religious rites and cultures, putting it all into context for us.In addition to their guide activities both Lakpa and Wangda are very involved in development projects in and around their village in Eastern Nepal, including projects to rebuild damaged schools, finding funding for much-needed school resources (book bags, solar lights for doing homework, etc.). My wife and I were deeply moved by both Lakpa and Wangda as through their openness, generosity, and professionalism.- Brian Smith (Mustang Tour and Kathmandu valley trips, September 2017)Germany”
Last April I went on a beautiful trekking to Annapurna Basecamp with Wangda. Wangda is a very good guide and the trekking became a special trip because of all the interesting conversations we had and everything he told me about Nepal, India, and Buddhism among other things. Already during my trip I was fantasizing about the next trekking I want to do with Wangda and now that I’m back in Holland… I have to decide when to go; this year or next year?
