It is all about experience. The Walking and Climbing Company has been providing adventure holidays since 1999. Our goal is for you to experience local culture, mountain lifestyle, and nature in a way you couldn't experience otherwise. So we focus on providing this experience in an approach we have carefully designed through years of practice:
Altitude sickness can affect even the most physically fit person.
If you needed to go down to a lower altitude then higher staffing levels allows this, means you are taken care of and also doesn’t mean the whole group have to go down as well.
Mountains are a challenging place so higher staffing levels increases the care of each individual.
Therefore, in this type of adventure travel where things can be challenging, having the necessary amount of qualified staff is essential to ensure your safety.
Every trip is either lead by one of the company directors - Kalsang Sherpa or another of his highly experienced and qualified leaders. Kalsang is an enormously experienced guide, having climbed for many years with groups on Everest, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Manaslu and Annapurna. This ensures that every trip, easy or hard, is prepared with care and deep knowledge at its core to make sure you have the best experience possible.
Adventure travel is all about experience. Therefore, travelling with smaller groups opens a lot more possibilities for a more personal and in depth experience, and a wonderful bond can be created within the group.
Some companies are not transparent and sell their adventure travel trips for a much cheaper price. However, there is always a catch to it. Look for the hidden costs that will emerge such as essential food and equipment, hotel cost, airport transfers, insurance, permits, lack of porters, etc. Our goal is to be up front and transparent so you can focus on the experience and leave all the planning to us.
“Quite simply, if you are planning a trip to Nepal, Tibet or Bhutan, book through the Walking and Climbing Company. I can’t recommend Susie and Kalsang highly enough for the planning of my trip, value for money, and being well looked after with impeccable customer support from initial contact to getting on the plane back home from Nepal (March / April 2016).
The trip was amazing – a few days in the most relaxing part of Kathmandhu (Bodinath) a long journey up to Everest region for 10 days trekking, and then back to Bodinath.
My guide Kanchha was there to meet me at the airport and then looked after me in a way I simply cannot fault until dropping me back off at the airport at the end of my trip. He had amazing knowledge of the mountains, kept me 100% safe at all times, and I was showen the most amazing hospitality throughout my trip of a lifetime. 10 out of 10.”
“Susie and Kalsang Sherpa Baer made the impossible possible for me! I've never had the confidence to do a trek in the Himalayas because of various limitations to my physical abilities and the solution was to do the trek to the beautiful Gosain Kunda Lakes in the Langtang Region of Nepal on Horseback!! What an amazing experience I've shared and the care and attention to the details so that I succeeded in my goal excelled all my expectations -the support in my preparation beforehand and then the encouragement whilst there was kind, informative and professional. Any one who dreams of doing a trek and lacks the confidence to give it a go, should use The Walking and Climbing Company. With heartfelt thanks for a life affirming experience”
“It is almost 10 months since our trip to EBC. We truly had excellent trip with you and how much we both appreciated your company.
I am still considering to go on another trip to Himalayas if you will take me before I am 80.”

“Rory is back safe and sound and has had an amazing time, thank you so much. He has really enjoyed being with Kalsang, please thank him from me.”
“Just to say a big thank you for organising an amazing trip for Leafy and the gang. They had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. What an experience! A really big thanks too to Kalsang and all the lovely Sherpas and porters who were fantastic apparently! They all adored Kalsang!”
-Sally and Mike
“I am just writing so say a huge thank you for the hard work and time you guys put into the trip for us. It was thoroughly enjoyable and the way Kalsang and the guides looked after us and tended to our every need with a wide smile just shows how great they are at their jobs.”
