Amongst the crowd of new adventure companies sprouting every day, Seven Summit Treks has something of a history, culture, and experience that comes with it. With years of experience in catering to the needs of our clients spread throughout the world, we now have thousands of satisfied customers who strongly recommend Seven Summit Treks. We have been standing out for our technical infallibility, excellent management, and sincerity in providing services. Be it a trek across the vast stretches of rolling hills or the expedition to the summit of majestic peaks, we are here to help you reclaim freedom and wilderness. Established back in 2010 AD, we have already aided a generation of nature enthusiasts to discover the bewildering beauty and the incomparable splendor of the Himalayas. And if you have cravings to get in touch with nature, dive deep inside its beauty, and get back, rejuvenated, Seven Summit Treks welcomes you to Nepal.

We offer a wide range of services, and although we are based in Nepal, we already have a wide network spread in China and Pakistan. We have guides, Sherpas, and leaders who have years of experience tussling with nature and then befriending it. Our purpose is to facilitate the client’s goal, whether it be mingling with nature, or conquering it. Be that in China or Pakistan, we will accompany you anywhere and still provide service with a sense of confidence and delight. We are proud to acknowledge that, our guides are people who find pleasure in the wide embrace of nature and they keep the safety of our clients, which is their number one priority.

Seven Summit Treks has employed hundreds of Sherpa people, who belong to an underprivileged minority caste in Nepal. This has brought about significant change in their quality of life. We feel a great sense of accomplishment for facilitating many young mountaineers to conquer mountains. We also feel proud in stating that many of the clients whose expedition was conducted by us were able to climb mountains above 8000 meters on their first attempt.

Today, Seven Summit Treks has developed a formidable reputation and has been gaining a lot of competition from international trekking and expedition firms. It is all but natural that we are being dragged in the mud while being guilty of nothing. But this has led to some negative publicity for the company and some raised eyebrows. However, we don’t want to go on pointing fingers at certain parties who have tried to muddle the reputation of our company. Understandably, some parties aren’t really happy as we continue ascending toward the pinnacle of success. We sincerely request you not to pay heed to any of such rumors and evaluate us only after gaining firsthand experience of our services. No matter what people blame us for, we are prepared and committed, as ever to fulfilling the needs of our widespread clientele. Both of us directors of Seven Summit Treks have had years of experience in mountaineering as we both have conquered all the 14 highest peaks in the world. This organization is run by experienced mountaineers ever since the time of inception and is valid proof of the technical excellence of our organization. Presently, we not just possess the ability to provide our clients with what they desire but also to facilitate competing firms and agencies during dire times. We are frequently known to assist other treks and expedition agencies during times of distress, like providing helicopters for several rescue missions. We declare that we will continue to remain the number one organizer of expeditions and trekking in Nepal.
