Who/What is Keep Walking Nepal?

Keep Walking Nepal is a family run trekking company, with Ang Tshering Sherpa the principal owner in partnership with his brother Ang Ngima Sherpa. We have over 24 years’ experience trekking in Nepal and Tibet. We organise and run things ourselves, with our staff either based in Kathmandu or in their home village in the mountains. We are an internet-based business without massive overheads. We are actively keeping our operation small so that virtually all your money goes directly to our on-ground trek costs and staff. We make enough money to live on but are not driven by big profits, AND we don’t cut corners to jeopardise your safety or enjoyment. You will have a safe and fantastic trip with us experiencing first-hand our hospitality and customs.
