Highly recommend Himalayan Joy.


Could not have been more happy about my trip in Nepal organized by Himalayan Joy and would highly recommend them for any treks in Nepal. Extremely professional, very accommodating and above all putting your safety first. In the 14 days trekking in the gokyo valley, EBC and Island Peak, not once we had an issue. Our guide was very knowledge and always happy to share and answer our questions. He and his team were always in a high spirit and good mood which made the trip even more pleasant. We finish our trek with the Island Peak ascent and he had hired some highly qualified peak guide who had climbed several times Everest. We felt in very good hands as they put out security (and comfort) first.  It was a seamless organization in places where so many factors could alter your trip. Highly recommend using Himalayan Joy.

Perfect climbing expedition


We hired Himalayan Joy for our Island Peak (6189m high) climb and our trek around Everest. I have done many trips but this one stands above others in three ways. The organization was flawless, safety was always paramount, and the expertise of all the people we came in contact with was evident.  From our first day in Nepal, we were taken in charge by the Himalayan Joy team and nothing went wrong. The drivers were where they were supposed to be for our city tours, the lodges were ready when we got there, the quality of all accommodations and meals were as expected.  Several times during our trip, we got overzealous and tried to pack in more than we should. Our guides were very accommodating unless they thought it was not safe in which case they did not let us go ahead. This is very important on a trip like the one we did because we don't know the region like they do.  The staff was truly extremely experienced. This was most evident on our island peak climb. Our two climbing guides have a combined 12 Everest summits under their belts. They adjusted the speed of the climb to our capabilities and gave us plenty of time to adjust and take pictures. This made for an unforgettable experience.  Himalayan Joy was founded by a former porter. He rose through the ranks to become an assistant guide, a guide, and now a company owner. This made our trip more rewarding because we supported a local business that in turn respects the staff it employes because the owner has been there.  All in all. Thank you Himalayan Joy for an amazing trek.

Trip Note


Sometimes the flight may be cancelled due to the unpredictable weather in Luka so Himalayan Joy Adventure has created itinerary for this trek with one day free/extra day in the end of the trek. In case your flight has been cancelled more than two days, we will charter a helicopter to and from Luka to ensure your flight on scheduled towards homeland or further destination. This extra service cost will be minimum $500 to maximum $4000 USD dollars which you can claim from your insurance.


Every day the world is facing a big issue of environmental pollution and in Nepal as well. Our field staffs are quite conscious about environmental pollution at any time and we encourage to all. We would suggest to our guest to use boiled water or water purification pills than buying a bottle of water, it helps to avoid plastic bottles which can takes long time to disappear. During the trek, if possible you can order same items food in a group which minimizes the fuel used and to make campfire is almost forbidden. We would encourage being a responsible traveler so, just leaving foot-print on the trail and bring out all non-biodegradable which you had.
