Sherpa Journeys, LLC. is a Colorado-based trekking company specializing in Nepal’s Everest Region. We support sustaining the Sherpa and other local cultures as well as tourism which is the lifeblood of Nepal. We guide with professionalism and responsibility and respect to the environment, the porters and local villagers. Our guides in Nepal have over 30 years of experience guiding in their homeland and are wonderful people to travel with since they love to show westerners the peaks and rivers and their unique way of life. There is something special about being surrounded by the majesty of the highest mountains in the world and being a part of their beautiful culture--even if only for a brief stay. This journey is truly a place to find your own, true spirit. We will unveil our fall trekking and retreat program in Nepal as well.
