Who are we?

We are the British-Nepali co-founders of a small friendly trekking company and offer our personal rich and extensive experience and understanding of the Himalayan way of life and the environment to our friends and clients.

What we offer is unique, as we have a foot in both Western and Nepali cultures and with an immense wealth of mountain based skills, connections and experience. We use this strong foundation to create imaginative Himalayan experiences for people who appreciate doing things a little differently, secure in the knowledge that there is a well structured and caring family based support team behind them. We offer the discerning trekker and mountain traveller something a little different.

We believe in working in partnership with the people who help deliver our unique treks and Himalayan travel experiences to our friends and clients.

We believe in complete transparency in the way we work and provide a 'fair deal' for all who work with us. As a result of working extensively in the social, educational, environmental and cultural sector we believe that the business model is the most sustainable form of aiding rural development.

Despite over 40 years of working in the mountains Ian is still inspired, finds peace and tranquility, motivation and inspiration from working in this environment with mountain people. He and Sarita now wish to share their enthusiasm with like-minded people and wish to open the Nepali culture to people curious about the Himalayan way of life whilst leaving a positive impact on the remote communities with which Off the Wall Trekking comes into contact.

Ian and Sarita believe that mountain people are connected by a similar approach to, and philosophy of life. They feel part of that mountain society and want to introduce others to this positive and motivating experience. Ian has lived and worked in the Himalayan communities for many years and of course Sarita comes from a Himalayan hill district and they believe the best possible way to offer support is by helping local people to help themselves. Creating work opportunities with a fair wage, Off the Wall Trekking is able to offer wider support to the extended family.

Vision

We shall continue to offer dedicated Himalayan off-the-wall treks and adventure solutions for clients from all over the world whilst enjoying our work with our local communities. Off the Wall Trekking will provide not only the tried and tested Himalayan experiences, but, will work with the discerning trekker to create a unique experience of cultural, environmental and Himalayan travel.
