We offer 59 treks in Nepal, Tibet, India and Bhutan, visiting Base Camps, mountainous regions, remote jungles and places of cultural interest.
In Europe we place clients with the right guide(s) in a varied choice of experiences for all levels of fitness, including: mountaineering, rock & ice climbs, avalanche courses, educational snowshoeing outings, wildlife tracking /observation walks, glacier treks/training, family outings, outdoor safety presentations for schools and businesses, and even horse riding holidays in the mountains of Spain. We serve groups with unique programmes, informative presentations and off-site meetings designed to meet specific needs, and welcome inquiries about instruction, methodology, custom outings and scheduling.
Our pages here offer an overview of our programmes, but activities are always flexible and tailored to our clients’ needs. Safety, environmental sustainability, sensitivity to Nature, an intelligent approach, technical proficiency, personal responsibility and fun are our priorities. Very importantly, we are dedicated to sharing and incorporating our own take on Shinrin-Yoku (Nature Therapy) into all activities to benefit every participant and the natural environment we enjoy. Please ask us about why this is important.

Our Most Important Commitment:
Decades of outdoor adventure have focused our appreciation and dedication on Sherpa children in need. As a result we founded the Education for Orphans of Nepal charity to support the education of as many Nepalese orphans as possible. Starting with a single child in 2001, the EON Charity currently supports the living and education of +43 Sherpa children. It is our goal to raise awareness of the nearly one million orphan children in Nepal, and how an education can expand their possibilities for a bright future. Please read about EON and these deserving children at: www.eoncharitynepal.org. We hope all of our clients will recognize this important opportunity and join the family of EON Patrons and Supporters to assure these children have access to a quality education.
So come enjoy an adventure, benefit a worthy cause, learn a great deal, and have fun safely. Whether you wish to learn an outdoor activity from scratch, summit a particular peak, stand on the Top of the World, enjoy a leisurely trek, or get up close and personal with a Grade 5 ice route that has been keeping you awake, we can make it happen.
