We are Hari Upadhyay and the team- the owners of Happy Hari Trek & Expeditions Pvt. Ltd. We, all have been working for internationally renowned travel & trekking companies in Nepal for over 20 years and finally decided in 2015 to start our own travel & adventure business.
We are Nepali and the Himalayas is our home. We love the mountains, we love adventure and we love our culture. And when you join our tours we would like you to collect the best memories in life of one of the most beautiful countries – we want to take you on a true Nepal experience.
As a Nepal based travel company, our entire administration expenses are at local currency which allows us to keep our overhead cost to a minimum. We can thus offer the same facilities as those provided by a Western company at a fraction of the price.
If we are not running the tours ourselves we have other well trained guides who are all Nepali and registered and licensed by the Nepal Tourism Board (NTB). Our team are all highly skilled professionals who have been selected based on their technical proficiency, proven safety records, careful judgment, patient and supportive teaching styles and great personalities. At a minimum, all of our guides hold current Wilderness First Responder certification and are proficient in technical rescue and evacuation skills. All our guides bring a wealth of natural history, cultural anthropology and linguistic knowledge for their group’s enlightenment.
Happy Hari Trek &Expeditions Pvt. Ltd is fully registered and licensed within Nepal and an affiliate of the Nepal Tourism Board. Apart from that we are also affiliated with several prestigious regulating bodies such as NMA (Nepal Mountaineering Association), TAAN (Trekking Agency Association of Nepal), and KEEP (Kathmandu Educational Environment Project).
Our company values are part of all our tours and our personal passion. We run our tours for small groups (maximum 12 persons) and individual travelers and guarantee you the following:
