Nepal Trekking Expedition 2023 – The Adventure of a Lifetime

Ocean Vertical’s Nepal trekking expedition 2023 is an incredible opportunity to experience Nepalese culture, to be immersed in the vastness of the Himalayas and to connect with locals and team mates alike.  

Over 14 days together we will experience the historical sights of Nepal’s capital, Kathmandu, before taking a spectacular flight over the Himalayas to the lakeside town of Pokhara, where we will begin our 8 day trek through the Mardi Himal. 

What Makes Ocean Vertical’s Nepal Trekking Expedition Special?

  • Connection – Our expedition will be co-led by 3 Sisters Trekking company who are pioneers in training and employing female trekking guides across the Himalayas. 
  • Unique – Your expedition will be led by highly experienced Ocean Vertical leaders with extensive experience in Nepal.
  • Culture – You will experience the historical sights of Nepal’s capital, the culture of remote Gurung Villages as well as learning from your trekking guides and assistants on their unique lives as some of Nepal’s only female trekking guides.
  • Logistics – Ocean Vertical will provide extensive pre-departure support and advice. Once in the country, all major expenses are included so you will spend very little money in Nepal.

Nepal Trekking Expedition – Three Sisters Trekking Company

Ocean Vertical’s Nepal trekking expedition 2023 will be co-led by our friends at 3 Sisters Adventure Trekking, based out of Pokhara Nepal. 3 Sisters Adventure Trekking are pioneers in training and employing female guides for treks across the Himalayas.

Since 1994, the three sisters, Lucky, Dicky and Nicky Chhetri have worked to empower women in Nepal through their company 3 Sister Adventure Trekking, an organisation for women, by women.

In Nepalese society, women generally receive less education than men and are expected to follow a traditional lifestyle. In the early 90’s no one would have dreamed of Nepalese women guiding trekking expeditions in Nepal. The three sisters were pioneers in their field and through their guide training programme have now empowered over 2,000 women from all over Nepal. Many have become trekking guides and others have gained the confidence to find employment elsewhere..

“Our goal is to encourage our fellow Nepali sisters to become self-supportive, independent, decision-making women.”

We are proud to work with this inspiring organisation and can’t wait for you to meet our trekking guides to hear their inspiring stories first hand.
