On the first week of March (10th to 13th, March, 2011), Explore Himalaya organized a Team Building Programme (3 days & 4 nights) for a corporate group from the Middle – East, whose main office is based in the UK. Altogether there were 14 members of seven different nationalities. Explore Himalaya had signed up the group for Team Building activities at Gokarna Forest Resort at Sankhu and at The Last Resort in Kodari. Popular with corporate groups, these activities help team members bond, build trust, improve communication, instill leadership qualities and learn how to work in coordination.
After arriving in Kathmandu the group was driven to Gokarna Forest Resort. Fully rested, after lunch they were divided into four different groups and the Team Building session commenced. Each group was given a different task to complete within a stipulated time. There was fun and laughter all around, as each group tried its best to complete the task. A BBQ dinner with a Nepali cultural program served as a fitting finale for the team’s first day.
Early next morning, the group was escorted for a guided sightseeing tour to Bhaktapur- a medieval Malla kingdom. After an insightful tour they were driven to Dhulikhel for lunch. Enjoying the Himalayan panorama from a hill-side resort the group was served a sumptuous lunch. The next stop for them was the Last resort. Driving along the Nepal- Tibet border, the group reached The Last Resort, located in Kodari the Nepalese border town. After some more group activities it was time for dinner. A live band played while dinner was served.This made the experience doubly pleasurable.
The next morning the team hiked up to the woods surrounding the resort and later cooled down by rafting at the Bhote Koshi river. After spending an enjoyable day, the group checked out of the resort and headed to Dhulikhel. Post lunch they were taken for a short hike to Chandaswori. The group’s trip ended as they were driven back to the hotel for final pack-up and departure.
Comments by the group:
"Our trip in Nepal with Explore Himalaya was really amazing. It was a great experience for all of us and we will never forget it. In our case: a group of 14 people, 7 nationalities, 3 different religions, team building is more than a fun trip with the colleagues. It is really important, strategic and needed: to understand each other and manage to work together efficiently on a daily basis in the office, whatever our differences.
Your program helped us to reach this goal, and also gave us the chance to better know the new joiners, to discover some people’s personality, to improve the communication and the trust within the team and to understand how important the team work is.Thank you again for everything!!"
"Definitely don’t regret my choice to have selected your company for our team building trip 2011 and will recommend it! Good luck to all the staff for the future: to our guides, driver, cameraman, Prabhakar, Maya, and everyone we had the chance to meet during our trip!"
-Audrey, Marketing & Events Manager in the Middle-East

Apr 2023 I had an incredible experience trekking to Everest Base Camp with Explore Himalaya. Our guides were absolutely amazing. They provided us with exceptional support and guidance throughout the journey. The porters deserve special recognition too for their hard work and dedication. The entire journey was filled with breathtaking views and unforgettable experiences. From the start until the conclusion , every moment was filled with awe and wonder. I highly recommend Explore Himalaya for anyone seeking an unforgettable trekking experience in the Himalayas. Thank you to all the the staff, for making our journey truly exceptional!
13 Day Manaslu Circuit Trek Nov 2018 We have just returned to Kathmandu after a wonderful trek around the Manaslu circuit, starting in Soti Khola and finishing in Jaget. The trek and transport out and back to Kathmandu were very well organized. Our guide, Bharet Rana was excellent, arranging our tea-house accomodation and meals each day, without hitch. He was always good humoured and provided an interesting commentary on sights along the way.
Our Everest Base Camp trek was a wonderful and memorable one. Everything was very well organised. Thank you Explore Himalaya and the staffs for such an excellent service. We were taken care of from the moment we landed in Ktm till the day we left. The Guides and the Porters team of Explore Himalaya are very friendly and helpful. They took care of every little things during our trek. Some walked faster, some slowly and few could not but No one was left behind. They walk with your pace and motivates you until you get up. Anuj Pandey, MD of Explore Himalaya was available 24 hours a day when anybody was in need, he even flew to Namche to check if everything was going well and if everybody was doing good. The Guides Bibek Pandey, Bhuwan Tamang and Ram Rajbhandari along with their 5 Porters were the main pillars who made our mission accomplished. I'd highly recommend anybody who wants to travel to Nepal to contact Explore Himalaya and get themselves spoilt and entertained with their excellent service.
