Mr. Amar prays with Shane and Maryann during the wedding at Boudhanath
Fifteen years of selfless intimacy reflects deep affectionate, dedicated care for each other’s preferences, motivating appreciation, high level of wisdom and the most importantly the unbreakable bonding of two souls into one. Explore Himalaya recently had an opportunity to unite two beautiful souls into one. Ms. Maryann Higginson & Mr. Shane Kreutzer from Australia had a wonderful marriage in Nepal, as per Buddhist culture.
Maryann and Shane had known each other for the last fifteen years. They always had plans to make their marriage a special one. As the couple booked a trek with us, they asked if we could execute the Marriage for them as per Buddhist culture, we said “Absolutely Yes”. As there is always a huge gap between what we claim and what we execute, we worked out in every area where we can minimize the gap. We practice personal approach while handling every guest here in Explore Himalaya. We also knew Maryann and Shane needed additional care. We wanted to make the most special day of their lives, the most beautiful day as well.
Shane awaits for Maryann- the love of his life
On 20 November 2014, Maryann and Shane got married at Boudhanath. Explore Himalayans witnessed the biggest day of their lives. We helped them throughout their marriage in Nepal, culturally, socially, religiously and legally. After the marriage the newly wedded couple had few beautiful sentences for Explore Himalaya.
Here it goes.
We have far too many to say. Our trek was amazing everyday with the best guide and porter you could ask for. We were spoilt. Our time in Chitwan and Pokhara was also wonderful. Elephant ride is something to remember forever.
Our wedding day and the preparations made by the fabulous staffs of Explore Himalaya will forever be in our memory. They made our special day amazing. Amar is now our friend and we cannot thank him enough for his efforts.
The services of Explore Himalaya were amazing. The meeting and handling was excellent. Guides during trek and tour were amazing and we would highly recommend them to our friends and family. Transportation was good, reliable and always on time. We felt secured knowing that we had transportation awaiting us when required. And the office staffs had friendly faces, smiles and amazingly helping attitude on our wedding day above and beyond.
We highly recommend Explore Himalaya if you want to have a well organized holiday. We tailored our trip with the fantastic assistance of the staff and nothing was too hard for them. To throw in our wedding in Buddhist culture, which created a lot of extra work didn’t seem to be a problem even though we know how hard it was to prepare. We had a trip of lifetime.
We will never be able to thank you enough for everything. Keep that personalized touch to your great packages. We can’t wait to visit everyone when we return someday. Thank you so much Explore Himalaya.

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.
Helicopter flight to Everest basecamp Mar 2023 Organized for us a life time experience by helicopter to the base camp. Very well organized and all what has been promised was delivered. Would highly recommend this service.
