Mr. Nigel Gifford.
The legal conflict between Explore Himalaya and Mr. Nigel Gifford, resident of UK and former Director of ‘High & Wild’ has finally come to an end after conclusive hearing at Kathmandu District court on the 4th of November, 2012. Party seeking justice and a possible beneficiary Mr. Suman Pandey; President of Explore Himalaya was closely observing that the battle was totally unproductive, time consuming and stressful to everyone involved. Hence Mr. Pandey confirmed that Company decided to resolve the dispute with Mr. Gifford and accordingly, requests were made to the district court.
After the successful operation of Everest Skydive in 2008, the situation went worst, the closure of UK organizer Company, High & Wild ultimately led to a dispute between Mr. Gifford, Director of the Company and Explore Himalaya which ultimately reached the court. Tourism entrepreneurs and allies wished for the dispute to be resolved as it was a real unfortunate. The mediating attempts of several well wishers have finally brought the two good old friends together to the sustainable reconcilement. Mr. Pandey stated that Explore Himalaya is no longer at the state of dispute with Mr. Gifford and hence he wished everyone for the peaceful and harmonious lives.
The decision made by the court on above date was recently received which states, “The dealing between two parties is purely business matter and therefore, criminal charges against Mr. Gifford do not attract”. This decision of the Kathmandu district Court has acquitted Mr. Nigel Gifford from Criminal Charges filed by the District Police Office two years ago.
Mr. Nigel Gifford was in Kathmandu while the hearing took place and he was overwhelmed to be relieved from charges against him in the Nepalese Court. Being a long time friend of Nepal, he expressed happiness for getting his freedom back to enter Nepal after the conclusion of this legal issue.
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.
