From trekking, peak climbing and mountaineering to rafting, wildlife safari, cultural tours and other activities, Ace the Himalaya has an option for all kinds of outdoor lovers. We are proud to showcase the Himalayas to the world and take your journey beyond the ordinary!
Ace the Himalaya was founded by Prem K Khatry in 2006, after working for many years as a freelance tour/trekking leader. Prem founded Ace to be a 100% locally-owned inbound ground operator in Nepal, Bhutan, Tibet and India. Since 2006, Ace the Himalaya has been proudly showcasing the scenic beauty of the glorious Himalayas to the world. As a Nepalese-owned company, Ace offers wholesale tour operators the twin benefits of affordable ground services and superior quality itineraries and travel planning services. Today, the company employs a staff of 110 and has proudly served thousands of trekking groups in Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan and India.
What We Do
Ace specializes in hiking, trekking, mountaineering, rafting, wildlife safaris, mountain biking, cultural tours, and special itineraries (honeymoon, photography, festivals, voluntourism and student). Ace offers both pre-planned itineraries and custom travel planning services. Our average group size has eight clients and two guides. Ace can also accommodate large groups, having worked with student groups of about 250 travelers.
We have packages for ‘Voluntourism’, which stands for volunteering (teaching, rebuilding construction etc.) while traveling. Also, we have just started a special marriage package in traditional Nepalese custom for the couples on a holiday in Nepal.
How We Are Different
The Ace team has spent years finding quaint out-of-the-way places to stay that complement in more familiar destinations within Nepal, Bhutan, Tibet and India. The company prides itself on its extensive knowledge and network; every team member has been carefully selected for their specialized skills and talents along with their dedication to customer delight. While traveling with us, you will feel a sense of comfort as you become part of our family.
Our managing director Mr. Prem K Khatry has worked as guide in the mountain for decade and has personally vetted 80% of our trips in the Himalayas. Our Bhutan, Tibet and India trip has been vetted by the guides and leaders even before we started selling those trips.
What We Stand For
Ace the Himalaya stands for many things. First off, we at Ace the Himalaya offer various kinds of trekking and tour packages at an affordable cost. We ensure that with us, every traveler will enjoy their trips to the fullest and feel very happy and safe as well.
Ace the Himalaya implements the policy of environmental conservation on every service and tour. Our main direction is to provide first class adventure and holiday experience in the Himalayas in a sustainable and responsible manner. We operate as such that the journeys ensure benefits to the local people as much as possible and any potential negative impacts at the destinations are minimized.
Apart from this, we also have policies for our porters and trekking guides. We facilitate them with various training and other facilities for bringing out the best in them and leave no stone unturned on whatever we offer. Also, all of our guides and porters are insured.
Our mission is to fulfil the needs of clients and promote sustainable tourism through preservation of the natural environment, local cultures, traditions and heritages of Nepal by organizing tours in socially responsible, eco-friendly, and ethical manner.
Beside tourism, Ace has a special give back, where we have been helping a non-profit organization called “Sambhav Nepal”. We have helped build schools, toilets, libraries and community drinking water facilities for areas in the Gorkha district hit by earthquakes. After the major earthquake on 25th April 2015, Ace the Himalaya and Rotary International has taken an initiative to help victims by donating food, aluminum roof sheets and blankets as a part of our Community service programs.
Up to 10% of Ace’s annual revenue goes directly towards Sambhav’s projects, including maintenance of school buildings, building toilets, searching sponsors for education of needy children. For more information, visit www.sambhavnepal.org
