Who we are:
In the early 1970s, when Chheduk Man was young, he descended to Kathmandu, the capital city from the Middle Eastern part of the Himalayas of Nepal in search of a better job opportunity. He initially found work as kitchen staff for a camping and trekking group, which was the start of his journey towards owning one of the country’s best trekking companies.
Chheduk Man served as kitchen staff for a couple of years. Then he upgraded his skills and worked as a chef. He prepared delicious and nutritious meals for large groups of people during camping and trekking. Even back in the 70s, camping and trekking were very popular. This is where he realized that the scope of camping and trekking was vast in Nepal. Being someone who grew in the lap of the Himalayas, Chheduk Man decided to steer his life towards something that served his homeland. He saw an opportunity in being a camping and trekking guide for foreigners. However, he knew he needed further skills to pursue his newfound dream.
Before this, Chheduk Man had never studied or learned a foreign language. But in 1975, he enrolled in various study centers and institutions to learn the English language. He continued his language study well into the 80s. On the foundation of his new language skills, he worked as an English-speaking guide for large commercial trekking groups. After a few years, he applied for his trekking guide license. In 1984, after taking a four-week-long guide training course from Hotel Management and Training Center in Nepal, he received his official trekking guide license.
According to Chheduk Man, the time between the 1970s and 1990s was a golden era for a trekking adventure in Nepal. During this time, he worked as a Sirdar (senior team manager and climber) for many trekking groups. He successfully led climbing expeditions to majestic peaks such as Mt. Kanchenjunga (8586m), Mt. Makalu (8463m), and Mt. Dhaulagiri I (8167m).
Until 1998, Chheduk Man worked for various esteemed commercial trekking companies. In 1998, he founded his own recommendation group and started working only in his camping and trekking group. He initiated his recommendation group as a family business and employed his sons: Sanjay, Norsang, and Samden as porters for his clients. All three of Chheduk Man’s sons are following in the footsteps and have already become officially licensed guides in Nepal. In 2010, Chheduk Man registered his trekking company, High Camp Trekking in the Government Offices of Nepal as a family trekking business running in the Himalayas of Nepal. Today, Chheduk Man with his sons Sanjay, Norsang, and Samden works together at High Camp Trekking, whose main office is based in Kathmandu, Nepal. High Camp Trekking has quickly gained a reputation for being a great trekking company that caters to the camping and trekking needs of Nepalese and foreigners alike.
What we do in the Himalayas on Nepal:
We run teahouse treks in popular destinations such as Annapurna, Everest, Langtang, Manaslu, Mustang, and Kanchenjunga. We choose some of the best teahouses for each trek we run. We do room pre-book at the teahouse for every busy season.
Camping trek is something like a forgotten activity in Nepal now day even though it was very popular in the 1970s to 90s. We run camping trek in trekking destinations such as Dhaulagiri, Dolpo, Limi valley, Rowaling, and where the teahouse is not established yet.
We also conduct snowy peak climbing based on camping organized service. Our cook (chef) prepares daily fresh meals with delicious varieties of Nepali, Western, Indian, and Tibetan for camping groups.
