Custom, low-cost adventures in Nepal, India and Bhutan

Friends in High Places is different from other trekking agencies. Instead of selling fixed tours or grouping you with strangers, we work with you to create the Himalayan adventure of your dreams - and your budget.

Send along your questions too. Talking together by email or Skype allows us to build tours and treks based on what excites you.

Do you know what country or countries you want to visit?
If not, read short summaries About the Countries. The summaries each link to more description and the various adventures in each country.  Combine countries as you like; flights are short and convenient.

What will be your main activity?
If you aren't sure, look at the country pages for Nepal, BhutanIndia and Tibet. We can arrange almost anything, so if you don't see an activity listed, please ask.

How much time can you spend, and what time of year?
Short visits to the Himalayas are wonderful, but most visitors spend two weeks or more.  We help you make the most of your time with a personal itinerary.  Prime seasons in Nepal and Bhutan are fall and spring.  Winter visits to both are great if you do not intend to trek to high altitude (it's very cold up high in winter).  Tibet high season is April through October; the remaining months are very cold.  The best time for sightseeing in India is October through April. See more about the area's Geography and Climate.

What other activities?
There is so much here: think about adding an extra activity like staying in a Nepali village, visiting a buddhist monastery, whitewater Rafting, elephant-back Safaris, a visit to Lhasa or the Taj Mahal, Hang Gliding and Ultralight FlightsMountain Biking, Bungy Jump, Zip Lining, and more.

Are you traveling solo or with others?
Both are great!  Solo travelers and small parties are welcome.  Some activities, like rafting, need more than one person, so we'll match you up.  In Tibet "independent" travel is not allowed, so you will need to join a small group. (Or better yet, assemble a group of friends!) In Bhutan smaller parties pay a surcharge but are welcome.  

We offer all the options.  A party of four or more people is free from any constraints in all countries.
