Project Himalaya is Jamie McGuinness and other partners and is an internet-based business. We organize and run every aspect of our trips ourselves, working in partnership with respected local companies.
Our business model is lean; we are officeless, only a laptop each. The trip leader is responsible for the trip as a whole, including the web pages, email, organizing and leading. This means virtually all of your money goes directly on the ground operation, not a head office. Jamie handles the marketing and website.
Our team members/clients are a diverse bunch of people - we run diverse trips, but virtually all are professionals with a degree. Most people are in their 30's to 50's, occasionally older but very fit, and from a surprising range of countries, in 2013 from USA, UK, Switzerland, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Canada, Singapore, Chile, Sweden, Middle-East expats and more. Many have not trekked/climbed with a group/team previously.
We enjoy being social in the evenings; light banter, intellectual discussions, we enjoy it all. In 2014 around 100 trekkers-climbers joined us, around 40% of them previous clients - friends - came again, see Previous treks.
The majority of our clients book as a single/alone on a trek although couples are welcome, of course.
Please give us at least a few details to understand your needs better:
+ Which treks/climbs appeal
+ Your hiking or trekking experience
+ contact details (Skype, Hangouts, Messenger)+ time zone
We are happy to spend time sorting out which trek is best for you then answering questions important to you.
Preferably inquire and plan 4-10 months in advance to get the best deal on your international flights.
When you are happy with the arrangements then:
> book your flights
> get travel insurance
> sign the Acknowledgement of Risk, Waiver and Release
> fill in the Contract and Booking form
> then pay a deposit (US$750; more for a few treks)
Email is the best way. Finally - our email address!

Bring a smile, a sense of adventure and a curiosity to learn about other cultures and ways of life.
We look forward to meeting you!
