Great Mountain Holidays is run by Ganesh Gurung and his team. They come from Lapu, a small Gurung village located below Manaslu at an altitude of 1,800m. Having grown up in these remote and isolated areas, they will help discover unbeaten tracks/off the beaten path, wonders of the daily lives of the villagers according to the seasons and unique ancestral traditions which are guaranteed to provide a pleasant experience. With over twenty five years of experience in guiding tourists throughout Nepal, they have connected people from different corners of the world who are so different from each other by their way of life, their cultures and traditions, but who equally have the same warmth at heart to welcome and offer the best of themselves to each other. Great Mountain Holidays invites you to discover the great Himalayas that inspire travelers by guiding them towards finding themselves.
