Here at Ace the Himalaya, we firmly believe that the way to get the most out of your staff is to treat them well; a happy staff is a hard-working staff. And this belief manifests itself in every way we deal with our staff.
We employ only local leaders and staff to help sustain the local communities we work with. We provide training for all our staff and all our trek leaders are trained in the following as a minimum:
- Intensive Wilderness First Aid
- Trekking Guide Training
- Eco Trekking Workshop & Adventure Meet
- English and other related Languages
- Conservation & Biodiversity
- Rock & Ice Climbing & Mountaineering (for expedition/climbing leaders)
We can guarantee your trip will be led by the best, most professional and experienced guides. All of our guides fluent English-speakers and if you like we also have guides fluent in other languages (Japanese, French, Spanish, German and Italian). All our guides are carefully selected for their experience, leadership skills and personal ability. We have learnt that effective leadership is a vital for a trip to be safe, enjoyable and successful.
In fact, not only are all our guides experienced working in these regions, but most of them actually grew up in these mountainous regions of Nepal. Its home for them, it's in their blood. They're not only 'familiar' with local communities and culture; they're a part of them and they practice it. They truly love their home and relish getting the opportunity to show travelers.
