3 Sisters adventure trekking was established in 1994 due to repeated requests from our traveling friends to guide them through the mountains. Since then we have welcomed many guests from across the globe. We'd be happy to organize your trek, welcome you at our guest house and provide all services to make your trip most memorable. Female travelers enjoy the opportunity to trek and interact with their female guides and assistants. We specialize in providing female guides and assistants for female trekkers and also cater for couples, families and provide male staff for male trekkers. Empowering Women of Nepal Trekking work in partnership. We combine practical training programs with gainful employment opportunities. Our goal is to encourage our fellow Nepali sisters to become self-supportive, independent and decisive women.
