A warm Nepali welcome!


As Patron, I am delighted that the Himalayan Trust has played a crucial role in the development of the Everest region. Since Sir Edmund Hillary founded the Himalayan Trust in the 1960, it has touched so many lives and given choices and options to many remote mountain communities in their changing world.
