Are you the kind of person who cannot bear to sit on a beach for two weeks?
Do you crave adventure, or have a desire to learn about rich culture and heritage?
Then you have come to the right place! We are a fully specialized, experienced and highly-regarded tour operator offering outstanding trekking itineraries and adventure and cultural trips in Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet.
Trek the infamous path to Everest Base Camp, explore the wonders of the Annapurna Range, venture into restricted and remote Himalayan areas (only visited by a few tourists each year!), or conquer a Himalayan Peak. Ride some of the best and most exciting rapids in the world, spotting one-horned rhinos and its fellow jungle companions, or choose to fully immerse yourself in the culture and history of ancient lands and experience the most breathtaking scenery on the planet with Mosaic Adventure.
Nepal truly is the adventure seekers paradise, with its rugged Himalayan trekking routes, raging white water rapids and high-suspended bridges, perfect for leaping into a lush ravine on the end of a bungee cord. We have trips that cater for everyone! Whether you consider yourself a bit of an athlete and fancy a long trek into the mountains, taking on steep ascents and even summiting a peak, or, if you would rather have a leisurely walk for just a few days to take in the mountain scenery, we can do that too. From pilgrimage tours and city sightseeing, experiencing the rich culture and time-honored traditions to camping in the wilderness and reaching some of the highest points on the earth, Mosaic Adventure really does do it all.
Bhutan and Tibet are deeply mysterious lands steeped in ancient history. It is our pleasure to do all of the legwork to arrange visas to visit these beautiful countries so you can just sit back, relax and soak up the culture and magnificent scenery that is around you.
We started our working lives as porters and guides, leading hundreds of tourists into the Himalayas, so as you can imagine, we know the mountains like the back of our hands and we understand exactly what it takes to make a trip of a lifetime.
Please get in touch with us, give us a call or shoot us an email to begin arranging your dream vacation. Whatever your budget or amount of time you have, we can set you up with a group itinerary or a tailor made trip to one or all of these amazing countries.

Mosaic Adventure is an eco-friendly tour operator with an objective to improve, protect and preserve the environment of the Himalayan Mountains. We are members of The International Ecotourism Society, Kathmandu Environmental Education Program (KEEP), Youth Effort for Society (YES) and Youth Campaign for Development (YCD), which are environmental organizations that promote responsible tourism. We are also recommended by responsibletravel.com.
We conduct all our trips with a vigilant eye to avoid any disturbance to the local ecology or way of life. We are committed to an active participation in the Kathmandu Environmental Education Project and other national and local Environmental Initiatives. We continuously strive to make sure traveling with us has the minimum impact on the local environment. We always tell our customers to take a water bottle and purification tablets and make use of natural water resources, this is instead of buying bottles of water that can litter and pollute the mountain environment.
Mosaic Adventure believes that it is possible to operate commercially in the Eco-Tourism Sector of the industry and also to preserve the natural and cultural heritage of an area through promotion of sustainable tourism. In our work, we actively promote and implement this philosophy whenever an opportunity presents itself. We run a non-government organization (CYS) that is committed to providing much-needed health and education facilities to remote areas of Nepal.
We emphasize making extensive use of the available local products and enhance maximum economic benefits to the local communities. In addition to this, we support rural development projects by contributing 10% of our profit generated each trading year, thereby, have directly uplifted the living standard of the local residents and contributed to the national economy of Nepal. On camping trips in remote regions, we buy food from the local villagers and only use locally owned tea houses and hotels.
Since our establishment, our company has always been striving to help develop remote areas of Nepal. We strive to maintain the trend by making a continuous effort in discovering interesting new destinations within the country. Furthermore, we have initiated cleaning campaigns in the nearby villages that involve a lot of local participation. The idea is to raise hygiene and environmental awareness in the villages. Such campaigns also educate the villagers to keep their villages and the surroundings neat and clean.
As a responsible tour company with strong commitments to sustainability, we take strong action to ensure that the welfare of animals is safeguarded. For example: Mosaic Adventure do not run any Elephant Back Safari tour as they are mistreated.
We follow trekking Ethics: the 5 Guidelines outlined by IPPG (International Porter Protection Group)
- Clothing appropriate to season and altitude must be provided to porters for protection from cold, rain and snow. This may mean windproof jacket and trousers, fleece jacket, long johns, suitable footwear (boots in snow), socks, hat, gloves and sunglasses.
- Above the tree line porters should have a dedicated shelter, either a room in a lodge or a tent (the trekkers’ mess tent is no good as it is not available until late evening), a sleeping mat and a decent blanket or sleeping bag. They should be provided with food and warm drinks, or cooking equipment and fuel.
- Porters should be provided with life insurance and the same standard of medical care as you would expect for yourself.
- Porters should not be paid off because of illness/injury without the leader or the trekkers assessing their condition carefully. The person in charge of the porters (sirdar) must let their trek leader or the trekkers know if a sick porter is about to be paid off. Failure to do this previously has resulted in many deaths. Sick/injured porters should never be sent down alone, but with someone who speaks their language and understands their problem, along with a letter describing their complaint. Sufficient funds should be provided to cover the cost of rescue and treatment.
- No porter should be asked to carry a load that is too heavy for their physical abilities (maximum: 20 kg on Kilimanjaro, 25 kg in Peru and Pakistan, 30 kg in Nepal). Mosaic Adventures weight limit for a porter is maximum 20 kilograms. Weight limits may need to be adjusted for altitude, trail and weather conditions; experience is needed to make this decision. Child porters should not be employed.
