" This trip opened my eyes to so much. It was one of a kind. I felt safe and was able to see a beautiful, wonderful India that I was very sad to leave. Thank you so much. I will never forget this trip. "

Your own Himalayan Adventure

Expedition Leaders has helped thousands of Travellers from as far afield as France, Australia, NZ and the USA experience the trip of a lifetime. Each of our expeditions is tailor made. We believe our local knowledge, experienced and well-trained guides sets up apart from others in Indian & The Himalayas.

Independent Traveller groups are often smaller - and this allows us to develop a totally unique itinerary for you. So, whether you’d like your expedition to focus on day walks; high altitude trekking over Himalayan passes; getting involved in a Community Project, visiting Cultural highlights, or a combination of all of these, we can help.


From Gap Years to Walking Groups…

Our experience spans from Gap Year travellers wanting to get a flavour of the culture of the subcontinent, to experienced mountain walkers keen to test themselves in The Himalayas. The common factor amongst all these Travellers has been the desire to experience first-hand one of the most remote, beautiful and challenging places on earth.  

We have helped thousands of Travellers in experiencing an adventure of a lifetime. We believe our local knowledge, the quality of our well-trained and local field team and our experience is key to running safe trips that are also fun.








Building Your Expedition

Travellers usually build an expedition from one or more activities: Trekking, Community Projects and Cultural Sites. Our expeditions vary in length, but are usually between 10 days and 3 weeks. Have a look at a few of these itineraries to get you started….

Where & When to Go

We know India & The Himalayas…

We know India & The Himalayas and because we understand the terrain, people and culture better, we’re able to advise on where and when is best to travel, how to make the most of your valuable time and provide you with a richer, safer and more memorable experience.

Expedition Leaders has been providing inspiring expeditions to unspoilt areas of India & The Himalayas for 15 years, including guiding expeditions at over 6,000 metres. We take you to places other providers don’t know about; we offer experiences that only we have the local connections to organise. We use our combined experience to design a highly personalised and unique trip. That’s why many of our Travellers come back to us…
