Ymh Treks

All our treks run with a minimum of two people and on dates of your choice: come with friends or family and trek at your own pace in comfort and style.

We recognise that some people love their independence and just need a bed at the end of each day, whilst some like to have everything taken care of and nothing to do but trek and enjoy. For those of you who’d like the ease of a complete package we have four very special trekking holidays to choose from. All our treks run with a minimum of two people and on dates of your choice: come with friends or family and trek at your own pace in comfort and style. For those of you who’d like to join a group our new YMH Everest Base Camp trek also offers a couple of fixed departure dates. If you’re not sure which trek is best for you, please have a look at the ‘First time in Nepal’ and ‘First Time Trekker’ pages. You should also find the ‘Trek Grading’ information helpful. If in doubt, contact us for a chat!

Histories

The Himalaya are among the youngest mountain ranges on the planet and consist mostly of uplifted sedimentary and metamorphic rock. According to the modern theory of plate tectonics, their formation is a result of a continental collision along the convergent boundary between the Indo-Australian Plate and the Eurasian Plate between 65 and 55 million years ago (Upper Cretaceous). The resultant uplifted and heavily folded rock has since been weathered and eroded down to the, still immense forms, we see today.

The Himalayan belt has both the highest rate of uplift (nearly 10 mm/year at Nanga Parbatand among the highest erosion rates at 2–12 mm/yr. In Hinduism, the Himalayas have been personified as the god Himavat, father of Ganga and Parvati
