Core Values

Take something back

It’s true, at Himalayan Shepherd changing people’s lives isn’t just a mantra, it’s the very core of our culture, the essence of who we are, and the force behind everything we do. Our goal is to ensure an authentic and unforgettable life-changing experience for everyone because if you’re not changing, you’re not growing, and isn’t that what life is all about?

Do the right thing

Himalayan Shepherd is built on one very simple principle, do the right thing all the time, every time and this is a commitment to continually challenge ourselves to see the big picture and bring about meaningful and positive change whenever we can.

The bizzare

While some companies are busy thinking outside the box, we have learnt a long time ago that it’s best to just get rid of the box altogether. That’s why we encourage our staff – and our travellers – to embrace the bizarre.

Our philosophy

Our trips are designed to be genuine explorations for travellers who are interested in understanding something about the area that they are visiting and not just “seeing it” through a bus window. Our itineraries are original and unique and we’re not just jumping on the bandwagon like many. All of our trips are operated with the utmost in environmental responsibility and cultural sensitivity.

Keeping our own house in order

Himalayan Shepherd leads by example and keeps our own house in order. Our staff is aware of the importance to re-use and recycle and everyone is encouraged to follow a set of guidelines which cover simple but important measures such as conserving energy, minimising waste and reducing our carbon footprint.
