About Us

IMT offers our clients a unique, individually designed and professionally guided opportunity to experience the excitement and adventure of trekking and climbing in the most spectacular mountains in the world: the Himalaya of Nepal. Our goal is to provide our clients with an individual or small group trekking and climbing experience matched to your experience and schedule. On an IMT trip, as part of your trek and climb, you will have the opportunity to visit a Sherpa community, enjoy a meal with a Sherpa family, visit historic Buddhist monasteries and go behind the scenes in a way not offered by other trekking companies.

All of our high-altitude Sherpa guides have vast experience throughout the Himalaya. All of IMT’s guides have climbed Mt. Everest multiple times as well as many other notable mountains in Nepal. The rich depth and unparalleled experience IMT guides provide will enable you and your group to enjoy an adventure that is, in a word, extraordinary. We look forward to hearing from you.

Namaste

Mission Statement

To create unique treks and climbs in the Himalaya for our clients, in equal economic partnership with our Sherpa guides.

We do this for several reasons: By profit-sharing with our guides, we create significant, long-overdue economic opportunities for the Sherpa community. While traditional adventure companies also rely on Sherpas for logistics, expert guiding and support, they unfairly keep for themselves the lion’s share of profits. IMT has a different approach:

We share equally with our Sherpa guides the profits from every trek and climb.

We believe this commitment to the Sherpa community sets us apart from every other guiding company operating in Nepal.

We hope you’ll let IMT create the Himalayan trek you’ve always dreamed about.
