Everest Base Camp Trek with Som Tamang

EBC trek guide

Though born and raised in Nepal, Take on Nepal founder Som Tamang and his family are now Australian citizens. Som received a Pride of Australia award for his achievements with the not-for-profit organisation Friends of Himalayan Children in Cairns.
The charity he started carries out a lot of work in the Batase area of Nepal — building new classrooms for the school, housing disadvantaged children and helping local women elevate themselves through new work opportunities.

Som founded the trekking company Take on Nepal by using his extensive local knowledge and experience as a guide in Nepal to provide affordable and meaningful treks and leads a group to an Everest base camp once a year.
He was motivated to provide his services after hearing about the less-than-satisfactory experiences many were having with larger companies.
Som is dedicated to providing opportunities to some of the most disadvantaged and vulnerable people in Nepal.
“Australia is our home now, but I never forget where I came from,” Som says.
“Take on Nepal is a way of bringing the two together.
“By taking groups of trekkers to the Everest region I feel I’m helping both cultures.
“The village benefits from the employment it brings and the villagers benefit from exposure to more open, women-friendly cultures.
“The trekkers benefit from trekking with a professional and experienced team who are passionate about making your experience the best one possible.”

Joining Som’s group gives trekkers a unique insight into Nepal alongside an experienced guide and mountaineer who has a passion and drive that is inspiring and motivating.
During this powerful 14-day trek you will learn about the mountains, the culture of Nepal and about the incredible humanitarian work that he has been committed to, over the past 15 years.
“This trek is not to be missed, you will be surrounded by the best team of guides and porters in Nepal.
