Welcome to Community Action Treks

A Company Specialising in Trekking Holidays in the Himalaya

Doug Scott

CAT is a not-for-profit organisation which supports our sister charity, Community Action Nepal. Our objectives are simple:

  • Provide an unforgettable experience for our customers
  • Ensure fair treatment for the trekking crews that support us
  • Put something back into the regions through which we trek

We believe in being flexible and providing a personal service. We now specialise in providing both standard and bespoke treks to suit small group budgets and timetables. Typically, clients are couples and small parties of families and friends but also much larger school, college, Scout and charity teams.

We are also happy to provide trips for individuals, or individuals or small groups are welcome to ‘advertise’ for trekking partners on the News & Updates page of the website.

Clients can select their preferred dates for departure within the recommended trekking months. Please note that many of our treks are slightly longer than normal and are excellent value for money on a day-by-day basis. Other treks can be considered upon request.

Some of our treks pass Community Action Nepal projects. We are proud to introduce two exciting new treks in the Manasalu region: Tsum Valley Projects, in a beautiful and culturally rich valley and Tsum Valley Projects & North Gorkha Projects.

Please email us at info@catreks.com or telephone 017684 84842 to talk about your options.

Changes to Community Action Treks

Community Action Treks is gathering momentum through the addition of Denise Prior based in London and Bhai Tamang in Kathmandu, to the Cumbrian head office team.

Denise has trekked in Nepal since 2003, whilst Bhai – born in Ghunsa, site of Community Action Nepal’s first project – has years of experience running treks and climbing expeditions with his own high quality operation.

CAT now focuses on treks in Nepal, as well as Bhutan, India and Tibet. Profits made will be used to strengthen the work of CAN.
