The history tells us that in 1965 Colonel Jimmy Roberts introduced the world to trekking. As a former Gurkha officer and military attaché at the British Embassy in Kathmandu he had spent years of his life walking the hills of Nepal. His idea, revolutionary for the time, was to provide tents together with Sherpas, to guide and cook. This made Nepal and the Himalaya available to a wide community and was an immediate success. A lot of developments have happened over the years until it became a best adventure sport in its own right, and it continues to gain popularity at present.
