History Timeline

1952 Swiss Foundation for Alpine Research, the research aimed to find a way to summit from the Southern route, where Pasang Phutar was a sherpa.

Inspiring adventure travel company

1953 Pasang Phutar Sherpa was a high-altitude sherpa porter who he made 2 trips to South Col carrying supplies. 

Two people, wearing outdoor winter gear, sit on a rock with a grassy background. The woman wears a red jacket and sunglasses, while the man sports a checkered shirt with a red jacket tied around his waist. It's an inspiring scene that would easily fit into any adventure travel company's portfolio.

1960 Jugal Himal, Hisayuki Ito expedition aim was to climb the highest peak of the Jugal Himal Range standing at 23,240 ft.  Pasang Phutar was the sirdar of the expedition and made it to Camp IV 22,310 ft.

A family of four stands outside on a sunny day. The parents and one child wear matching blue T-shirts, while another child in overalls holds a finger to their mouth. Trees and seated people are in the background, enjoying what seems like a perfectly crafted journey by REI Adventures.

1984 Pasang Phutar’s son founded Last Frontiers Trekking, a beginning of the new chapter.

Everest Peace Climb

1990 Last Frontiers Trekking was the ground logistic management company for the Everest Peace Climb in 1909.

Since 2004 Mingma’s eldest son joined the company as the third generation of the family into the travel industry.

Signature Trips

Experiences that last a lifetime

Although it can be fun to plan and design your own trips, it does come with some challenges, and that’s where we come in, to help you plan a personalized trip. Plus, we also offer special exclusive trips, where we collaborate with experts and professional guides to plan trips and adventures that aren’t available anywhere else. These specially offered trips include many hands-on activities with professionals, plus activities with locals that you don’t usually have in a regular travel itinerary.

World Adventure Travel Collective

Proud to join the World Adventure Travel Collective

 
Last Frontiers is honored to be part of the World Adventure Travel Collective.  When REI Adventures, one of the top outdoor adventure companies in the world suddenly and unexpectedly shut down its international trips division in early 2021, several inbound tour operators suppliers for REI Adventures came together to form World Adventure Travel Collective.
 
The World Adventure Travel Collective represents a selection of owner-operated, locally-based tour operators from around the world. Every member of the WATC brings with them a long history of providing expert local guides and unique, sustainably operated trips for a leading adventure travel company that has recently exited the international travel space.
 
Toronto-based consulting firm Bannikin announced the launch of the World Adventure Travel Collective (WATC), a welcome new addition to the global adventure travel supply chain.

Hear From One Of Our Travel Photography Circle

A man with a shaved head, light skin, and a light smile, wearing a light blue button-down shirt, poses for a headshot against a plain background, embodying the look of a seasoned travel photographer ready for his next photo adventure.

In 2017, I met John in
Seattle. John has previously
been to Bhutan many years
ago, and wanted to do a
Photo Tour in Bhutan. We
planned out for 2 years
ahead of the tour, and
finally operated it in 2019. I
personally learned quiet a
bit about Photo Tours, and
was amazing to be a likeminded
group of guests.

Travel By Themes

Let’s try something different! Travel by Theme

The usual travel process might include you thinking of where you want to travel, then doing some research, and then traveling to the new area with no focus or specific goal. We know it can be exciting to travel without specific goals, however after some time the excitement might turn to boredom. We want to help you try something new and different to bring that excitement back to your travel adventures.

This is why we offer tours based on our various themes. These themes have been carefully separated into areas that you can focus on and gain some insight on when traveling. We offer Photography tours, Wildlife tours, Craft and Culinary, Culture and Heritage, Exploration and Adventure, Trekking Tours, Sacred and Spiritual, and so many other themes for you to focus on.

Volunteer
What a wonderful memory - my 60th birthday! Along with 15 fellow Trekkers from around the world, we were led by Nima Sherpa and his crew on a wonderful journey to Mount Everest Base Camp, in November 2011. It is hard to explain the incredible level of organization that Nima brought to our trek. His calm, but controlled and confident manner left us with a feeling of security. There was no doubt that he was watching out for us every step we took.
Joyce Arnott
Guest Traveler
In November 2012 I had the pleasure of trekking to the Annapurna Base Camp under the expert care of Last Frontiers Trekking. Nima Sherpa and his staff are true professionals fully experienced with all aspects of trip execution, and can handle any situation that may arise unexpectedly. Their attentiveness to our needs was always front and center; their desire to make the experience as rewarding as possible was genuine and extended from Sherpa to sirdar to cook to kitchen crew and porters.
