What people are saying about our adventures
Five14 is a company that has helped me see life differently. They are not what I thought I would encounter upon arriving to Nepal, far from just an adventure company they are a company seeking to honor Nepalis and their families and much as Nepalis seek to honor their own guests!

My experience was great! I was well taken care of and the adventure was amazing. I would recommend it highly as a culturally insightful trip.
Five 14 did a wonderful job of making my trip to Nepal enjoyable and safe. They made sure we were informed, they took care of us. I never felt like we would be taken advantage of because the people at Five 14 took care of all of the details. When you are in a different country and culture it is very nice to have people who have genuine concern and care for you and help you out. The people at Five 15 know the area and have built trust and friendships with the people who live there. These friendships and the trust they have built with the locals bring a joy and sense of peace to a trip that could otherwise be chaotic and overwhelming. Our guide Abel was patient and took the time to answer our five thousand questions. He took us to a beautiful place in the Lang Tang Valley. We were able to go to a remote village, a place that isn’t bombarded by tourists. It’s wonderful to see places that few get the privilege to experience.
