Tanya Perret

Tanya Perret has had a passion for the mountains for as long as she can remember. Originally from Bath, England, she fell in love with the Alps and Himalayas. Since 1997, she has led more than 110 hiking trips in the European Alps and Nepal. She has also ascended both Mont Blanc and the Matterhorn along with many other peaks. One of her favorite trips is the Tour du Mont Blanc, saying, “At the end of the trip, all of the clients had become firm friends.” Tanya started guiding in Nepal in 1998, and has led multiple treks in the Everest Region, Annapurna, Langtang, Helembu, Lower Mustang, and Makalu. Tanya holds the International Mountain Leader guiding qualification and regularly contributes to travel guides. She splits her time between her beautiful old house in the French Alps that dates back to 1746, and her base in the Kopan district of Kathmandu. Tanya is also a Yoga teacher and holds a Masters Degree in Rural Development. When not leading trips, she enjoys skiing and hiking adventures with her family. Tanya is conversant in French and Nepalese.
