The HRE is a scientific trekking company who supports for professional researchers from international communities to experience scientific treks in Nepal. HRE assists to the field based study of PhD students and researchers from the different schools and universities in the High Mountain, Glacier, Glacial lake, permafrost, mountain environments and mountain people and workshop seminars in the Nepal Himalaya.
Many international scholars are closely working with HRE team in Nepal. In the past HRE has closely worked with of Center for Research in Water Resources at the University of Texas at Austin. This work was support by the US Agency for International Development (USAID) High Mountains Adaptation Partnership (HiMAP).
The HRE management and staff are very familiar with glaciated environments, geology and natural resource management in the context of the Nepal Himalaya. In addition, the HRE team has been invaluable to our consultations with community members in the mountain region. HRE teams are extremely capable in performing and providing support for the scientific studies conducted at high altitude and in remote locations. We have participated in several research projects that have collected extensive scientific data in the high mountain of the Nepal Himalaya.
Our team is knowledgeable about scientific equipment and its deployment in the field, including Electrical Resistivity Tomography (ERT), Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), Sonar Bathymetric Surveys, Remote Weather Stations, Time Lapse Cameras, Total Station Land Surveying System, and Subsurface Temperature Sensor Arrays. The ERT, GPR and Sonar equipment require special training for use in the field and the HRE staff has demonstrated their experience during their work on previous expeditions.
