The Himalayas provide an array of trekking options suitable for all levels of experience and fitness. From gentle hikes through lush valleys to challenging expeditions to the base camps of towering mountains, there is a trek for everyone.
We draw your kind attention that if you are going to book any trip by online we humbly request you to check out whether that company is legally registered with Nepal Government authorities or not. Because in Nepal these days there are growing many trekking and travel companies without license and paying any tax. They are promoting their travel packages through their personal websites. In their website they are misusing logos of Government authorities. Be careful that using only logos in website means that company is surely registered. The greater concern is whether they have displayed their credentials or not. For past few years lots of travelers are unknowing cheated by those sites of unauthorized travel and trekking companies.
This thing we are focusing here for this reason that If you book your trip with an unauthorized agency in Nepal, there is a greater risk that you will need to face during your stay in Nepal. So in order to protect yourself from those problems, take the following hints into consideration prior to confirm your trip with any travel or trekking company.
Has the Company received authorization from Government Authorities or not ?
Has the Company cleared all taxes or not ?
Does the company have its own bank account with a renowned bank or not ?
Are the Company Directors actively working in trekking sector or not ?
Does the Company follows guidelines of sustainable/ Eco tourism while operating treks & tours?
Is the company insured against accidents happening to their staff or not ?
