Your safety is of the utmost importance to us. Therefore, when it comes to keeping the overhead of our trips low, safety is one area in which we simply do not compromise. Our guides are selected based on their technical proficiency, proven safety records, impeccable judgment, their friendly demeanor and their ability to provide helpful and knowledgeable instructions. They are also highly professional and well trained in first aid and personal protection equipment. We also make sure that first aid kits are available on all trips and happily provide oxygen cylinders and PAC Bags upon request (payable). Furthermore, the itineraries are ideally designed to give you enough time for acclimatization.
Going on any adventure trip will require a substantial sum of money to be paid in advance. Yet, trusting a company you have no prior experience with involves risk. However, we are a fully-bonded trek operator authorized by the Nepal Government, Tourism and Civil Aviation Department, Nepal Tourism Board, Industry Department, Company Registration Office, Nepal National Bank and the Taxation Office. We are also affiliated with several prestigious regulating bodies such as Nepal Association for Tour and Travel Agents (NATTA), Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA), Trekking Agencies’ Association of Nepal (TAAN), Adventure Travel Trade Association (ATTA), American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA) and Kathmandu Environmental Education Project (KEEP).
Tourism is an important sector to the Nepalese economy, and as an organization that has been involved in this sector for over two decades, we believe it is our duty to contribute to the Nepalese society in some way. We contribute 1% of our annual profit each year to Child Environment Nepal (CEN), a non-government, nonprofit organization committed to educating and caring for Nepali children orphaned by the Nepali civil war.
