Reasons to trek with us

1. Commitment for quality trips
We are interested to do fewer, quality trips than just more business. We help you choose the right trek and work together with you to design the right itinerary for you. We tailor the itinerary to accommodate your personal requirements so that you get exactly what you want .A trekking tour in the mountains is much unlike a guided tour in the cities .It requires lots of insight and experiences to organize the trip  properly. We make the itineraries carefully keeping all the details in mind- your fitness, the weather, your previous trekking experience and the days available to you. Leaving nothing to chances , we give attention to every details. Our friendly and experienced guides will give you warm , personalized services during the treks. Upon request we provide guides  who speaks your language. We are flexible, we listen to you. We choose clean, quiet and well run hotel and restaurants .We are truly committed to offer you quality trips.

We have field staffs of varied experiences in the mountains to ensure a successful trip.They are committed to serve you, they are friendly, and they have good knowledge of your needs and difficulties in the mountains.They will take good care of you on the trails.

3. Reasonnable price
We neither wish to be the cheap   company which fails to provide the services and ruins your precious trip nor we wish to be an  expensive one. Over the years it has always been our effort to provide quality services for the most reasonable price possible .Our tours offer great value for the quality of the services we provide .We want to be competitive but we can not leave the quality behind.

4. A local company
Being a local Nepalese trekking company, we are naturally more familiar to our land and the people.You will find a native taste on our tours.Also the money you pay to us goes directly to the hands of needy local people and supports the local economy. With us you are not just one more client, but an important guest whom we will serve will all the local hospitality. It is always cheaper organizing a trip through a local operator.

5. Safety
Safety of the group as well as of the trekking crews is an important issue in a high altitude trekking. To ensure your safety, we use guides who have good trekking experiences. We put a strong  emphasis on properly briefing on altitude sickness to the group before departure. All our itineraries have proper acclimatization days wherever necessary .We provide quality equipments and tents , medical kits and extra staffs to care if someone gets sick while on the mountains .If there be a need for emergency evacuation we have arrangements for helicopter rescue .All our guides , sherpas and porters are fully insured . We provide them necessary clothings and boots .You are also strongly suggested to have proper travel insurance, specially,  if you are going to high altitude trekking .

6. Responsible trekking
We strongly emphasize on responsible trekking practices, responsible towards the environment and towards the culture of host community.

We are a member of Kathmandu Environmental Education Project (KEEP) and an active participant on their activities.

The Himalayas are  relatively newer mountain chains and have  a very fragile ecosystem.
Lots of forests have been cut in the past to cater to the needs of the trekkers  like cooking and boiling water. We prefer lodges in the mountains where they use renewable energy for running the lodge. Simillarly, you can help avoiding the use of plastics in the mountains ( wherever possible ) , drinking can beer (instead of bottled beer , bottles are difficult to dispose in the mountains )  and using purifying tablets instead of buying bottled water . A respect to local culture would be highly appreciated.
