- Small company but quality services
We are not the biggest or the leading companies in Kathmandu as so many people love to call themselves. We are a small eco friendly tour company, but an efficient one, we know and love our job and we have strong commitments for our clients. We are well-run and we cater quality services to clients from all over the world.
- Great value
Is our company the cheapest one in Kathmandu? No. Is our company the expensive ones? Not at all. We neither wish to be the cheapest company which fails to provide proper services and ruin your precious holiday nor we wish to be the expensive one. Over the years our philosophy has remained the same, “good services at reasonable price”. Our prices are a great value for the quality we provide.
- A local company
As a local company we are naturally more familiar with our regions. The money you pay to a local Tour company goes to the hand of needy local people and supports the local economy whereas most of the money you pay to the big travel companies at home remains with themselves. Also traveling with a local company is cheaper than with your home company.
- Safety on the tour/trek
Safety is an important issue, especially in high altitude trekking. With our experience over the years, we make our trekking itineraries allowing enough time for acclimatization (adjusting your body to the high altitude). We do not reduce the number of days that are actually necessary for acclimatization, just to reduce the trip cost. This is where we differ from a number of other companies and this is the single most important reason why a lot of trekkers have to give up their trekking trip in the Himalayas with failure and disappointment( due to the mistaken competition among companies to provide the trip a few dollars cheaper). The high mountain treks are much unlike a sightseeing tour, the basics cannot be compromised.
We brief you well about precautions on altitude sickness. Our experienced guides will take good care of you during the trek. We use quality equipments for trekking and climbing trips. Whenever there is a need, we are ready for prompt rescue by helicopters .We provide our trekking crew with proper clothing and each of them are insured. Also we request you to have proper travel insurance .If you are doing a high altitude trek we recommend that you have insurance covering emergency rescue by a helicopter, if there be a need.
- Responsible travel
We strive to organize culturally rewarding and environmentally friendly trekking trips that provide economic and social benefits to the local communities. We therefore buy most of our trekking food supplies locally, promote eating local food and stay at locally run guesthouses and campsites only. Local entrepreneurs are encourages by us to adopt minimum-impact methods and provide eco-sensitive services. We try to minimize the use of campfires by giving proper clothing advice to our clients and by providing adequate clothing and gear to our porters and guides. Our staffs are well paid and provided with proper clothing while on the trek and they are insured.
Traveling with us means traveling the eco friendly way. It is the duty of all of us to preserve this fragile natural heritage of the Himalayas. In the past, the Himalayan region has greatly suffered from deforestation mostly due to cutting trees for firewood. Recently, we are also experiencing adverse effects of global warming in the form of shrinking glaciers and unexpected weather.
