The sad truth is that most trekking companies are not environmentally responsible and these magical locales are suffering for it. Nevertheless we endeavor to be the role models for those around us and hope that our principles can contribute to awareness and change.
Safety and Experience
Adventure travel done properly is not risky, but when not done properly things can go wrong - and very seriously so. Every year there are too many deaths on the trails that could have been avoided had proper safety protocol been followed.
Our safety record second to none. Our guides are trained in first aid and hygiene, first aid kits are taken on all trips and oxygen is supplied on higher altitude treks and expeditions. Our guides are highly skilled professionals who have been selected based on their technical proficiency, proven safety records, impeccable judgment and patient, supportive teaching styles.
When it comes to keeping the overheads of our trips low, safety is one area we are simply not willing to compromise in any way. Our client's safety is worth more to us than your business. So if that's not what you're looking for, we have to say we're not the company for you.
Most competitively priced
The packages we have offer unbeatable value for money. But you don't have to take our word on it; we actually recommend our clients shop around to other trekking companies to try to find a similar package at a better price. Unlike international operators, being based in Nepal allows us to keep our overheads to a minimum, so we can offer the same facilities as those provided by a Western company at literally a fraction of the price.
All arrangements for your stay and transportation are made by locals, insuring maximum benefits to the local communities and at the same time keeping costs at a reasonable level with no compromise in standards. Our clients can, therefore, feel assured that a percentage of the tour fee goes directly to the local communities.
Nepal Alternative Treks & Expeditions not only works for personal benefit, but this agency also provides technical assistance for community- based initiatives and NGOs working on civic developments such as poverty reduction, healthcare, human rights, education, and related development projects. Our agency also donates 10 % (ten percent) of our profits from our trekking, tours and other adventure activities. We are also leading Nepal rising youth club which has been helping the local community for decades.
Going on any adventure trip will require an often substantial sum of money paid in advance. Yet trusting a company you have no prior experience with is a risk. We, however, are a fully bonded trek operator authorized by Nepal Government Tourism and Civil Aviation, the Nepal Tourism Board, the Industry Department, the Company Registration Office, the Nepal Rashtra Bank, and the Taxation Office. In short, you can rest safe that your payment is secure with us.
