TREKKING INFORMATION

Make sure you are using authorized agency

There are several groups or individuals, who have placed websites on Internet and offer very cheap prices to attract for various trips.

They are not only illegal tour operators, but also not registered to the authorities, and responsible to no one. Before going with them, you must know some facts. If you need a helicopter rescue or something happens during your trip - it is possible there might be nobody to help you, or the assistance could be delayed / not operated. In other hand travelling without necessary permits and organizing trip with illegal operators violate the laws of Nepal, which hopefully you don't want.
