Trekking Agencies in Nepal

Trekking Agencies in Nepal
There are various trekking and mountaineering agencies in Nepal. Most of these trekking agencies are located in Kathmandu only. These agencies are affiliated to government bodies and have valid permits for taking out mountaineering expeditions. These agencies are on the regular monitoring of government agencies and comply by all the safety norms that have been prescribed by the UIAA, the central body for climbers and mountaineers.Nearly all of these agencies have shifted to online bookings. At the prescribed sites you can get a list of possible expeditions and the rate quotations. The entire list of the travel agencies can be obtained either from the tourist help cell at the Tribhuwan Airport or can be downloaded from the official website of the Ministry of Tourism, Nepal.These agencies have trained mountain escorts and guides that accompany every expedition. Most of the guides are well versed in English only. Nevertheless, arrangements are made for multilingual guides too. French, Spanish, German, Arabic, Hebrew and Russian are some of the languages for which guides are readily available. The trekking agencies require you to make payments in advance before embarking for the journey.
