Important note from Nepal Trek Adventures and Expedition P. Ltd
Nepal Trek Adventure and Expeditions’ first priority is its customer’s safety. So, register with your embassy in Kathmandu, particularly on the off chance that you intend to go trekking. Try not to trek alone. The guided trek is mostly preferable while traveling in Nepal. While trekking in the mountainous region we cannot predict weather conditions to avoid consequences occurring due to bad weather we prescribe guided trek. Changes in the weather, unexpected sickness of a group member, unanticipated natural disasters might bring changes in the designed itinerary. In such a case, the guide will help you to overcome the problem. Be prepared to be flexible if necessary. Don’t rush or run, do as the guide says. Don’t travel without travel insurance.
