Best Trekking Agencies in Nepal

Trekking Agencies infographic

When tourists are coming to Nepal for trekking a very frequently asked question is – which trekking agency, or which trekking agencies, is/are the best in Nepal? Let’s help you with some insights on what to look for, and provide you with a few recommendations below. 

Price obviously plays a role when choosing your trekking agency. When it comes to getting a once-in-a-life-time-experience-in-Nepal, and a safe one of course, the following factors are very relevant to consider as well:

  • Does the trekking agency provide insurance for each of its staff, joining the trekking tours? This parameter is relevant to ensure that safety is prioritized not only for you, being the customer, but also for the local staff hired by the trekking agency.
  • Is the staff of the trekking agency properly equipped? Some trekking agencies dispatch their porters and guides without proper equipment – this is obviously not good enough, and worst case could have dire consequences.
  • Does the trekking agency provide guides with valid guide certificates? While many factors go into getting a great guide, making sure that your guide(s) have actually been trained in how to guide and assist you, will certainly help.
  • Is the trekking agency licensed for carrying out trekking tours in Nepal? Some trekking agencies operate without licenses. These trekking agencies should be avoided as they basically operate on an illegal basis and therefore can provide no guarantee as to your safety, or their staff’s safety.
  • Is sufficient emphasis put on health and safety during your trek? While trekking is generally not dangerous it can indeed become harmful if the necessary precautions are not taken. Choosing a trekking agency with great safety standards and one which continuously follows-up and updates/upgrades its safety standards, and equipment, is very important.
  • Is the trekking agency carrying out your trek in a sustainable way, with as little negative impact on the environment as possible?
  • Does the trekking agency have a contract with a local helicopter emergency evacuation company, in case rescue is needed?

While some of the above factors can easily be found out before the trek, other factors only become apparent after you’ve trekked with the trekking agency, as only then will you know whether the trekking agency and the guide, inter alia, truly did take the necessary health and safety precautions.?.

While this article is not intended to promote Bookmundi each of our member agencies are being reviewed by the customers, after every trek, as only in this way can we ensure a high enough service and safety standard. If at any point in time a member trekking agency is not delivering a high enough safety or service standard we’ll have to take them off the site, until the issue in question has been remedied. 

But, which trekking agencies are the best in Nepal? While we firmly believe in the capability and service level of each of the member trekking agencies available in Bookmundi, the following trekking agencies in Nepal deserve praise and attention (listed in random order) for their consistently high service levels, great management, and qualified trekking guides:

  1. Nepal Hiking Team
  2. Nepal Eco Adventure
  3. Icicles Adventure Trek
  4. Green Valley Nepal
  5. Mosaic Adventure
  6. Trek Nepal
  7. Breakfree Adventures
  8. Mountain Monarch
  9. Social Tours
  10. Himalayan Leisure

  16. Best trekking agency depends upon their services, reliability,truth of information they provide and many more. I have found that many trekking agency remove their bad reviews by paying a lot of money to Tripadvisor .Similarly the price after services also become important.Many other agencies have different price for their same packages in different website.When travelers look and buy packages through those website and go to Nepal,they indeed have to pay more amount than they need to pay because the website of trekking agencies in Nepal has got hidden prices. The safety is another issue for differentiating best and other. So be careful choosing right company before travelling.
