Legal Document

Before booking your trip with any trekking and travel agency, it is quite important to know whether the company has legally registered with the Nepal government authorities as well as other authorized travel associations of Nepal.

It is important to be aware that there are many companies running business with expired licenses; business that do not observe the legal formalities imposed by the country act. In the same manner, we have seen many examples of so - called trekking / touring agencies illegally operated by individuals & freelancers through their own personal contact and websites.

Additionally, it has been found that some trekking/tour operators abroad have been involved with directly operating tours and trekking expeditions without the required governmental licenses and without paying the appropriate taxes.

Finally, if you book your trip with an unauthorized agency in Nepal or abroad, there is a greater risk that problems will occur during the course of your time in Nepal. In order to protect yourself from these problems, take the following hints into consideration prior to confirming your journey with any trekking or travel agency.

  • Is the company registered with the proper government authorities?
  • Is the company insured against accidents happening to their staff?
  • Is the company environmentally conscious?
  • Is the company registered with the appropriate authorized travel associations?
  • Does the Company have its own Bank account with a reputable bank?
  • Is the Company clear of back taxes?

We at Mission Eco Trek offer you secure travel arrangements and are committed to making your holiday safe and enjoyable.

Testimonials

Two weeks holiday in Nepal with Mission Eco-Trek

My wife and I took a 2 week tour in Nepal with Mission Eco-Trek in Feb 2011 and had a fantastic time. Mission Eco-Trek provided the very highest caliber guides and Ram Kumar (the proprietor) personally made sure that everything went smoothly. When storms caused our original flights to be cancelled and then cancelled for a second time, he graciously accommodated our changes at no extra cost. The cost was reasonable and the services provided were exceptional -even beyond what we had expected from the contract....

Namaste!
