Safety, Our No. 1 Priority
Your safety is our top priority. Our travel itineraries are created after consulting destination experts and local guides familiar with ever-changing conditions of the high mountain environments. All our mountain guides are experienced and have the required license. They have undergone intensive training in wilderness rescue, crisis management and first aid. We hand-pick your guide and make sure that all the safety and security measures are the major priority during your trip. For treks and climbing expeditions we have set aside the requisite number acclimatization days and contingency day in case of emergencies. To provide quality experience, personalized service and ensure a safe environment, we keep our guide and assistant guides to client ratios small. During trips, our experienced mountain guides communicate regularly with our Operation Manager. If an unfortunate incident occurs while trekking or climbing, our team are on standby to organize a rapid medical evacuation. The gear and equipment that we use during expeditions are too of the highest quality.
We support 'sustainable tourism'. We use hotels that are serious about reducing their impact on the environment. While trekking, we urge our clients and to be careful about disposing their waste. To minimize plastic waste in the mountains, we provide our trekking clients with a reusable water bottle. We also dissuade our clients from using soaps or detergents while washing in the river. We make it a point to patronize local businesses that are environmentally friendly. Our company is an active member and supporter of KEEP (Kathmandu Environmental Education Project), an NGO that runs projects aimed at community development, education and environment friendly practices. The NGO also provides training and education to porters and guides.
