Are our services for trekking staffs more limited?
As we are not bound by agency preferences, we can help you to avoid the “tourist markup” at every step of the way. Agencies often prefer to stick to prescribed itineraries, assembling their staff at the last minute and consequently we have only rudimentary knowledge of the visitor’s preferences. This approach eliminates a great number of creative approaches and frustrates travelers and trekking staffs (Guide, cook and helpers) equally. Throughout your trip to Nepal, we Ethic Himalaya Treks & Expedition P. Ltd’s Trekking staffs make their own decisions regarding ad-hoc itinerary changes or emergencies. Some agencies send out their staffs with a bare-bones cash allowance, which can result in an unfortunate budget crisis. We have more freedom to allocate their resources to ensure that such problems never arise. Our trekking staffs or crew are extensive experience to enables us to choose top-quality staff for your journey, should group itinerary require it.
