Why you need travel agencies for trekking in Nepal?

| |

If you’re traveling to Nepal then you are much likely to go for a trek, regardless of the location. Trekking is one of the most popular tourist activities in Nepal. Trekking in Nepal, especially to the Himalayas is high on demand since eight of the top ten highest peaks in the world are situated here. Trekking is highly recommended if you’re traveling to Nepal. However, many travelers wonder if it’s possible to trek alone or to hire a travel agency. 

why you need travel agencies for trekking in nepal

The simplest answer is ‘Yes’. But the question is if you really want to trek alone. In today’s world of technology, you have the availability of digital maps and services on your smartphone that makes traveling so much easier. You might wonder; why go through a costly process of involving travel agencies when you can do it cheaply on your own! 

Well, here’s why…

Firstly, travel agencies are not only there to increase expenses. You can make a lifelong friendly relationship with our guides. This helps create a bond with the locals while traveling. On top of that, you will stay well-informed throughout your trip. Nobody wants to wander places without knowing their actual value. Here are some more reasons why you need a travel agency while trekking in Nepal, take a look. 

Health and Risk Management

Trekking to the Himalayas is a challenging task. The journey is long and the weather is unpredictable. Because of its elevation, Nepal has very diverse climate zones. The trek through the Himalayas takes you through high elevation points which would be a new experience for your body and might cause problems at times. There is a chance of getting altitude sickness which in some cases might even be fatal. Not only that but emergency conditions can arise at any time and if you’re in a country that doesn’t speak your language and you’re basically a stranger.

But if you process through travel agencies, the experienced guides are always there by your side. They know how to handle these situations and emergency cases. They can even call medical helicopters since the travel agencies have the permit and insurance for those conditions. 

Security 

Nepal is a peaceful country. There is security personnel such as police officers in different places throughout the travel route but sometimes that might not be enough. You cannot predict when something unfortunate might occur but you can definitely prepare beforehand and travel agencies help you through it. Other security concerns might also include the wild animals since all the treks go through a wilderness of some sort. There is always some danger of encountering some of the wild animals. The experts from travel agencies will guide you through the difficulty and prepare you for the worst. 

Accommodation and Culture

Travel agencies are well connected to the different lodging areas in the route. They notify beforehand to those places if they have guests arriving with them. That way you don’t have to worry about the night and enjoy the trek with no stress at all. Sometime, all the places might get occupied. Something you don’t want to happen. There are limited places you can go and one town is separated fairly far from the other in these areas. Also, since it’s the village culture you’ll be experiencing throughout the journey, it could be completely new to you. Having a guide by your side can help you understand the norms. 

To conclude, we highly encourage you to go through travel agencies. Trekking is hard, but with a trustworthy companion, it could get a whole lot exciting. To know more about our travel services and packages, visit our website www.coretreks.com or email us at info@coretreks.com.

Higly recommended I did the Langtang Valley trekk with Gosaikunda lakes included. The preparation and communication for that has been great all the time. Nim is an excellent and knowledgeable person. My Trekkingguide was Gorakh and i couldn't have hoped for a better one! I felt like i was in good hands throughout the trekk and he took care of my dietary needs. They also booked my bus ticket to Pokhara and asked the bus driver to pick me up at a place which was closer to my accommodation. Thank you so much Nim!! Next time i will do the Manaslu trekk with you :)

Trek to Rara Lake in Nepal with CoreTreks My wife and I had been planning to visit Nepal since like a year ago. We are really happy and satisfied with our trek to Rara Lake in Nepal. The place is really chilling with beautiful scenery all around. Luckily the weather was fantastic and we got a clear view of the mountains and the lake. We are really humbled to be able to experience such a rare privilege. Our guides informed us that the weather is often bad especially because of the altitude. The alpine vegetation surrounded by mountains was really special to observe. I would like to thank CoreTreks for helping us throughout our journey to Rara Lake.

Great service Beautiful temples and delicious food After touring around the Kathmandu valley, I’m inspired to explore more about Nepal. Unfortunately it will have to be during my next visit. The city is way busier than I expected it to be. As we drove outside the valley, we discovered some peaceful environment and beautiful temples. The Nepali cuisine in Kathmandu was something I would love to try again. They are spicy but delicious. I have to say that the people in Nepal are really friendly and welcoming. Everyone greeted us with love and treated us nicely. There was no fear for a lone traveler like me to get through the tour. Thanks to CoreTreks and the team for making this tour possible for me. I booked last minute but they helped me through everything. I really appreciate it. If you are looking to visit Nepal, I highly recommend that you book from CoreTreks they are the best.

Langtang Trekking 이제 돌아와서 한숨돌리고 적네요. 네팔이란 나라가 처음이고, 한국에서도 등산한번 하지 않았었는데, 갑자기 네팔이 가고 싶었습니다. 네팔에 가면 뭔가 꽉막힌 마음이 뚤릴것 같았고, 복잡한 머리가 정리가 될것 같았습니다. 다행이 CORE TREK 의 Nim을 만나 트레킹을 잘 마무리할 수 있었습니다. 랑탕 출발하기전 호텔 부킹이나 팀스 / 퍼밋 , 환전 및 준비물 구매 등 그리고 이런 일들을 하기위한 이동까지 꼼꼼하게 함께 챙겨 주어서 그나마 잘 준비하여 트레킹을 시작하였습니다. 그리고 트레킹 중간에 대부분이 3G를 사용하지 못해 가족들에게 연락이 되지 않았는데, 다행이 Nim과는 현지 폰으로 연락이 되어, 저 대신 가족들에게 연락도 가능하고, 중간 중간에 문제 있는지등 그리고 복귀 마지막날 뭔가를 잘못먹었는데 아파서 호텔에서만 누워 있었는데, 그래도 타국에 누군가 연락할 수 있다는게 많은 도움이 되더군요. 저는 포터 및 가이드 없이 혼자서 갔다왔고, 트레킹이야 혼자만의 싸움이였지만, 카트만두 출발전 / 복귀후에는 Nim이 많은 도움이 되었네요. 다음에 또 네팔에 오게되면 필히 Nim과 함께 하겠습니다.
