Company Certificates about Gokyo Treks !
Before booking your trekking tours or climbing in Nepal Himalayas with a trekking agency, everyone must understand about trust operators. It is quite important to know the tour company certificates. Guest needs to understand whether the company is legally registered under the law of Nepal government authorities including trade travel associations in Nepal.
It is always very essential to be aware that there are many enterprises running a business without valid licenses; a business that does not observe the legal formalities imposed by the country act. Furthermore, we have seen many examples of trekking & tour agencies illegally operating by individuals & freelancers through their own personal websites.
Likewise, it is also come to know that some overseas tour operators involve with directly operating tours and trekking expeditions without necessary governmental licenses and without paying the appropriate taxes. Thus, if you book your trip with an unauthorized agency in Nepal or abroad, there is a greater risk in terms of staff insurance and financial security.
Therefore, to protect yourself from these problems, take the following hints into consideration prior to confirming your journey with any trekking or travel agency in the Himalayas.
– Is this business registered within proper government authorities?
– what about the company registration within properly authorized travel associations?
– Has the company insured against accidents happening to their staff?
– How about this company being environmentally conscious?
– Is this firm have its own Bank account within a reputable bank?
