A good kitchen crew is available for catering on camping treks. We also offer all levels of guides, who have expertise in a range of languages including English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Japanese and Chinese, particularly relevant for cultural tours in the historic towns of Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur.
Emergency Support: All our mountain expeditions are supported with two-way walkie-talkies and, for use in case of emergency, a satellite phone link to our Kathmandu Office. All our treks report their progress on a daily basis to the Office in Kathmandu when the cell phone network or landline telephone links permit. If any trekker gets problem due to high altitude or physical injuries that prevents them continuing on the trek, we are able to operate a rescue flight by a helicopter immediately. (Please note, however, that such flights can sometimes be delayed by severe weather and are dependent on your individual insurance arrangements. Trekking Encounters Nepal strongly advises you to buy an insurance policy in your home country that covers accidents, medical problems, and helicopter rescue). Though with our company such problems are highly unlikely, whatever happens on a trek our team is committed to provide care in adversity as if you were family!
Environmental responsibility: All our guides are aware of environmental issues and are strongly committed to follow the principles of Eco-tourism while on a trek:
- Minimize impact.
- Build environmental and cultural awareness and respect.
- Provide positive experiences for both visitors and hosts.
- Provide direct financial benefits for conservation.
- Provide financial benefits and empowerment for local people.
- Raise sensitivity to host countries' political, environmental and social climate.
Social Responsibility is an ethical ideology that companies should contribute to the welfare of the society and not be devoted to maximizing profits only. Trekking Encounters Nepal is a business organization which has put an obligation to act to benefit society at large by avoiding engaging in socially harmful activities and performing acts that directly advance social goals. We are one of the Socially Responsible companies that act in a number of ways to benefit society; by employing locals, giving donations to preserve the arts and culture, funding academic scholarships, supporting community-building initiatives and so on. We are also committed to reduce the pollution in the environment because of our customers' activities.
Since Nepal is one of the under developed countries in the world, the private sectors can play a vital role to support its people in many ways. We have been donating a certain percentage of our profits to local charities that work for environmental protection, education and health services in Nepal.
