Travel Alerts

Careful with unauthorized so called trekking and tour companies!!!

Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions would like to provide helpful advice about booking trip in Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan or India. before booking your trip with any trekking and travel agency, it is must important to know whether the company has legally registered with the Nepal government authorities as well as other authorized travel associations of Nepal or not.

There are many companies running trekking and tours business with expired licenses; business that do not observe the legal formalities imposed by the country acts. Similarly, we have seen many examples of so - called trekking / tour agencies illegally operated by individuals & freelancers through their own personal websites. There are thousands of websites owned by freelancer's guides from Nepal and aboard which are not legally registered with Government of tourism.

Additionally, it has been found that some trekking tour operators abroad have been involved with directly operating tours, trekking and expeditions without the required governmental licenses and without paying legally required taxes and insurance for trekking crews.

We like to strongly advice you that if you book your trip with an unauthorized agency in Nepal or abroad, there is a greater risk that problem will occur during the course of your time in Nepal. In order to protect yourself from these problems, take the following hints into consideration prior to confirming your journey with any trekking or travel agency.

  • Is the company registered with the proper government authorities?
  • Is the company insured against accidents happening to their staff?
  • Is the company environmentally conscious?
  • Is the company registered with the appropriate authorized travel and trekking associations?
  • Does the Company have its own Bank account with a reputable bank and bank guarantee?
  • Is the Company clear of back taxes?
