How to choose the best local Sherpa trekking company in Nepal? Choosing the best trekking agency in Nepal can be a giant headache. Which is the best Local trekking agency in Nepal? Are they real local expert Sherpa Company? Are the porters well paid or mistreated?

We believe that everyone wishes to select one of the best trekking companies in Nepal for your Nepal trek and Tour. One with a trustworthy reputation, that fits your financial plan, and that offers multiple trekking package options that you truly want, for example, standard trek package if you are traveling on the budget, family trek package if you are doing a family trip to Himalaya, or best luxury treks package options if you are looking upgraded high-quality hotel and comfort lodge trek options or solo private trek options to group join trek options. The good agency offers everything as per your interest and budget with a tailored itinerary and package.

But with more than 1000 local trekking operations out there. Deciding to choose the right and best company that fits (Just right) is difficult.

Trekking in Nepal can be a wonderful experience with the right Expert local Sherpa Company, or it can be lousy otherwise. Picking the perfect adventure trekking agency that is best for you depend on the quality of Guides, the trek itinerary, the quality of Hotels and lodges, transportations, the quality of service and your safety, the extra activities during free days, the insurance of the guide and porter are also most important.

Here are the 7 things you should think & questions when choosing the best local trekking company in Nepal.

1. Price: What is included & what is not included?

Price is frequently the first thing people compare when considering different trek companies for Nepal, but it can be a little misleading. So, when agreeing with trek quotes from the provider’s look wisely at what is included and what is not included in the Package. Many trekking companies want you to pay extra money when the trek starts or don’t include hotel accommodation in city or city Tour entrance fees. Consequently, That low-priced trek and tour won’t be so cheap if you have to pay for it all while you’re in Nepal.

2. Guide: Expert certified Local Sherpa guide or Non-Certified guide?

Guides can make your trek wonderful or break down your trek. Make sure the company uses a local expert Sherpa guide who is honest, knowledgeable, and helpful. For Nepal Trekking & expeditions, the guide should be local, experienced, flexible, and patient. Best Trekking Company always keeps expert sherpa guides. Check our Expert Sherpa Guides Profiles 

3. Trek itinerary: contingency days & extra days or Not?

We highly recommend you to have extra 1 or 2 days in Kathmandu before you start your trek. Two nights in Kathamndu prior to starting the trek would help you to get over jet lag after a long flight & to get well prepared. The extra night will enable this & will absolutely decrease your pre-trek pressure level. Also Sometimes Domestic flights might be delayed or canceled in Nepal so if you are planning to fly to Lukla or Jomsom then you’ll need to keep extra contingency days.

4. Safety record: Certified company or not?

Make sure the trekking company keep on all the proper security requirements and is credited by the Nepal government, the government where they are listed, and any other applicable Travel associations like Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA), Trekking Agencies Association of Nepal(TAAN), Adventure Travel Trade Association and KEEP. Check our Government license & other Legal Documents.

5. Credibility: Established company or Not?

First, you need to make sure that the Best trekking company you select is a renowned, trustworthy provider. The older, the wiser, particularly while it comes to adventure trekking companies. Your health and safety come always come first in adventure trips. Find out how long the agency you’re seeing has been around in trekking & expeditions in the Himalayas. Make sure that the company is owned and operated by a real local Sherpa who is associated with adventure trek & climbing in Nepal for a long time.

6) Accommodations: Quality hotel in the city & well available lodge in Mountain or Not?

Examine-in what way your money is spent to find out if you are honestly receiving the best value for your money or not? Do they accommodate you good 3 Star Hotel or 5 Star hotels in the city or not? Do they provide you well an available lodge while you are trekking or not? Are you paying for 5-star hotels but staying in two-star hotels? You have to be clear with prices and hotel accommodation prior to booking your trek.
