Choosing best Trekking Company and Guides

As of now in 2022 there are numerous options for the travelers to choose among different adventure companies and finding guides for them but the most challenging thing in front of them is to find the best adventure company and guide at reasonable price along with the best in quality.  Usually, travelers hire a guide from a trekking company at low cost and later on they regret for the services they provide. Sometimes, after paying a good sum of cost too travelers are not satisfied for the services they are being provided.

Moreover, in the market there are also many third-party commission taking companies who only operate business on online platform. These companies aren’t legally registered accordingly to the law of Nepal, later on after handing guest to another party they don’t take any responsibility of the guests which leads to the decline of the quality service provided to them.

So, one of the most important things to keep in mind while trekking to Mt Everest at 2023 is to choose the trekking companies and trekking guides wisely. We recommend you to choose Adventure Vision Treks for the best trekking experiences with best guides.

Condition of coronavirus and EBC trek at 2024

Despite its ultra-remote location and bounty of fresh aircraft, the Everest region was still impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. In March 2020, both China and Nepal closed their borders and canceled the 2020 Everest climbing season.

Nepal officially reopened to tourism on Sept 24, 2021 and is issuing visas on arrival to all travelers including those that are not vaccinated too.

If you’re eager to get trekking in the Everest Region you will need a vaccination card. As of March 13th, 2022 vaccinated travelers no longer need a Covid test to enter the country.

We suggest booking your package with trekking for the safety reasons.

2.- In Kathmandu you can found porters and guides easily in pretty much any agency, they can assist you to organize and gather the staff you need depending on your needs. You can trek by hiring a guide only from Kathmandu. But there is a chance of fraud guides. If the guide does not belong to any agency then you may face problems to contact them if they left you or got a discussion during the trek.

3.- Doing it independently will be the cheaper option, although it needs more planning, and the purchasing of external transportation of Plane, Bus, or jeep from Kathmandu to Lukla.

Also, trekking permits need to be handled, if you’re confident enough to be alone on the treks this is a great way to save up some money, and the rest is quite easy to follow everyone stays in the same town although you can find many tea houses for accommodation and no booking is needed. But if you are traveling in the best season(autumn/spring) the chance of teahouse overbooked is very high. if you feel sick or any other problems in the Himalaya you may lose your life because of being alone. We don’t suggest you for solo traveling. Safety always comes in first for saving some money you may lose your life.
