How to Book?

How to book holiday trip in Nepal?

Satori Adventures and Expedition aims at giving proper information to many travelers, trekkers and climbers who have some confusion regarding the booking process of the trip in Nepal. Satori Adventures therefore desires to provide a guideline for the first-time visitors or travelers so they can comfortably start the process to book the selected package legally. Before starting the booking process we always advise our trekkers, travelers and climbers to check whether the company is genuine and whether they are fully safe to travel in the company’s guidance. We ask them to be acquainted with the company they want book their holiday trip with. Is the company genuine and are authorized from Government of Nepal, Office of the Company Registrar, Department of Tourism and Civil Aviation, Nepal Rastra Bank ‒Central Bank of Nepal (authorized for foreign currency), Permanent Account Number (PAN), and the Department of Cottage & Small Industries. Are they financially secured and environmentally conscious? We advise them to make sure about these formalities because there are some companies in Nepal that have been running a business without abiding by the rules and regulation of the Government. Some companies were once registered but by now their licenses have already been expired and yet they have providing the services illegally.

On many occasions, Government of Nepal and Trekking Agency Association of Nepal have found that many foreigners’ tour operators, NGOs and INGOs have been involved in directly operating tours, trekking, and mountaineering holiday adventures without having government license and abiding by the Government rules. It’s been found that many individuals, freelance guides and porters have been arranging trips illegally by creating their own personal website. We have observed that many trekkers and climbers face a host of problems once they arrive in Kathmandu as they lack adequate information. Many file complaints to Nepal Government and Trekking Agency Association of Nepal for legal action and advanced payment refund.Hardly any justice is given to the cheated clients.Thus, so as to prevent all these probable problems we request our travelers to check the company before booking any trip to the Himalayas.
