Choosing the right Trekking Company
Before you going to book any type of trip with a trekking- or travelagency, it is important to collect some information. Be careful! Is the company a genuine company, registered to the government authorities?
This is to illuminate companies running business without observing legal formalities imposed by the country act, and even not registered with the concerned office authority etc.. Likewise, it has been reported that some companies have been running business, whose licenses have already expired and not noticed. In the same manner, we have seen many examples of socalled trekking/touring agencies operated by individuals & freelancers illegally, and some on commission basis with other agencies by creating their own personal website or by contacting people personally.
Basically, it is not allowed by the country act (however it has been handled abroad), that some touroperators also are involved in directly operating tours and trekking without any co-operation with local agents and without paying any tax for the government of the country for doing so. In order to be secured in such obligations, take the following hints in consideration, prior to confirm your journey with any trekking- and, or travelagency:
* Has the company registered to government authorities?
* Has the company insured staffs against accidents?
* Is the company environmentally conscious?
* IS THE STAFF WELL PAYED SO THAT THEY CAN MAKE A LIVING!?
