Safety during the Trip:
We highly care for your security while you are traveling with us as your safety is the utmost importance to us.
Our trekking crew (guides, cooks and porters) are carefully selected for your trip.
We employ guides who are licensed by Nepal Government Ministry of Tourism and Civil Aviation. Sherpa Travel guides are reliable and honest. Our trekking crew will provide security and will remain attentive throughout the trip. It is also your responsibility to take care of yourself and your belongings while traveling. Never leave your baggage unattended at the hotel lobby, airport, and crowded campsites.
While in Katmandu, keep your passport, money and credit cards in secure place such as money pouch where pick pockets do not have easy access.
While on the trek, carry money and credits card in your money pouch which should be with you at all times. Never leave your money and credit cards in the luggage.
During the trek, your luggage is usually carried by a porter and is safe. In the evening, when you arrive at the lodge or campsite, claim your luggage and put inside the tent or lodge room. Most trekking destinations are safe. However, our guide will advise you in some locations where you may need to be extra careful (particularly in overcrowded places). Be very vigilant on your valuables such as passport, money, credit cards, cameras, and binoculars. These should be carried by you at all times and put in a secure place at night. Popular tourism destinations where many people travel through have greater chances of things getting lost. So being extra careful helps.
The above questions and answers are also relevant for Nepal, Bhutan, India and Tibet, as all trips. Sherpa Travel also has regionally specific travel information along with the tour information. If you have additional questions, please feel free to inquire, and we will be pleased to answer all your questions and help you the best we can to make your trip pleasant and comfortable.
