WHY ORGANIZED?

Nepal is a country where time is almost irrelevant. The Nepali people generally take their time in getting things done. They are quite used to sitting around for hours waiting for paperwork to be processed. They are equally as prepared to wait for days for a delayed flight or a broken down bus. While this is a part of the life and experience of Nepal, travelers on a tight schedule and/or a tight budget may find these delays frustrating, stressful and a possible detraction from the enjoyment of their time in Nepal. Having your itinerary organized by a local trekking company such as Different Treks can give you peace of mind while we sort out any hassles. We like to ensure that your holiday experience in our beautiful country is one of good memories by having:

 

  • No waiting around for the paperwork.
  • No waiting for seats on buses or planes [allowing of course for weather conditions – it does snow here!].
  • All permits organized in advance.
  • All entry fees, trekking fees pre-paid.
  • Alternative itinerary, accommodation or transport arranged if you encounter bad weather, cancelled flights etc.
  • No problems with food or water – all prepared hygienically by your cook and kitchen crew.
  • No heavy packs to carry.
  • A guaranteed place to sleep each night.

You can travel on your own or in a small group making all your own arrangements, join a group when you arrive, book with a trekking company in advance or on arrival, carry all of your own gear or hire porters/guides to help you and you can trek using tea-houses, camping or a combination of both.
