Insuring your team is essential

Many trekking companies in Nepal won't tell you this or do this, but we're not like the rest...
Without guide & porter insurance, your team could lose their life savings, or worse, if something happens to them on your trek.

We can offer you a great flat rate of just $28 per guide or porter for this if you'd like us to arrange it, or you can arrange it yourself.
Note: This is a one-off cost that covers your team for the whole trek - this is not a daily fee.

We'll help you with whatever you need, and get you on the right trek.
