How do you find right trekking agencies in Nepal?
Since the tourism has flourished, the travel agencies, hotels and apartment
business have mushroomed. Even though there are hundreds of agencies in
Thamel, the main hub of tourist, you have to be careful how to judge them.
Thanks to the internet, you can read reviews on many reputed sites like Lonely
Planet, TripAdvisor, Agoda and many more.
For example, if you were to learn more about Adventure Bound Nepal then the
best and fast way to do is going to TripAdvisor Review for Adventure Bound Nepal
and that brings the reviews by tourists or clients of this agency.
What to Expect in Nepal?
Expectation can be huge or less, but one thing is for sure, and that is when you
come to Nepal, you will certainly feel very different world than. People are busy
and they are calm at the same time. However, one thing can bother you is the
traffic, dust and trash. Sometimes it can be chaotic and sometime ridiculously
comic. Still people are friendly and they greet you with Namaste.
Nepal is overall a great country. They pride themselves in history, natural
resources. So if you are planning to visit or thinking of trekking in Nepal then
better start doing research, ask around, see YouTube videos, and decide.
