Yes, Nepal is a safe country even after the earthquake we had already thousands of visitors each month. About 10 years ago we had a really big civil war between the revel party Maoist and the government but now both did a peace agreement and handled the government together.

There are so many agencies in Nepal upon your budget you can find Cheap, Moderate, or Luxury all kinds of trip services. I would suggest you see the company profile, their Reviews, and the response of the agency if possible talk on the phone and decide before you sent advance.
If you go on Google also you can find some highlighted agencies too but don’t believe the agency has many reviews you should face the manager or director then you can see his potential and services.

Teahouse trekking is common activities for trekking in Nepal now as it is easy to manage and safely compare to a camping trek. Teahouse trek means you will sleep in a small house, and lodges each night of your trekking. You get to experience the culture, localities, traditions, and many other interesting things if you stay at the tea house.
Teahouse trek generally needs to get authority from the Nepal government to run the tea house so we will be safe if we are staying at the tea house because just in case they behave negatively we can complain to him/her straight to the government-related office. But camping trek does not have this option it is all at your own risk.
Nepal is a small country but has mixed inhabitant people which means there are so many different foods. Generally, we serve all kinds of food in I city such as Indian, Nepali, continental, Italia, western, and Tibetan. So when you are in a city you can have all those items and taste the food but during the trekking, you should not expect all kinds of food still, the tea house from the trek will serve you spaghetti, pizza, Nepali food (Thali), Momo, fried noodles, rice, chicken, buffalo item food, eat which is enough to try a different taste in a different day.
Yes, we used to do this for many years and we will provide you with quick service and a reasonable price. Besides this, we also organize, rafting, City tour, homestay, volunteering plus trek, jungle safari, and many more.
