There are thousands of trekking agencies inside of  Nepal and outside where so many trekkers book their trek and tour but The price and quality of services defer the price. Many trekkers beliefs that the big and popular travel agency gives quality services and price too that is all illusion because the guide for Heli tour, trekking, tour most of them they are related to many different trek and tour agency that means wherever they get a better salary and service them move so can’t be the same guide at the same place for a long time, the local travel agency and operator also can manage same service and the same helicopter as we have to limit helicopter company in Nepal.
