Before the booking of any type of tour and trekking trip with any trekking, travel agency, it is quite important to be gained some information about the agency that you are taking. Please be think! Is the company a genuine registered to government authorities with whom you are booking?
This is to be known at the time because there may be found such many companies running business without observing legal formalities imposed by the country act, and even not registered with the concerned office authority etc. Likewise, it has been known that some companies have been running business whose licenses have already expired and not noticed and punished in charge of the unlawful act. In the same manner, we have seen many examples of so - called trekking / touring agencies operated by individuals & freelancers illegally, and some on commission basis with other agencies by creating their own personal website or by contacting personally.
Basically, it is not allowed by the country act; however it has been found in abroad that some tour operators also have been involved in directly operating tours and trekking without any co-operation with local agents and without paying any tax for the government of concerned country for doing so.
In this way, if one has booked his / her travel, trekking trip with such illegally operated trekking or Travel Company is subject to encounter great risk or aggravates during his / her course of journey. In order to be secured in such obligations, take the following hints in consideration prior to confirm your journey with any trekking & travel agency.
