2. Safety priorities and services are central when traveling through us
We provide first grade safety measures as we have experienced the heights ourselves and know what might happen if we go unprepared on high altitudes or try for peaks over 6000m. Going to soaring heights is always risky, hence we do risk assessments and make SURE our gears and equipment are fully functioning and are of high quality before it goes to you because your safety is our utmost priority. We strictly follow planning and risk assessment to ensure the safety and well-being of our trekking guests journeying through the Himalayas of Nepal. We provide only the best of equipment and provide enough time for trekkers to acclimatize since we know how much the risks are in this mountaineering business. We also provide good advice and tips on trek preparation, especially when climbing peaks in isolated regions. It’s vital for us that you go through a medical checkup before starting a journey especially above 4000m altitude. We consider you not our customers, but our own family; and all our preparation and safety measures are based on this relationship.
3. Small and private groups
Nature is vast on this planet to explore and enjoy by all of us and it’s in human nature to conquer the wild landscapes. But the world is a huge place and the language and culture all around are not easy to overcome. A limited group of adventurers make it easy to travel and make the best of the valuable time you have allocated for the journey. The arrangement is much easier to follow, and the planning won’t be a problem to implement and you can focus all your energy in exploring and discovering the wonders you’ve never seen before for an experience of a lifetime. At ABC & EBC Travels, we have a group of limited personnel, just enough to provide you with the individual feel of discovering a place independently, but large enough to give you a feel of social convenience. Normally, group size varies depending on the place and means we’re travelling by, but the average size of a group is about 10 people. Through the years of experience we’ve learned that this is the best number to let you connect with people you meet without you feeling like you’re just another member of the group.
We’ve put our years of experience and knowledge into the equipment, accommodation and operations and management of the trek. So you can leave all your hours of tedious thinking and planning when you can leave it to us, who lives and understands your style of travel. The smaller group you are the more united you stand, the less different opinions makes it easier to follow the plan and this creates a strong bond of a family amongst those who are travelling together.
