Nepal's natural paradise, Himalayan scenery, high peaks, and hidden valley makes adventure activities the main tourist product of the Himalayan kingdom of Nepal. Most travelers visiting Nepal join on trekking and climbing trips on mountain valleys to high Himalayan peaks; thus, without any doubt, trekking and climbing expedition is the main tourist adventure activities that allure adventurers around the globe.

Trekking and climbing take place on remote and high lands in the Himalayas; thus, having proper insurance is necessary while venturing into the Himalayas. More than 2000 registered trekking companies are operating currently, and many other unregistered, illegal persons and firms offer the same services. Some of these offer a cheap/low cost for such a package and somehow indirectly get the benefit.

Nepal's government recently formed a committee to investigate the misuse of rescue helicopters on adventure tours in Nepal. The initial report claimed some of the top-rated trekking companies in trip advisor and some big International company sub-contractor trekking companies were also involved in such scams. Some of the claims are a file on the tour departure in which trekkers complained that they were made sick by their guide and tour company. Hence, the trekkers must take the rescue helicopter in cash tour operators, and helicopter companies work for the mutual benefice.

Trekkers and climbers must be careful in choosing their tour companies by analyzing their records and traveler reviews. Be aware of fake or paid reviews. We need to be realistic to look for the best and most reasonable trip cost base of the service and facilities getting. Thus, too low a cost means there might be an indirect way to manipulate the trip.
