Private, first-class transportation to/from treks

Posted by Andy on Tuesday, September 7, 2010

Many Nepal trekking companies, whether small local agencies or contractors to a large international company, do not provide high quality, private transportation to and from their trekking destinations. Often trekkers are placed on cramped local buses (or shared cars) that often break down and are always extremely uncomfortable and slow.

ITrekNepal always uses spacious, comfortable (Greenline) tourist buses wherever they are available. Whenever required we also use private 4WD vehicles for transport over rough roads. Guests of iTrekNepal immediately notice how much more comfortable and reliable this is when they see the alternative in Nepal.

Domestic Flights

For airline transportation iTrekNepal uses Yeti Airlines whenever possible. Based on reputation and customer feedback, Yeti has the most modern, comfortable planes and keeps the most reliably on-time schedule. They also operate the Everest view sightseeing flight (“Everest Express”) featured in our Best of Nepal Treks. For those who take the Classic trek option, flights to and from your trekking destination are included.

Airport VIP Service

For visitors to Nepal, getting through airport immigration and baggage claim can be a very confusing experience. ITrekNepal offers a unique service for our guests to help you navigate quickly and smoothly through the maze of Kathmandu International Airport upon your arrival.
An ITrekNepal representative will meet you shortly after you exit your plane and enter the terminal, before you start the immigration process. He will make sure you are in the right place, have the right documents available and answer any questions you might have. While you wait to get your immigration documents finalized he will locate your baggage and have this ready for you as you clear immigration. He will then escort you through customs and to your awaiting ITrekNepal guide, driver and vehicle for the short drive to your hotel.
Our guests who have received this service are amazed and pleased at how easy and comfortable they feel having a local representative meet and assist them right off the plane. Other travelers who are left to fend for themselves wonder how our guests merit such special treatment.
At the end of your trip, an ITrekNepal representative will also be there with you to assist with your airline check-in and emigration procedures, escorting you through to the final security clearance.
From the moment of your arrival until your final departure, ITrekNepal will be there to insure that you have a comfortable, anxiety-free experience.
ITrekNepal’s airport VIP service is provided for all guests who have selected the Classic trek option, and is available for a modest fee for our standard option guests.
