Dear Trekkers Namaste! Welcome to Beauty Nepal Adventure.
Beauty Nepal Adventure is a humble trekking and mountaineering company owned and established on 28 August 2008 and run solely by guides and porters.All the staff contribute in their own way and the income is shared directly and equally.The long term aim of the company is to ensure that deserving guides and porters and staff from the hills are not deprived of their benefits and the fair amount of payment by unscrupulous middle men and are not left to the mercy of some uncaring trekkers(who’ve no idea of the harsh reality of the plight of guides and porters) and that no advantages is being taken of them.
The primary object of this company is to make sure that the arrangement works dually.Your safety,well being and pleasure comes first;and your kindness in providing employment to the porters,guides and other support staff contribute directly in generating monetary support to their families and their surrounding hills.We work carefully to filter out the needy men,women and boys and girls of the village in selecting the staff.This is to acertain that the money that is paid to them is put into good use and not wasted on trifle things like alcohol,gambling, etc..Each year,just before the trekking season starts,we make a special scouting trip to the hills in the west and east of Nepal,away from the beaten tracks –where the winds of development and modernization hasn’t yet blown.We select a few needy and deserving ones on the basis of their being less privileged (finiancally and other wise),their qualities of integrity,cheerfulness ,honesty and friendliness.Each year after the trekking seasons we revisit the families,just to check out on their well being and keep tabs on other things.Some staff work for long years,while others have to be replaced to make way for the deserving ones.
We train our staff.They start from the bottom rung of the ladder:working as porters,and learning the ropes till in a few years they make full fledged Gurkhas(sherpas), trekking cooks,guides or sirdars(head of the trekking outfit in the hills or mountains).A few will have had formal education,a few will just have learnt the alphabet when they start.No matter what their educational back ground,their appetite for learning new skills and their desire to get to travel to far away places in Nepal other than their own,their sense of humor, and cheerfulness when the going gets tough is pretty catching and make them perfect trekking companions with whom to trek again and again the ‘next time’.And they also learn a lot from you and will have something to pass on to other hillfolks.A good way to contribute to ‘development in the hills’.
Though the staff are insured by TAAN against accidents,trekkers have a moral obligation to see that they are properly fed, equipped,clothed.No matter how long the trek is,most staff seldom trek for more than 25 days of the 3 month season.The money that is paid to them has to be stretched a long way before the next trekking season.
