After contacting 3 agencies, we went with Eastern Light Treks in Pokhara. They were, frankly, most responsive and direct in their correspondence and I got positive feedback from someone I trusted on TripAdvisor.

I cannot share the INR estimates with you as we are not booking an all-inclusive package type trek but buying specific services (TIMS, ACAP, porter on per day basis). Our estimates are in USD and frankly we are not as cost constrained travelers. In other words, we could find a lower price for porter if we looked but think the prices we got were fair and reasonable and did not argue. You should look for TAAN certified agencies for a number of reasons, including liability in case of an accident.

You may contact two IM'ers - soumya_iiitc, Sourav Roy - who had separately contacted me via PM with offers of services relating to the trek. We were not interested but I think both were based out of Calcutta and it might be worth checking with them.

Thanks for your feedback. I have already contracted with Eastern Light Treks, but yet not received quote from their end. Any way initial mail got from Dev is really straight forward and satisfactory, looking forward for their quotation. As I told we are regular trekker and traveler I have to manage cost part very consciously. I use to travel with my family two times in a year and with fellow trekker or friends two times in a year. All travel and trek Himalaya based only. So Plan & Budget both are very important to me.

All the best.
