Why does it need to hire a Trekking Guide?

To trek in any route of Nepal, it is advised to hire experienced trekking guide. It is a fact that if you have a guide, your trekking will obviously become more comfortable, secure and informative. Trekking in Nepal without a guide is also possible. But if you trek without a guide, you may be confused to find out the exact trail since there are many side trails in every route used by local people. If you hire a guide there will not be any confusion of finding out the proper route.

Lots of people think that the guide job is only to show you the right trail. Yes, showing the trail is his major duty. But apart from that, the guide provides you all the major information about the Himalayas, villages, local lifestyle, environment, flora and fauna. Our trekking guides all are very sincere in their duties and always do their best to make your trip more memorable and lifetime.

Further, trekking in Nepal is the high altitude journey. In some trek, the trekker needs to walk up to 5500 meters from sea level. So, in High land, sometime you may face altitude sickness. Altitude sickness should be properly handled on time. At severely case, you need to immediately evacuate by chopper to Kathmandu. So, in such an emergency situation, if you have a guide he will handle everything well and you will be in the safe side.

Why does it need to hire a porter?

In the case of porter, if you can carry your all the backpack/ luggage during the entire trek, it is optional. However, it should be memorized that trekking journey is more days hiking. Every day you need to walk around 6 hours and some days more than 6 hours also. In long days high land hiking if you do not have porter, you may feel quickly fatigued and sometime you may not complete your trip. Thus, for the comfortable trekking holiday, porter is also advised to hire.
