Why does it need to hire a Trekking Guide?
To trek any route of Nepal, it is advised to hire an 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 on every route used by local people. If you hire a guide there will not be any confusion about finding out the proper route.
Lots of people think that the guide’s 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 with 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 a high-altitude journey. In some treks, 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. In severe cases, you need to evacuate by chopper to Kathmandu immediately. So, in such an emergency situation, if you have a guide he will handle everything well and you will be on the safe side.
Why does it need to hire a porter?
In the case of a porter, if you can carry your all backpacks/ luggage during the entire trek, it is optional. However, it should be memorized that the trekking journey is more days of hiking. Every day you need to walk around 6 hours and some days more than 6 hours also. On long days of high land hiking if you do not have a porter, you may feel fatigued and sometimes you may not complete your trip. Thus, for a comfortable trekking holiday, a porter is also advised to hire.
