  • 10. DO I REALLY NEED A TREKKING GUIDE FOR THIS TREK ?

    Yes, a guide is required for your safety and security while on the trek. And if you want to make your trip memorable by learning a lot about the trekking region of Nepal, this is the place to be. A professional guide is essential for any trek in Nepal. Your guide will not only show you the walking trail during the trek, but he will also manage the accommodation ahead of time, recommend the best restaurants, and eat organic and hygienic food in the mountains. Which allows you to finish your trip without worrying about food? Most of the time, your guide will walk alongside you, and if you need them, you can ask them any questions about the culture, religions, nature, and landscapes of the area where you are. In addition, the guide will assist you in communicating with the locals. The majority of the locals do not speak your language. Another reason why having a guide is important is that if we get sick in the mountains, such as altitude sickness, stomach sickness, or injury from a ruck fall from the mountain, or if you fall somewhere in the stone and break your ankle or any part of your buddy, how will we be safe? If you have a guide with you in this situation, he or she will undoubtedly assist you in getting to a safe location quickly. So we strongly advise all trekkers to any region of Nepal to go with a guide, who will play a key role in making your trip in Nepal a success. You are not only hiring a guide for your trip to Nepal, but you are also helping him or her with economic support. For example, one guide (man) works at a house for a whole family who has to take care of their food, education, health, and all basic expenses, so your visit to Nepal is helping local people a lot and giving a big opportunity to work and protect his or her family and life from his or job.
