Trekking  is one of the exciting activity in Nepal that defines the real meaning of adventure. The varied topography, geography, beautiful views and trekking routes makes it premier trekking destination in the world. And you must have been traveling, hiking or trekking independently. It sounds great and surely lightens your pocket but certain percent of risks always comes along with it. The decision of traveling with guide or not also varies with the destination and the level of difficulty involved.

While hiking around Nepal himalayas especially at high altitudes around Everest base camp, Annapurna circuit, Langtang region, it is highly recommended to go through governmentally recognized professional trekking company rather than going solo or with friends. The professional guides will not only explain about the history, mystery and cultural ethnicity of local places, they will also have better knowledge about your fitness levels, acclimatizing tips, nearby health centers and good local connections for booking better accommodation, restaurants etc in the Himalayan areas. Especially during main trekking seasons getting cheap and reliable hotels is a big hassle and without trekking guides it gets even tougher. Actually you will be getting more than what you paid for. I mean the security and safety on remote Himalayan areas. You must be aware that many trekkers are gone missing in these areas. There are many alternative routes and ways in the mountains, in low seasons the risk of getting lost gets even higher. Also while traveling through the some passes the risks of ice dipping can be avoided by the guides as they have more knowledge regarding such spots. They explain the dos and don’ts and make sure you are 100% safe.
