Trekking in Nepal Without a Guide or with Company?

Trekking in Nepal means travelling to Nepal, meeting new people, ascending and descending through forest for many days far from the city area, no hospitals, but the need of hospitality, no organized foods and many other thrills. If you plan to go for solo trekking, you might miss this thrill because there is a chance to lose the path, encounter wild animals, fall ill, not get appropriate food and accommodation. Hence, to avoid these risks, why do not you hire a local trekking company in Nepal that looks after you as a family, guide you as a friend ?

If you trek through a local company here in Nepal, you will be communicating with the members of the company in advance. They will tell you about Nepal, about the trek, about the things you need to bring, and not need to bring, suggest you what to do, what not to do. They will pick you up at the airport, accommodate you in a nice hotel, arrange your trip, they will provide you a seasoned guide who can understand your language and your temperament and can also do conversation with you in a language you are familiar with. Overall you will have a wonderful, safe and enjoyable trekking.
Some of the important benefits of trekking through an experienced company can be as follows:
• You will be safe
Trekking through a company is like hiring them for your safety and security. You will have professional people looking after you during the whole trek.
• You will get the correct information
Your main confusion while going for any trip is usually what to take with you, how would the weather be, what kind of preparation you should make and so on. If you hire a company then you will get the correct information about the weather, what you need to take, what kind of cloths is preferable. They will also provide you other information you may need beforehand.
• You will get emergency support
You will be walking in the Himalaya, far from city area, no hospitals. If you are trekking alone and you became ill, then what would you do? But if you go through a company then the guide will immediately inform the company about your illness and you will get help as soon as possible. The guide would be a lifesaving friend for you when you are travelling with a company.
• No hassle for obtaining Government Permits
The company you hire will be familiar with the Government permits that are needed while entering some trekking areas. You can just relax and trek as these permits will be obtained by the company themselves.
• You will understand the local culture
One of the interesting fact about trekking in Nepalese Himalaya is that you will get to know the culture of people living there, especially Sherpas, Gurung, Thakali. If you trek through a company then the company’s guide will explain you about the local culture, tradition. He will make you interact with the local people and explain you about their importance.
• You don’t need to worry about food and accommodation
The company guide will accommodate you in reasonable hotel or lodge that has been pre-booked. During the high trekking season, trekkers won’t get room in the hotel or teahouse without prior booking. He will take you to the best place where you can get the food you prefer. You can enjoy the trek without any tension of food you eat and place you sleep.

Just remember that you are the source of a company’s potential clients. The company will provide value for money service to you because every penny that you spend is counted as valuable for the company. Your satisfaction is their main concern. They are in a hope that if you are satisfied with their service then you may refer the company’s name to your other friends interested in the same kind of trip in future. Hence, they will do their best for making your trekking a wonderful experience.

  1. Thank you Amigo team for giving me an opportunity to drop my comments.

    I had completed my trek with guide and found huge difference on experiencing the culture and religion. Guide tells you everything relates its country from the culture to the politics. Also guide serves you a food at the lodge and always keep his eyes on to ensure food is in time, to make sure that it is well cooked and boiled enough. You do not want to get sick on the mountain. Fresh fruits after the trek was an amazing. Other people were asking me if it has on the menu. But it was not on the menu, Trekking company officially provided ( carried all the way from Pokhara). Other trekkers were jealous. I always felt safe as i was single female traveler.

    You have lots of benefit having guide through a company like Amigo Treks & Expedition P Ltd. So if you are thinking to do it solo please think of it again and decide. You will win to have a guide from Amigo team. I love these guys and happy to use them in future for my Everest trek.
