They don’t only show your trekking path where to go and what we going to see and explore, they also provide you the life of local people, their unique culture, Religious tolerances, and your safety as it is really important in a different country and Himalayas.
There are thousands of trekking and travel agency in Nepal, similarly trekking and hiking guides but what kind of guide that you should take with you or your precious Himalayan trip is the most important hence, there are few fact and realities of Trekking and hiking guides In Nepal.
Everest trekking guide:
Trekking is like synonyms in the case of Nepal as it has so many high mountains and other natural phenomena including world’s tallest mountain Everest(8,848m). As you know that it is the highest mountain in the world and lies in Northeast of Nepal. When peoples think about trekking and hiking in Nepal then they have already in their mind oh…a country of Everest this all phenomenon shows that The Everest region trekking is the most popular, busy, adventure, beauty and undesirable trekking route in Nepal. The Everest region trek does not mean that it is Everest base camp trekking only there are more than 10 Different alternative trekking routes among them the Everest base camp trekking-12 days, Gokyo valley trekking-10 days, 3 high pass trekking 20 Days and Chola pass trek via Gokyo are the most popular and leading trekking routes in Khumbu Everest region.
The Everest region trekking itself is strenuous as it is high altitude area trek this is why you should have your professional guide who can help you always and can talk easily in case if you have any problem. Trekking region in Everest itself is quite challenging but besides that, there are so many unique Sherpa, Tibetan, rai and Tamang culture that you can easily explore every day during Everest region trek until 3800 meters. Trekking guide of Everest needs to know so many things besides the Himalayas as they so many unseen, unique and unbelievable beauties. The Everest region trekking guide should keep such things in his mind while he is guiding in Everest region:
- A short history of Tenzing and Sir Edmond Hillary Airport,
- Short knowledge About Lukla and Namche,
- Local life, sherpa, and Climbers,
- Tibetan culture, Buddhist monuments, and colors,
- Short info about Tyangboche monastery,
- Knowledge about Khumbu glacier, icefall and Everest base camp,
- Name of mountains, villages & check posts,
- Knowledge of basic medicines, First Aid treatments, and Mountain altitude sickness,
- Need to be honest helpful and polite other everybody,
The Everest region is a high altitude area trekking that is the region you should get experienced guide either you take a freelance guide or through the trekking agency you better to talk with him before you fly into Lukla. The Everest region trek is one of the busiest trekking route especially in Oct and Nov. if you are planning to go to Everest region trek in those months you then relatively enjoy less because there will be thousands of people fly in to Lukla and also local guide and porters for your trip that means it will be so crowded and lack of accommodation some time if you are traveling in a small group especially. My Everest region trekking experience says if you are able to manage your trip in early Sep and early Dec is the best time now to skip the overcrowd and easy excess of Tea house Accommodations and also you can interact with locals and guide any time you want, similarly your walking pace need to be very slow and same speed that will control your oxygen level in your body and also you don’t get tired very quickly however, in this trekking region you should keep you warm body everyday, eat fresh food, drink 3 to 4 ltr a day, walk with group or guides, share everything with your leaders guide, porters who can help you any time if you share your problems, try to walk from hillside while animals passing you, generally if you follow these instructions while you are trekking in Everest trekking region then your trek will be fun, safe and unforgettable.
Annapurna trekking guide
The Annapurna trekking is another popular beautiful trekking in Nepal where hundreds of people get in and out as it is the truly stunning place to explore the Snowcap peaks, culture and remote life of local people. Annapurna is a big area trek located in Annapurna conservation area(ACAP) Which is protected area trekking. There are two options to go to Annapurna trekking driving or flying, the western side of Annapurna trekking begins from Pokhara but the most popular trek the Annapurna round trekking(Annapurna circuit trekking) begins from Besisahar which is like halfway to Pokhara in the north side from the highway.
There are so many short, long, easy, adventure, budget, and luxuries trekking routes around Annapurna trekking, among them the few trekking routes are really busy but such a magical trekking and fun. The Ghorepani poon hill, Annapurna circuit is the most visited trekking where you get to see the stunning view of Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and other so many peaks including Local structures and culture. The major attractions of this trekking region are the magnificent sunrise view from poon hill and admirable view of Thorangla pass(5420m), beside these two major facts you will have so many different sceneries, flora, fauna and warm welcoming of locals where ever tea house you stay during Annapurna trekking. The trek basically provides you:

Annapurna is relatively closest trekking route from Kathmandu and difficult ways it is moderate trekking route where simply fit travelers can go and enjoy as there so many alternative trekking paths that you can choose according to your time, budget, and desire.
Annapurna trekking guide should be equally professional like Everest trekking guide as it is important because even in Annapurna trekking region there are few trails where you may get mountain sickness that is why your Annapurna trekking guide should be smart, polite, the good speaker in particular languages and caring. The Annapurna region is the culturally rich area where you can see so many different ethnicities and peoples hence, you better to ask anything you have confusion with your guide, leader or porters. Your Guide needs to be also license holder and experienced especially if you are trekking over Thorangla, Dhaulagiri base camp, And some passes through the mountains.
Manaslu trekking guide:
The Manaslu trekking is formally launched since 1992 but when the locals from Manaslu region built some tea house along this trekking path than since 2009 the popularity of this region is increased as it is very remote far less crowded than other Trekking route in Nepal such as Everest trek, Anapurna trek, Langtang trek and so on….however, the Manaslu trekking provides you an immense opportunity for travelers to experience the remote life of locals, their own unique culture, Daily life, stunning landscapes, rivers and Wonderful vast Himalayan terrain of Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, and Annapurna region.
No doubt it is one of the best classic treks but you should get a professional mountain guide for your safety, for your comfort and for all perspective is the best way to have guide, especially when there is peak season Oct & Nov , you will hardly get private Accommodation so if yo are hiking/trekking with professional guide he knows all settlements and also the owner his number and all, that means you will have your accommodation every day if you have a smart guide with you.

While you are in Langtang trek you can have Breakfast, lunch & Dining from the tea house and if you are in a group you might not get chance to choose food from menu otherwise you can choose food whatever you want from the menu as they have so many items of foods. We suggest you have enough water, foods and enough sleep while you are on the trek but try not to eat meet item foods as they store for a long time.
Fitness level for Langtang trekking:
It is one of the best treks near Kathmandu relatively and it is moderate trekking trails for passionate trekkers who can walk 4 to 7 hours a day. If you are simply fit and some exercise before you trek then you can make this trip very easily as it is not so high altitude area trek and the trails also go through the forest and green lush paradise valley. What you need for the trek is your self-confidence, positive attitudes, and simple fitness. If you have prior trekking experience that is absolutely better but you don’t need any technical training or skills to complete this trek. We highly recommend you not to do this trek if you have any disease like very high blood pressure, heart disease, Lung disease etc. if you have nay diseases like above you better to consult with our team safe holiday adventure or with your crosspoint before your trek.
