Hiring Trekking  guide in Nepal

Your guide to hiring a guide for trekking in Nepal Before I even arrived in Nepal I was worried about both trekking and finding the right guide.t's not easy to know what to expect when you arrive in Nepal, or even from home when planning a trek.From online tour companies claiming the world to confusing forums there is a lot of information out there. This page will help you with answers to the questions I had before arriving. problems could  be the following:

you were alone, where to start?  Where to go on the trek?  Who to Believe? The cost hiring guide?How to choose the right guide? A Guide or a Porter?  As a woman, is it safe? When to hire a guide? »Trekking with the guide? Where to go on a trek in Nepal? 

This was easier to decide once  you have got to Nepal. After one or two sit downs with agencies and asking them to suggest places based on my time frame I had a better idea. Also some good online photo galleries showed me what to expect. I chose the Annapurna Circuit (and have since been to EBC along with many more treks).

How to choose the right guide in Nepal? 

Interview at least 3 guides, whether they be independents or from an agency. Remember, you will be with this person from anywhere between 3 - 25 days! Suggested questions to ask and confirm:

(1) Agree on the  trekking route.

(2) Agree on the price. Valley leading to the Annapurna Base Camp Trail

(3) Agree on the need for porters and guide?

(4) Ask how many times the guide has done the trek? 

(5) Do they have a family? What do they do aside from Guiding - in other words try to get to know them a bit better personally.

(6) Agree about who pays for what en route?

(7) Confirm they are registered guides and that they are insured (they will have certificates to prove this)

. (8) Ask them if they will be drinking alcohol on the trek (in other words find out if this could be an issue).

(9) Confirm that your guide will be paying for his own food and accommodation.

(10) Reconfirm the finances.

(11) Ask yourself if are you totally happy and comfortable with the guide?

Get with the times and go virtual! 

The days of being afraid of booking ahead and not knowing who your guide is until you arrive are over. There's widespread internet in Nepal and nearly all trekking agencies and guides have smartphones.

It means you should and can (with good companies) be able to meet and talk with your guide months ahead of your trek! It means knowing how good they are at speaking your language. What their mannerisms are like. And, how you get on together.

It's not a question of being best friends, it's literally about getting to meet the person you are hiring beforehand. Keep in mind that when emailing or messaging a local trekking guide their English grammar may not be so great. But in person or rather over video using Skype, WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger you can talk directly with them in English.

Trekking guides are now mandatory in Nepal In March 2023 Nepal Tourism Board enacted an old law that required trekkers to now have a mandatory trekking guide. This includes single people, couples, groups, mountain bikers etc.

The enactment of this law has been controversial. Local hotels, restaurants, and businesses are all losing out to package tours. Moreover, local guides must now be registered to a trekking company. So no more independent freelance guides either. Need help finding a trekking guide

Do I need Guide or a Porter in Nepal?

You need a fully qualified trekking guide or porter-guide that is registered with a trekking agency. A porter does not count as a guide and it is illegal to use a porter aas a guide in Nepal.  First the difference:

(1) A guide should speak good English and be able to tell you about the places you pass though. They can arrange accommodation and negotiate with tea houses and eateries for you. A trekking guide does not carry your equipment.

(2) A porter carries your equipment for you and no more (20kg max). They don't often speak any English. Most can carry two backpacks that they will strap together. But it's very important you do not take advantage of the porter. They are usually very proud people and will attempt to carry things that are just too heavy. Which is not good.

(3) There are porter-guides too. A trainee guide if you will. They have been porters that have completed their guide training but may still be working on their English or building their hours up on the trekking routes.

They can carry some of your gear but not as much as a full porter. (Note) I would recommend leeaving heavy bags at your hotel rather than hiring a porter specifically for carrying things you will not need on the trek. That said if you plan on carrying camera equipment such as SLR's and tripods having a porter can be a great help to free you up.

As a woman, is it safe to trek alone in Nepal with a guide?

It's important that you feel comfortable with your guide. The majority of guides are male. However there are some agencies with female only guides and porters that you might want to consider if you are not comfortable with a male guide.  However these guides are much more expensive and in recent years even when booked seem to be unavailable once you actually arrive in Nepal.

Do take care. On all treks there are registration stops and your details are logged. Again the best advice I can give is go with a recommended guide who has good references. You may also want to do the following for piece of mind: Let your friends and family know your itinerary Buy a sim card with data to stay in touch with people (it won't work everywhere,but it can help

When to hire a guide? Early! If you want a good guide then understand they book out quickly. Post pandemic there is a shortage of good guides in Nepal as many had to take up secure jobs elsewhere. Some people book a guide one year in advance.

This is good in the sense that they are guaranteed a good guide and don't have to worry about it again. At the bare minimum I would advise booking a guide once you have your flights booked - that way you'll know exactly how many days you will be in Nepal (don't forget to add days for domestic flight delays from places like Lukla - add 2 days back up if possible).

The biggest issues come about when trekkers leave it until the last minute. Not only are guides booked out, which raises the price of finding one, but the quality goes down too along with difficulty in securing local transport.

All those ads for treks and guides don't tell you about this, but it's clear as day to everyone in Nepal. Moral of the story? Book early, it will save you money and secure you a good guide for your trek. Leave it to the last minute and you run the risk of a less experienced guide at a higher price.
