Is trekking for me?

Why is a guide necessarily? I’ve trekked/hiked/camped before – can’t I guide myself?
While it is not a legal requirement, we cannot overstate the importance of trekking with a
licensed, experienced guide. You’ll be traveling through wilderness, remote countryside, and
high elevations – from an aspect of pure safety, it is highly dangerous to go it alone. Additionally,
very few locals in Himalayan villages speak English. Should you get lost (and, with many paths
crossing through many, many villages, this is more a likelihood than a possibility), it would be
difficult to communicate directions or obtain food and shelter. Additionally, our guides are
experts in Himalayan treks with highly trekking experience. No matter how confident you feel in
your skills or knowledge, it is almost certain that we can help enhance your experience.
