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 and Porters . Knowing the difference between a guide and a porter-guide is important It’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.

Note: Guide/Porter prices are the same if you are 1 person or 2 0r 3 people ( 2 Max ) – so if you are 1 you pay the price per day below – if you are 3 you can divide it by 3 – Easy and Cheap!All prices are in dollars .
The fixed day price rate includes the Guide salary, their food and their accommodation insurance and Trekking gear . The Guide transportation is extra as quoted ( the same applies to Porters ). If you want the guide to organise air or bus tickets and do things in Kathmandu pre-departure then it will cost you another day or two in his/her salary depending on what you need doing.
