While visiting Nepal, hiring trekking guides is almost mandatory for everyone. When you hire one, your trip will be more informative and memorable, you will get lots of knowledge about country.

But trekking guide can play big role to make your trekking They will provide information about the trekking destination along with its surroundings. Similarly, if any problems will arise during the trekking, then the guides will solve it easily and it will be rather difficult for the trekkers themselves to solve them.

Is there anything else I should know?
Don't drink the tap water, bring toilet paper as most places do not have toilet paper, power outages are common (but most hotels are equppied with back up generators), don't expect too much from the wifi hotspots, taxis are quickest and easiest option, take note of locals who go up to you and start explaining about the history etc. - cut them off and ask them how much their tour would cost.
