If you want to do budget treks in Nepal, we highly recommend hiring a guide, Porter, or at least one porter cum Guide for your Trekking in Nepal. There are many trekking agencies and numerous guides and porters, but you should check before choosing the best guide and porter for your important holiday. 

The person who is already known about a place or a thing and shares the information he has about the place or thing with others to improve travel arrangements is a guide. The major qualities of a trekking guide are the study of various subjects as well as effective communication skills, knowledge about many attractions of the places, routes to the destination, friendliness, and good coordination skill. guides visit a single place several times, they are more experienced in handling various scenarios and facing difficult situations that may arise along the way. For example, peculiar social laws that you might not be aware of could have created a problem if you have done anything improper.

A guide can show you places you never knew existed, educate you on things you never knew were possible, and most significantly, he or she can give you a trek of the most amazing places you never dreamed would be so much fun. Detailed information about a place, its nature, culture, people, resources, foods, accommodations, and costs are the benefits that can be obtained from a guide. Additionally, a guide also has a solid relationship with the local people, hotels, and restaurants which makes it easier for them to manage things with them and settle any kinds of disputes that may arise during the trek.

A guide can provide you with more information in an hour than the internet in days. The main roles or the purpose of the trek guides are to ensure that their clients are safe and secure, to give them information about the location, and to direct them in the right direction. Therefore, one should hire a trekking guide during his/her trek mainly to assure safety and the most out of it. Consequently, the importance of a trekking guide is colossal, and hiring a trekking guide for a trip is worth it. Moreover, there are many trekking routes where there are no roads for automobiles to use and we have to carry our stuff.
