Local Guide and porter hiring

Nepal alternative treks is promoting and supporting local people for sustainable tourism development. We have recently contracted with local guides and porters from different trekking starting points. It is benefits for both trekkers and local people. Trekkers won’t have to pay any air or land transportation from/to the trekking starting and ending point as well as expenses during the travel. Just compensate them while they really work for you ! There are many trekking destinations which start from 1 to 2 days after traveling from Kathmandu. So, save the traveling cost of guide and porters. Our local guides are government registered license holder, first aid trained, fluent English and Local language speaking, informative about destination and general knowledge of Nepal, Knowledgeable of local culture, local people, local tradition, religion, culture and people’s life style.

As main problem may happen for trekkers of taking guide and porters from local place, stolen trekker’s valuable things, leaving on half way, bargaining of wages in mid way, arguing tips, no equipments, no medical and accidental insurance, we ensure that our guides and porters are fully trustable and honesty. They are well paid, well equipped, medical and accidental insurance which covers Helicopter rescue, no bargaining of wages and not begging tips (not necessary only highly suggested). We ensure our guides and porters to assist you whole trek with warm Nepali hospitality and not arguing in unnecessary issues. We keep guide license and citizenship of our staff with us at our office.
