Recently, Trekking has been one of the revenues earning activity of Nepal. It can be done either as a Guide Trek or independent Trek depending on the level and budget available. It is one’s personal decision to make.
Independent Trek refers to the trek where you hire a guide without consulting to any agencies. It seems to be easy and at the same time difficult too. Easy in the sense that you chose your guide independently according to your budget and can plan your trip accordingly. Similarly, it can be difficult as you have to find a guide who is trustworthy and suitably equipped for trekking and ensures your safety. Also, Tourists are not allowed to hire a guide directly in Nepal. It is against the rule.
Guide Trek refers to the trek where you hire a guide who is legally organized through TAAN (Trekking Agencies Association of Nepal). Such kind of hiring is done if you trek through the help of registered agencies in Nepal. The agencies will be responsible for almost all your expenses expect some when you are in the Trek. Costs excluded are visa fee, Sightseeing entry fees, Personal expenses, Travel Insurance, trekking gears, Tips for tour/ trekking staffs and driver, and so forth.
In conclusion, Guide Trek superior to independent because it is safe and legal. Also, you do not have to worry about the accommodation and all. You can even change the Guide if you are doing Guide Trek.
