    Default looking for a guide

    Hei all helpful fellow travellers!

    We are planning to go for a short Poon Hill trek with my friend in the end of september this year. First time in Nepal, mid 30s, both female, fitness level -moderate.

    a) Would we need a guide?

    b) I have learned from other posts that guides can add a lot to the experience with their cultural knowledge.

    c) Is there anyone you would recommend?
    - we are looking for someone who would be willing to bother to join us for such a short trip, who would be familiar with this area and have a good sense of humour to put up with us and add to the experience.

    Our concerns are - would the praised guides be rather interested in guiding longer and more difficult treks ?

    All suggestions and recomendations are very welcome!

    re: Ngima Dorjee Lama

    Hi Meeri,

    Here's what I wrote previously about Dorjee:

    I've known Dorjee since I met him on the Annapurna Circuit in 2002. He was guiding an Australian couple. We spent much time together (as often happens on the AC) and i was impressed with him as a guide and friend. Subsequently, I recommended him as a guide for several friends, and he again proved excellent (and they are now also recommending him to their friends).

    I visit Nepal and trek regularly (7 tiimes so far) and have observed many guides (many very good; some terrible). Dorjee is among the best.

    Learn about Dorjee on his company's website (he IS the company...):

    Dorjee can be contacted by email: lamand@ccslnp.com OR letsgonepalnow@gmail.com

    PM me if you have questions.

    Hi there,

    you don't NEED a guide - you can do it alone - but it is
    much more convenient to go with guide (and porter) and not so
    expensive; my experience is very positive, and my guide was really
    fun to go with. If you want contact him - his name is Bashu
    bashuac@gmail.com. And I think every guide will take any trek if he
    is free (end of Seprember isn't still peak of the season).
    If you feel better going in female company,there is an all-women agency
    "Three sisters"; I didn't use them (I was with my wife ) but read a lot
    of recommendations and have seen them on the trek, very nice girls.

    Anyway, have fun!
