    Rishi,

    I agree, "do not trek alone"... but cannot agree with your suggestion one needs to have a guide/porter for the main treks. This is simply not true.

    The Taiwanese trekkers in the story you link to were not trekking alone. There were two of them. Importantly, they were trekking in an area not frequented by many trekkers (ie not a main trek) and got lost when it snowed. Tragically, one died. Probably, in their case, a guide would have been important.

    But guides/porters are not "required" for main trails (AC, ABC, Poon Hill, Langtang, EBC, Gokyo).
