About Everest Base Camp Service Based Trekking

As an alternative to our Full Service treks, Annapurna Foothills Treks offers you Customized Service packages which allow you to reduce services (and costs) that you feel you don’t need. A full service package takes care of everything from the time of your arrival in Nepal, and every step of the way until your departure. A full service package includes all your meals and accommodation as well as guide and porter services.

A customized service package means that you pay for your food yourself for the entire trip. Annapurna Foothills Treks will provide you a guide, porter-guide and/or porter (according to your requirements). You decide what type of supporting staff you require during your trek (a professional guide, porter-guide and/or porter,). For instance: you might choose to go with a porter-guide who is less qualified and therefore less expensive. You pay a daily rate for the services of the support staff you hire. That rate includes the employee’s daily wage, insurance, transportation, and equipment.

Three nights in Kathmadnu at Hotel Holy Himalaya or similar (Bed and Breakfast basis) and accommodation at teahouses will be included in your trip cost.  

Be aware that some companies may offer cheaper rates by unfair means. Annapurna Foothills Treks ensures that guides, porter-guides and porters get fair pay for their seasonal work and are properly insured.

Guides at Annapurna Foothills can communicate fluently in English. Our guides are experienced and dedicated towards their job. They not only show the trail but they are able to tell you many things about the mountains, the culture, the history and the religions of Nepal as well.. They are your link to the local people. Your guide knows how to organize a rescue and is trained in First Aid and AMS. In case of emergency, your guide will run for help even in the middle of the night. NOTE: Guides will not carry any of your luggage.

Porter-Guides (guide trainee) will help carry luggage of two clients up to 25 kgs. Annapurna Foothills Treks porter- guides speak enough English to understand your interests and needs. Porter-guides are familiar with the trail. They are friendly and trustworthy and will do their best to share their knowledge of the mountains and facilitate communication with the local people. They are not trained in First Aid or AMS, but will do their best to help you in case of an emergency.

Porters carry luggage of two clients maximum. Porters don’t speak much English but they are helpful and sincere. Porters are mostly strong people from mountain villages who are used to carrying heavy loads. The lodge owners often give them cheap accommodation in a shed or in the dining room, so that they can save their earnings.

For safety reasons, Annapurna Foothills Treks highly recommends hiring a guide or at least porter - guide for trekking in the remote parts of Nepal. Having a qualified guide and a porter at your side is the best way to ensure your safety. Their local knowledge is invaluable. They will do everything from recommending the best places to stay and eat, to assisting you in case of accident or emergency. They will find an alternate route if the trails are blocked by snow or landslides.
