Nepal Professional Mountain Guides offer a high quality trekking guide service in Nepal. We specialise in bespoke and ‘off the beaten path’ treks for individuals and smaller groups. Even if it is to a well known destination we will guide you on a little known route.
Why should you choose us out of all the trekking companies operating in Nepal?
The reasons are that we are independent professional guides. What you pay goes directly into our hands. That way we get a fair wage and you get a good deal. You get a happy, hard working team and you get to put something back into the local people. Think of it as a ‘Fair Trade’ system.
Hiring a Nepal Professional Mountain Guide gives you a high standard of guiding and local knowledge. For us client safety is the primary concern. They will make sure that you are using the correct equipment, eating the right food, drinking the correct amount of fluid. Your guide will continually assess you for signs of altitude sickness even going to the point of insisting that you go slower in order to acclimatise better. They will not let you over extend yourself. They will take your arm if they judge that you might fall. If you get ill (and lets face it there are lots of bugs around) they’ll take care of you.
Our guides brings a wealth of local knowledge. They will show you aspects of the terrain that you’re trekking through whether it be wildlife or the names of summits. Your guide will organise local transport whether it’s a jeep, bus, horse or helicopter. Your guide will arrange accommodation and if possible they’ll select places which are run by local families, people they know and trust. The guide will take your food order and make sure that your food is safe to eat and, when you leave arrange payment of the bill. If you are too tired at the end of the day they’ll carry your daysack. There’s much more that you won’t see of course as he uses hard won local knowledge to make your trip enjoyable.
In short, our guide will look after you.
Who we are
I’m Nare Magar and I’m the Nepal Professional Mountain Guides organiser on behalf of this team of Professional Guides. I’m a professional mountain guide working in the Himalayan mountains of Nepal. I lead people on treks all over Nepal and have years of trekking experience.
Steve Climpson, a personal friend, is our UK based contact. You can phone Steve on +44 7831 135705 and talk through the requirements of your trek. Steve can then brief the guides with your thoughts and together we’ll draw up a plan of action. Communication via him means that there is less of your time spent on the phone to Nepal. Steve won’t take your money as he’s not a booking agent for the guides. You’ll pay that direct to your guide in Nepal.
Does this cost you the client more? NO! In fact it may be cheaper as there are no middlemen.
There is an old saying ‘hire a guide for a day and feed his family for a week’.
The guides all speak English. If you require a guide speaking any other language then we’ll try to supply one.
