Individual trekking in Nepal Risky

Trekkers heading trek without guide and porters missing rate getting high in these days. The trekkers plan their trip alone just with friends however Trekking Agencies Association of Nepal requests them not to trek alone. Trekking in High Himalayan ranges. To make pleasant and memorable adventure trekking in Nepal the tourist must have professional trekking guide who knows trails and who is very friendly in the area where you heading.

Once tourist goes missing their family and embassy urges for search but they don’t advice them to go with guide and government register companies. Once missing, it’s very hard to find as most of the trekking trails in High Himalayas in Nepal are dangerous. In the wilderness, it’s also dangerous by wild animals. The tourist must realize themselves.
