I am wanting to trek from Lukla to Kala Pattar early November (3rd). I would like to do this trek Independently but have heard that a guide is mandatory.
I have previously trek Annapurna Circuit Independantly so would like to do the same.
Do you know if this is correct (Mandatory Guide) Also if this is the case would I be able to meet a guide in Lukla? I don’t need a porter as like to carry my own equipment!
Also what would the likely cost of this be ? I don’t want to go through a company and would rather hire a local person from Lukla.
Thanks in Advance Graham
