Inappropriate / Inaccurate? Dil Sunar Gorkha


Dil is a very fine person who describes himself as a Guide/Porter. His English is broken at best but he more than makes up for it with his enthusiasm to please. Dil will carry up to 10 kg of your gear on your trek through the mountains of Nepal. He will find you the best guest houses each day and will serve you fresh fruit each evening, even at altitude. Dil is ideal for the trekker on a very tight budget who wishes the experience and safety of a local, while trekking through the mountains.

Dil guided us for 15 days around the Annapurna Region of Nepal in March 2011. In addition to carrying 10 kg he arranged all our guest houses and transportation as we progressed. On our rest days he did our laundry. Dil always found his own accommodation. Transportation to and from the trekking region is your responsibility.

Please respect any Guide/Porter(and yourself)that you may encounter in Nepal. Never give anyone more than 10kg to carry. Always provide a good tip for good service at the end of your journey.
