Me and my guide, Indara. She’s a kind young lady from a family of farmers living in the northernmost part of #Nepal.
For $20/day she went hiking and conquering those hills almost 7days a week like it was nothing. Only to spend half of what she earns as she sends half her salary back home to her parents and 5 sisters.
I hired a female guide since we’re just a couple of women trekking alone. Luckily #3SistersAdventure, a trekking agent based in #Pokhara, provide female guides and porters. And so we met Indara. Her name means rainbow in Nepali language… She’s just about my age, so tiny yet so strong ^ ^ and very kind indeed. Told us many funny stories with her limited English.
For female solo travellers like myself who plans to do some trekking in Nepal. You might consider hiring a female guide just to be safe. Nepali people are very kind and polite in general, but just for precautions. And it’s also nice to have a fellow woman to keep u company ^ ^

The Chehtri sisters have been a great help managing my stay in Pokhara.
