One of the youth from Nepal died while crossing Thorong-la pass and the other was severely injured. It is learnt that seven of the companions from Birgunj were out for Annapurna Circuit Trekking without guide and without the proper knowledge of the route so that they have to face such tragedy. Himalayan Region is not as easy as we think, especially tourists should be more careful while crossing the high passes. A guide or a person knowing the route well is the most while trekking in high altitudes. Though most of the foreign tourists book their trek through rgistered and reliable agency some of them go on their own specially local tourists go for trekking on their own. When there is the wind and snowfall in the Himalayan Region even a distance of 5 meters could not be tracked so why there is the need of guide or a knowledgeable person who knows the route well and can take control of upcoming situation. If one doesn’t have the proper knowledge of trekking route, foods to be eaten while trekking, and pace of walking then he/she is going to face some critical conditions. If you book your trek with the reliable agency, the agency will take care of everything along with guide and porters who will accompany you in each and every step in your trek. So it is better to book the trek with a good agency who will assist you to make your trek smooth and free of risk.
