We like to Work as a Team: Guide & Porter
As a trekking guide I work with my cousin as a porter. I want to work with a porter for the following reasons:
- The services of a porter are invaluable during the trip. My clients welcome taking a porter along. It frees them up to have a more enjoyable trip because they don’t have to carry as much weight themselves especially in challenging terrain with many elevation changes. He carries a max. 20 kg load.
- The experience the porter gains is an important step to become a guide himself.
- He is an important source of support in emergency situations.
- We have done many trips together and I have complete confidence in his ability. We work well as a team.
