After the massive success of popularizing and benefiting the local drivers of Ladakh, Kashmir & Himachal with the efforts of all the people who contributed and shared their contacts along with their experiences, it is time to repeat this into the other dimension of travel — Trekking and we start with List of Trekking Guides in Uttarakhand to start with & we will build upon this database with the help of each other for other parts of the Himalayas too…
It has been noticed that 1000s of travelers also got benefited with such efforts of publishing the direct contacts of drivers as travelers gets decent contact in the form of guide and travel companion too & drivers get the direct money in cash with no credits to middle men or their point to point tour instructions… Thereby there is a mutual benefit of both the Traveler and the local Himalayan driver, all of which in turn makes DoW Community one step closer to materialize its vision of helping the Himalayan lives & benefiting the travelers in one or the other aspects. Some travelers took the services of the recommended drivers by others and some cancelled their deals with the drivers who did not have good recommendations by the members here thereby saving lots of hassles on the trip…
By starting this thread of list of recommended trekking guides of Uttarakhand, the vision is same and clear. I would request everyone to please come forward and share any reliable direct local contacts of trekking guides you have and help each other in this initiative together. Even outside Uttarakhand, can be suggested here and we will move them to other thread accordingly for Himachal, Ladakh, North East etc..
