Though, a copy of Lonely Planet Nepal will prove more than handy you must take the help of guides if you want to excuse yourself from minor irritants like dickering and all. There are basically three kinds of guides in Nepal namely, travel, trekking and water guides. These travel guides are versed in different languages. Traveler guides for English, French, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese and Japanese are the easiest to be found.The first and the foremost point are to pick up a right kind of guide. Your best bet is a government approved and licensed guide. You can check out the names and rates of these guides on the official tourism website of Nepal or pick up the list from the tourist help cell at the Tribhuwan Airport. These are trained guides and are well versed in the history and culture of Nepal. There is another edge these guides have over the unlicensed guides. In case they cheat you off or run away with your stuff, you can always call on the helpline number and file a complaint against them.
