The houses on the villages are ornamented opulently with intricate carvings; the people weave baskets and have a wide array of handicrafts on pristine display throughout. In the evening, people tend to dance and sing folk songs with unique dialects and the people dress up in traditional clothing. Everything about the villages is charming and reflects delightful quintessence. As the trekking trail is relatively a newly opened journey, the cultures and customs of the people have remained true to their origins.

The most importantly, tipping is at travelers discretion and should be relied on good service that does not form the part of wages for your Guides, porters and crew although they are very much appreciated. In Nepalese culture, tip is the accepted and honored way to saying thank you (Dhanyabada) for good service. Normally the tips are offered at the end of the trek and this is best done as a group. Most groups will give the trips in farewell dinner on the last evening or last day of the trek, to mark the end of the trip. The amount of the trip is entirely a personal preference that may be more or less depending upon your perception of service quality, length of trip, budget and appreciation of their work. It is important to Discovery World Trekking crews who professionally take care of you all the time during the trekking, inspire excellent service and offer enriching journey- trip of once in a lifetime experience. We ensure that all of our crews including guides and porters are paid well and treated fairly with respect.
