I’d been in the Annapurna for 2 weeks.
Actually, I didn’t hire any porter nor guide.
Om was hired by my friend, Berta, who met in the Annapurna.
I didn’t pay him nothing, but still, he helped me a lot.
He is nice person, and serve employer so well.
and he can speak English.
He never drink alcohol during the trekking, even I tried to give him a beer several times.
Of course, he has a license for guide, and I heard that his personal record is 6500 m.
At the end of the trekking, we became a good friends.
