This question has probably been asked loads of times but I am having trouble finding any recent information on it. My wife and I are doing a 15 day trek to Base camp Everest, Gokyo Ri- Chola Pass. We will have 1 guide and a porter. What is the going rate to tip them. Which is preferred for tipping - dollars or rupees.
As for the Chola Pass. We are heading there this April. Do you think we would require Crampons as we have never used them before and might alter our route if needed.
