Indigenous guides live and work in the area all year round, not just visiting occasionally for specific group treks. Therefore, they are intimately aware of the mountain in all its moods and familiar with local conditions as they develop.
They are also more knowledgeable about flora and fauna in varied zones to geology and local history, having taken every opportunity to educate themselves on the subjects of importance in their work: subjects they have mastered not only by study, but by close personal acquaintance over a lifetime and passed on from generation to generation.
Local guides are used to climbing the mountain on a twice-monthly basis, negotiating its trails with diverse groups of visitors, whereas visiting guides only climb a limited number of times a year – around 2-3 times on average.
