Hey all. Id like to do a trip to the greater ranges in October of this year but I'm having a hard time finding information about it and an objective that fits my budget (no more than $2000). A few questions that I have are:

Do I need to hire a Liaison Officer to climb 6500Meter peaks in the Garwhal Himalaya?

Whats the deal with Nepal and the regulations about having to hire a guide service to climb there? Is there a guide service i can pay to sign the permits and just let me go climb?

How much per day does it cost to hire porters in India? How much does it cost to hire porters in Nepal? 

What are some less visited valleys in Nepal with potential for new routes on sub 6500M peaks?

any help is appreciated
