“Cholendra was the best tour guide, always there to help with everything you needed, both while trekking and at the guest houses. He is very caring, careful, knowledgeable and has a great sense of humour. The bad thing about him is he makes you feel so unfit! He was jumping like a mountain goat from rock to rock while I was just trying to get myself slowly to the next stop! If you are planning a trek Nepal he is the man to see.”
Every day the world is facing a big issue of environmental pollution and in Nepal as well. Our field staffs are quite conscious about environmental pollution at any time and we encourage to all. We would suggest to our guest to use boiled water or water purification pills than buying a bottle of water, it helps to avoid plastic bottles which can takes long time to disappear. During the trek, if possible you can order same items food in a group which minimizes the fuel used and to make campfire is almost forbidden. We would encourage being a responsible traveler so, just leaving foot-print on the trail and bring out all non-biodegradable which you had.
