I am a self-employed licenced guide who has been working in the tourism industry as a trekking guide since 1990. Over a decade of experience trekking in the Himalayas of Nepal has given me immense enjoyment. Mountain trekking offers individuals, regardless of their abilities, the opportunity to make new friends, learn more about the natural and cultural diversities of Nepal, as well as settle into the profound lessons offered by nature. A mountain trip in Nepal is a journey which can change the way you see the world.

An expert guide can help fulfill your goals of a safe, enjoyable and exotic trekking experience. Opportunities for trekking exist in a variety of areas in Nepal.

See you in the Mountains!

Nepal is a land rich in natural and cultural diversities, where you will find opportunities for sightseeing, cultural tours and many different adventures. This delightful diversity is the result of a widely varying ecosystem supporting an array of vegetation types, wildlife species, cultures and habitats. The land changes from the sweltering tropical jungle in the south to the freezing snow-covered heights in the north.

In Nepal, you will find eight of the ten highest peaks on earth, including Everest. You will also find within this country the deepest gorge; Tilicho, the highest lake (no fish recorded); and Lumbini, the birthplace of Buddha. It is an exhilarating unlimited destination for travelers. Come and enjoy all your adventurous hobbies. Explore your imagination today.

The Annapurna Mountain Range is the most popular destination among travelers in Nepal. Treks in this part of the country offer a great deal of cultural and geographical diversity. Throughout the trip, one is surrounded by incredibly beautiful close-up views of our spectacular mountain peaks. One of the best views from Poonhill makes you feel like you have made the ultimate journey on earth.

Another attraction is the opportunity to visit villages that are inhabited by different ethnic groups and their cultures. Gurung, Magar and Thakali people are the main groups that inhabit this region and preserve the conservation area.

A summary of teahouse trekking programs is listed below but I would also be happy to tailor a trek which suits your individual needs.

Trekking in the Langtang region takes in the complex topography and geology of the area, together with the varied climatic condition of Langtang National Park, including a wide spectrum of vegetation types such as a sub-tropical forest. Superb views of Langtang-ri, Ganesh himal and Dorjee Lakpa can be enjoyed. Animal life is abundant and it is an area where many endangered species live, including the Red Panda, the Black Bear and the Himalayan Tahr. Culturally, the area is home to several ethnic groups including Tamang and Sherpa people.

Also within this region is a chance to view 108 sacred lakes of Goshainkunda, an area steeped in folklore and mystery, set in the heart of Langtang National Park. During the August full moon, both Hindus and Bon Buddhists hold a festival at Goshainkunda, called "Janaipurnima", where many Shamanist rites can be observed. On the trek, we will spend time viewing many of the lakes and learning of their legends.

The most spectacular and picturesque view of the eastern mountain range appears above the popular Namche bazaar. The top of the world "Mount Everest" lies there with its several panoramic mountains peaks. For the daring is the "Kalapathar" which signifies a memorable rock climb on the black rocks well over 5545m in elevation.

The northern pass of Chola Ridge leads you to the popular Gokyo Lake including Far-fik lakes and Cho-oyu Base-camp. The Everest Region offers an opportunity for an experiment in your exotic travels to Nepal. Along this entire trip the trekkers encounter the tribal festivals of Sherpa customs. For example the "MANIRIMDU" is the biggest and most traditional worship event celebrated at Tyangboche Gompa elevated on 13000ft.

The Sagarmatha conservation area restricts and saves the indiginous culture and plants which are endemic along the trail. The trekkers enjoy blooming rhododendrons in spring; all feel pleasant with their glorious nature.

"In the spring of 2001, my girlfriend and I arrived in Pokhara to "trek". Being two women travelling alone we decided that we wanted to employ a guide to ensure a safe and enjoyable trip. We were so lucky to find Bijay to be our trekking guide. Bijay was a true gentleman and was always very conscious of our safety. He was also very knowledgable about the sites and cultures we encountered and always went out of his way to find experiences for us that were "off the beaten path". Furthermore, it must not go unnoticed that Bijay is very strong, carrying the bulk of our gear all day long for ten days. In retrospect, I can't imagine what we would have done without Bijay's expertise, support and knowledge during our trek. I would highly recommend him as a trekking guide."

"We went to Nepal back in 1997 and went on two treks by ourselves in the Annapurna and Everest regions. We had a good time, but we realized too late that we were missing an important cultural aspect of Nepal by not hiring a guide. We did not make that mistake again when we returned in 2001 and went trekking in the Annapurnas. This time we hired Bijay and he made the whole experience not only easier and mroe comfortable, but he also enriched it in a way that no one else could have. His extensive knowledge of the mountains, plants, trees, birds, animals, peoples and their histories and stories brought our experience to a much deeper and more profound level. He was also well informed about the state of Nepal so we were able to learn much Nepali history to better understand current events. We also took Matt's mom who has never done much extended hiking and Bijay made her feel extremely comfortable and encouraged without being at all overbearing. He would simply walk slower and point out things we may have missed if we were going fast. Bijay met us at whatever level we needed without even having to ask... he just knew. He knew when to give us space and when to sit and chat. He was also always up for rigorous and adventourous side-hikes to keep us stimulated and take us off the main trails. Overall, he made our trek the best yet and we highly recommend him to anyone who wants to get a a better taste of Nepal."
