Mountain Guides

Our guides are our biggest assets. They are responsible for the successful completion of your trips and your safety, whether in the mountains, the city, or the jungle, the river, etc. Here are some of our guides.


The mountain guides are particularly carefully chosen, as they can make a big difference in your experience in the mountains of Nepal. They keep you safe, are well informed about high altitude sickness and what to do in case of an emergency. They also play an important role of the liaison between you and the culture, and can provide great insights into Nepali life.


All guides are liscenced by the government, and have additional trainings in responsible travel, first aid, high altitude sickness, etc.
