Hi there,

I would like to take this opportunity to recommend Raj Nepal, my great guide and friend in Nepal. We hiked, just the 2 of us, from Jiri to Everest which was a 22 day hike. He flawlessly guided me through the entire trek and showed me interesting things along the way that I would never have seen had I gone alone. He has a great sense of humour and we spent a great deal of the hike laughing at each other's jokes and cultural differences. He taught me many things along the way including information on flora and fauna and many Nepali words. He was an exceptional diplomat when dealing with the Maoist rebels and the Army that we met along the way.

I would recommend Raj Nepal to anyone interested in trekking in Nepal, especially the Jiri-Everest route and the Annapurna Circuit.

Here is his contact information:

I would like to second this reccomendation. I trekked from Lukla to Base Camp, across the Chola Pass and around Gokyo in the Everest region with Raj (Oct 3 - Oct 17 2007), and I had a thoroughly good experience. Raj is friendly, knowledgeable (on subjects ranging from Nepali geography to politics), and helpful. He also has a good sense of humor - a trait that comes in handy on any Himalayan trek. I got sick from the altitude right off the bat, in Phakding, and without Raj's aid, encouragement and positive outlook I might not have made it. Thankfully my strength returned and I went on to have a great trek. By the time I was done Raj was a friend as well as I guide, and back in Kathmandu I celebrated the Hindu Dashain festival with him and his family.

Raj has trekked all over Nepal, including some of the restricted areas and roads less travelled. If you're looking for a trekking guide, give Raj a try and I promise you won't be disappointed.
