Couldnt agree more Norsang was great. I wrote this as a separate thread but here it is again if you didnt see it,

Just got back from a fantastic trip in Nepal with two good mates. The whole experience was run really smoothly by our guide Norsong Lama(from the time he picked us up at the airport till he farewelled us two and a half weeks later). I also chose Norsang based on reviews I had read by many of his previous happy clients and I was not dissapointed. We had Norsang(guide) and his Uncle and younger brother as porters on the Annapurna Base Camp trek in Jan 2013. Everything was run so well. Norsang helped us hire good sleeping bags/gear at really good prices, arranged all our permits, transport, acommodation, meals etc, etc He also had a fantastic knowledge of all the mountains, villages etc He and his Uncle and Brother also introduced us to Nepali card games in the evenings and even some great Nepali music along the way! He was a very thoughtful guide always putting our needs and wants first. He had the flexibility to change our itinerary if we wanted to change(ie. speed up or slow down) and always made sure that we were having a great experience. Please contact me if anyone has any further questions.
