Lali (whose friends call her Laxmi) is originally from Panyu, a village west of Pokhara. She is both a trekking and sightseeing guide throughout Nepal. Laxmi has led many treks around the Annapurna mountains near her home including the Annapurna Circuit, Annapurna Base Camp, Mardi Himal, and Khopra Danda. In addition to treks in the Annapurna Region she has also led treks in the Langtang, and Everest Regions of Nepal. As a single mother, Laxmi doesn’t have a lot of free time but she also manages to study her master’s degree in English in Pokhara. She likes being a trekking since it allows her to “visit different beautiful, historical places, cultural and geographical place with clients…” and to “meet different peoples from different places all over the world.”

Ghandruk, Khopra Ridge, & Poon Hill
led by Lali (Laxmi) Malla




Laxmi was very patient and kind with me. She is very friendly and knows many of the other guides we passed. It is obvious that she has substantial experience as q guide. I had a private trek and she was very flexible in changing plans to fit my capability. Among my great memories are her singing Nepali songs as we walked through beautiful vistas. I will be happy to trek with her again.
