Our party consisted of 5 New Zealanders of both sexes aged between 53 and 61. Organising the trek through Sherpana was very easy and stress free. We chose Nawang Chimi Sherpa as our guide and found him to be extremely professional, knowledgeable, considerate and friendly. We arranged to meet him at our Kathmandu hotel the day before the trek and he arrived promptly and was able to answer all our questions. Chimi did everything he could to make the days enjoyable by everyone, ensured we were safe at all times, and always checked we hadn't left any of our gear behind. He picked the best accommodation available and always looked after us in the teahouses. Chimi also chose great porters who were very friendly and at times went above and beyond our expectations. As we found by observing other trekking groups, one of the most important aspects for a successful trek is to have a great relationship and good communication with your guide. Chimi was excellent in this regard and we recommend him without hesitation. Thank you Chimi and our wonderful porters for looking after us so well.

Chimi (Nawang) really contributed to ease and enjoyment of the trek. The 20 days my son and I spent with him went so well. We had nots of fun chatting with him learning about Nepali life and his experiences. He was very connected to the local people. This made the trek more interesting as he kept us informed about what the people we met were saying. Nawang helped in many ways including getting good prices and services, finding best route (especially so we could avoid vehicles where roads and trails occurred) and keeping us on schedule.

Nawang Chimi Sherpa withdrew as the guide for Around Manaslu via Tsum Valley 14 days before the trek was scheduled to depart on Apr 15, 2019, and 6 months after the trek was confirmed.
I have exams and it's conducted by the government and they don't have the exact date for the exam,so they publish exam routine unexpectedly and it's always during the season.
