Pemba is originally from Churikharka, a village near Lukla in the Khumbu (Everest) Region of Nepal. While growing up in the mountains he had roundabout way into life as a trekking guide. He painted thangkas (Buddhist religious paintings) then worked in a hotel in the United Arab Emirates before returning to Nepal and now living in Kathmandu. Pemba still enjoys thangka painting in his free time as well as doing work around the house. He is a government licensed trekking guide and has lead treks throughout the Khumbu (Everest) Region.

We were so lucky we booked our trek to travel with Pemba. He met us at our hotel the day before departure to go through the itinerary and to give us some advice on what to expect and some recommendations for last minute purchases to make the trip more comfortable. Once we started Pemba took care of everything! It didn't matter if it was helping by holding a bag or water bottle while we adjust our packs or encouraging us to take as many breaks as we needed. He always looked after us first & when we arrived in camp he ensured we were served our food first and had our choice of rooms. He happily took photos for us and knew exactly when to chime in and help and when to give us some space. When other trekkers saw how friendly, helpful & knowledgeable Pemba was we were actually offered money to swap guides. (There are some mediocre guides read reviews and choose carefully) and on many occasions other trekkers were asking Pemba for help and advice instead of their own guide. Let me put it this simply - If you're going to go on a trek if you want the best guide, book Pemba.
