Mingma is an excellent guide and I can only recommend him! He was very kind and helpful during our trip, and also very knowledgeable of the area - we did the Mardi Himal base camp trek for 7 days, which was wonderful. Mingma was showing us the various trees, plants and animals during the hike and was also able to tell us the name and height of each mountain we saw along the way. It was a memorable trip and we were so happy to have hiked with Mingma, he has a warm personality and fun sense of humour! Thank you so much! :) Mingma ist ein ausgezeichneter Führer und ich kann ihn nur empfehlen! Er war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit während unserer Reise, und auch sehr gut informiert über die Gegend - wir haben das Mardi Himal Base Camp Trek für 7 Tage, was wunderbar war. Mingma zeigte uns die verschiedenen Bäume, Pflanzen und Tiere während der Wanderung und konnte uns auch den Namen und die Höhe jedes Berges mitteilen, den wir auf dem Weg gesehen haben. Es war eine unvergessliche Reise und wir waren so glücklich, mit Mingma gewandert zu sein, er hat eine warme Persönlichkeit und Spaß Humor! Ich danke dir sehr! :)

1st of all, thank you so much to Micah for his prompt response to all my queries. Based on his response I had fully prepared myself for this trip. Also I wish to express my gratitude for his excellent suggestion of recommending mingma as my guide. Mingma is not just a guide to me but more of my companion during the whole trek. He is jovial, caring, experience and knowledgeable guide, who seems to know everything about the trek, from flora, mountain, fauna and all the mother nature. More importantly I admire his love of nature and immensely enjoy the trek. These personalities made him an excellent guide. I have no problem communicating with him at all. He has very good command of English and I think his English is much better than most of the guides I met during my trek. His unselfishness sharing his knowledge with other guides and trekkers (without guides) won him alot of friendships. Some of the trekkers even asking me his contact. Despite he has many years of experience being a guide, he opens for suggestion and allows flexibility to change trek itinerary based on my needs. Because of this, I earned extra one rest day in pokahra by completing the trek ahead of time. Besides, I have also gained alot of insights into Nepalis social life and culture including some simple Nepali's language through him. During my trek, I was assisted by a Porter named munbaktur (not sure if I spelt his name correctly). Despite he hardly speaks any English, he is a super cheerful and easy going man. He is caring too. I remember few occasions he held my hand when I almost fell. They were my great companion during my Anapurna circuit trek although I was a lone hiker. I never felt lonely at all! They had certainly enriched my hiking experience and my love for nepal. Thank you so much to mingma and munbaktur. I will definitely recommend both of them to my friends in Malaysia. Hope to meet my dear friends again when I return for EBC.
