Ang Tsering is originally from near Phakding in the Solukhumbu region of Nepal. Before becoming a trekking guide Ang Tsering was a monk and spent 7 years in India studying at a Buddhist University. Since 2007 he has been leading treks in Nepal, including treks in the Everest Region (3 passes, base camp, and gokyo), and the Annapurna Region (Annapurna Circuit, Annapurna Base Camp, Nar Phu, Teri Pass, Upper Mustang and others).

Ang is everything a guide should have and everything I was looking for. He was always concerned about my safety, always looking for me not to miss any detail; he is kind, respectful and fun; a cultured person with the courage to share his knowledge. I will definitely have a second trip to Nepal and definitely Ang will be the one. He will always be a good friend and a guest of honor in my house.

We would thoroughly recommend Tsering as a guide. He was very professional and worked really hard to make sure we were properly looked after and had everything we needed at all times. He was knowledgeable when answering our questions and gave us interesting guided tours of some of the places we passed en route. He always had his ear to the ground and was able to suggest alterations to the schedule to take into account things he had heard about conditions on the route further ahead (both in terms of weather and political events), which meant that we were able to complete everything in the given time and always felt in safe hands. As well as all this, he was also a lot of fun to trek with and we had a lot of laughs on the way. He speaks very good English so there were no communication problems. Tsering used a porter named Sulei (not sure how to spell this) for our trek who was also excellent, really hard-working and a lot of fun to spend time with.

Tsering led us on a 10 day trek on Annapurna Circuit and I don't think we could have chosen a better guide! As someone who has previous suffered with AMS, I was keen to trek with someone with specialism in this area, which Tsering proved to be an expert at. He helped us with correct AMS prep, acclimatization and medicine dosages, as well as made sure we were as comfortable as possible over our entire trip. Tsering is a legit mountaineer with tons of experience trekking, climbing and summiting some of the world's biggest mountains. He also has a fascinating background and is one of those few people that will leave a lasting impact on your life.

We set off in to do the ABC trek. Unseasonal snow meant that ABC trek was closed but we only found this out after we had started. Once we got to Chhomrong we decided to change course and ended up doing the Khopra trek instead. This was a new trek for us and Tsering. Tsering was very flexible and calm in his approach to this change in circumstances. We were relaxed about our destination and we ended up having a fantastic trek. Tsering looked after us all the way but we never felt he was overly fussing over us. When we arrived in the tea houses each day, he made sure we had everything we needed and made sure we were ready for the day before we departed. He was very knowledgeable having lead treks all over Nepal and was able to answer the many questions we threw at him. His English was good. We would definitely recommend him as a guide. A special mention should also go to our porter, Kumar (who often works with Tsering). He always had a big smile... even after the steepest climbs.

I had a fantastic 3 weeks with Ang Tsering who made my trip very enjoyable. He is very knowledgeable and also has a great sense of humour and we become good friends over the course of the trip, having many laughs along the way. Tsering will look after you on the trail, ensuring you take the safest route, don't take any unnecessary risks and will always help you up or down any tricky steep or slippery sections. I got to meet Tsering's family who live on the trail and learn more about his village which was a real privilege. I would highly recommend Tsering as a guide. He sets a very sensible pace, especially while accending and monitors your well being, checking for altitude symptoms. He always checked to ensure I was taking the correct clothing on side trips and encouraged me to change layers as the weather changed which he monitored closely each day and proceeding the following days trek. Overall, Tsering is a warm and friendly guide who I built up a good relationship with and who I wouldn't hesitate to employ as a guide again - indeed I hope to one day!

Absolutely fantastic guide, we were extremely happy with our decision. We did the EBC via Cho Laa to Gokyo trek and his knowledge on the area is brilliant. He lives locally here so he was familiar with all the teahouses, landmarks etc. By having him as our guide he was able to get us the best prices on our accomodation too. He was helpful in every way, nothing was ever too hard. He has also done many Annapurna trips and other locations all throughout Nepal. Ang has endless knowledge on altitude sickness and was very helpful when one of our group got mild altitude sickness. This made us feel very reassured having him. He has a certificate in the knowledge of AMS, mountaineering and trekking. We also had the pleasure of meeting Ang's wife and daughter, we were welcomed as if we were family ourselves. I highly recommend Ang for any trip in Nepal. You will be so lucky to have him. His personality shines through and he is warm, welcoming, funny and helpful.
