Saan is defenetly a good man but he doesn't interact as a guide would naturally do. If you are looking for someone motivating or friendly eloquent he is not the one. He thinks being professional just sticking with few skills and rules also not asking for your opinion. We expect to enjoy more knokedge and passion and feel a bit more sociable.

Sanjaya was the ideal guide. This was our first time using a guide for trekking and were a bit nervous about being with someone for the duration of the trip when we’re used to being alone. Our fear turned out to be unwarranted as Sanjaya was flexible, easy to be around and knowledgeable. He was always there to answer questions about the trek, surrounding area and culture all while being socially keen and giving us our space when appropriate. He lined up our rides and accommodations flawlessly and met us the day before we left to ensure we had the appropriate gear and to answer any questions we had.. The trek was great and Sanjaya made it even better. We consider Sanjaya a friend and hope to be back in Nepal soon for another journey with him.

We had an amazing two and a half weeks! Sanjaya is a wonderful guide, he can tell you a lot about the preparations, the trail, the mountains, and the trail areas. We really could enjoy the trail more because we took a guide and Sanjaya made that possible. He can arrange everything for you if you ask and he will help you whenever you need and wherever he can!
