Nar Phu Jagat Start

We had a fantastic trek with Pasang. We really enjoyed having such a friendly and enthusiastic young guide and he was great company throughout. He made sure we had a good place to stay every night (not always so easy in Nar Phu in October...) and that we were going at a pace that we enjoyed and were comfortable with and that was right for acclimatizing. He knew every mountain and seemed to have an almost unlimited supply of peanuts and biscuits! He also went beyond the call of duty in helping us with other aspects of our trip, e.g. flights from Jomsom, when we were travelling solo.

Pasang made our trip a blast every single day. He is young and energetic which suited our group really well. He went out of his way to ensure we experienced all the food, culture and views that Nepal has to offer. He ensured that we were acclimatizing properly and adapted our trekking pace to a comfortable level for our group. Our trip would not have been as enjoyable as it was without Pasang’s guidance and humour.
