We chose Samikshya to lead our trek because she was a nature guide as well as a trekking guide, and she was brilliant in both respects. She was efficient in making all the arrangements, found us a porter even though we only requested one at quite short notice, and knew the local conditions enough to advise us on the best schedule – we were grateful for the early start on one day when a thick fog descended soon after we’d finished walking for the day. One trekker in our group was rather slow; Samikshya was extremely patient, gave her a helping hand up some of the steeper steps and was almost literally propping her up towards the end of a rather tough day. She was happy to stop any time we saw something interesting, lent us her binoculars and spent time at the lodge after each day’s trek looking through books on the birds and flowers of Nepal to identify what we’d seen during the day. She even arranged a special surprise for one trekker’s birthday – far over and above the expectations of a guide. If we ever come back for another trek we’ll certainly request her again, and in the meantime, would definitely recommend her to anyone else.
