Communication: Excellent! Very accommodating to change..Our itinerary was well organized to acclimatize us to the high altitudes we were trekking at. Pasang guide and Porter made our trekking experience especially memorable. Pasang knowledge of the mountains, the Nepali culture provided us with many special opportunities to experience the material side of Nepal. I would highly recommend him as a guide. Shyam it was such a pleasure meeting you. Thank you for such a wonderful experience in Nepal
Karin Brigitte Ruschke (USA, Chicago)
3 pass Everest base camp trek was our pleasure to travel with Pasang for 3 weeks. Even while the weather it’s cloudy the entire time, Pasang’s humility, vast knowledge and experience were always present. That more than made up for the weather. Also, his ability to speak four languages, his friendships and relations with other business people in the Solukhumbu took us to places and introduced us to people and experiences knew if any other guides could have. We appreciated every minute of our time together.
