Ngima has been running his trekking company out of Kathmandu since the mid-90s. He specializes in treks and adventure travel in Nepal, Tibet, and Bhutan. His work in the travel industry has enabled him to visit many countries across the world, including the United States, England, New Zealand, Singapore, Switzerland, Austria, and The Netherlands.
In addition to being a successful travel entrepreneur, Ngima has initiated and implemented several charitable projects in his village, including founding 2 schools, a Tibetan monastery, and a hospital. Ngima was born in Kharikola, a village on the classic trail to Everest, and now lives with his wife and 2 sons in Kathmandu, Nepal.
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"I’ve arranged numerous trips throughout Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet, but I’m most familiar with the Solu Khumbu where I grew up, obviously. I know the trails, peaks and villages around there very well. Most trekkers opt to fly into the Everest region and miss out on the secret gems that lie on the trail between Jiri and Lukla.
I specialize mainly in trekking and mountaineering, but also organize a number of charity and community projects in the Solu Khumbu that specialize in bringing medical supplies to local villages. We have also been working on a project to connect foreign students with local schools in the area. And since the earthquake in 2015, we’ve been helping repair the homes of villagers around the village I grew up in, Kharikhola. I’m excited about helping people have local, authentic experiences."
How did you get involved in travel?
"When I was ten years old, Sir Edmund Hillary came to the Solu Khumbu, near where I was born, to help fund a school. Inspired by his visit, I enrolled as a porter in Lukla, and eventually moved to Kathmandu to join my uncle’s trekking business. In 1991, I spent three months in the U.K. which improved my English and motivated me to enrol in a guiding course and start guiding for a Dutch company operating out of Summit hotel in Kathmandu. Finally, I started my own agency - Nepal Myths and Mountains Trails - in 1996 and have been running that ever since."
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"When I was a porter, at that time, we didn’t have any shoes while carrying our heavy loads. Everyone around us was wearing comfortable shoes and socks, of course. At the end of one of our treks up to Everest Base Camp, a couple French members in our group left us each with a great pair of hiking boots that lasted for years to come. A small act of kindness, sure, but it made all the difference to my feet for the next 3 years! "

Private Three Passes Trek · Nepal - Oct 16 - Nov 4, 2019
In October/November 2019 two sort of old Australians (>65 y.o.) with heaps of hiking experience undertook the Three Passes Trek with our guide Dafuri Sherpa and porter Bimba Sherpa. Web searching had led us to the kimkim site and we had an absolutely trouble free time organising and booking our trek.

3 Passes Trek · Nepal - Oct 1 - Oct 16, 2019
I completed the 3 passes trek in early October - an incredibly challenging and rewarding experience.

He responded promptly to all my questions and requests and was even there to greet to me upon arrival at Katmandu and to see me off after the trek.

Great experience with excellent organisation. Ang Gelu was a perfect guide. Mny thanks for everything, all discussions and hospitality. Hope to see you next year
Trip to Nepal · Nepal - Jul 14 - Jul 20, 2019
We highly recommend KimKim (with Nepal Myths & Mountain Trails) for trekking in Nepal. Our guides, Tashi and Ang Gelu, did a top-notch job in safely and comfortably guiding us on our 5-day family trek to Ghorepani and Poon Hill. These two guides were personable and complemented each other well (Ang Gelu knew the villages and trek a little better, but Tashi knew more English). It was clear that they had much experience hiking in Nepal and in the Annapurna region. We felt secure in their... read more
Khopra Danda trek · Nepal - Apr 18 - Apr 28, 2019
I travelled to Nepal for the first time with my 3 kids and 2 other young people. What a fantastic experience. Ngima was informative and helpful right from the word go. Tailored the trip to our needs as an extended family group and obviously chose a trek that suited our fitness. Everything went smoothly from the first airport pick up to our wonder guide Pemba and our porters.
Nepal itself was simply marvellous. A mix of the bustle and fun of Kathmandu to the trek on the Khopra Danda track in... read more
Upper Mustang Trek · Nepal - Apr 28 - May 12, 2019
I was attracted and wanted to travel to Nepal for a long time. Be very happy that I had chance to make it happened this year. This was my first time to Nepal. It's really a great experience of trekking in Upper Mustang. I felt very lucky to choose kimkim for trekking planning. Kimkim provided a professional plan based on our request and took care of me whole way. I 100% felt safe and satisfied during the whole journey. Our guide, Chhongba, and backer Ram are very good. We discussed and... read more
Nepal Trek in Oct or Nov · Nepal - Apr 27 - May 14, 2019
Our Manaslu trek and the detailed planning and attention we received was wonderful! We work with an outstanding team, organized by Ngima, his sons Tashi and Lakpa, guided by Ang Gelu and pampered by the herculean effort of our porter Kunga.
From the planning perspective Ngima and his Sons were outstanding, making sure we were picked up from the airpot, shown where to rent & purchase trekking equipment and in my case taken to the airport twice when there was trouble with my flight.... read more
Upper Mustang Trek · Nepal - Apr 28 - May 12, 2019
We had a fantastic time in Upper Mustang thanks to our guide Chhongba who did his very best to make sure we have a memorable experience. Especially the fact that we were able to alter travel plans half way through the trip has been much appreciated. We can without hesitation recommend the KimKim team to anyone who is looking for a well organised trip that is tailored to individual preferences.
Tengboche & Helicopter Tour - 7 Days · Nepal - Apr 26 - May 5, 2019
We had a wonderful experience in Nepal. Seeing the Himalaya’s were magical. Nguma set up our trip. He gave us an awesome experience. Definitely a trip of a lifetime. Although trekking through the Himalayas is challenging Ngima set us up with an awesome guide and porter. Our guide’s name was Ngima also. He did a great job of guiding us through the mountains with no altitude sickness. He was super nice and tried to help us at every turn. During our trip there was a cyclone that hit India.... read more
Pikey Peak Trek: A Short Trek with Great Views of Everest - 9 Days · Nepal - Apr 18 - Apr 27, 2019
Our experience with kimkim was very professional. All the logistics were prefect in regards to response time, flexibility in customizing the itinerary and even helping us with a separate personal trip by changing local flights!
The trek we did was in Pikey Peak.. so not many people going there. Was very quite trek and beautiful. Although we could not see the mountain ranges for most of the trek due to weather. Our guide Mingmar was very accommodating and the porter Pasang Sherpa blew my mind... read more
Balthali Village Trek - 5 Days · Nepal - Apr 17 - Apr 24, 2019
We did the 5-day Balthali trek with our guide, Ang Gelu Sherpa.
It was a throughly enjoyable experience! Our guide was very experienced (has done Everest summit twice!) and knowledgeable and took care of us, while also being friendly and happy to exchange stories and information about each others cultures/countries/previous treks.
We were able to meet the locals, eat decent Nepali and continental meal options 3 times a day and had adequate accommodation at the tea houses.
The accommodation on... read more

Ngima and his team were very quick to respond and helpful with all our questions, and adapt the trip as circumstances changed, overall we had a great trip.
Everest Base Camp trek · Nepal - Mar 2 - Mar 16, 2019
Ngima and his team are great. They were really responsive and helped out with whatever we had questions/issues with. I already recommended them to friends to book their hike in the Himalaya at Nigma’s agency. Thank you for all your help. We will see you again.
Adventure and Sightseeing · Nepal - Mar 30 - Apr 5, 2019
What a great experience! Ngima was extremely helpful during the booking process and accommodated all our needs. The trip was extremely well planned and we left Nepal with the certainty we will visit again this wonderful country.
Trip to Nepal · Nepal - Mar 24 - Mar 31, 2019
Kimkim connected my husband and I to Ngima from NMMT. We communicated via kimkim's easy online platform, and Ngima answered all our questions and suggestions in a timely and sensitive manner. Ngima's coordination of hotels, in-country flights, guides, drivers, trekking, and cultural tours were invaluable.
In Nepal, we did a day of sightseeing in Kathmandu to see Swayambhunath, Pashupatinath, and Patan Durbar Square. Our guide in Kathmandu, Kedar, was outstanding: incredibly informative,... read more
Helambu Trek · Nepal - Mar 1 - Mar 9, 2019
KimKim connected us to Ngima from NMMT. We communicated via KimKim's messaging platform which was effortless. Ngima was able to answer all my queries and he did so in a timely manner. He also arranged everything for me which was really convenient. All I had to do was to book the flight. In Nepal, I did the Helambu Trek. I was accompanied by Lakhma (guide) and Pasang (porter). I only expected my guide to be able to converse in English, but Pasang could do it too and that was a bonus. Both of... read more
Namche trek · Nepal - Feb 24 - Mar 3, 2019
Was great to have Ngima attend to us during our pre-planning. He was extremely patient, prompt and informative with our queries in planning our tailored itinerary.
We were well taken care of from the moment we stepped into Kathmandu till we left. We definitely enjoyed ourselves thoroughly throughout the journey.
Highly recommended when planning a trip to Nepal!
troys trip · Nepal - Feb 3 - Feb 7, 2019
A fantastic trip!
My guide Lhakpa was brilliant. Really appreciated his experience and sense of humour, particularly when compared to other guides along the way.
Will definately do this again with Lhakpa next year!
Thank you very much.
Kathmandu & Pokhara Sightseeing - 5 Days · Nepal - Jan 2 - Jan 7, 2019
Thank you KimKim team for my bespoke tour of Nepal. Ngima organised my itinerary customising the places I wanted to visit.
Lakpa Thapa and Saraswoti were always on time to accompany me and fill in the details of the places I visited and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in Nepal
Annapurna Base Camp Trek · Nepal - Dec 16 - Dec 28, 2018
I did a Poon Hill + Annapurna Sanctuary trek, travelling alone (besides my guide and porter). Incidentally, this was my first trekking experience. Prior to my trip, Ngima was very prompt in helping me craft (and re-craft a couple of times) an itinerary that suited what I wanted, as well as answering any queries I might have. He helped made planning for my trip as stress-free as it could possibly get, while still retaining autonomy over my plans.
A typical day on the trek involved walking... read more
Nepal in December · Nepal - Dec 15 - Dec 20, 2018
All in all It was a fantastic trip, and I’m very satisfied with your help during planning and the flexibility you were giving by changing one night from Kathmandu to Balthali. That change gave the highlight of the tour, Namobuddha and Balthali plus hike to Balthali. Great day.
Nagarkot itself was beautiful, but the hike from Sankhu was very disappointing.
Nice warm up thru the rice fields. Splendid ending with Mountain View’s in Nagarkot. But nothing to see and experience on the was. Just... read more
Trip to Nepal · Nepal - Nov 1 - Nov 8, 2018
All my expectations were met on this wonderful trekking experience arranged by Ngima. The lead guide, Lhakpa, was outstanding along with support team of two additional guides and three porters. All paperwork and transportation were handled flawlessly, the weather was perfect (not sure how this was arranged), and the experience unbelievable. It was truly refreshing for me to experience the sincere kindness, honesty, humbleness, intelligence, and general good feeling of the entire... read more
Group departure - Khopra Danda Trek - A great off the beaten path trek in the Annapurna region · Nepal - Nov 1 - Nov 8, 2018
I have a few requirements when I travel: I don't like to fight for space with loads of tourists; I like to see inaccessible or unusual places; and although I tend to travel alone, I like to be part of a group to share my experiences.
From the moment I asked my first question about Khopra Danda, I knew I was in good hands. To plan a holiday into the unknown requires complete trust in the company you deal with - this includes Ngima (the owner of NMMT), the guides and the porters. No question... read more
Trip to Nepal · Nepal - Nov 2 - Nov 6, 2018
Ngima and his team has provided an amazing first time Nepal experience for us. We had a very long conversation via this portal as we cannot finalize our arrival/departure dates to/from Nepal, but Ngima was ever patient in waiting and answering all our inquiries. He was also very flexible in changing the itinerary according to our preference. He managed to arrange everything (itinerary, flight, permits, tea house booking, etc.) without any issues despite having a very short lead time on ... read more
Mardi Himal Trek · Nepal - Oct 14 - Oct 21, 2018
Our Sherpa Lhakpa was great and the porter was excellent. The trip was a good trip for us - not too hard. The accommodation along the way was mostly good apart from Low Camp and High Camp where the toilet facilities were poor and the fire/heater were not turned on at these places even though everyone was cold. The accommodation in Sidhing was brilliant.
It was great to be met and farewelled by Ngima - the parting gift was a lovely touch.
Trip to Nepal · Nepal - Oct 15 - Oct 24, 2018
My husband and I had a wonderful trip organised by Ngima and his family. The whole experience has been breathtaking and it will remain in our memories for a long time. We chose to visit Kathmandu for two days , we then drove to Bandipur in private car, continuing to Pokhara the next day. We then did a three days treck with a guide and porter in the Annapurma, after which we flew back to Kathmandu. Our guide in Kathmandu was very knowledgeable and attentive to our needs , giving us lots of... read more
Trip to Nepal · Nepal - Sep 29 - Oct 20, 2018
Overall I had an amazing experience trekking the three passes. Lots of amazing views, Our Guides Mingma and Cher Sherpa, kept us safe whilst our friendly porters helped transport the bulk of our stuff. I felt a little bad about porters carrying my things, but then I was made aware that it does give porters a job to earn money for them and their family and can be a gateway to becoming guides themselves.
We did have some transportation issues too and from Lukla because of poor weather... read more
Trip to Nepal · Nepal - Oct 12 - Oct 19, 2018
This trip was really perfectly arranged by Ngima and his company, from flight arrangements to the incredibly good communication. We constantly felt well taken care of at all times. Ngima was in constant communication with our guide to make sure we were doing fine since my husband got the flu before the trip and I was afraid I would have to change our itinerary during the trek. I need to specially thank our guide Chhongba and our porter Dawa, they instantly became friends and without their... read more
Make the most of time · Nepal - Oct 1 - Oct 19, 2018
Kimkim performed great on providing a safe and reliable platform to connect with great team, perform payments safely and communicate effectively right from planning the trip, during the trip and even after the trip had concluded.
Ngima was great at communicating promptly from trip planning till the time, I left Nepal. After the commencement of trip, his first priority was safety of all the team members (including staff), followed by making sure, trip starts and ends on time. Really... read more
Group departure - Everest Base Camp Trek · Nepal - Sep 30 - Oct 12, 2018
Kathmandu lodging: Ngima's homestay
Trek dates: Sept 30 - Oct 11
I had the most amazing trek to EBC with Chhongba. The itinerary was set at a good pace and they took care of everything on the trip - from booking hotels and ordering meals to helping me change my flights when my schedule shifted around.
The once-in-a-lifetime views did not disappoint as we were lucky enough to have clear weather throughout my trek (not a cloud in the sky when I reached EBC and Kalapatar).... read more
best you can do in 5 Days · Nepal - Oct 8 - Oct 14, 2018
Ningma and Lhakpa gave me an unforgettable week heli-trekking to EBC in just a week! The highlight was the stop at Kalu Pattar in brilliant sun - I was lucky with the weather which on a short trek can make a difference but NMMT did absolutely everything possible to make it the best experience with seamless booking and organisation at every stage and Lhakpa and I had a lot of fun being first into every teahouse! A prospective client should also look into the huge array of social work and... read more
Three Passes Trek: The Ultimate 19-Day Trek in the Everest Region of Nepal · Nepal - Sep 21 - Oct 7, 2018
At first we weren't so sure of how the trip would go, our guide Ang Gelu was very quiet and his english not great and Tira (not sure if that's how you spell it) our porter, was tiny and couldn't speak English at all... and wrong impressions is how we started the trip. Ang Gelu was just outstanding, well organized, had enormous knowledge over the mountains, the paths, what was safe and what was not. How to properly acclimatize. He was always on time, always ready for help and just amazing all... read more
Nepal · Nepal - Jun 7 - Jun 14, 2018
Pre-Trip: Fast reply to questions. Flexible arrangements.
Trek: Well organised, great team, great people - which could be hard as you live with them day after day .
One of us had never flown long haul and the other was on their fourth trip to Nepal, the service provided exceeded both our expectations.
So in summary I would highly recommend for both novice or experienced travellers alike.
Khopra Danda Trek · Nepal - Apr 18 - May 1, 2018
I was extremely impressed with NMMT and would happily travel with them again. Of particular note were the consistently speedy responses by Ngima to all pre-trip correspondence and our endless queries, all dealt with with great courtesy and infinite patience, plus the helpful explanations and suggestions made in the planning and lead-up to our trip (5 people). The impression was of an efficient, experienced team who can deal with anything that crops up. We were not disappointed. Tashi and... read more
Lukla to Three Passes Trek · Nepal - May 6 - May 22, 2018
Ngima's company, Nepal Myths and Mountain Trails, was amazing! From the first steps of communication to our arrival to our trek and to an additional day trip after that, we were responded to promptly, effectively, and with the utmost of care. We did the three passes trek with Ang gelu Sherpa as our guide. He was an exceptional guide and an awesome person. He made sure that our experience was perfect at all times. While our experience leads us to believe that Ngima's company would be an... read more
Group departure - Three Passes Trek - The Ultimate 19-Day Trek in the Everest Region of Nepal · Nepal - Apr 7 - Apr 23, 2018
Nepal is a great place but can be chaotic even by South African standards. Every trip to Nepal and Himalaya should be done with a guide from a reputable company.
From the start to the end of our trip we were in the fast lane. When people were queuing, either Ngima or our guide Mingmar got us to the front with no hassle.
There are premium accommodation options along the EBC and Three passes trek, however, most are very basic but adequate. Western toilets become a rarity the closer one gets... read more
Khopra Danda Trek - A great off the beaten path trek in the Annapurna region · Nepal - Mar 31 - Apr 8, 2018
Booking our trip on kimkim was extremely simple and convenient. We were connected to Ngima right away, and he was professional and attentive all the way through. Everything that we experienced prior to the trip was easy, smooth, and enjoyable.
The trip itself was rather disappointing because our guide failed time and time again to do his job properly. He seemed entirely unfamiliar with the region of Nepal that we trekked through and depended on our porter to do a number of things that he... read more
Mera Peak Trek · Nepal - Mar 19 - Apr 5, 2018
This was my second trip to Nepal. Booked with Nepal Myths and Trails Trekking/climbing Company. So Glad I did. Nigma Dorje is an absolutely amazing owner and operator of his guiding company.
By far the best communication out of the guding companies I’ve used in Nepal. He asnwers all questions and concers promptly and to your full satisfaction! All his staff from his fully certified and experienced guides and porters to his person taxi/driving staff for airport pick ups and drops offs are... read more
Teahouse Trekking in Nepal · Nepal - Mar 11 - Mar 18, 2018
We were very impressed with how promptly, patiently, and thoroughly Ngima Dorji Sherpa answered all our numerous emailed questions. His attention made us feel at ease that he was personally making sure all our requirements were being attended to. We were personally greeted when we arrived in Kathmandu and fully briefed on the details of our meeting with our guide and porter at Lukla.
Our first trip to the Sagarmatha National Park was a most enjoyable and unforgettable experience thanks in... read more
Nepal - March 2018 · Nepal - Mar 13 - Mar 23, 2018
First of all kimkim was very easy to use, it was fast, accurate and we would definitely use them again.
Within hours of our initial inquiry, 4/6 weeks before the trip itself, we received a message from Ngima of Nepal Myths and Mountain Trails (NMMT), a Kathmandu based trekking company and from that moment we had direct contact with our tour operator right up until the day we traveled. Ngima listened to our requests and was able to create a bespoke itinerary matching our exact needs. He... read more
Manaslu Circuit Trek - The Ultimate off-the-beaten-path Trek in Nepal - 13 to 19 days · Nepal - Nov 3 - Nov 16, 2017
Overall, very happy with Ang Gelu and Kunga. Both of them compliment each other, and they understood our trekking style.
Ang Gelu - Extremely patient person. Seriously, I can't tell you how many times I stopped during the first few days. He never left my side. Always trekking behind me at my pace. Sometimes slow and sometimes really fast. His stamina is spot on. It's evident he loves the mountains, the way he talks about them, later part of the trek. He made sure we got proper meals during... read more
Ghorepani Trek + Chitwan · Nepal - Jan 15 - Jan 28, 2018
Wow, what a fantastic trip. Thank you to everyone on the Kim Kim team. The trip was wonderful from beginning to end. Ngima Dorji Sherpa did not disappoint. He was there to make sure all the connections were flawlessly made. Our guide Lhakpa Chhetar Sherpa was fantastic. I described him as the mother you love dearly, taking care and looking after me every steep of the way. Our porter Nawn Pasang Sherpa was a true honor to have on the trek. We were traveling with a rock star, Pasang has made... read more
Trekking in Nepal - A Guide to the Best Trekking Areas, Best Time to Go, and Tips on How to Organize Your Trek · Nepal - Dec 27 - Jan 8, 2018
I have recently done the Annapurna Base Camp trek. From my first contact with Ngima it was so easy to arrange and Ngima answered all my questions promptly and helpfully and made the whole booking experience so problem free. The trek was everything I had hoped for and more, we were blessed with glorious weather throughout and reaching Base Camp at sunrise was a truly memorable experience. I was travelling with my son (I am 65 and my son 29) and our wonderful guide Pemba was so professional,... read more
Annapurna trek · Nepal - Dec 24 - Jan 2, 2018
Returned about a week ago, from a wonderful experience in Nepal that will be in my heart forever. After discussing my winter trekking options with Ngima Dorji Sherpa, the owner of Nepal Myths and Mountain Trails, I decided on the Khopra Danda Trek. Every day was amazing! I was greeted at Kathmandu Airport by Tashi, Ngima's son and began my trek the following morning.
This was a solo trek for me, and I was accompanied by two outstanding people, my guide Gelu and my porter Lakpa. They... read more
Ghorepani Poonhill Trek · Nepal - Dec 24 - Dec 29, 2017
The trek was amazing. The views were spectacular and those in my group were really friendly. Ngima was an excellent guide, open to suggestions while also keeping us on a good schedule. The teahouses/lodges we stayed at were better than expected. The Poon Hill sunrise hike and our stay in the village of Ghandruk were the most memorable parts but, all in all, we made a good amount of memories and friends throughout the trek!
40th · Nepal - Dec 24 - Dec 29, 2017
When Dimple and I first made our booking we had so many reservations about taking our two boys (9yrs and 5yrs) on a trekking adventure in Nepal. Both have grown up in Singapore and never been on any long walks nor seen that much of the developing world. With so many questions going through our head, being able to reach out to Ngima and the staff at Kim Kim in preparation for our trip, was just ideal. We were able to ask questions and get answers pretty much around the clock - everyone was so... read more
Nagarkot hike · Nepal - Nov 25 - Nov 25, 2017
The contact with Ngima was very professional. He responded very expeditiously, answered questions, made proposals and showed flexibility.
However, the tour as such left much to be desired.
On the positive side, the team arrived at the hotel before the agreed time.
But then the announced guide was replaced by someone whose name I do not know until today.
This person was sporty, young and knew his way. But there was a communication gap.
I would have expected that at the start the guide provide... read more
Manaslu Circuit Trek - The Ultimate off-the-beaten-path Trek in Nepal - 13 to 19 days · Nepal - Nov 13 - Nov 30, 2017
We had a fantastic time trekking the Manaslu Circuit with Lhakpa (guide) and Pasang (porter/assistant guide). It was our first time trekking in Nepal and Lhakpa and Pasang did everything they could to ensure that we were safe, and enjoyed our time trekking. They are amazing guides and people and we would highly recommend them for anyone planning a trip to Nepal (from beginner to advanced), as they are very experienced, highly skilled, and knowledgable. Ngima was also excellent to... read more
