Role of Your Local Guide in Nepal - Nov 13 - Nov 27, 2018
Alex at Kimkim was very helpful with the initial enquiry, putting me in touch with Kunchok Nima of Responsible Treks.
Kunchok dealt very patiently with my many questions and several changes of plan and dates. All the arrangements he made for me worked out very smoothly.
On the trek I was guided by Gyaljan Lama and Keshab Magar. They were patient, kind and helpful, and spoke excellent English. Hopefully they will remember 'undulating' and 'clearing', which I suggested they add to their already amazing vocabulary! Their help and encouragement got me up to Khayer Tal, an exhausting but spectacular 11 hour round trip from Kopra Danda lodge.
My favourite village? Swanta, where I spent a rest day!
Thank you Alex, Kuncholk, Gyaljan and Keshab. Maybe see you again one day, for Humla or Kanchengjunga...
