Recently we returned from a four-day trek with a friend in the Annapurna Himalayan range. Boasting spectacular scenery, rugged terrain and extremely welcoming locals, I've never visited another place on earth like Annapurna.
Helping us get the most out of our trek was our friendly and knowledgeable guide Sanjib Adhikari, a specialist trekking guide and expedition organizer based in Thamel, the bustling heart of Kathmandu. He skillfully guided us across treacherous mountain passes, pointed out the rich variety of flora we passed and, in the evening after hiking, served our meals and played cards with us.
Knowing that there are quite a few other less capable and experienced guides than Sanjib, I'd certainly recommend him to other trekkers. His website is: www.nepalguideinfo.com

My husband and I have used Machhendra Tamang three times. Annapurna Circuit & Santuary 2006 (26 days), Annapurna Circuit 2008 (18 days), and Everest region 2008 starting from
Jiri (30 days) including Gokyo, Kala Patar, Chhamlang, over Cho La and Kongma La passes, up Gokyo Ri, Kala Patar and Chhukhung Ri.
Machhendra speaks very good English and is both a professional trekking and climbing guide. He has experience trekking throughout Nepal and organizing and leading expeditions to many trekking peaks (Island, Mera, and Pisang Peaks). He was an excellent guide for us trekking in Everest and Annapurna regions.
Some examples of his proactiveness includes asking porter friends to secure lodging for us when conditions were crowded, cooking for us when the kitchen staff was running late (he is an outstanding cook), and making recommendations on avoiding any AMS. Machhendra carried about 15 kilos for me in the Everest region. Machhendra helped us to plan and implement the treks we envisioned and we highly recommend him. If Machhendra very busy please contact his friend Narayan pandey.His Email cnp.kd2@gmail.com.
