Amazing guide Kumar
In early november we stopped by at the office of Himalaya Hub to get some information on Manaslu Circuit. Puru, the owner was very kind and helped us create an interesting itinerary. He was very knowledgeable and inspired us to add Tsum Valley to our Trek, which turned out to be a great experience.
He made us a really good offer for the tour, so we came back the next day to book it. Another day later, we had our permissions and met our guide Kumar. He turned out to be not only a great guide, but also a really nice and fun person to have around. His english is really good, which made it easy to have a nice conversation. Sometimes even other trekkers asked him for translations.
Kumar suggested to spend the first night at his parents’ house which is located in a small village surrounded by rice paddies and banana trees. It was a great insight into the regular life and a good start to the trek, just on the opposite side of the valley.
During the Trek, we always felt in good hands. Kumar is very well educated and knows lots about Nepal and the mountains. Even though he is quite young he is a very experienced guide. We were really happy with how our trek went. The scenery and the people in the mountains were amazing and so welcoming.
Back in Kathmandu the staff at Himalaya Hub seemed really interested in our feedback and while drinking some tea they wrote us a nice certificate.
It was our first experience trekking with a guide, after two independent treks in the Annapurna and Everest regions.
We can definitely recommend trekking with Himalaya Hub, especially with our guide Kumar.
