I would highly recommend Kumar and his agency. As a guide, he was extremely professional. Kumar’s expert knowledge of the mountains and long experience before setting up his business, along with his involvement with numerous philanthropic projects in his home village and in Dolpo, convinced us that we had chosen one of the best trekking agencies in Nepal.
