At the end of 2018, I started to plan the Kanchenjunga Circuit North to South (22 days) as my next trek in Nepal – the 6th one after doing before, the Langtang, the Lower Mustang, the Annapurna Circuit, and twice the Everest Base Camp 3 passes.
I did all those treks with my good friend Nachman – always without a guide, and only the last one with a porter.
I scheduled the Kanchenjunga circuit for OCT 1, 2019, so I have plenty of time to study and plan the trek to the very details.
Kanchenjunga Trek is defined by the Nepali authorities as a Restricted Area which can be done with a Licensed Guide!
My first step in the plan was, to find a reliable Local operator to work with.
I prepared a standard RFQ (Request for Proposal) that I sent to 20 selected companies.
In the RFQ I asked for 3 services: A Guide, Porters, and ground transportation (Jeep) - From Bhadarpur to Taplejung and back.
I have stated clearly that the prerequisite is a previous proved experience with the Kanchenjunga Circuit Trek.
After about two months of email back and forth and with 8 companies that were left as appropriate candidates I have decided to work with Pasang Sherpa the owner of Mount Adventures Holidays, who managed to provide the most “balanced” offer, and happen to be the most responsive via emails….
usually, Pasang responds to Email, in details, within few hours or less – I liked it!!!
Pasang choose Nima Sherpa to be our guide.
Nima is from the Kanchenjunga Region well familiar with this trek, as he did it several times before.
The same applies to one of the Porters who is also from the Kanchenjunga region.
The combination of Pasang Sherpa, Nima Sherpa and the two Porters was a “Winning” combination!!!
The professional organization, services, attitude, and concerns were far above any expectations I have.
Thank you, Nima for leading us safely along the trek, for taking care of us and for being so considerate.
Special thanks to Pasang Sherpa who managed the whole operation remotely.
Thank you, Pasang for the wonderful team Guide and Porters.
Please give my sincere appreciation and thanks to the porters who did a great job with a smile!
It was my honor to work with both of you – Pasang and Nima!
If someone is looking for a professional and reliable company for trekking in challenging remote areas in Nepal – Mount Adventures Holidays with Pasang Sherpa and Nima Sherpa will be a perfect choice !!
