Shiva arranged a trek around the Annapurna Circuit for me recently and brought his young son, Simantha, along. Both made fantastic companions along the way. Shiva is a really competent trekking guide and travel companion with his constant stories, ready wit and helpful expertise. His knowledge of all the Himalayan routes is fantastic. And if you ask him nicely he'll even get his wife to make you dhal bat at the end of your trek! Thank you Shiva.

The ultimate compliment for Shiva came from fellow trekkers we met along the way who remarked how lucky we were to have a guide so personable, knowledgeable and dedicated to us and our experience. We could not have agreed with them more.

We did a 12 day trek to Jomsom and Muktinath and having never trekked this length before, we were both novices. It is without a doubt, that had our guide been anyone other than Shiva, we would not have had nearly the rich, authentic and thoroughly enjoyable experience we did.

When trekking with Shiva we enjoyed:

honest, knowledgeable and sincere discussions regarding anything from Nepal's history and current politics, local religions and culture, to geography and natural landscape
a sensitivity and sensibility to allow a good balance between conversation and respecting an individual or couple’s need for privacy
over 10 years of trekking guide experience
a respect for an individual’s desired pace and physical condition
an intimate knowledge of the best accommodations, tea stops and places of interest along the way, according to our own individual budget
and most importantly, lots of laughter
We would highly recommend any potential trekker in Nepal to enlist the services of Shiva Thapa. It is without a doubt that you will be richly rewarded if you do so.

Kindest regards,
