Trip Report Had excellent trekking guide in Nepal

I am an American and went on my first trek in Nepal last year in September. It was a great experience overall.

We did a 12 day or so hike to ABC( Annapurna Base Camp) in the Himalaya's. It was a bit rainy this time of the year but it was lovely up there in the mountains with lots of waterfalls and bubbling brooks..... I enjoyed staying in the tea houses too and meeting the locals. It is important to have an knowledgable guide when there.

If you are looking for an excellent guide, I highly recommend my Nepali guide Suman...He navigated us around the trails and gave us tons of good back ground info. Having a local guide can get you better deals with the locals too.. The Nepali love to negotiate prices on pretty much everything...

If you are considering trekking in Nepal, I would email Suman at and ask him any questions..He can help you rent gear if need be. We rents subzero sleeping bags on the cheap in Kathmandu.

It was my first trek, but I would love to do it again.
