I think it is hard to find good tour guide in Nepal. However, Shailesh and his team are very reliable and had so great tours. At the Kathmandu tour, the tour guide has PhD(his name is Kumar), so he has a lot of deep knowledge of Kathmandu and Nepali-an cultures and religions. At the Himalaya trekking tour, the tour guide(his name is NaWin) knows everything about Nepal. Even other guide in Himalaya asked our guide where the Mt. Everest and other mountains are...(This is the point I realized it is hard to find GOOD tour guide in Nepal) I heard that all members of Shailesh company has grade A+ of guide school. This is why they are reliable. Throughout the tour, they are very friendly and helpful. Even the trouble happened about porter, the guide took a responsibility. I was just impressed their attitudes to their job. I highly recommend Shailesh and his teams tour.

I can't believe that just a few days ago I was strolling the streets of Kathmandu after having trekked in the Hymallias. My host Shailesh was very welcoming and attentive. His brother Na Win expertly guided me through the "hills" on the Everest view trail which leads to the Everest base camp. Kumar carried this 65yo couch potato's 8kg pack like it was a feather. He is more used to 130kg! Na Win and Kumar patiently waited as I crawled up the trail from Lukla, through Phakding, Namche Bazar to Tengboche and back. Uphill all the way it seemed! I think Nepal actually means "uphill."😅I had no trouble with the altitude and trekking 6 hours a day was just a matter of slowly putting one foot in front of the other. Very manageable for someone completely out of shape like me. The flight from Kathmandu to Lukla airport lasts 27 breathtaking minutes. Above the clouds, you see snow capped peaks and on approach you are flying right beside steep green cliffs. I saw the prettiest part of the 65km trail to the EBC. Tengboche (3875m) is below the tree line. So the trail goes through lush pine forests, deep gorges, and over long suspension bridges, which you share with yaks, horses and countless porters with huge loads. I flew around the world to visit Nepal and would do it again to enjoy Shailesh's hospitality
