He leads treks to the Annapurna Circle, Annapurna Base Camp, and Everest Base Camp. However, he has experience with most other trekking spots in Nepal and is happy to customize a trek just for you.

Santa has over 13 years of trekking experience.

Santa speaks good English, and has “reasonable” written English.

While most guides work for large trekking companies, Santa is an independent guide. You will be able to hire him for a fraction of the cost of using a trekking company.

Santa knows Katmandu, Patan, Bhaktapur and Pokhara well – he can guide people around the main tourist parts of these cities. He can arrange transportation to your hotel or the trail.

You may want to try a homestay in Santa’s village, and it can easily be combined with either a visit to Kathmandu and/or a trek in Langtang – Gosainkunda – Helambu (or some combination).

Santa also partners with other reliable guides to provide backup when needed. He is a good people manager who hires reliable porters who respect guidance.
