Himal guided me on a ten-day trek in the Everest region Tengboche Monastery Trek. My personal objective was to spend time in Sherpa villages and to see Tengboche and Pangboche gompas. My expectations were easily surpassed with Himal as my guide. His friendly manner enhanced my interactions with local people wherever we trekked. We traveled at the pace I liked, and the trek turned out to be easier than I anticipated. Since I planned to travel, alone I emailed him often before the trek. With his support and knowledge, I was able to feel well prepared for my first trip to Nepal Tengboche Monastery Trek.
