I highly recommend Tsering Sherpa of Sherpa Khumbiyila Adventures. He was our friend and trekking guide for our June 2022 Poon Hill trek in the Annapurna region and definitely made the trek a fun local experience that involved connecting to people we met at the lodges along the way. Highlights included eating pa-ge, a type of local fermented rice pudding in Tadapani while sitting around the fire with the lodge's cat; the ethereal Himalaya vistas we were able to see, despite the fact that we were trekking at the start of monsoon season in the beginning of June; trying traditional Gurung dress in Gandruk; singing Nepali songs whilst playing madal and guitar; eating Sherpa food like tingmo and shabhaley; and enjoyable + deep philosophical conversations ascending from Tikedhunga all the way to Pokhara Lakeside.

In Boudhanath, we also met Tsering's cousin Nima Sherpa who told us some impressive and compelling stories of his 7x Everest summits!

I cannot wait to see Tsering again, hopefully in the context of visiting his hometown and the Gokyo Lake trek in the Everest region or even in Bhutan!  Thank you so much for everything!

A magnificent experience! Tsering is so knowledgeable and attentive! We felt so supported during our spectacular Trek to Poon Hill, I can't recommend him highly enough! Tsering considers many important details, like where and when to find the best views, where to find the best food and tea, and how to properly pace ourselves depending on our energy and weather conditions. I appreciate how he takes the time to make lasting connections with locals along the way, and answers all of our many questions about the language and culture. This will be one great adventure of many! We are already planning our next Trek!

Thank you so much for everything! Can't wait to see you guys again!

“It was the spring of 2011 when I met Tsering and enlisted his trekking services, from the first moment until we said good bye, I thoroughly enjoyed his company. The adventure would not be the same without him. Poised with great humor, endless energy, and resourcefulness, Tsering proved to be an excellent guide, and moreover a great friend. He was always a step ahead prepared to make a suggestion to enhance our experience. He is an exemplary example of a great companion who will do everything possible to make your experience good.”
