As a single woman trekking in Nepal, I was a little concerned that I might not find a reliable or trustworthy guide. Luckily I found Machhendra.
In November/December 2008 I trekked with Machhendra in the Annapurna region for 18 days. It was a trip of a lifetime, and mostly due to Machhendra’s guidance. Each day of our trip held new wonders, pointed out by his keen eyes and kind heart. We toured temples most trekkers might have missed had they been on their own, or with a guide of less experience. Even when temples were closed he would seek out the caretaker to open the doors and give us a tour.
Our pace while trekking was perfect, not too fast to miss the sights and not too slow to arrive after dark. There are many ways to trek through Nepal, but none better than with an experienced and caring guide like Machhendra. I am planning to return to Nepal and when I do, I will most certainly hire Machhendra as my guide, my friend, to tour the Everest region.
