He took the opportunity with both hands. As a guide, his first assignment was to lead two Canadian trekkers and an Australian trekker to the Everest Base Camp.

At present, he lives with his family in Kathmandu. He has a 12 years old son and a 7 years old daughter. He is very fond of the mountains. So much so that as soon as a trek concludes, he cannot wait for the other to begin so that he can be around the mountains again.

 his first assignment was a group of two trekkers from Canada and Australia whom he took to EBC…that being his first trip, it required him to ask a lot of questions to other fellow guides…he learnt a lot.

his family is now in Kathmandu….he has two kinds..a 12 yo son and a 7 yo daughter…and his wife…..when he is not on trek , all he does is wait for the next group to arrive so that he can go to the mountains.

He believes that it is important to give tourists a unique taste of places they visit- be it local animals or flora and fauna, celebrations or culinary experiences. He tries his best to always give the tourists a close view of the life in the Himalayas beyond just the majestic mountains.

Hom Magar is passionate about trekking in the Himalayas. He talks fondly of the mountains, the people and the cultural heritage of Nepal.

Nir Kumar Tamang

Nir Kumar Tamang was born in Solukhumbu in a poor family. He did not opportunities to get proper education and has to resort to manual labor from a small age to address the needs of this family.

His entry into the trekking sector was as a porter who would carry cooking stoves to trekkers' camp sites. Later he was promoted to a kitchen helper which required him to wake up the earliest of all and sleep at last.

Because of this lack of schooling, he had to work extra hard to improve his English skills. He did so by buying books and attending English lessons. His first trekking experience as a guide was the 12 days' Everest Base Camp trek. While on trek, he was asked by his guests about the garbage in the trails of Lobuche. He never forgets that one question and does everything from his side to keep trails clean.

He believes that the mountains of Nepal are extraordinary. He loves trekking the Annapurna and Everest for their sheer beauty and emotional connection. Nir Kumar loves singing and dancing. He can play the traditional musical instruments flute and madal.

Tej Karki

reviwer image

Tej Karki was born in the lowlands of Solukhumbu in the Everest Region. Mountain, thus, is a huge part of his identity. He went to school in Solukhumbu and was involved in tourism as a porter long before he moved his base to Kathmandu. When he went on a trek as a porter for the first time, he was carrying a load in excess of 30 Kg. But the mesmerizing natural beauty around him captivated him so much that he says that load felt like a mere 2 Kg. Such is his love for the mountains and nature.

He loves to share his love for the mountains to his guests and make opportunities for them to enjoy the Himalayas. Do not let his serious outlook mislead you- there is a fun loving and jocular person hidden behind the face.

He is very enthusiastic about sports, especially football. In his free time, he likes to play football, cricket and table tennis. He also loves playing chess with interested guests high up in the mountains in free time during the trek.

The trek itself was amazing and we really enjoyed the challenge of the mountain climbs !

The trek itself was amazing and we really enjoyed the challenge of the mountain climbs !

Ever since I was a little girl, I have always dreamed of going to Mt Everest.  I wanted to use a Nepal based tour group for my visit and found Advanced Adventures via Google.  I found Chet had an excellent grasp on English and he was really easy to deal with.  So my husband and I made our booking and started to train…  I have to admit I was nervous about someone actually being there at the airport when we arrived in Kathmandu, rather than some rogue website!  But all went to plan and we were greeted at the airport by our Guide and shortly thereafter met Chet Bhatta.

From the moment we were picked up at the airport, everything ran really smoothly and any last minute questions or concerns we had were quickly put at ease.  We flew in on time to Lukla airport and started the great walk.  The trek itself was amazing and we really enjoyed the challenge of the mountain climbs.  We made sure we did as much training as we could fit in before we left and it paid off.  Our guide was Eaklal and our Sherpa was Suresh.  They were excellent to deal with and we very well looked after.  Most days Suresh would beat us to the next teahouse and for the whole trip we never waited for than 5 minutes for our bags to arrive.  Eaklal spoke English really well and they were both more than happy to spend some free time playing some awesome Nepal card games that they taught us.

We mostly struggled with the cold.  We come from sunny Qld so the temperatures as low as -20 were a bit of a shell shock.  Although we knew how cold it could be, we thought that the teahouses would have fireplaces burning part of the day and night…  This is not the case.  Rather, most had ‘pot bellied stoves’ that we saw would only be fired up mostly between 5pm and 9pm.  This is due to the limited amount of fuel ie yak dung.  So it was hard to get warm once you stopped walking for the day.  But the amazing people, food and scenery far outweighed and concern about being cold.

The teahouses were pleasant and the food was actually really good.  It was such a good feeling to get to base camp – a big tick off the bucket list!

We had amazing weather walking up to base camp but some cloudy/foggy weather for part of the trip down.  We were lucky enough to hitch a ride back to Kathmandu via a helicopter – this was truly breathtaking flying over the Himalayas in a helicopter.  And this did not cost us an extra cent.  I am confident this only happened because of the good relationships and reputation that Advanced Adventures have.

We will certainly be recommending to our friends to make this amazing trip and to use Advanced Adventures.
 
A big thank you from Kelly and Denver Parker.

We can say that booking a trek with Advanced Adventures was the best decision we ever made.

We can say that booking a trek with Advanced Adventures was the best decision we ever made.

We traveled in Nepal for the first time of our life, at 49 and 52 years old, on October 2013. Carole’s life dream was to trek to Everest Base Camp. So we looked up the internet and decided to book our trip with Advanced Adventures, a Nepal local company. We can say that it was the best decision we ever made. Chet, the executive director, was very patient and replied to all the e-mails and questions we had for him to prepare our trip.

When we arrived at the airport of Kathmandu, we were taken care of by the Advanced Adventures team. They came to get us at the airport to bring us at a very nice hotel. The meals were all included and we visited the city of Kathmandu the next day with a guide just for us. For dinner at night, Chet brought us to a restaurant for a welcome traditional meal.

But the real treat started on the second day. Our guide, Lok, came with us from the hotel to the airport to take the helicopter with us. We were lucky to have an helicopter instead of a plane he said. Probably we were lucky, but we found out during our trip that Advanced Adventures makes sure to give all the best to their clients. Our guide, Lok, was always taking care of us in all matters, from our security to our meals, teas, biscuits, lodges and we never had to pay anything more than the package we paid at the beginning. Our porter, Bisnu was also so wonderful to us. He would hurry to lodges with our heavy duffle bags, so he could come back to take our backpacks so we could climb more easily to our arrival point. We noticed during the trek that we were always getting a little more from Lok and Bisnu than  other clients were getting from their guides. When we came back to Kathmandu, we had a party dinner and when we asked Chet if we could bring with some friends we made on the trek, he said: ‘’Of course they can come’’!!!
We were so spoiled from Advanced Adventures that we recommend them to everybody who want to make sure they will get the best out of a trek in the Himalayas.

Thank you again to Chet, Lok and Bisnu who helped us realized this wonderful trip and accomplishment to reach the Everest Base Camp. They certainly have a nice place in our hearths for life.

WOW! What an experience for life…Thanks Advanced Adventures !

WOW! What an experience for life…

I’m so happy and proud that I did this Trip with Advanced Adventures. My friends and family were telling me, if I am crazy doing this, after all that happened here. But believe me, it is so worth it. Traveling to Nepal is so safe, or even safer than before. The trek, the people, and the lodges everything was so amazing.

Thank you so many guys for making this journey so special.
