Bal Bahadur Tamang

reviwer image

Bal Bahadur Tamang was born in Solukhumbu. After completing his eighth grade, he left his village and went to Jiri to work as a porter. His first experience as a porter was to carry a big sack of rice from Jiri to Lukla. He has carried as heavy as 110 kg of load on his back as a porter.

After working as a porter for some years, he met a trek company owner in Lukla and started working for them as a porter. He was later afforded the opportunity to work as a guide. 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.

Kim Rana

reviwer image

Born and raised in Gorkha, Kim Rana came into the tourism sector through his cousin Hom Rana. He started as a porter and fondly remembers his first every trip. He carried 45 kg weight all the way from Jomsom to the Annapurna Base camp as a porter for a group of 14 Hungarian trekkers.

The content faces of the trekkers after long and adventurous trek motivates him to become an even better guide. His first trip as a full time guide was a 12 days Everest Base Camp Trek from Lukla with a group of Australian tourists.

Kim lives with his spouse with whom he has a son and daughter together. He has a metal workshop and works there when he is not trekking. He learned his trade as an apprentice under a friend who was a good metal worker.

Kim does not know how he has a seemingly Korean name. He asked his priest who gave him the name; he even doesn't have an answer. Kim speaks some Korean too. Once, a group of four Koreans started talking to him in Korean language. He knows some Korean too and started conversing to them. They ended up thinking he was a Korean too.
