About Me

My trekking license.

Namaste! I'm Ankit, an experienced trekking guide here to guide you on your journey in this beautiful Himalayan country.

To help you get to know me better, I would like to tell you a little about myself and how I became a trekking guide.

I live in Pokhara. My home village where I grow up is called Serachour and is in the region of the Annapurna Himalayan. My family still lives there.

My first trekking work was being a porter in 2004. I trained with the Pokhara Tourism Training Centre and his majesty’s government of Nepal Ministry of Culture Tourism Civil Aviation to become a professional governmental licensed guide. My guide training consisted of two parts.1- The theoretical course lasted for three months and provided the general information mainly about the topography, culture, scenery, history, zoology, first aid, training with board information about how to recognize and treat altitude sickness, rescue, and other associated topics, and 2 - A practical part that was 45 days in length, including rock climbing and camping organization.

I started to work for a company first as an assistant guide accompanying senior group leaders after many trips into various regions.

I escorted my first group as a senior guide in 2007. This is my 10th year as either a senior guide of independent trekking guide or tour operator in Nepal.

I became an independent guide because during the period I worked as a guide for other trekking companies. I saw a lot mishandling of clients and trekking staff because of the tight competition among trekking agencies. Working independently was a risky decision for me because big companies are able to attract many tourists through their advertisement. Being an independent trekking guide I am able to work directly with my clients and provide them with quality service. I emphasize to have clear understanding between us while having adventures, and I will jointly plan your visit and trek together via email and through these emails we will also become friends.

Your safety and well-being are at the top of my priority. I will create a trek or tour that meets both your interests and needs. I am able to handle all the logistical info of your trip from meeting you at the airport to making reservations at guest house/hotels, arranging bus and air transportation, and most importantly to over see every detail of the trek in our amazing mountains. I will make sure Nepal is everything you imagined it to be!

Please write to me if you have more questions about me that I have not addressed here in this little piece about me.

Welcome to Nepal!

Nepal is a wonderful land located in Southern Asia between India and China (Tibet). Its terrain ranges from subtropical jungle to the snow-capped Himalayan mountains and contains 8 of the World’s in 14 tallest Mountains. The best known and highest of all is Mt. Everest (8848m) which lies on the northern boarder of the country. The world’s third highest mountain, Kanchanjunga, is also in Nepal.

Nepal is a country of amazing extremes with three distinct regions – plains, hill and mountain, five climate zones -Tropical, Temperate, Cold, Sub-Arctic and Arctic, and four seasons, summer (with monsoon season), autumn, winter and spring.

The cultural landscape is equally diverse and the people are very friendly.


Nepal is the ultimate destination for the trekking enthusiasts, offering myriad possibilities from the short and easy to the demanding challenges of the snowy peaks. Easy, moderate or rigorous, there is something for everyone. Nepal has aptly been called “A Trekkers’ Paradise ’’as her terrain offers some of the most spectacular trekking routes in the world. The immense contrasts in altitudes and climates found here support an equally spectacular mix of lifestyles, vegetation and wildlife. In addition, trekking in Nepal is as much a cultural experience as a Himalayan adventure. In the shadows and foothills of the icy pinnacles of the Himalayas, one passes picturesque charming villages inhabited by diverse ethnic groups. Treks vary from expedition, high altitude treks to simple, easy-paced walks. For more information about trekking, please contact me.
