We like to recommend a very good and very honest guide and General Secretar. In 18-10-2005 we used his services as a guide and he is very good. We have done trekking to Gokyo lake and Everest Base Camp in the Everest region, starting from Lukla airport. Our group existed of six people from Belguim and we hired three porters also. We had much fun, Krishna is very capable, he is also very honost, when things go bad he always find a solution and he also takes very good care off the porters. Some people of our group had troubles with high altitude sicknes and he took good care off them.Now four months later we are still thinking of him, he is just in our hearts. In 2008 we are coming back to Nepal and we surtenly like to hire his services as guide again.We would like to highely recommend Thanks for your kind and co-operation. Sandra and Tony from Belgium.
I have participated in two treks organized and guided by Krishna: Langtang (October 2008) and the Annapurna (October 2009). Both have been superbly organized by Krishna. He is a very trustworthy guide. He guided both treks extremely well. He is a very professional guide. He is also a very enjoyable companion, and he has a wonderful sense of humor. He is very sensitive to his clients' specific needs and pays attention to everyone's physical conditions and adjusts the pace of the trek if necessary. He is very responsive and knows how to cope with unforeseen difficulties such as weather conditions when they necessitate changing the program. I can only highly recommend trekking with Krishna.

We got to Kathmandu, in search for an experienced guide that could be trusted & who was fun to be around. We found Krishna after a tip from another traveler and decided to check it out. And we must say that Krishna fitted perfectly to this profile. We did a 10 day trek with him to the Annapurna region & that was a unforgettable experience. He knows almost everyone around and every day he surprised us with his enthusiasm. When one of us got very sick (Nepali food, good but sometimes a little tricky) during our trekking, Krishna took very good care of us, and if your not tired yet after a day of hiking, just challenge him to a game of chess. He's not so bad. Also after our trekking we kept doing things together & he helped us in any way he could. At the end of our month in Nepal we were sad to leave, not only for the beautiful country but also because we had to leave a good friend behind. So, if you are looking for a professional guide who knows the country (he does trekking all over Nepal, whatever level of fitness you have!) and have fun at the same time. Not convinced yet! Just visit Giraf on The Road and send us an e-mail Greetz, Raf Moerkens and Ann Vanhoof from Belgium.
Krishna was my guide on a two week tour around the Annapurna range, in the first half of January 2009. Krishna is a good spirited guy, who also has a very serious approach to his job. He is very experienced, and honest, and you get the feeling that he is very concerned about accommodating to the specific needs of his clients. You can trust him to deal with the necessary paperwork, and I felt safe that he would do his very best to help me out in case of an accident. It can be very important to have a good guide, and i will recommend Krishna highly. I think he is capable of being a very good guide on the easy treks, as well as the more demanding "off the beaten track" regions. 20-03-2009 Mads Munk. Aarhus. from Denmark.
Krishna was recommended to us by a friend who had been hiking with him in the Annapurna a few months earlier. From our very first exchanges through email with Krishna it was already clear to us that we were dealing with a very friendly and professional person. The evident enthusiasm with which he was talking about the beauty of hiking in Nepal made us even more impatient to pack our bags and go. Once we arrived in Kathmandu, Krishna was already waiting for us at our hotel to welcome us. After we dropped our packs off in our room, he took the time to go over our hike to Kala Patthar. Two days later we were flying over the Himalaya's, to Lukla, the starting point of our hike. From the get-go Krishna showed he had organized everything perfectly: flights, porter, accommodation, food, He had it all covered. It was great to know that after a day's hiking we could just collapse in a small tea house knowing that Krishna would take care of us and get us ready for the next day. It was our first hike at such high altitudes, and coming from sea level, we felt it! Krishna's drive and relentless enthusiasm gave us an extra boost during some of the harder parts. His playful interaction with the locals which he has gotten to know over the years was heartwarming and gave us plenty opportunity to join in on the banter. The hike itself was extraordinary, and Krishna's knowledge of the environment made it even more enjoyable. Krishna got us back to Kathmandu in one piece and one heck of an experience richer. Krishna is an excellent guide and a beautiful person. David and Evy from Belgium.
My wife and I and a friend have had an excellent trek from Jiri to Namche, Gokyo, over the Cho La to Everest Base camp and back to Lukla. Krishna and the two porters he organised were excellent throughout - from meeting us the airport to delivering us back there at the end. Apart from all the basic things like routefinding, organising food and accommodation and adjusting the day stages to suit our fitness etc he also provided plenty of information and laughs along the way. There was never a dull moment. Considering that he is in his mid twenties and we were aged from 58 to 71 we got along amazingly well. He was also very responsive to our needs when my wife was ill for a couple of days which coincided with the Cho La crossing. All the food and accommodation was first rate and I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone planning a trip. I know from talking to him that he is just as familiar with the Annapurna region as around Everest and we have discussed with him the possibility of a Kanchenjunga trek in a couple of years time. We opted for an all inclusive package but he is equally happy to provide a guide only or guide plus porters service. He can be contacted by email give him a try. Dick Scoop and Jeanette from U.K.
